WSOP.com have come under fire this week after several players complained of lengthy delays when cashing out, and claims that $20,000 went missing during a PayPal transaction from the site…


The WSOP’s online pokerroom allows players in New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware to play for real money, but actually getting your winnings out has seemingly become problematic for many – with PayPal payments the main culprit it appears…


…with Maryland pro Harder claiming that WSOP.com – owned by Caesars Entertainment Corporation – have no money on PayPal to meet player withdrawals


 The initial Twitter complaint came from Aaron Mermelstein, who likened the payout delays to a Ponzi scheme… people not being paid until others have deposited being the gist of the claim…

The payout problems come in the same week as the site’s software wrongly paid out a pot during the WSOP.com Sunday tournaments…

…with poker player and writer John Mehaffey one of the most vocal in his condemnation of the WSOP.com site and their lack of communication with players over this and other issues…


Mehaffey was banned from WSOP.com two years ago after complaining about a terrible cashout experience he had on the site, and claimed subsequent legal threats from the site were ‘meritless thuggery’.

Last month, June 2019, saw the Wsop.com and 888.com pokerrooms, both running on the All American Poker Network, bring in a combined $861,713 in revenue.
