Maestro Poker Kicked Off iPoker Because of Rakeback

ONLINE POKER SITE EXPELLED FROM iPOKER NETWORK

Rakeback violations cited for exclusion move

When online poker provider Playtech recently warned its iPoker network sites against rakeback deals (see previous InfoPowa report) it meant business, it appears. This week the network announced the removal of Maestro Poker "....due to rakeback violations, which are against the iPoker network policy."

Tain and iPoker, which now claim to be the largest European based poker network, said that the Maestro Poker skin was offering rakeback deals to affiliates and players in violation of the iPoker Network policy, and as a result a decision was made to remove the site from the iPoker Network.

"iPoker is making major efforts to fight rakeback on all its forms," said a company spokesman. "The actions iPoker has recently taken in order to stop rakeback include multiple fines against violating card rooms as well as this recent termination of Maestro Poker. As a result of the many rakeback cases found in recent months, iPoker now has a "zero tolerance" towards rakeback and rooms violating the network policy may face significant fines as well as termination from the iPoker Network."

The iPoker Network includes some of the most popular card rooms in Europe, such as Titan Poker, Bet365, Expekt, Paddy Power and others. According to www.pokersitescout.com iPoker currently averages over 4 300 real cash table players with daily peaks of well over 8 000 concurrent real cash table players, and is growing faster than any of the other leading card rooms.

I'm not sure. I know on Tain they allowed rakeback but I don't know what has happened since they went to iPoker. This is the first I've heard of it. I've been a bit out of the loop on non US rooms.

I have an existing iP RB account through a reputable Rakeback Network site - should I have anything to worry about going forward? (Sorry, I never have a clue how any of this stuff works).

This is not aimed at old grandfathered in rb deals, this has to do with rooms that continue to allow it for new players. There have been a few times in the past where iPoker allowed it and players that already had deals ae OK.

Chomp,

Former deals are not affected by the new T/C, shouldn't be worried about anything.

Overall the poker site should still be refunding player accounts, so there shouldn't be any economic problems with the site being kicked off the respective network.

Best Regards

How does this affect cashback deals/VIP programs?
