Warning: Royal Apollo and Planet 23 casinos in financial trouble

1 reply • Last post

The owners of Rival-powered Royal Apollo and Planet 23 casinos appear to be heading for the exit doors very soon. It looks like yet another situation similar to Slot Power, Vanguard and Tradition casinos - all of which have been handed back over to Rival Gaming to operate.

An email from Royal Apollo affiliate management reads in part:

Due to the ongoing issues we are having with processing and Rival management we will be closing down our site in the next few days. We are committed to providing top standards of gaming and support to both players and affiliates. This decision was not easy, but the ongoing issues are not allowing us to offer these standards.

Rival has been hit hard by clampdowns on gambling payment processors and the only conclusion we can reach is that many of these small Rival casinos are unable to generate a profit. We expect further consolidation in the coming months.

If Rival Gaming steps in to take over these casinos like it has done in the past then player deposits should be safe, but if it was my money I would be looking for a far more stable place to play.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

This is now confirmed. These guys are gone.

Royal Apollo and Planet 23 casinos close

Lets hope Rival Gaming steps in and takes care of the players who still have funds in the casinos.
