Washington State online poker players are down another option today, as Bovada has reportedly closed their doors to residents of the state.
The news was delivered via email to players, with payment processing cited as the primary motivation for the decision. Excerpt:
Due to continuing difficulties finding and maintaining acceptable payment options, we have been forced to make the difficult decision to stop offering our services to residents of your state.
As a resident of Washington, your account has been closed to further activity. Your balance remains safe and in place – simply contact us prior to April 30th to arrange for a payout via the most suitable method. Past this date we cannot guarantee an immediate availability of options for payments to your state.
