    Minted Poker

    We have just received an email from Minted Poker regarding the Everleaf Network’s decision to restrict US players from playing on its network

    We will be sending out a newsletter later listing the choices that Minted US players and others still have for playing but first we wanted to bring you up to speed and give you the little information we do have



    And we will be contacting you directly with another email which should definitely read as we are trying to secure our existing Minted players extra offers for the months of Feb and March only



    This is a summary of the information we have received:



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    At the end of the business day last night ELG (Everleaf Gaming Network) informed Minted Poker that they were no longer going to accept play from the USA and France

    The decision had been made after a series of events that cumulated in a letter from US homeland security warning them to cease and desist poker operations in the US or the directors and owners of the network would be subject to legal proceedings.

    The Directors of the network and their legal counsel then met with the Maltese Licensing Authority the LGA and asked advice under their license agreement.

    The LGA advised that the network should pull out of the US and French markets completely and as quickly as possible, they are also going to aid in discussions in how player funds held in ring fenced accounts are cashed out back to the players effected.



    Minted Players are been assured that all monies held (in the US and the rest of the world) are secure and ring-fenced. The Maltese Licensing Authority is reportedly going to aid in discussions about how funds can be cashed out to those online poker players affected. The European network will continue to run, but all existing accounts will be converted to Euro accounts, and obviously all US-based players will no longer play at the tables at Minted Poker or any other Everleaf Gaming partnered online poker site.


    There will be a series of announcements from the network starting tomorrow regarding the situation and the process Minted will keep all informed as they receive information to make the process as painless as possible for those affected

    Well I believe Merge has already gotten past this stage since they were "banned for US players" for about 3 months or so not allowing any more new registrants and then recently re opened back up a few weeks ago so

    I was playing on luvin. Left 40 on there, but right before the cashier locked up I transferred the $40 to a Canadian friend, and I'll get it later. Pretty lucky, left 0.00 in my account!

    You will be pretty luck if your friend can pull the money and pay you. Let us know how it works out ...
