Poker Nordica Goes Out of Business

Poker Nordica closed its doors on Sunday, ending a six-year run as one of the most successful poker rooms on the Merge Poker Network. The closure came just days after an announcement to players that told them of the imminent cessation of services on the site.

While no reason has been given for the closing, players had suspected that changes were in the air over the past month. Several players had reported having no luck trying to contact customer service personnel over the last month, and even the Merge Network itself seemed reluctant to answer questions related to the site.

But on March 30, the site broke its silence in order to tell players that the poker room would be shutting down. Players received emails informing them of the news, and those who logged into the site were told that April 1 would mark the end of the site’s operation.

However, players who are currently carrying account balances at the site will have thee ability to access their funds. First, players have been given until May 1 to request a withdrawal. This option will require players to have at least the minimum amount necessary for cash outs in order for the withdrawal to be processed. Players also have the option of having their money transferred to another site on the Merge Poker Network.

Since opening in 2006, Poker Nordica had been one of the most successful Merge sites. At the time of its closing, it has the second most traffic of any Merge poker room, trailing only Carbon Poker. The relative success of the room made it a surprise to many observers that Nordica would be forced to close its doors, and the company has not yet released a statement explaining the reasons for the shutdown.
