WPN Withdraws From Regulated U.S. Market

The Winning Poker Network (WPN) has announced that players located in states in which online poker has been regulated will no longer be permitted to log on and play at the network.

The WPN flagship skin, Americas Cardroom, issued a press release to that effect, indicating that the new policy takes effect immediately.

Our goal at Americas Cardroom is to build a poker community where players come first,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “But we also strive to play fairly. As a result, our network has decided to stop serving players in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware due to the availability of a regulated poker market in those states.”

Players residing in the trio of legalized states who play at any of the network skins that include True Poker and Black Chip Poker are advised to close out any remaining balances. Ample time will be given to do so, but players are encouraged not to delay.

WPN is currently third in cash player traffic among U.S.-facing poker rooms and networks. PokerScout lists the network’s seven-day average of ring game traffic at 350 players, less than 1/4 that of industry leader Bovada at 1,500.
