This is a discussion on Safety of Carbon poker? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Is it safe to have money on Carbon right now?
I love playing on the site. They allow US players, the software looks very nice,
I love playing on the site. They allow US players, the software looks very nice, and I am enjoying the games that I've been able to play. However, I am a little bit nervous about my bankroll because I've been seeing things about the site possibly drifting towards a close. Is this rumor true? How much time does the site have left?
My bankroll is not super huge, but I played a lot of tournaments to build it and it's large enough that it would be disappointing to lose. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.
The Merge Gaming Network and skins have a long history of delayed withdrawals. In June 2012, the skins Carbon Poker, Aced, Sportsbook and Players Only left the Merge Network Cashier and joined the Jazette Cashier.
The Merge Gaming Network operates under the License No. 1668/JAZ from Curacao eGaming (http://www.curacao-egaming.com). JAZ is allegedly the contraction for Jazette and this would mean that Jazette Enterprise is allegedly the owner/operator of the Master License holder Curacao eGaming.
Please take note that the owner/operator of Curacao eGaming is not stated on the website, which is very curious for a Master Lincense holder.
Jazette is the parent company of Sportingbet.ag, Sportsbook.com and several other prominent brand names connected to the international online sportsbetting scene, with some of Jazette’s brands also having experience in online poker.
Lock Poker’s propaganda minister Shane Bridges admitted February 2015 to HipAintCheap that Merge went through the same **** like Lock Poker, but recovered. Merge reached years ago the point where it had not enough money on hand to process the current withdrawal requests. The amount of all withdrawal requests are usually up to 10% of all account balances. While Merge was somehow able to get enough money on hand to process the current withdrawal requests, Lock Poker failed.
Merge Gaming Network removes Skrill withdrawal option
September 2015, players at the various Merge Gaming Network rooms, including Carbon Poker, Sportsbook.ag, and BetUSA, received an e-mail informing them of the news if they had Skrill withdrawals pending. This is not the first time at Merge has dumped Skrill, the network and its players went through this same ordeal in late April.
The Merge Gaming Network has been having significant cash out delays since the beginning of 2015. Players are having to wait months to receive their withdrawal request, while gaming operators are obliged to cash out the hole account balance at any time!

I like Carbon, but stopped playing there after a delay in getting a check.
