MT SecureTrade’s Rolla Casino Announces Its Closure In The UK

Rolla Casino

MT Secure Trade has announced its closure in the UK market.

The online casino, which only launched in 2018, has announced that it will be ending its casino services to UK customers on December 16th, 2019. The site, which was often praised for its vast game catalogue, announced the news this week but did not disclose why the site was shutting down.

An official statement from Rolla Casino sent out via email reads: “We regret to inform you that as of Monday 16th December 2019, we will unfortunately be discontinuing the casino service on Rolla.” The statement then explained that Rolla Casino customers have until January 16th, 2020, to log in and request withdrawals of any remaining balances.

It’s currently unknown why Rolla Casino has shut down in the UK, but customers have several more days to log in and play through any remaining bonuses or balances. Although the site’s closure is just days away, the website still allows users to sign-up and register.

Other Casino Closures

Rolla Casino isn’t the online casino to have closed its doors to the UK this year. In fact, tightening regulations by the UK Gambling Commission has led numerous online casinos to close including JackpotJoy white-label casino sites InterCasino and Vera & John which announced their closure in August 2019.

Casino operator EveryMatrix announced the closure of its white-label casino sites in the UK back in September after the UK Gambling Commission suspended its gambling license. In EveryMatrix’s official statement on the decision, the firm described its white-label casino business as “irreparably damaged” despite years of operating smoothly.

SuperLenny was another online casino that dropped its gambling license in the UK and instead relaunched as an online casino aggregator. This year also saw the closure of 1XBet after an investigation by the Sunday Times newspaper found that it had allowed customers to wager on cockfights and children’s sports.

ComeOn Casino was another site that announced its closure this year. In September, the gambling website, which has been around since 2014, announced that it was leaving the UK market to concentrate on more “favourable” markets which include Denmark, Germany, Poland, and Sweden.
