PKR Poker

PKR has said affiliates have "nothing to worry about" after not being able to log in to the PKR.com affiliate site or receive payments for more than a week.

Concerns were raised by affiliates this week, some of them due thousands of pounds from the poker site, after their PKR log in PKR has said affiliates have "nothing to worry about" after not being able to log in to the PKR.com affiliate site or receive payments for more than a week.

Concerns were raised by affiliates this week, some of them due thousands of pounds from the poker site, after their PKR log in details were rejected, leaving them unable to initiate payments or check their account statements.

However, speaking to EGRmagazine.com today, a spokesman for the poker site said: "The affiliate site is in the process of being updated and should be rectified very soon. No one has anything to woyry about when it comes to the financial element."

Speaking to EGRmagazine.com yesterday, one affiliate said: "The egaming industry has endured too many bad situations for affiliates, so I think it's better to be safe than sorry.  It's been a number of days, and I have money in the PKR kitty to collect, but haven't been able to log on, so one can't blame me in the slightest for starting to get concerned."

Affiliates sought reassurance after Linx Media Group, the company behind the Eurolinx, BetOnBet and Linx Casino brands and the BetonBet sportsbook, ceased trading this week, leaving affiliates and players owed account funds totaling thousands of pounds.

The Linx Media Group has ceased trading, leaving players and businesses owed account funds totalling thousands of pounds.

Linx Media is the company behind the Eurolinx, BetOnBet and Linx Casino brands and the BetonBet sportsbook.

A statement on the LinxMedia.com homepage states that Linx Media has "put its businesses into liquidation and will cease trading with immediate effect".

However the statement claimed that liquidators have not yet been appointed, saying only that it will "provide updates on the situation as and when information becomes available".

The statement continued: "All available player funds are held by these Eurolinx, BetOnBet and Linx Casino businesses. As soon as we have information on how to lodge claims with the liquidators, we will communicate this via www.eurolinx.com, www.BetOnBet.com and www.linxcasino.com."

Linx Media was owned by Jo Remme, who is understood to be a Norwegian also known as Jo Arild Remme. He is also alleged to have been involved in scams in Norway including a pyramid scheme with more than a thousand members, and a company called Arctic Uni that claimed to be able to provide sea urchin semen to breeders.

Eurolinx poker claimed to be licensed in Curacao, Linx Casino claimed to be licensed in Kahwanake and Betonbet claimed to be licensed in Malta.

However a statement on the Curacao Egaming Licensing Authority website in response to enquries reads "please note: we do not license www.eurolinx.com or www.betonbet.com".

Maltese regulator the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) issued a similar notice that stated "Eurolinx Ltd is not and has never been a licensed operator with the LGA [and] that the sportsbooks of Alpine Malta (BetonBet and Eurolinks) are not and never were licensed by the LGA".

Linx Media was part of the Microgaming network, and Microgaming said in a statement: "Micrograming has terminated its software licence agreements with the Linx Media Group, with immediate effect. It has been advised that the group companies are insolvent. Microgaming is presently gathering all facts relating to this matter and will provide further announcements as and when information becomes available."
