|According to numerous message board complaints, online poker network and software provider Digital Gaming Systems (DGS) is still having problems paying players after being taken over by little known Cintaly Holdings Corporation.|
Disturbing unpaid player reports surfaced again this week alleging little evidence of any substance to the takeover company. DGS had earlier announced that it had signed an agreement ‘to transfer’ its assets to Cintaly although few details of the deal or the consideration involved were released. Cintaly stated that it intended to have the network operational again within days but these assurances have apparently not been realised as communication with players has been reportedly unsatisfactory with accounts being locked when players voice criticism or frustrations.
The network has been in trouble for some time with member sites migrating to other networks along with an increasing number of unpaid players from the few remaining and largely dormant DGS skins casting doubt on Cintaly. Reports allege that sites such as JunglePoker.com remain closed except for ring gameplay although the cashier reopened on February 11 with the imposition of new withdrawal rules, which appears to suggest that previous account balances will not be honoured.
Many operators on DGS’ network migrated to new homes such as the fast-growing Merge Poker and Dobrosoft's Gold Chip networks with many complaining that they have been left in the position of having to pay DGS-owed money to players out of their own pockets.
