We have recently been receiving numerous complaints from online poker players about Cake Poker delaying player payouts. The emails from Cake pretty much all say the same thing;
“Due to the current delays we are experiencing with cashouts, I’m afraid we cannot confirm a timeframe as we could not guarantee a timeframe and we do not wish to mislead you. We are hoping you won’t be waiting much longer and we will email you as soon as the funds have been sent”.
Some of the responses from Cake are saying that they’re “backed up” with payout requests. We are not talking about a few days or weeks here folks. We are talking about months going by without the players being paid. This is completely unacceptable. They certainly aren’t getting “backed up” with taking players deposits.
We urge caution at this time to new and existing players depositing at Cake. Chances are you will not be getting your money anytime soon.
There is good news though. If you enjoy playing on the Cake Poker Network you can still do so by playing at Intertops Poker Room. Intertops uses the Cake Poker Network but when cashing out players go through Intertops Processors and not Cakes. Intertops is where I personally play at and payouts have never been faster.
