An Unusual Online Poker Dilemma
It’s common for sites to experience an outage due to an update, but it’s not often that the downtime lasts this long. So, this is a very unusual situation in the poker world.
We understand that players are concerned about their money – especially those that have quite large bankrolls. Of course, we’ve seen players getting incredibly frustrated on social media.
What Has Caused the Bovada Poker Outage?
According to Bovada and Ignition, the outage is due to an “update gone wrong”. They have both been trusted online poker sites for over 20 years, and there’s no reason to believe that there is anything untoward happening.
Both sites have stressed multiple times that players’ money is safe. So, if you’re a member of either Ignition Poker or Bovada Poker, it’s important that you don’t get too stressed out.
As a consolation, the sites will most certainly be thanking players with a generous offer once they come back online.
When we say we’re committed to making things right, we mean it. This sucks, and while we’ll never make up for this downtime, we’re thinking about ways we can thank you for your loyalty.
