For this reason, Leo Vegas has decided to pull Royal panda from the UK market and focus on operation in other global markets. The move is set to maximise profits and is a tactical decision to enable future growth between the two casino brands.
What This Means For Royal Panda Players.
If you hold an account with Royal Panda (and reside in the UK) then you will need to log in and withdraw any remaining funds as soon as possible.
The cut-off date is said to be 31st January 2020, but players won’t be able to add any further deposits to their account from 20th January onwards.
Furthermore, sports bets will also be unavailable from this date and players will only be able to use their existing funds to play on slot and casino games on the site.
The casino has already stopped any UK players from signing up to avoid any future disappointment, but those with existing accounts should be aware of these dates.
What Happens If Players Do Nothing?
If you do decide to continue playing at Royal Panda before their closure to the UK market, do so with caution.
If your withdrawal isn’t requested before the 31st of January, you won’t be able to make a withdrawal request.
UK accounts will be inaccessible from 9 am (UK time) on the 31st of January 2020. If you do fail to withdraw any existing funds, Royal Panda has stated that they will attempt to release any funds left in accounts to the original payment method. If this isn’t available then they will get in touch via email to arrange alternative withdrawal.
Be aware, however, that you’ll only have 12 months to respond with an alternative payment method before the funds are donated to BeGambleAware.
