Although I am not personally affected by this, I am currently aware of dozens of Walker Poker users whose cash outs are not being processed, or the money is vanishing into thin air.

Users have made withdrawal in early September, and have yet to see them processed, or the cashier states they were processed, but the money was never sent to the ewallet.

Emails are ignored and live chat simply passes the buck to finance who refuses to reply to anyone's emails.

This is very roguish behavior and I STRONGLY encourage all poker players to avoid Walker Poker until further notice.

I will update this thread as more information becomes available.

Try getting players who ARE affected to join here, and PAB. This kind of thing is VERY worrying. When you have BOTH non-payment, AND a refusal to communicate, it is an indication of cashflow problems. Finance are going to ignore emails, rather than offer the excuse of "we don't have the money yet".
It's now the end of October, and withdrawals from September to eWallets should NEVER be suffering this kind of delay UNLESS there were serious issues.

Non-communication can also mean that staff have not themselves been paid on time, and are no longer prepared to continue working for free.

A PAB goes near to the top, and they either start communicating with plausible reasons for the delay, or end up in the pit. They cannot go to the pit without an investigation, and this requires affected players to submit PABs.

Seems to be on Merge network, dont know who handles the banking. The network or the individual site?

They bought the assets of WingowsPoker (dirty story). Or is it the same people running the show?

It's individual.

Reefer and Carbon Pokers are having no issue with cash outs.
They pay same day, usually within a few hours.

Walker, on the other hand, is paying out nothing. :eek:

Bad news.

Saw that Merge also has BigDaddysCasino (IGS/Futurebet linked) and GoldenArchPoker, who wants to play at those sites when Merge actually have some quality rooms? Edit: forgot Oddsmaker (IGS/Futurebet)

Merge network does have some quality rooms, but it is unfortunate they also have a number of rooms of dubious quality.

Don't go by the software to decide if a poker room is good or not.

Walker Poker is owned by the same people that stole tens of thousands of dollars at Wingows Poker. You will find a wide range of people have rogued/blacklisted Wingows Poker. They were a part of Jungle Poker's network and got screwed by Futurebet's involvemnt in Dobrosoft. Even if this group pays you it is still supporting people who have screwed players.

i also used to be an affiliate at WalkerPoker and guided quite a few players to them, but soon complaints fill my mailbox and so i tried to contact Walker to see if we could solve the problem. After 3 weeks and dozens of emails that never got 1 single reply i have up and blacklisted them.

A few months later they was at it again! Here goes:

a while back we allready warned you for WalkerPoker as they non stop mislead and cheat players!

Once again they send an general spam email promoting the most incredible bonus!

Here Goes;

We Double Your Bankroll - 200% up to $1,000!
To claim your bonus, Please follow these 6 easy steps:



1. Login to your account. Your username is: xxxxxxxx

2. Go to Cashier --> Deposit.

3. Choose your preferred depositing method.

4. Enter the bonus code: DBL.

5. Make your deposit.

6. The bonus will be placed in your account instantly. Have fun!

So they promise a huge instant bonus again!

We tested this and Deposited the minimum amount $50 so we expected a nice instant bonus, but all we got was $0.00

After a few emails with no response ( Walker never answers difficult Emails, they think by ignoring them the problem solves itself ) we investigated further.

Because whan we used this bonus code we cant even withdrawl our $50 untill we reach 200.000VIP ( the going rate was 10VIP per $1 rake )


WalkerPoker is one of those rooms that can be listed as SCAM.

I can confirm that I'm having problems to cashout on Walker Poker too.

I had $41.30 on my account (all won on freerolls), and since the minimum withdraw by moneybookers is $50, I had to deposit $10 (minimum)

Strangely the $10 deposit by moneybookers didn't arrive, dispite my moneybookers account been already debited.

So I contacted live chat, that told me that there were a problem with my postal code, and send a screenshot of my moneybookers transaction, so they could retrieve the money, they also told me not to worry that my $10 weren'r lost.

After sending the screenshot, the $10 were credited to my Walker Poker account, making a total of $51.30

On May 17th, I requested a cashout but only a integer number was allowed, so I could only request a $51 withdrawal (1st sign of fraud)

30 cents remained.

Received an email stating that the $51 would be processed within 72h max

Today is May 24th and the status of my withdrawal is still "Pending Approval"

I contated live chat, and mister Mike Brown told me that they were having delays with moneybookers payments, but it should be processed within this week.

After that I emailed the support who promptly responded this:
"...Please be advised that there's no problem whatsoever with your withdraw request. We are currently experiencing a bit of a delay on all cashout requests due to an upgrade that’s being implemented in our system; this order to offer you all a better service.

Your funds should reflect in your balance within a week after been requested. We apologize for this inconvenience..."

Guess I'm kissing these $51 good bye, no?

Hi chuchu, sorry for the late response, but I had auto notification disabled (it's turned on now).

Not playing much frerolls at the time... I've found a much more lucrative occupation.

As for Walker Poker, I've emailed them again saying that over a week has passed so plenty of time to finish that "system upgrade" they told me, and asked for a precise date and time of my withdrawal beeing processed.

They responded that the system upgrade is taking longer that they would expected, and it's out of their hands, but the money will be in my account in the next 4-5 days...

Let's see...
