Customers of NordicBet have one month to withdraw their poker, casino and bingo funds.
NordicBet is giving up on their international clients and focusing on Scandinavia. As of January 2nd 2014, the company offers casino games and the ability to bet on sports in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Faroe Islands alone.
Customers were notified via email, but no other explanations were offered. Meanwhile, international players are being referred to parent-company Betsson, where they’re welcome to “play all your favorite casino games, bet on all your favorite sports or participate in poker tournaments.”
NordicBet to conquer the North
The company’s email notification also contains details about withdrawing funds: “You will able to withdraw your poker, casino and bingo funds from your account at all times until the 02/02/2014.” Poker funds have been transferred to sportsbook accounts and all poker accounts were closed on December 30th, while sportsbook funds can be withdrawn within 30 days after the last bet has been settled.
In April 2013, Stockholm-based Betsson announced they will be buying Nordic Gaming Group, owner of NordicBet, for EUR 65 million. The deal was worth it, as NordicBet quickly became a leading online gambling and betting company, after Swedish gambling laws blocked out many of the foreign operators.
The gambling site has many foreign customers who appreciate and trust its large variety of games and betting software. Naturally, these clients are not happy about the fact that they’re losing their favorite betting operator.
