Chico Poker Network players, who had believed that they will never get back their poker funds, were pleasantly surprised when the online poker network announced at the beginning of this month that they could immediately withdraw their funds.
Players had believed that they would never get their funds because of a legal battle between Julian International Holdings, which had acquired the network, and Playsafe Holdings, which had sold the network. Players were of the opinion that the network would shut down and that the owner-operators are not in a position to refund them.
Prominent online poker news portals have as PokerScout.com, Gambling911.com, TwoPlusTwo.com, and PokerFuse.com have all reported that Chico Poker Network has kept its promise. The online poker network is indeed processing payout requests at breakneck speed, and this has been consistently happening since July 1.
Chico Poker Network comprises poker skins such as PokerInCanada.com, TigerGaming.com, GearPoker.com, ActionPoker.com, and PayNoRake.com. Besides, the network shares player pools with other online poker networks such as Hero Poker Network, which comprises skins such as SportsBetting.ag and BetOnline.ag.
Currently, Chico Poker Network is the fifth biggest US friendly online poker networks in the industry. In fact, it is close to wresting the top fourth position from Winning Poker Network.
Ever since the incidents of Black Friday, the day on which the feds cracked down on PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker and forced them out of the US online poker market, online poker players in the US have become paranoid about online poker sites shutting down and failing to refund them. They are therefore relieved that Chico Poker Network is processing withdrawals fast.
A prominent poker pro said: “It is great to see one online network doing the right thing.” Players on Chico Poker Network have also been expressing their appreciation of the online poker network on TwoPlusTwo Forums. User “Oanhtime” posted, “So happy, still can’t believe it!”and user “poker2” posted “I love new PNR.” PNR is the short form of PlayNoRake.com, one of the most popular skins on Chico Poker Network because it enables players to get their rakes back up to 100 percent.
The US online poker scenario is rapidly changing as state and federal lawmakers are trying to legalize and regulate online poker in a bid to boost revenue. At the beginning of July, Chico Poker Network promised that it would implement several software changes to “become a leader in the online poker space.”
