Malta-based online casino operator Dunder has confirmed that it will exit the UK’s online gambling marketplace by the end of October trading.
The online casino operated by Malta gaming group MT SecureTrade issued a statement to its players and media partners outlining that it would begin a “phased close down” of its UK operations, ceasing operations by the end of the month.
Closing its UK activities, Dunder has issued a timeline on its planned closure, within which the company will terminate all advertising inventory (media + affiliates) on 15 October.
The operator confirmed that it was no longer accepting player registrations and deposits from the UK.
Helping players close their accounts, Dunder confirmed that it had lowered UK customer withdrawals to a £3 threshold.
Dunder stated that it will also disable all UK withdrawals, engagements and logins by 30 October as it finalises its withdrawal from the market.
Forum users have reported that the following message is being sent out: “Dear Dunder Partner. We regret to inform you that dunder will discontinue its operations in UK. In light of the upcoming closure, we would like to make sure that you are fully aware of the timelines and actions required from your end.
“We ask for your immediate cooperation in removing all advertising and promotional material of Dunder in relation to its UK operations by no later than 15th of October 2020.
“Kindly note that this instruction applies to all marketing efforts with immediate effect, including but not limited to banners, pop-ups, social media adverts, hyperlinks, etc.
“We would like to reiterate that this instruction applies solely to the UK market”
Following its founding success within Scandinavian markets as one of the first online casinos powered by the Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) platform, in 2018 Dunder launched its UK profile seeking to become the market’s latest ‘online casino challenger band’.
