Minted Poker left Everleaf Gaming for to the Plutos Network earlier this month. The once well respected site is offering their players a chance to clear a bonus at 100% rakeback that equals their unpaid balance on Everleaf Gaming where some cashouts have been pending for over six months.
Plutos is off to a slow start. There are few players and the games that do run are micro limit. Some players have reported that the Plutos Network software resembles the Everleaf Gaming platform. It seems this may not be a coincidence.
One observant player did some investigating. This poster discovered that Franz Gerhart and Helmut Kleinhans were involved in the Plutos Network. These two individuals were involved with the Everleaf Gaming Network on the management level. Mr. Gerhart was Director of Operations but reportedly left Everleaf last year. Mr. Kleinhans was a lead tech at Everleaf and is still listed as the technical contact for the company on their corporate website.
According to Casino City, Riversource is the software company for Plutos Net and their skins, including Minted Poker. Rhinobit, another software company, has a nearly identical website to Riversource. The coincidence does not stop there. They also share Domain Name Servers. A whois search shows that the IP addresses for both companies are located in Gunzenhausen, Germany.
A check of Rhinobit’s corporate profile shows that both Mr. Gerhart and Mr. Kleinhans are officers in the company. A search for information on Riversource shows that both are founders of the company, with Mr. Gerhart listed as the branch manager.
Too Many Coincidences
Plutos management may not have had anything to do with the implosion of Everleaf Gaming, but it appears these officers may have bailed to create a new company while Everleaf Gaming essentially stiffed their US players and have slow paid or no paid their players in the rest of world. The email coming from Everleafgaming.com is enough to make players wonder.
