Last week, RedKings, a platform for online poker and sports betting, announced that it will shut down in a statement posted on their website. The company explained that after 13 years of ‘shuffling cards at the tables’ they have closed two of their products: poker and betting.

The statement further clarified “The casino will continue as normal and your account will stay active so you will be able to access your funds to play or withdraw at any time using your same log-in details.” RedKings had buried their foot firmly in this industry over the duration of their existence.

The company had most recently was operating as a skin on Microgaming Poker Network (MPN). The operator said that its player base can finish existing bonuses with RedKings until 28th April 2019. However, new bonuses will cease to be issued and the monthly Chase and Point per day promotions have also been stopped for this month.

Betsafe will take over RedKings popular promotions so that the players may continue playing poker at MPN, the statement clarified. As for sports betting, RedKings advised its customers to gets all their bets settled by 24th April 2019. RedKings, based out of UK, will continue to operate its online casino business regularly.
