The top Bitcoin-only site in the online poker industry, SealsWithClubs, has been off-line since the middle of last week.
According to the poker room’s Twitter account, a “hardware failure” on February 11 was the reason behind the TKO. SWC was up and running again on the same day for a brief period, but again went down for the count and has yet to come back online as of this writing.
Players needn’t worry about their account balances. The following message at the website let those loyal players know that access to their Bitcoin is just a few clicks and less than 24 hours away:
“While we are down, you can enter withdrawal requests using the form below. It will enter a cashout for the entirety of your balance and will be processed while we work on bringing everything back up.”
Before the latest snafu, SWC was averaging 85 cash players, according to PokerScout. The traffic-tracking website has since removed SealWithClubs from its rankings due to the length of time that the site has been down.
