Online poker operator Winamax has announced that it is cutting its service to Italy where it is not licensed but has still gained a significant following.
Winamax made the announcement through an email to their players this week, which read:
"Because of the Italian legislation on gaming, we can not allow you to access our platform. The funds in your account have been paid into your bank account."
"We appreciate you have chosen us as a poker room, and our hope is that you have enjoyed playing on Winamax. If the laws of your country regarding online poker will change and will allow you to play on Winamax, we will be happy to again welcome you. We wish you good luck for the future."
