Internet wagering software developer Playtech has announced that its iPoker Network has stopped allowing peer-to-peer monty transfers.
The suspension of the P2P transfers is considered to be temporary, with an anonymous iPoker Network spokesman saying service being halted temporarily due to security concerns.
While no official explanation being offered, rumors ran amok that the popular poker network was gearing up for a hotly anticipated upgrade, that the skin was trying to protect against money laundering, or that the firm is trying to cut down on poker sharks.
Playtech's peer-to-peer service allowed players on the same skin to transfer money amongst themselves, and was used as a way for experienced players to be staked into big games and tournaments by outside users.
