POKER NETWORK CLOSING AFTER TEN YEARS IN THE BUSINESS
2014-02-21

The International Poker Network started by Boss Media a decade ago will soon be closing as part of the GTech group's strategy to focus on regulated markets, using the software for clients in often ring-fenced dedicated environments.

Many of the industry's top brands have been members of IPN at one stage or another in their development, but the trend toward national regulation, and the desire of many operators to work within legalised national systems, has created new business demands and models.

This has resulted in brands either moving on or adopting dual platform strategies.

Owner GTech is a major international business, and it is anticipated that the shutdown of the IPN will be carried out in a professional manner that takes the welfare of players into consideration, and that the closure will be efficiently communicated.





PARTY POKER'S NEW SOFTWARE READY TO GO
2013-09-02

Party Poker's much-discussed software revamp Bicimotos is slightly behind schedule but is ready to go and will be implemented later this (September) month, according to company sources.
Opinions based on the testing phase vary on how dramatic the changes are likely to be, with some experts opining that the new offering will be more an incremental improvement than a revolutionary development, and others holding the view that the changes are more fundamental and significant (see previous InfoPowa reports).
Bwin's last set of results, posted last week, saw CEO Norbert Teufelberger commenting:
"This [Agile system] change in our working practices has been instrumental in ensuring that our new PartyPoker product is ready for launch, firstly into the dotcom environment and then into our core nationally regulated markets.
"The launch will reposition the PartyPoker brand ahead of the opening of the US market and revitalise the product, ensuring that it more than meets the expectations of today's recreational digital consumer."
