- Poker Affiliate Solutions has assigned Juicy Stakes an “F” grade for payment processing.
- The last time an F was awarded was when it became clear that Everleaf could not pay its players.
- Cash out times are tracking between seven to eight months.
The Payment processing assessment for Juicy Stakes, a US-facing skin on the Revolution network, has been reduced to an “F”, a grade normally reserved for sites in default.
On his regular US payment processing report at Poker Affiliate Solutions, PokerAddict has taken the unusual step of downgrading Juicy Stakes from a D- to an F. The last time he awarded an F was to Everleaf when it became clear that US players would not be paid.
“This grade might be the hardest decision I have made in the two years of publishing this report. I have always stated that as long as a US facing online poker room was making an attempt to pay players that I would never go below a D-.”
PokerAddict quotes cash out times of seven to eight months and one player waited 7.5 months to receive his check only to have it refused by the bank.
Bodog/Bovada tops the list, closely followed by Winner Poker Network(WPN) and Intertops, who all receive A grades. Bodog cash out times are from a few days to two weeks, depending on the method used.
LockPoker maintains a D grade, slightly up on its D- in May. Cashout times for US players are assessed as two to three months for Western Union and four to six months for checks. EU players fare little better with a 45 day average wait: “Lock Poker will be graded low at least until European players are getting paid on time.”
