Doyle's Room leaves Microgaming for Cake Poker

22 January 2009

While there has been no official announcement, it appears that Doyle's Room has indeed made the move from Microgaming to the Cake Poker Network.

The popular online poker room endorsed by the legendary Doyle Brunson sent out an e-mail to its clients last week announcing that "sweeping changes were on the way." On Thursday, the poker room, which was previously powered by Microgaming, had a disclaimer on the bottom of its home page that said "Cake Poker Network Partner." The disclaimer at the bottom of the home page at Doyle's Casino stills says it is "powered by Microgaming."

It appears that the move by Doyle's Room is in response to the decision Microgaming made in November to begin denying U.S. players as a result of the ongoing Kentucky domain case seizure. Ironically, just this week, the Kentucky Court of Appeals ruled that the state could not seize 141 online gambling domains because they are not considered gambling devices.

The move from Microgaming to Cake Poker would allow Doyle's Room to continue to accept U.S. players. Back in early 2007, Doyle's Room decided not to accept online real money players from the U.S., citing the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and payment-processor closures. But in October of 2007, the company decided to open its doors once again to U.S. players saying at the time that, "there are promising signs from lobbying efforts in Washington D.C., and most importantly, the availability of processing options for the players that will ensure the safety of their funds."

Efforts by Casino City to speak with representatives of Doyle's Room and Cake Poker were unsuccessful.
