The Equity Poker NetworkThe Equity Poker Network (EPN) has announced its decision to withdraw from Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey, following in the footsteps of Full Flush Poker, one of its largest skins.

A few days back, Full Flush Poker published a statement on its website, informing its customers in particular and poker players in general that it will withdraw from Delaware, New Jersey, and Nevada, three US states that have legalized and regulated online poker.

According to the statement, FullFlushPoker.com (FFP), a “flagship online poker room of the Equity Poker Network (EPN),” will withdraw from regulated US markets with immediate effect. Accordingly, the online poker room withdrew all real money online poker gaming options for residents of Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey.

Revealing FFP’s policies, the statement said that the online poker room gives top priority to customer issues and fair play for everybody. Owing to these principles, the online poker room, which focuses on recreational poker gaming, decided to stop offering its real money poker services to residents of the above-mentioned three US states as those states have regulated online poker.

FFP announced that it would withdraw from regulated US markets immediately and would send emails to all residents of Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey, informing them about the changes in their policy and confirming that their online poker accounts will be removed. Existing players, who reside in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware, will be given enough time to withdraw their poker funds.

A spokesperson for Full Flush Poker said that the online poker room took this decision to make sure that most of its customers, who are non-residents of the above-mentioned three states, can continue enjoying its real money poker services “without disruption or inconveniences.”

Assuring players that FFP will continue to focus on player issues, the spokesperson said that FFP will continue to provide its loyal players from all over the world “a fun and entertaining poker environment that they can trust.”

Recently, EPN followed in the footsteps of FFP and released a press release that made the same statements that the FFP had already made. EPN and its skins will continue operating in other parts of the US. Reportedly, the sites have decided to withdraw from regulated US markets because of a letter recently sent to them by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE), warning them that they are violating the state’s gambling laws by continuing to operate in the state.
