Many UK Bingo players will be getting emailed regarding a name change. One of the perks of regulation is that everyone must be informed when a bingo company name changes. In this instance, it seems that the takeover of the Dragonfish Bingo platform is taking place.
New Bingo Company Details
So far, we have seen several bingo sites sending an email advising that on 31 May 2022, they would cease operating as 888 UK. From that period on, players must agree to be entertained by Grand Battery Holdings Limited.
The usual regulatory wording is in place too. We have pasted it below. Essentially it is to get permission to maintain contact with players. Without that permission, the new company taking over the UK Bingo business cannot contact players. The email is important because if you do not want your details or funds transferred, you must respond to ask for account closure.
We are letting you know that on 31st May 2022, Bingorella will cease to be operated by 888 UK Limited and will instead be operated by Grand Battery Holdings Limited. Grand Battery Holdings Limited is licensed and regulated in Great Britain by the Gambling Commission under licence number 058267-R-334552-003.
Your funds will be held by GBHL in a bank account which meets the Great Britain Gambling Commission’s requirements at the medium protection level.
