WHG’S 21Nova Casino To Shutter

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Feb 25, 2018

Affiliates notified of closure from February 28, 2018 after almost a decade of operation

William Hill Group-owned and Playtech-powered 21Nova Casino is reportedly closing its virtual doors on February 28th ending almost a decade of operation.

The email sent to affiliates Tuesday indicate that, as of February 28, customers will only be able to log in and withdraw funds. Betting and deposits will no longer be accepted.

The email also detailed the removal of “a few bonuses from our EuroGrand and Casino Club products very soon” particularly referring to payment method and refer a friend bonuses on both brands, and the Monthly Loyalty Bonus for Casino Club.

“While its [21Nova] closure is a shame, we’ll be using this opportunity to focus on making EuroGrand and Casino Club better than ever, as well as the gaming products on our main site: Casino, Vegas, Games and Live Casino,” the notification reads.

The news comes on the back of William Hill Group receiving a hefty penalty from the UK Gambling Commission for anti-money laundering and social responsibility failings (see previous InfoPowa report).

Brian Cullingworth

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.
