Thrills Online Casino To Restrict Action To ‘Bank ID’ Players

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Sep 21, 2018

Conversion to PayNPlay reduces player base to Finland, Sweden and Germany

A decision to switch Thrills online casino to a “deposit and play” brand with services by the Bank ID facility will effectively reduce its player pool to punters from Finland, Sweden and Germany… the only countries where Bank ID is viable at the moment.

The conversion has been the subject of discussion on gambling forums recently, with a spokesman for the casino explaining that the speed and convenience of Bank ID means that punters simply log in with their Bank ID for super-fast withdrawals and deposits.

Registration and slow KYC processes are obviated because the player has already met these requirements in securing Bank ID status.

The change is scheduled to come into effect on September 17, with no new sign ups accepted after September 10. Thrills players who do not have access to Bank ID will be transferred to sister sites Kaboo or Highroller, along with positive account balances and bonus money.

Alternatively, players can close their accounts and withdraw their positive balances.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
