Muchos Poker Booted From Playtech's iPoker Network

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Internet poker affiliate Muchos Poker has reportedly been banned from using Playtech's iPoker Network for unknown reasons.

Although no specific reason has been given for Muchos Poker being given the boot, rampant speculation across the internet indicates that Playtech has launched a security investigation and that the row may be over player to player money transfers.

In addition to its Playtech issues, Muchos Poker has also reportedly been having player complaints stacking up against it, leaving the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority to help sort out the issues.

Internet based poker news site Poker Update has since published the iPoker Network's notice to its skins in which it lays out the information regarding the ban.

The notification reads:

“All Muchos poker activity is now officially banned on the Network. From this point on all card rooms are to stop accepting any new players from Muchos poker. All existing accounts are to be banned, if funds are present in accounts they are allowed to be withdrawn following normal checks relating to collusion, fraud or account verification.”

For its part, Muchos Poker appears to be working overtime to salvage the situation. A statement by the company claims that it will "...assist iPoker in their investigations to the best of our ability and try to find an acceptable solution with them, so we can get back to marketing and bringing in new players to the great game of poker.”

As one of the larger internet poker affiliates online, Muchos worked with several of the industry's leading brands including: William Hill, 888, Ongame, Winner Poker, dafabet Poker, and poker770. Several of those firms currently operate on the iPoker Network.

Speaking about the claims, a Muchos Poker Spokesperson said, “From our perspective, we believe we have done nothing untoward and followed all network rules and regulations and performed necessary KYC checks on all players and will continue to do so.”
