UIGEA

After the UIGEA, myCitadel kept taking U.S. business, which meant it became a target of U.S. regulators. In 2008, ESI Entertainment Systems Inc., the parent company to online payment processors Citadel Commerce Corp., has settled with the United States attorney generalís office for $9.1 million for violating portions of the Wire Act. As part of the agreement, ESI has agreed to help the USAO with further investigations. Criminal charges against the company will be waved in December 2009 if the company cooperates fully.

ESI had allegedly processed more than $2 billion in Internet gambling payments since it was founded in 1999. The company went public in 2006 and was charged with using the wires to transmit interstate and foreign commerce wagers on behalf of people engaged in the business of wagering, conducting an illegal gambling business, conducting international monetary transactions for purposes of promoting illegal gambling, and operating an unlicensed money-transmitting business. About 80 percent of the payments that were processed by Citadel were done by customers located in the United States.

Today

myCitadel was never (and still isn't) a very popular ewallet option for online poker players. It is hard to gauge their reputation based on the lack of feedback from the poker community. Even though there is no particular reason to think they aren't solid, the lack of positive feedback from poker players by itself is enough to warrant caution in using them.
