Just had an email that Thrills will only be available in Sweden, Finland and Germany as they are changing over to a PayNPlay casino. It doesn't give an exact date but they won't be accepting new signups from September 10th.
Players from other countries will be migrated to either Kaboo or Highroller.

I looked at PayNPlay in the past and don't see the benefits. It removes the need for KYC and full registration (as Trustly supplies that information) but that literally takes 2 mins to register and KYC isn't really that bad. Surely any AML concerns would still have to be done as usual.

I'm in UK so obviously haven't signed up to see how much easier it is, but don't see the benefits of moving onto a single payment method platform. Surely thats going to alienate a lot of customers.

I got that e-mail too. Sounds like they're testing the waters with their lowest-performing brand and due to the UKGC they wouldn't be able to operate like this in the UK market. Given the demand for fast cash-outs and lowering of costs by removing most KYC checks I can see it building in popularity.

Good afternoon,

As you might know, we are turning Thrills into a "deposit and play" brand. It's super cool! It basically means that you don't need to create an account nor register - you simply just log in with your "Bank ID" or online banking. When you want to withdraw you just click on "payout" and you have the money within 5 minutes. You don't need to send in any KYC as Bank ID verifies you automatically!

Unfortunately, the markets are going to be shut down for every market except Finland, Sweden and Germany. (the reason is that these are the only countries Bank ID is viable in at the moment).

As colinsunderland mentioned, Trustly will be the only payment method available.

This change will take place on the 17th of September. Until then, the players can deposit, play and withdraw as per usual until then.

The player's outside of Finland, Sweden and Germany will be transferred to sister sites. Even funds and bonus money will be transferred.

if you do not wish this to happen, you can close your account at Thrills and withdraw the possible remaining funds.

Kind regards,

ThrillsRep
