Following the announcement earlier this autumn, Everest Poker has left its standalone network to join the likes of Paddy Power, Titan and Willliam Hill on the iPoker network.
The Betclic and Everest brands will join Expekt on the network, though bet-at-home will stay put on GTECH G2’s International Poker Network.
iPoker split in September and Everest will join the recreational iPoker 2 network. According to PokerVIP players, however, the lobby currently displays tables from both iPoker1 and iPoker2. Everest is working to resolve this glitch.
To make the top tier operators must maintain a base of 6,000 monthly active players and introduce 850 new players each month, as well as sustain an unspecified balance between recreational and winning players.
Everest, which reported earnings of $7.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, is expected to boost iPoker’s traffic by 15%. According to PokerScout, the migration has secured iPoker’s No. 2 spot in the traffic rankings.
Everest will be the seventh skin on iPoker’s top tier, alongside Bet365, Paddy Power, Poker770, Titan, William Hill and Winner Poker.
