Skrill has returned to online poker room Adjarabet, following its temporary removal in January due to integration issues.
Georgia-based Adjarabet was virtually unknown outside its home markets in Eastern Europe until it decided to expand and seek customers from further afield in late 2013.
It began to report its traffic numbers to PokerScout, and introduced deposit and withdrawal options suitable for the wider market—Skrill being one of the most important.
Poker Room boss Alastair Ives explained to pokerfuse that when they introduced Skrill they didn’t have their safeguards against fraud right—the subsequent problems led to the facility’s withdrawal.
Ives told pokerfuse that Adjarabet had accounts with most of the major payment processors, but was not going to add them to their system until they got their existing payment systems working.
There remain problems with local banks, which Ives explained was simply a lack of experience with multiple international transactions; Adjarabet hopes to have both Visa and Mastercard transaction options available presently.
The cash out problems which arose so soon after the company launched its campaign to get new players gave rise to immediate complaints on the forums. Now that an acceptable fix is in place, Adjarabet, which is currently 11th in the global cash game traffic rankings, may cautiously continue its campaign of international growth.
