Players report receiving unwanted spam emails
Online casino operators' attempts to stimulate business with an "acquired" player database are not a rarity these days, but the recent Merge poker site Walker Poker's association with a brand having a historically dubious background surprised many industry experts.
A number of players have reported receiving spam emails from the company with the subject title 'ultimate bet USA' and the greeting "Dear UB/AP player." The email contained welcome note to US players and a rich offer of promotions. Still, an unpleasant experience is something that remains etched in one's memory; so many players would rather avoid any risky operation.
Walker Poker has been previously associated with the brand Wingows Poker that was fairly criticized some time ago.
The key question is how Walker Poker came into possession of the contact addresses of players who declared never to have played on the site. In the past, there were also claims that UB/AP player data was stolen.
Finally, some are guessing that UB/AP itself might have sold its player details, but Walker Poker remains silent on the source and sequence of events.
