BetBright has closed its operations in the UK by selling its entire technology stack and assets to 888 Holdings for €15 million. The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) approved the move and termed it as the right step as there was a strong chance of going into insolvent liquidation if the company remained operational.

BetBright will refund all pending payments and winnings in 30 days’ time.

The gambling commission confirmed that it had been overseeing the company and that there was a “very real possibility of going into insolvent liquidation if it remained open,” resulting in customers receiving no winnings and no refunds on stakes which had been placed.

“This was a significant risk for BetBright’s customers and therefore we are content that the return of stakes, as part of an orderly closure of the business, is the best option available for the vast majority of customers in what is an unusual and difficult situation,” explained the UKGC.
