Playboy Poker To Close On July 27th 2015

Playboy Poker To Close On July 27th 2015During the poker boom there was a proliferation of gimmick sites springing up and offering players a chance to win special promotions. One such brand was Playboy Poker, which between 2007 and 2009 offered online poker on the Cryptologic network whilst giving players a chance to win prizes like a top of the range Harley Davidson motorcycle, or a luxurious trip to the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills. The UIGEA subsequently forced the site to quit the unregulated market, only for it to return in 2013 ready to exploit a seeming gap in the market. As a Playboy Poker representative commented at the time:
“Poker has become pretty serious and stale recently and we think can bring a lot of fun to the game.. We are also working on fun promotions that are really going to make some noise. There are certain things that only Playboy can offer and we are really excited about the future.”
Nearly two years later, however, and Playboy Poker is ready to fold its hand once more with a site representative citing a “business decision” and announcing a closing date for Monday, July 27th. Now comes the process of players withdrawing any money they may still have from their gaming accounts, and as the Playboy Poker representative explains:
“All players can still log in and can play out any remaining money. Alternatively, they can choose to withdraw their funds. Currently, we can guarantee that withdrawals will be processed within 24 hours of their requests.”
Following the site’s closure next Monday, players failing to withdraw funds will then have to email their request to within a a 30 day cut-off point, after which any unclaimed money will be forfeited.
Celebrities which helped promote Playboy Poker over the years includes model and actress Sara Underwood, and poker player Dan Bilzerian, but not even the millionaire internet social sensation was able to rescue the Ongame network hosted site from ultimate closure.
