Confirmed: ePassporte Shuts Down to U.S. Online Poker Players.
ePassporte, the most popular deposit method among U.S. online poker players today, is shutting its doors to the United States gambling population. The news was first announced by a popular poster over at the 2+2 Forums, and although his source was unconfirmed at the time, a statement released by Cake Poker would indeed reveal that ePassporte was closing up shop to the U.S. poker industry.
A spokesperson for the gaming e-wallet giant has not come forward as of yet with any type of press release or statement regarding the U.S. shutdown, however, it should be expected over the next couple of days.
This is tough news for a reeling American poker community that has already seen a rapidly dwindling number of ways to deposit onto online poker player sites.
