Victory Poker to Move All Players to Cake Poker

May 31, 2011 - 2:20 PM EDT

Victory Poker players received an email from Cake Poker this morning saying their account would be upgraded to a Cake Poker account on June 1st. All rewards, gold cards, gold chips and tournament tickets will be transferred over to players’ new Cake Poker accounts. Considering that Cake was already handling the software, cashier and customer support, it is unlikely that much will change for Victory Poker players.

We asked the CEO, Dan Fleyshman, for comment. He told us that Cake Poker will be taking over Victory’s player base as of June 1st and that “Victory Poker will continue as a strategy/news/affiliate site for poker and non-poker related products.” When asked why they are transferring their players to Cake, Dan Fleyshman said:

“I’m just emotionally done with continuing as a poker site after #Blackfriday ripped the heart out of the US market which I loved.”

Victory Poker focused much of its marketing on the US market, but two days after Black Friday they chose to pull out of the US. In the interview with Dan Fleyshman that we published last week, he did not mention that they were considering shutting down altogether.

Players received the following email, which was first posted by blogger Haig:

    How does this affect US players accounts that were frozen after BF? How about players that already had a Cake Poker account before Victory Poker switched them over?

      I asked Dan Fleyshman. He told me the following:
      - US players were already switched over to Cake Poker a few days after Black Friday.
      - For players who already had Cake Poker accounts, their funds/points/etc will be transferred to their existing Cake accounts.
