European e-wallet provider MuchBetter has signed Chris Moneymaker as its latest ambassador. The partnership with Moneymaker has an interesting twist to it as the 2003 WSOP Main Event winner has had a public battle with American e-wallet giant PayPal.
Chris Moneymaker announced on social media in May 2021 that PayPal had suddenly seized $12,000 of his funds and did not give him much of an explanation even when he reached out. PayPal is not very friendly towards online gambling sites and has seized funds for a number of online gamblers over the years who did nothing about it as they did not have a huge platform like Moneymaker.
Moneymaker decided to take legal action against PayPal and hired a top legal firm. The Poker Hall of Famer also called on PayPal users who had suffered a similar experience at the hands of PayPal and said that he planned to launch a class action lawsuit against the payment provider.
Moneymaker reported in June that PayPal had refunded his $12,000 and said he would take his name out of the lawsuit but would still go on with the legal action to teach PayPal a lesson.
MuchBetter has a more friendly policy towards online gambling sites and is looking to leverage Moneymaker and his recent history
with PayPal to their advantage. They have launched a special promotion in September.
