Equity Poker Network (EPN) opened its doors for real-money play late last week with a total of five skins on the network.
Skins are now promoting a 150% deposit bonus and a 10% “instant cashback” promo to entice new players. A $5000 freeroll ran on Sunday. At the time of writing there were eight real-money ring games going, from NL2 to NL100. Tables up to NL1000 and $5/10 limit are spread.
The software is the same as the Chico Poker Network, and EPN founder Clive Archer was previously the COO at the Action Poker Network, and the CEO of BetOnline.
Players on the Chico network have faced payment problems over the last two years due to extended legal disputes following its acquisition by Julian International Holdings. In August 2012, a legal resolution ultimately resulted in the repayment process to players commencing. Though still ongoing, players continue to report successful and relatively fast cashouts.
