Cake Poker Migrating US Players to Juicy Stakes

Cake Poker will reportedly

All US players at Cake Poker will reportedly migrate to fellow Revolution Gaming Juicy Stakes Poker on September 27th, 2012.

news was first reported by Calvin Ayre, cited at announcement. Cake that we weren’t able to track down at the time of this article.Cake support provided the following reply to our request for comment : Cake have reported receiving this email from the room.

A bit of background on / answers regarding the migration.To the best of my knowledge.Cake and Juicy Stakes were owned by the same operator when Juicy Stakes was launched.

Launched of Juicy Stakes

The launch of Juicy Stakes predated the partial purchase of Cake by PokerListings. so it’s anyone’s guess as to who owns what now.Juicy Stakes is on the same network as Cake Poker.so the migration should be relatively smooth.Juicy Stakes also uses the same cashier as Cake.

so you shouldn’t expect any difference in processing times.Cake will reportedly not be accepting new US players after the migration of existing US players to Juicy Stakes.There’s no word on whether or not Lock Poker’s going to follow suit and transition US players to Juicy Stakes.

It’s unclear if players with rakeback deals will receive their same deal post-transition. CalvinAyre.com reports that player balances, gold chips, and loyalty levels will be move but doesn’t mention rakeback.

Assuming the report is true, why would Cake shift US action to another Revolution skin. If Lock follows Cake’s path and migrates US players.

then one could easily speculate that the Revolution network is segmenting their US traffic for possible sale or jettisoning. If not, then a few other potential explanations emerge. Cake could be being prepped for sale, or Cake might be facing pressure to grey parts of their player base.

but we do know one thing highly unlikely Cake and Revolution.would adopt such a disruptive change for no reason.
