Entraction Bans Canadian Players and Five other Countries

September 15, 2011

The consequences of Black Friday have been widely felt in the online poker community throughout the US and the rest of the world. Online poker sites have been forced to oust the US market from their player bases and many professional level online poker players who reside in the US have been forced to take up residency elsewhere in order to continue to make a living playing online poker. One country that has taken on a lot of online poker pros over the past five months is Canada. Unfortunately though, players from Canada, along with four other countries have been banned from the Entraction Poker Network.

Norway, Israel, Russia, and Turkey are also no longer welcomed at Entraction Poker sites to play online poker for real money after seeing what has happened to other US friendly online poker networks. Now VCPoker, Gold Win Poker, and Devilfish Poker, all on the Entraction Poker Network, will no longer accept US players. The five countries that have recently been banned have questionable or non-existing laws concerning online poker and online gambling payment transactions; therefore, it’s safe to say that Entraction just wants to remain clean in the hopes that efforts to legitimize online poker in the future will benefit them. By backing out now before any action is taken against them, they will later be able to re-enter the banned markets should adequate regulation laws be put into place.
