The latest online poker operator to bar new US player signups is Power Poker, a Malta-licensed and EU-based operation on the Cake network which was founded in 2009. This week the site displayed a notice advising: "Due to recent movements by the U.S. government concerning online poker, PowerPoker is no longer accepting new U.S. players.
"Following the April 15 “Black Friday” shut-down of major online poker sites, PowerPoker Management have decided to pull out of the U.S. market fully and indefinitely.
"Any existing U.S. accounts will remain accessible as normal."
PowerPoker was fonded in February 2009 by an alliance of poker players and marketing experts, and is a sister site to PowerVegas and PowerPartners.
The company offers Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo, with action ranging from micro stakes to high stakes.
