Closed Casinos in 2016

According to Statista, projected worldwide gaming revenue for 2016 was 50.65 billion US dollars, and that was supposed to be a 10% increase compared to 2015. We will update these numbers as soon as the statistics are published. For many online casinos, 2016 was a successful year that brought many new players, but some casinos had to go out of business due to low revenue. Of those casinos that were closed, some got rebranded and opened under the new name and new management. Other casinos merged their player databases with more lucky brands, yet others closed for good. Below we created a list of casinos that were closed in 2016.

Merged with another group

It is not unusual for an online casino, like any other business, to change owners. As soon as the casino is sold, it may join a new group of casinos owned by the same company. What happens to the player accounts, you may ask? In this case, several scenarios are possible. Usually, all player accounts stay the same, and the players may not even be aware of any administrative changes in the casino. Sometimes the players need to re-register an account at the same casino, or their existing accounts can be transferred to another casino within the group. This usually happens when the owner decides merge two brands that target similar markets in order to enhance their joined performance. For example, Italian brand IziPlay merged with a well-known online gambling site Snai Casino, and Finnish Leijona has joined CasinoHuone.

Redirects

As soon as the casino gets closed, all site visitors are redirected to another casino of the group owned by the same company, or a casino that does not belong to the group but is technically or administratively related to the closed one. This is the way the owners optimize their business by closing ineffective brands and transferring player account to more successful online casinos. As soon as the player account is transferred, the user may get similar service and support, almost identical game selection powered by the same software providers, and comparable promotions and bonuses in the new casino as they had in the closed one.

Closed for maintenance

Sometimes online casinos are temporarily unavailable to players due to site maintenance. Casinos may close for maintenance for various reasons. These include site restructuration, any updates in casino software and game modules, some technical work in service modules that include support and embedded payment solutions. Additionally, some casinos may close for rebranding that does not lead to a merge with any other brand. Sometimes the reason for casino temporary closure may become casino poor revenue. The owners may close the casino site in order to make decisions about development strategies, whether the casino should be restructured, rebranded or closed for good
