Online Poker Room Changes Confirmed (Update)
January 26, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Recently rumored changes in poker room networks for Doyle's Poker and Playboy Poker have now been confirmed by events this week.
Players at Doyle's Room — and especially delighted U.S. poker fans — report that the switch to Cake Poker is going smoothly. The former network for Doyle's, Microgaming, apparently still hosts older versions of the Doyle’s Room software, but those will drop off by the end of January.
Players are being advised to uninstall the old Doyle’s Room software and download the new Cake version, which will take them on to the Cake Poker Network. The move will hopefully be Doyle's last, as it has previously been hosted by Tribeca, then Playtech, then Microgaming and now Cake.
The move of Playboy Poker players to Cryptologic's Intercasino poker room has reportedly been less seamless, with players reporting difficulties with claiming their Playboy loyalty points through what seems to have been a code screw-up.
Presumably these players will ultimately find their way to the G-Tech Boss Media International Poker Network, to which Crypto is transferring its player liquidity in March.
