Malta licensed online poker room Bluff Gaming has announced that it is shutting its doors and will be transferring its players to the Enet Poker Network's own poker room.
Bluff Gaming, which operates on the Enet Poker Network announced the move after weeks of slow payments and less than stellar communication with players. The Malta Gaming Authority has also apparently pulled the e-Gaming license of Bluff Gaming parent company IG and Partners.
Players on the twoplustwo poker forum posted a communication from Enet which read:
"Regrettably we have to inform you that due to liquidity issues Bluff Gaming.com website will be terminating operations as from the 31st of August 2012.
In order to minimize the loss of players funds an agreement has been reached with Enet Poker and it has been finalized.
"Enet Poker will take control of your funds under the following conditions:
All players funds will be transferred to an Enet skin as from the 1st of September 2012
All players will be able to cashout 100% of the rake they generate each month until the full amount transferred from BluffGaming is cleared
If players lose funds before they have managed to cashout the amount transferred, then they will be able to deposit and still get a 100% rake cashout until the transferred funds is reached in full
Once the full amount is cashed out players will go back to their original agreement with their affiliates.
All players will have to cancel their cashouts ( if any) and transfer all their funds on to the main BluffGaming wallet
Please be aware that we have found a lot of players chip dumping during the past months due to the cash out problems and this has resulted in a lot of players losing their funds.
If anyone will be found chip dumping, the accounts will be blocked and all funds will be lost as per standard Enet Poker network rules."
IG And Partners other poker room BluffRoom is part of the Merge Poker Network and it is currently unknown whether or not the site will remain in operation.
