Two Popular Nektan Sites Set to Close

Two Popular Nektan Sites Set to Close

In the space of 24 hours, we’ve been informed that two popular online casino sites previously owned by Nektan are due to close. Find out what to do if you’re affected and where you can play instead.

Nektan casinos are primarily aimed at people who enjoy playing slots and casino games. Their popularity has also endured thanks to the excellent mobile-optimised design of the software. Since introducing Pragmatic Play’s bingo platform, thousands more online bingo fans have discovered just how good Nektan casinos are. However, after the Gambling Commission suspended the operator’s licence earlier this year, a new operator of the business to consumer brands moved in, and it appears they have other plans for the former Nektan brands, or do they?

What’s happening at Nektan?

Over the past two days, members of two former Nektan casinos, Afterslots and Cupid Slots, have received emails from the site’s current owners informing them that the sites will be closing on 4th November 2021. Rather than directing members to other Nektan-now-Grace Media casino brands, they instead suggest that they sign up at one of two online casinos, either XLCasino or Genie Riches, both of which operate on the Dragonfish platform.

Both Afterslots and Cupid Slots are displaying splash screens that warn visitors about the closures. The good news is that having checked some other ex-Nektan casinos, it doesn’t appear that all the former Nektan brands are set for the same fate.

This may be because Afterslots and Cupid Slots were both represented by United Commissions who also happen to represent XLCasino and Genie Riches, whereas other former Nektan brands like Touch Mobile Casino are owned by other companies.

What should members do?

If you hold an account with either Afterslots or Cupid Slots, you will be able to access your account and play games up until 4th November 2021. However, before 4th November, you will need to withdraw any remaining cash balance and use any outstanding bonus funds. If you fail or are unable to withdraw funds from your account prior to the site’s closure, you can get in touch with the customer service team via [email protected]
