Full Flush Poker Continues to Struggle
Full Flush Poker, the flagship of the Equity Poker Network, is still dealing with a backlog in cashout requests. Some players report waiting nearly a year for checks, Neteller and Skrill cashouts. The only method of withdrawals seeing any movement is MoneyGram. Those are processed in one to two months. The maximum amount is $360 before fees.
Traffic at Equity Poker has collapsed. It averages just 55 cash game players, according to PokerScout. Equity Poker has been on a steady decline for the past two years. The network once attracted action due to its loose games. Skins started banning winners and the decline started nearly immediately as its reputation was damaged.
We continue to recommend avoiding Full Flush Poker. Our suggestion for the Equity Poker Network is Heritage Sports.
Ongame Network to Close
The Ongame Network will close on or about October 15, according to Pokerfuse Pro. The news was revealed through RedKings, one of the more popular skins on the network. The network was acquired by NYX Gaming in 2014 after Amaya Gaming took over PokerStars.
Ongame has struggled due to the declining poker market and how it addressed the situation. Ongame Essence was introduced as a way to give weaker players more perks. This hurt game traffic and the platform declined further, losing more skins. Some skins have announced that they are moving to the Microgaming Poker Network.
