Online gaming operator LeoVegas has announced the withdrawal of its Royal Panda brand from the UK market, with the website no longer accepting new customers.

Royal Panda will cease all of its operations in the UK on January 31, with customers able to access their accounts and withdraw funds prior to this date. Customers with a bonus balance in their account will be able to use this up to January 31. From January 8, Royal Panda is no longer accepting new players, while customers will not be able to make deposits or place sports bets after 20 January.

Players who do not withdraw their remaining balance before the end of January will have their funds released to them directly to the payment method on record. Royal Panda will continue to contact customers for a period of 12 months, after which any remaining player funds will be donated to the GambleAware charity.

“We’d like to thank you for playing with Royal Panda, remind you that you should withdraw your cash as soon as possible, and wish you every success in the future. As part of the LeoVegas Group, we thoroughly recommend you check out, who provide a fantastic alternative for players seeking an entertaining casino experience,” Royal Panda said.
