HACKERS IN BITCOIN POKER SITES SCAM
2014-02-05

In what seems to be a rather clumsy scam using a gmail address, attempts were made this week to con Merge Poker Network players on the PokerHost skin into sending Bitcoins in order to fund their accounts, with a sweetener of a 25 percent discount.
The poker information site Pokerfuse reports that the fraudsters behind the scam appeared to have hacked into the website, because the spelling-challenged player message was delivered using the softwares internal messaging system, and urged players to contact a gmail address for further information.
Pokerfuse points out that the Merge Network does not offer transactions in Bitcoin.
Merge reacted to the scam by issuing an advisory noting that it does not manage cashier or processing services to licensees.
"No Merge licensee offers Bitcoin. These table messages were unauthorized and Merge has the isolated incident fully contained, the network said.




BRAND CHANGE FOR CAKE POKER
2013-08-06

The keen-eyed spotters at online Apuestas Deportivas Golf Betting March Madness Contest poker information site 4Flush have picked up a brand-change at Cake Poker, where poker players will now find themselves re-routed to a new and rather ordinary and uninspiring website at WinCake.com.
The switch coincides with a download software upgrade, but little else has changed, and there has been no apparent shift in ownership from Cake Entertainment N.V., 4Flush reports.
The site carries the Curacao licensing emblem, and reveals that Cake Poker has been "remodelled" and relaunched as WinCake.com with a range of poker and casino games.
Interestingly, the notification also advises that sports and live betting is part of the owner's future plans.
The change does not affect the US-friendly sister brand Juicy Stakes, reports 4Flush.
