The changing UK climate towards online gambling has resulted in a number of brands re-evaluating their position. Increased taxation, tougher regulations imposed by The UK Gambling Commission and an over saturated market means that many sites decide that their position within The UK is no longer viable. The result is that brands either decide to close their doors to UK players only or just shut up shop altogether.
Other closures are unavoidable. For example when GVC took over Cozy Games this resulted in all the slot sites and bingo sites active on the old network being shut down over a period of 18 months. GVC basically wanted the software for their own brands such as Foxy Games and Ladbrokes Casino and not the 100+ sites that were active.
Below are sites that we believe have either closed down or have stopped accepting UK players. Our reviews remain for reference only and note that any offers, welcome bonuses etc are no longer valid. Links to all brands no longer work so you will be taking to our alternative site options instead.
If a site you’ve been using has closed then usually you should get notice. This will allow you to withdraw funds. If you miss a notice then usually a site will still have contact details so that you can finalise your account.
