The globally known card-playing platform, PartyPoker, announced its departure from several markets. According to the latest poker news, the operator will leave the markets of Norway, Poland, and Montenegro by the end of 2020. Find out more details about the retaining reasons and other closure plans.
The GVC-owned platform, PartyPoker, follows it's umbrella company and leaves unregulated markets. The announcement means closing the support for players from Norway, Poland, and Montenegro. Twitch and Community Manager at PartyPoker, Colette Stewart, confirmed the information during the digital community discussion.
What will happen with the money of players from these states?
The business-management decision means that the middle of December will be the redline for users from the aforementioned countries to deposit and use their bonuses. Even though December 17 means nullifying all the bonuses and the last day to play, the login process and withdrawal will be available for some additional period.
The platform users were informed about the closure process the previous week. The only way they can return to the regarded 24/7 real money poker website is if their local legislations change. However, there were no updates concerning Norwegian, Polish, and Montenegro's digital gambling changes.
Among the other possible locations for PartyPoker's closure are Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. Those and some other countries get a delay for some period before the exit steps are made.
