Everleaf pull out of US and French market after the US Homeland Security tell them to cease and desist!
The ELG (Everleaf Gaming Network) stopped accepting USA and French players from today due to a letter from the US Homeland Security warning that the Everleaf owners and Directors would have legal proceeding started against them.
The Everleaf Network owners discussed the threats by the US Homeland Security and were advised by their gaming licensing authority, Malta’s LGA, that Everleaf should pull out of the American and French market.
This is a massive blow to the Everleaf Gaming Network who had enjoyed the massive bonus of all the US players flocking to the Everleaf Gaming Network and all their sites after Black Friday and the subsequent Full Tilt Poker fiasco.
As seen by their Pokerscout figures the closure of the USA and France markets has destroyed its cash game players, although it may be the case that the Everleaf network deliberately shut out all players while they reconfigured their servers and the whole Everleaf Network to stop accepting US and French players.
Is this a sign of the times and will the other poker network still accepting American players be next in the line of fire of the US Homeland Security? Merge poker network would look to be the next sniper victims as they reopened their US market confident in the knowledge and telling everyone that their was no issue and they would not be in trouble with the US Homeland Security. We shall all have to wait and see.
