The two combined sportsbook and casino websites will close on November 30th, 2022. EEG announced the closures on each brand’s social accounts and respective websites.
In a detailed FAQ, EEG has confirmed that bets due to settle after November 20th will be voided and the stake returned to player accounts, and any unused free bets, bonus funds or reward points must be redeemed before November 30th, at which point they’ll be forfeited.
Players will also have full access to their accounts until November 30th. On and after that date, players will no longer be able to place bets or play casino games, but will have until December 7th, 2022, to withdraw any remaining balance with withdrawals processed as normal.
If the remaining funds aren’t withdrawn before December 7th, SportNation and RedZone have asked players to request a withdrawal by contacting the casino’s customer support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
EEG has stated the reason it’s closing the SportNation and RedZone brands in the UK is for a “variety of reasons”, including the “economics of operating a small gaming business in the UK market”.
The above suspensions and closures all come as the gambling industry in the UK faces turmoil as the repeatedly delayed review of the Gambling Act 2005 looms, with numerous changes expected as the outcome of the review.
