Genting Online Poker to Close!!

on 2016-03-10, 18:08
Just received this email - seems like the first nail in the coffin for the GPS Tour - watch it dwindle over the next couple of legs, followed by cancellation?

This represents a significant shift in Genting's business focus - from trying to buy up the poker market a few years ago, to now encouraging you to play their online casino games. OK, put me down for online slots and roulette - NOT!!  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Dear ,
We regret to inform you that, on 31st March 2016, Genting Poker Online will be closing down. Your gaming account will remain active for the use of Genting Casino and Sportsbook products.
The Gentingpoker.com client will still be accessible to withdraw any remaining funds until 31st March. After the closure of the poker client, you can continue to access your account and withdraw funds via Gentingcasino.com
Any tokens or reward points can be exchanged for cash. Please contact our customer services team to arrange this. You have until the expiry date of the token or reward points to redeem these.
The closure of our online poker room will have no impact on any live poker rooms. The live poker offering at all Genting Clubs and Casinos remains unchanged.
The ever-popular Genting Poker Series will also continue throughout the UK. Check the website for up to date information on this at https://www.gentingcasino.com/poker/genting-poker-series/. The closure of Online Poker will mean that Online Day 1A and online satellites will cease.
Additional information can be found in our closure FAQ’s here.
Kind regards,
The Genting Poker Team
