    PokerOwned - Not Great News

    Effective immediately we are taking down all US facing Poker Rooms, Redemption's and so on. I think you have all seen the news recently that each network is opting out of different states. I think you will find that a dominoe effect will sooner or later occur where eventually all the current US facing rooms that are not licensed be slowly pushed out for the legal ones that will start popping up.

    What does this mean for the future of PokerOwned?

    We want to be 100% legal. I have always stayed away from sports betting, from PayPal, from Greendot Money Paks. In the near future we will be adding the Euro rooms that do not cater to US traffic.

    We will continue to operate as a "GPT" or Get Paid To site, meaning you can still come here, earn points and redeem them for various gift cards.


    Is the sky falling for US poker players?

    I do not know, I can't answer that. I just know that if we want to remain legal in the future when poker is regulated, we need to stop promoting the rooms that are currently deemed "illegal". That's 100% what it boils down to.

    This is totally bogus, The US gov really needs to go all in or stay out. Period. My American friends are getting the shaft and I feel bad for them

    That said, this totally supports what I have been saying about the skins ratcheting up the RAKE to try and get what they can before they get bumped out completely. They have been seeing the writing on the wall for months now and many have noticed the difference in game.

    I'm telling you folks..... if you have money in rooms that you don't want to lose, get it out now.
    TON is GONE. Blame the Mods. They stopped caring, or at least that's how it looks and feels.

    It never has been safe, and wont be safe until there is FEDERAL regulation. State by state bullshit is not good enough.

    You should clone the site and put it on a domain "DefinitelyNotPokerOwned.com". No one would figure it out for YEARS.

    To answer the PMs, long story short is.. If a business wants to offer legal poker inside the US where it's being regulated (NV & NJ for example), then it needs to cease doing business with rooms that are deemed illegal.

    All the current ones will go.

    Full Tilt, Party Poker, PokerStars, some other Euro ones will be coming in down the road..

    Then the states that ARE regulated will be added
