December 2019 Changes

As our regular players may have noticed, Winneroo is now showing all cash prizes in US dollars instead of British Pounds. The reason for this change is that since Winneroo launched in the UK in 2012 it has attracted players from all over the world to the point it is now enjoyed almost everywhere around the globe.

While our hearts are still with our regular UK players - some of you have been with us for over 7 years now! - we wanted to make the prize amounts easy to understand for our global players too.

What does this mean to our UK players? Well, you can continue playing our games just like before but all winnings are paid in US dollars, and when you request a withdrawal, the amount transferred to your PayPal account will be converted to British Pounds.

The current conversion rate at the time of writing this article is 78 pence to a dollar so unfortunately the winnings that reach your account will be little bit lower than before.

Another change is that we have stopped adding new competitions (sweepstakes) to the website. This is for the following reasons:

  1. Our free games have become much more popular than competitions.
  2. Only some brands are well known and available globally.
  3. Some countries have restrictions on free competitions.

We appreciate UK players may find some of these changes inconvenient but we hope that making Winneroo more accessible globally will help us increase the amount of prizes we can offer benefiting our UK players too.

This is the process we followed:

  1. On Saturday 30th November we temporarily disabled new withdrawals and processed any pending withdrawals.
  2. On Sunday 1st December, once we had credited November's monthly prices in British Pounds, we then converted all customer balances to US dollars using the current exchange rate.
  3. We then updated the website to display all prizes in US dollars and made withdrawals available again.

This process ensured that all prizes paid out before December 2019 were awarded exactly as advertised.

We're grateful for your continued support and look forward to many more years of Winneroo!
