    Default Microgaming in poker skin scandal

    According to AintLuck.com, players are owed over $5.3 million after putting money into a poker skin named ‘Mr Urban Poker’ or ‘Privy Poker.’

    To summarize this long-winded, scandalous affair, several poker skins, who dealt with the company Tusk for their licensing and finances, and Microgaming as the operator of the Poker Network, have gone bust, and are unable to process payouts.

    Apparently, the blame lies with the company responsible for player account financing, Tusk, who have plunged into liquidation. It is estimated creditors only have $1.3 million available to refund players. Because they are not directly responsible, MicroGaming are refusing to process refunds. One Unibet representative deemed the constant undercutting in bonus deals and rakeback from the skins involved, along with affiliate player stealing, as the primary reason for faltering finances.

    So if you had a bankroll on ‘Privy Poker’, it’s highly likely it got flushed away.

    bonus deals and rakeback from the skins involved, along with affiliate player stealing
    It was only a matter of time.

    I had actually gotten involved momentarily with Privy, but I held back putting much effort into them and now I am glad I did.
