How's Empire Doing? Ignore the Bounced Check, Please.

Category: Is My Money Safe?

A poster on 2+2 received a check withdrawal from Empire which bounced.

According to Empire, there was a problem with the account on which the check was drawn and Empire HAD ALREADY SENT A REPLACEMENT.

I have recently received a Neteller withdrawal from Empire Poker with no problems. But at a minimum, bounced checks do not inspire confidence given the upheaval after Party Poker split their players from the "Party Skin" sites.

I doubt that this bounced check is a sign of Empire failing to make money -- this will be known soon enough as they are publicly traded. However, a business serving a group of customers who already worry about bankroll safety should take more care with this.
