Battlefield Poker and 27 other Microgaming skins to close?

CLIFF NOTES (Updated 040308)

*

I'm unable to sit at any tables, anyone else having this problem????

I got onto live chat and got the following -

Please wait for a site operator to respond.
You are number 1 in the queue, and the estimated wait time is 0 mins 25 secs.


All operators are currently assisting others. Thanks for your patience. An operator will be with you shortly

You are now chatting with 'Support'


Your Issue ID for this chat is

Support: Hello, how may I help you today?

you: Hi, I can't sit at any tables

you: i get a messege - the system could not sit you down

Support: Support: Hello, how may I help you today?

Support: Visitor: Its me again. OH my I just read this...

Support: Visitor: ress statement just out from Microgaming this evening:QUOTE:Company Statement:'Microgaming announces that it has terminated its software licence with Tusk Investment Corporation - with immediate effect, after having received Tusk's notification of its plans to put the Company into liquidation.Microgaming is presently gathering all facts related to this matter and will provide further announcements as and when information becomes available.'About TuskTusk Investment Corporation Limited operates a number of casino sites and poker rooms:Casinos: http://www.casinoaction.com/onlinecasinos.aspxChallenge Casino, Golden Reef Casino, Music Hall Casino, Nostalgia Casino, UK Casino Club; Big CasinoPoker Rooms http://www.mypokerprofit.com/poker-network-brands.asp
Battlefield Poker, Royal Card Club, Red Nines, Arctic Poker, Raw Poker, Poker.ie, Daily Poker, Flush Draw Poker, Will Bet Poker, Bet Road Poker, Grand Central Poker, Off The Rail Poker, Privy Poker, Berserk Poker, Atomik Poker, Dave's Poker Room, Hetman Poker, Hot Pepper Poker, Poker Seas, TilttAA Poker, Loose Games Poker, CPT Gaming Poker, Ice Bear Poker, GoHard Poker, Caya Poker, Mr Urban Poker, Poker Sweden, Euro Poker DreamUNQUOTEFrom this it appears that the "non-compliance" issue had to do with the casino group failing to maintain the ratio of reserves to obligations.And it must be pretty serious if the casino group is contemplating going into liquidation.I'm sure we'll be hearing more from everyone involved in this over the coming days.

Support: Support: I'm afraid I don't know anything about that - I am just technical support.

Support: Visitor: its out at casinomeister.com

Support: Visitor: I just went to that site

Support: Visitor: OMG

Support: Visitor: and I like casinoaction

Support: Visitor: Damn

Support: Support: I understand, but what I'm telling you is that right now, you know more than I do. I cannot comment on this as I have no information about it at all.

Support: Visitor: im just letting u know

Support: Visitor: im not asking for a comment
Support: Visitor: but read it for what its worth

Support: Visitor: u maybe looking for a new job soon

I don't find it on MG's site or anywhere else yet, but I guess those on the press release list get an email first.

Re: Battlefield Poker

I got the below message when logging into Red Nines:

We are experiencing a site-wide technical issue which has affected our poker room, casino, player logins, and player ability to deposit.

We apologise for the inconvenience, as we cannot say for sure when it will be fixed, but we are aware of the glitch and are working hard to resolve it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.


I don't have any money there, so I couldn't test sitting at a table.

My Poker Profit was offering white-label skins. They had the contract with Microgaming and essentially offered sublicensed cardrooms to operators for a smaller fee than a full-fledged startup would cost.

Re: Battlefield Poker

The title of this thread is misleading. It ought to be changed to something like "28 Microgaming skins to shut."

Re: Battlefield Poker

I believe Microgaming has covered players' balances when things like this have happened with casinos running their software before.

Well, this gives me a little hope. I've submitted my withdrawal request so we'll see what happens.
