Stratosphere casino to shut down free-play online gaming site

Back in June, it was announced that American Casino & Entertainment Properties LLC, owner of the Las Vegas casino the Stratosphere, would be acquired by Golden Entertainment, Inc., a Nevada based company. The acquisition is set to take place this week and now the Stratosphere has decided to close their online platform for free-play poker and casino gaming site due to the company change.

According to a blog of the online gaming site, AcePlay, the Stratosphere’s online gaming site is shutting down. The parent company of the site had a license to offer real-money poker game play online but never took advantage of it. It was late last week that the closure was officially announced, set to take place in November.

AcePlay took to their blog to announce the closure, stating that the closure was due to the parent company being sold and that it will not be in operation as that is not part of the new company’s immediate plans.

When visiting the online gaming site, players will find a notice of closing on the home page. After clicking on the sign, players are redirected to the blog post about the closure. The site will be no more by November 22nd, with AcePlay stating they ‘sincerely appreciated’ their loyal players that have used the site over the past two years and thanked them for their support.

Virtual coins will remain available at the site until the closing date. Players are not able to transfer any coins as they have no real-world value. Players who made a purchase on the website and have an acePLAY Rewards card that is linked to the site will see comp points remain on the account. Comps will be loaded on to a player account until November 21st at midnight. After midnight, the system will be shut down and rewards will no longer be loaded.

Players who have comps on their reward card can still use them at the four associated properties, including the Stratosphere. Any questions can be directed to the online gaming site customer service reps.
