I received an e-mail today from Hot Shot Poker today, they are closing-

Dear xxMick114xx,

It is with regret that we announce that HotShot Poker will be closing its download client at 18:00 GMT on Tuesday 19th January 2010.

All deposit options will be removed from the poker room although withdrawals will still be permitted. We advise that you withdraw any funds remaining in your account before January 19th.

We hope to make this process as easy as possible for you. Should you have any questions regarding how to access your funds or any other questions then please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated Customer Support team via email – – or through our Live Chat service.

Ja Marina......seems like alot of poker sites closing.I guess if they not making money.......what you going to do eh.


too many poker and online casinos around,
and I think, at the end a player sticks with the sites he already knows better,
yes the new sites sure will get players, but many only take advantage of the welcome offer and at the end still keep playing there where they already play longer, which is their favorite poker site. And the credit crisis is still not over, people have less money to spend on online gaming, that is a fact, so ... hard times for all, yeah for sure.

In my mailbox today.

Following the decision to close down HotShot Poker, we have teamed up with, one of the largest rooms on the Cake Poker Network, so that you can continue to take advantage of their award winning software and fantastic promotions.

Sign-up now through this email and you will be entered into an exclusive HotShot Poker $500 freeroll taking place on Sunday, February 14th at 17:00 GMT. The freeroll will be found in the lobby under the name – HSP $500 Freeroll.

That is not all, you will also get a 110% sign-up bonus up to $600. Use bonus code 600HOT when you make your first deposit and this, as well as an exclusive €1000 freeroll will all be yours. As if that was not enough, you will also be eligible to take part in the $500 Welcome Freeroll which is open to all new players. Full details of these freerolls will be emailed to you once you have made your first deposit.

February is a great month to be playing at with a $30,000 NFL Primetime promotion taking place, where you will have the chance to play in 3 cash tournaments, along with all of the standard promotions you were used to at HotShot Poker, such as the Gold Chips and Gold Cards, and daily qualifiers to the 2010 Irish Poker Open.

Should you have any queries please send an email to and one of their dedicated customer service agents will be on hand to help.

Good luck at the tables,
