Juicy Stakes, a member of the Revolution Gaming Network, recently stopped accepting new players from Nevada.
Players in Nevada that attempt to create a new account at Juicy Stakes receive the following error message:
You are restricted from creating a real money account from this country. Please contact support for more information.
Juicy Stakes support confirmed this new policy. In addition, deposits are no longer accepted from existing Nevada players.
This move does not affect Lock Poker, the other US friendly Revolution Gaming skin. Players in Nevada may currently create a new account and deposit at Lock Poker.
Players in Kentucky, Utah and Washington have been restricted since US players were moved from Cake Poker to Juicy Stakes in 2012. Nevada now joins that list.
Juicy Stakes struggles with paying withdrawal requests in a timely manner. US players report cashout speeds of over six months. Players outside of the US frequently complain about withdrawal speeds to international ewallets, which reportedly take multiple months. Lock Poker has also been the subject of similar cashout complaints from players.
This move should not affect many Nevada players as online poker is already regulated and live in the state. Ultimate Poker is the only current option, but several other companies look to launch later in the year. Future Nevada operators include South Point Poker, Treasure Island and WSOP.com.
