    Default 32Red Poker shuts down

    In an email to players and in an announcement on its website, 32Red poker said it will cease operations on 19 May, when the Microgaming Poker Network closes, and, in turn, is sending players to Unibet Poker.

    Here is the announcement:

    We regret to announce that 32Red Poker will be closing down on 19th May, when the Microgaming Poker Network closes.

    Please note that you will still be able to continue logging into your account, accessing banking and playing our casino games at 32Red.com after the 19th May. Decommissioned Jackpots

    The Bad Beat Jackpot has been decommissioned, and all five Fish Party Jackpots will be decommissioned on 18th May (full details). Any unused contributions will be returned to players, and any excess funds will form the prize pools of Freerolls for all six Jackpots (held on 18th May).

    Where to play next...

    Looking ahead, we recommend Unibet Poker, our sister brand, who will ensure 32Red Poker players get the warm welcome they deserve.
    PokerNews points out that it is "strange and is disappointing 32Red hasn’t found a new home for its poker operations."

    The company is advertising everywhere in the English football world being the shirt sponsors of Championship teams Leeds United, Derby County, Middlesbrough, and Preston North End. Their logo also emblazons the shirts of Scottish Premiership side Glasgow Rangers.

    Another low blow for affiliates. That’s really sad news indeed and these guys have been around for a long time (they started up their business way back in 2005) and now suddenly, just like the other fantastic casino brands before them, will suddenly cease to exist.


    Hi The Buzz, I just wanted to point out to you that you need to fix your link. It doesn’t work. I get the following message when I click on it:

    I Can't see it being a big loss to any affiliate. Another bunch of thieving traffic parasites, up there with the likes of Ladbrokes, Royal Panda and Video Slots. They do nothing but take traffic.

    Microgaming use to be pretty big "back in the day" didn't it? I'm from the USA so never played on it much but I remember quite a few brands use to use it.

    Yes, way back in the day. I propped high stakes there back in the mid 2000s and it was a literal gold mine. Made a solid 6 figures in my time there, playing fixed limit no less!

    They took a big hit when some group (I forget the name) that owned the license for 27 "skins" went belly up and screwed players, affiliates, and the network out of major cheddar. After that they were a medium sized network for a decade+, but had been slowly losing market share.

    Shame, they used to have a really good blog that detailed some fantastic inside information about the workings inside their poker room, but erased its content a few years ago sadly.
