Counter-Strike gambling sites may not be long for this world, as Valve has sent a letter demanding that they change practices in the next 10 days or the company will "pursue all available remedies including without limitation terminating your accounts". The letter in question first appeared yesterday, though its validity was questioned. Soon after, one of the most popular Counter-Strike gambling sites, CS:GO Big, uploaded a high-resolution version of the letter and announced it would be disabling deposits and temporarily shutting down.

Valve confirmed the letter's legitimacy to Kotaku this morning.

"We are posting this as a PSA for everyone to be aware that other sites are affected too," wrote the website CS:GO Big, "and anyone who has items on other sites SHOULD withdraw them if they claim they will continue to operate."

CS:GO Big was one of 23 gambling sites listed by Valve.

Here's Valve's letter in full, written by general counsel Karl Quakenbash:

We are aware that you are operating one of the gambling sites listed below. You are using Steam accounts to conduct this business. Your use of Steam is subject to the terms of the Steam Subscriber Agreement ("SSA"). Under the SSA Steam and Steam services are licensed for persona, non-commercial use only. Your commercial use of Steam accounts is unlicensed and in violation of the SSA. You should immediately cease and desist further use of your Steam accounts for any commercial purposes. If you fail to do this within ten (10) days Valve will pursue all available remedies including without limitation terminating your accounts.

Around the same time the letter surfaced, another popular betting site, CS:GO Wild, pinned a tweet pointing towards a video titled "CS:GO gambling sites say goodbye", cribbing a farewell scene from Furious 7.
