Are The Feds Behind Online Poker Payment Delays?


No official confirmation, but it could be one explanation for delays

Pokerheads on major online poker message boards like 2+2 are currently speculating on what is perceived to be slower US payouts from major online poker websites PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and the Cereus network . Players have been reporting slower payments and requests that they hold off on cashing Instant eChecks, an option which has apparently since disappeared from the sites.

Much of the speculation is centred on an unsourced report on the gambling portal 911 which claims that the US Attorney's office in New York is "....behind the recent issues related to Instant eChecks being cut off and checks bouncing from major online poker websites. This is a federal matter, not a state investigation as previously reported."

The United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York is notorious for its aggressive pursuit of 'illegal' gambling operations, especially those involving online sportsbetting in terms of the Wire Act, where it has been especially active.

Going into the weekend, there had been no official comment from enforcement officials, the poker sites concerned or even the Poker Players Alliance, and it remains unclear whether the Instant eCheck issue is the result of enforcement activity or some other cause.
