World Poker Exchange Shuts Down

In an ominous sign of things to come at World Sports Exchange, the struggling online poker site’s World Poker Exchange has announced it is closing its doors for good.

WSEX.com has engaged in slow payouts over the past two years and is believed to owe players close to one million dollars.

At last check, the online poker room only had an average of 10 reach cash players at any given time during the week. 

The following message was sent out to customers and affiliates on Friday. 

 

 

Dear Poker Customers and Affiliates,

 

It is with great regret that we announce the closure of World Poker Exchange.

 

As of 1pm ET on Wednesday 15th February 2012, our poker software will no longer be available, and any active poker room balance you may have will be transferred to your World Sports Exchange account. Rake will be paid out as normal on the following Monday.

 

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused. Our attention is now focused on improving our sports betting and casino products.

 

Thank you for playing at WorldPX, and we hope you continue to enjoy playing at World Sports Exchange Sportsbook and Casino.

 

Sincerely,

 

Management & Staff WSEX.com
