There was sad news in the world of poker yesterday, as it was revealed that players will no longer be able to get the high-adrenaline poker experience at 32Red. The decision comes after it was announced that the MPN Network would be closing their doors for good on the 19th May. 32Red have no revealed on their website that their casino will be closing its doors on the same day.
It will come as an end to an era for poker fans, especially those that live in the United Kingdom. 32Red had long been the go-to casino for players. It longevity has separated it from the crowd, after they there established in 2002. It has been hugely popular throughout that time, but this will be the final full week that customers will be able to enjoy the casino offerings.
32Red Customers Received Email To Announce News
The news was broken on Wednesday, as all players that have accounts with the leading casino received an email. The announcement would have come as a shock to the majority of casino players, especially those that don’t have their finger on the pulse of the latest casino news. 32Red’s email revealed that they would be closing their doors on the 19th. However, it also revealed that players would still be able to access their account and banking.
In the email, 32Red also went into detail about the games that would be leaving the site. It was announced that Bad Beat Jackpot is no longer available, while Five Party Jackpots will be decommissioned from the 18th May. Fans of the platform would have been hugely disappointing that the casino weren’t able to find a new home as they have a huge marketing platform in place. Very few could have foreseen the fall from grace of the casino.
32Red’s Advertising In The UK
It could be argued that no other bookmaker is promoted nearly as much as 32Red in the United Kingdom. The bookmaker sponsors a variety of different clubs in the second tier of English football including Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Derby County. The bookmaker got into a little trouble over the summer due to their sponsorship of the latter, as they helped the club bring in Wayne Rooney from DC United. As part of the deal, Rooney wears the number 32 shirt, which is also believed to be a marketing ploy.
32Red also sponsors Preston North End and SPL side Rangers. However, 32Red did have an answer to the prayers of customers still looking to play their favourite casino games, as they urged customers still looking for the same high-quality experience to head in the direction of Unibet. Of course, Unibet is the sister brand of 32Red so that wouldn’t have come as much surprise to fans. Unibet also hosts one of the biggest poker events in the UK. The owners at Unibet brought 32Red for just over £175 million in the winter of 2017. Regardless, it will be a sad day for gamblers in the United Kingdom, as many would have grown up playing at the site.
