FullFlushPoker.com and the Equity Poker Network have withdrawn the full suite of online real-money gaming options for players residing in the regulated US States of New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware.
FFP operates with its players foremost in mind, and fair play for all customers is paramount. With these principles in mind, the recreational online poker site has decided to stop serving players who reside in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware due to the availability of a regulated poker market in those states.
This decision takes effect today with players in these regulated US markets set to receive email notification of the change in policy, and confirmation that their account will be closed. Players with existing FFP accounts who reside in these three states will have access to them to close out their balances. FFP will work quickly to return player funds to those affected.
“We have taken this action in order to ensure that the vast majority of our customers, who do not reside in New Jersey, Nevada, or Delaware, continue to have access to our site and to enjoy playing the game that they love without disruption or inconvenience,” said a Full Flush Poker Spokesperson.
“Our priority still remains our players, and we’re proud to provide our loyal customers from around the globe with a fun and entertaining poker environment that they can trust, and that operates with the highest values of fairness, integrity and security.”
All EPN Operators have received notice of a change in the Networks Central Administration Rules, which states that they shall not allow any players who reside in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware to access the EPN to play real-money games, or to register new accounts.
EPN’s strong stance means that customers who fall into this category across the Network will not be eligible to access the EPN software at any of their other Operators on the Network.
“Our players are our number one priority, but playing fair is also central to our ethos. We believe this decision is in the best interests of the Network and its Operators to add and adhere to this Rule, given the availability of regulated poker in these US states,” said an EPN Spokesperson. “We take great pride in delivering our recreational poker community with reliable access to our EPN poker rooms. Our goal is to ensure that they continue to enjoy a fun and safe time at EPN’s tables with every confidence and trust.”
