Interpoker has announced that the skin will leave the Spielo G2 Poker Network for the established Ongame network.
The movement of Interpoker was inevitable given that the poker site and the Ongame network are both owned by the Amaya Gaming Group. The website is owned by CryptoLogic, which was acquired by Amaya in a $36 million deal in February of 2012.
The online poker website will relaunch on the Ongame network on the 24th of April and will have a mode of facilitation for the movement of player liquidity. Interpoker’s Danish players will remain on the Spielo G2 Poker Network until the website receives approval from the Danish Gaming Authority.
The Ongame Network has added a reputable poker skin to its offering of poker sites. The acquisition will allow the network to remain relevant, especially after losing its flagship skin, Betfair to the Playtech’s iPoker Network. Betfair plans to migrate from the network in July. The Ongame network also plans to launch a Playboy-branded poker website in the upcoming year as well.
Ongame’s parent company, Amaya, is also making plans to enter the United States market. The gaming operator has an agreement with Bally Technologies to provide software and gaming products.
