Chumba Casino and its real cash prizes has been a fixture on Facebook for years now. But as of August 20, 2019, the Chumba Facebook app will no longer be available, as the social casino will be moving completely off of the social media site in favor of its own proprietary site.
Why Is Chumba Casino Shutting Down Its Facebook App?
As of August 20, 2019 at 11:59 pm, the company will be ending its longstanding Facebook app known as Chumba Casino Play. For years, members could either use the integrated app within Facebook to play the many free casino games Chumba has to offer, or they could use Facebook to log in to the Chumba Casino website and play online slots, blackjack, and more.
After August 20, players will only be able to use their Facebook logins to enter the Chumba website off of Facebook. Asked why Chumba Casino Play is closing on Facebook, the site's FAQ states:
"As Chumba Casino evolves, so too does our strategy. We will bring even more fantastic and familiar content to Chumba Casino, while maintaining the same Chumba vibe, quality and feel.
This will give our players an even better experience by consolidating the player base and our focus on one standalone platform.
This consolidated platform will allow players to experience enhanced and even more exclusive games, such as the progressive slot machines, that our players have come to know and love on Chumba Casino."
Chumba Facebook Players Will Still Be Able To Access Chumba Site With Their Facebook Login
Just because Chumba Casino is moving away from Facebook doesn't mean they won't be using the popular social media site to both access its main website and to inform fans of their new games and promos. The Chumba Casino Fan Page will still exist for those who want to keep track of innovations of the site. That includes Chumba Casino news, updates, competitions, and chances to win free Sweeps Cash to use for real cash prizes. Facebook members can also use Chumba's customer service to contact them specifically regarding:
- Transferring your Gold Coin balance from your Facebook login to your new login
- Combining your Facebook Chumba account with your Chumba standalone account, if you have one
Please note that they will not be carrying over Sweeps Cash balances from the Facebook app over to their website, so it needs to be redeemed by the end of August 20. You can contact their help desk for further information about Sweeps Cash.
