Enet Halts Deal With Former Bluff Gaming Players
Enet Poker Network has temporarily blocked the accounts of players who transferred about a month ago from the now-defunct Bluff Gaming.
“There was [...] an agreement with the old company when we took over all Bluff Gaming players and that agreement has not been fulfilled from their side,” Enet support wrote in an email delivered to players Wednesday. “So until all things are clear, we are forced to keep your account blocked. ... We are working 24/7 to solve this issue so we can move on, but for now we will ask you to be patient please.”
The message states that accounts would be blocked until November 1, but does not indicate the significance of that date. Until that time, players are unable to play on the site or withdraw their cleared balances.
Bluff Gaming folded on August 31, and Enet picked up the action, with the agreement that players could be paid if they raked an amount equal to their account balance.
After lengthy cashout delays, executives at Bluff Gaming, unrelated to the US poker publication of similar name, blamed the closure on “liquidity issues.”
A source close to the deal between Bluff and Enet told pokerfuse that Bluff’s parent company, IG & Partners Ltd., failed to make a payment to Enet.
IG & Partners Ltd held a license under the Maltese LGA, which reportedly requires licensees to hold all player funds in segregated accounts.
