Online Poker Site Partouche.fr Shuts Shop

Online Poker Site Partouche.fr Shuts ShopOnline poker site Partouche.fr has announced it will shut shop next month, with its existing customers then being transferred over to MyPok.fr. In the meantime, Partouche.fr is expected to keep running until Monday, 17th June, although Monday 1st June is when the Partouche Loyalty Program will come to an end and any unclaimed tournament tickets, bonuses, or privileges will be automatically lost.
Patrick Partouche decided to break the news via his Facebook page, although plans for the migration were already in place after the Partouche Poker home page, stated; “The migration to MyPok was approved by ARJEL on May 15th.”
The Partouche online poker room has seen its traffic plummet of late, with unstable software, as well as bad publicity adding to the sites woes. Partouche online poker has been under investigation by ARJEL, the French regulator of online poker, ever since allegations were made indicating Groupe Partouche family members and a number of top-ranking employees had received free tournament entries and Frequent Player Points at Partouche.fr. One such instance apparently involved Partouche Board Member Katy Zenou, who had originally deposited just €175 into his online account but subsequently received over €36,000 in tournament credits, €27,500 of which he then withdrew into his bank account.
Patrick ‘I´m no cheat’ Partouche, was given his nickname after a public display of petulance in which the tilting CEO dramatically pulled the plug on the Partouche Poker Tour, following a dispute in which he apparently reneged on the guaranteed €5 million prize pool. Nevertheless, despite the recent ARJEL investigation into the Partouche online poker site, Patrick Partouche has denied any wrongdoing and decided, instead, to apportion the blame elsewhere, stating on his Facebook account:
“I just watched Special Investigation! To all my “friends” poker players for once it is not in Partouche we cheat! I see nothing on the forums etc..You are less “dynamic” for Wina, Pokerstars and barrier! No hard feelings, I love you anyway.”
