RedKings Poker history
RedKings Poker was launched in 2006 by a company (RK Operations) registered in Cyprus, an island country preferred by investors to develop business. During the first ten years of operations, RedKings belonged to the Ongame Network, and after the network shutdown in 2016, RedKings moved its operations to the Microgaming Poker Network, until this month that the poker room notified both players and affiliates about its closure.
RedKings Poker closes its poker room on April 28th, 2019
Room closures are the kind of news we don't want to share in our blog. There are plenty of options nowadays, but for those players playing at RedKings Poker, the only path is to request for withdrawal of funds and looking for another poker site. The poker room itself confirmed the decision with a short statement:
«After nearly 13 years of shuffling cards at the tables, we regret to inform you that RedKings is shutting down its Poker and Betting products. RedKings will now continue to be fully operational as a Casino Room only.»
Players can take advantage of the current bonuses until April 28th, but for example, the Points per Day promotion is no longer available. After this date, the poker client will become inaccessible, and all the money in the accounts will be transferred to the "Casino" section.
Players shouldn't be worried about the funds' safety. Redkings is a trusted brand, which has promised that players can withdraw their money at any time. Of course, a small delay can be anticipated due to a massive wave of cashouts requests.
RedKings Poker: Conclusions
Why did RedKings Poker suddenly decide to narrow the scope of its operations? We couldn't find any information regarding significant changes in the parent company. We can only assume that online poker and betting stopped being profitable to the business and with the time became value destroyers. It's not a secret that casino products are responsible for a major part of the incomes of a gambling company, and many other products like poker rooms are kept mostly for branding purposes.
Which are the best options for RedKings Poker players?
Right now, the only option is to withdraw your balance and pick up another deal. Microgaming has another poker room serving countries with geographic restrictions like Russia, Spain, or Colombia — RedStar Poker. According to the information we received, players can transfer their balance from RedKings to RedStar without any fee.
