LEANDER GAMES WIN FULL TILT POKER SUPPLY DEAL
2014-01-22

Full Tilt Poker parent company The Rational Group has chosen Leander Games following a competitive bid process for the provision of a casino gaming platform and game content as it expands from online poker only to online casino gaming.

Technical integration has already begun and will leverage Leanders LeGa platform for the launch of exclusive games along with a selection of games from Leander's partner portfolios.

Full Tilt will additionally launch new third-party content from a range of "boutique" game developers, a statement said.

The roll out of Blackjack and Roulette is already in test phase on the Full Tilt platform, while the launch of Leander's LeGa platform is expected this Spring.

This is a landmark deal for Leander, said Leander chief executive officer Steven Matsell. We are incredibly proud that Rational Group has recognised Leander as a strategic partner to move forward with on this incredible project.

"This partnership will change Leanders position within the marketplace from new kid on the block to a serious contender. We are a small but dedicated team who live and breathe delivering the best games possible and this deal is testament to the quality of our offering. We are excited about the next few months as we work on our biggest venture to date.

Leander is the leader in a new generation of gaming platforms, said Sam Hobcraft, Director of Casino for Rational Group. Theyre smart, creative, nimble and combine speed-to-market with technical excellence.




'BAD BEAT' CARTER COMES GOOD IN URUGUAY POKER TOURNEY
2013-11-26

American player Carter Gill, whose shock and disappointment at a badbeat in a tournament went viral on YouTube earlier this year, Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US had nothing but smiles this week after taking down the last Latin American Poker Tour event for 2013 at the Mantra Resort, Spa and Casino in Punta del Esta, Uruguay.
The event attracted 508 entries and by the time the final table was reached Gill was in firm control as chip leader, a position he managed to maintain right through to the heads up against Ivan Raich.
Raich proved he's no slouch at the table when under pressure, and fought back sufficiently to convince Gill that a two-way chop would be a good idea, with Gill taking $194,692 and Raich $172,568, leaving $24,000 on the table for the ultimate winner.
The duo than got down to business in an intense heads up that saw the lead change several times before Gill was able to work his way into a two-to-one advantage and finish his plucky opponent off.
The win was worth $218,692 to Gill, whilst Raich took home a well-deserved $172,568. Other final table pay-outs looked like this:
Ariel Mantel $106,300
Andre Korn $79,100
Juan Perez Solari $59,840
Cesar Sanguinetti $45,100
Joao Bauer NetoCesar $33,780
Walid Mubarak $25,840


PLAYTECH CONFIRMS ACQUISITION OF POKER STRATEGY.COM
2013-07-12

Online gambling software group Playtech plc has confirmed rumours earlier this month (see previous InfoPowa reports) that it is about to acquire the high profile and Gibraltar-based online poker information and affiliate marketing site Poker Strategy.com.
Describing the acquisition as a "bolt on" project, Playtech revealed Thursday that the price it is paying is Euro 38.3 million, which will be funded from existing cash resources.
The business complements both Playtech's poker offering and its PTTS marketing division, a company statement noted.
The acquisition from owner Etruvian Holdings Limited includes certain of Poker Strategy's fellow subsidiaries, which Playtech describes as "....one of the world's largest poker affiliate businesses, targeting European markets and utilising an online poker school and player community to provide professional content in more than a dozen languages to attract new and experienced players and help them improve their game through tailored training content by way of video clips, professional content and tips, with the goal to ultimately increase player value."
The statement notes that Poker Strategy and its subsidiaries generate income on a revenue-sharing model in respect of players introduced to its clients for a period following player sign-up.
Dominik Kofert and Enrique Guzmn, the two founders of Poker Strategy, are providing a guarantee of the seller's obligations and will both remain with the acquired business on a consultancy basis. Conditions attached to the deal include agreements on non-compete and non-solicitation provisions.
Playtech directors believe the acquisition is complementary to both Playtech's PTTS marketing division and its overall poker offering, further strengthening Playtech's position in online poker and providing a community-based model for player acquisition, which is attractive to both social and real-money players in existing and soon to be regulated markets.
The acquisition will allow Playtech to further diversify its business by providing licensees with access to the world's largest independent poker community with over six million members, thereby cementing existing relationships and creating incremental opportunities for both software and PTTS marketing.
For the period 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2012, Poker Strategy generated a profit before tax of approximately Euro 19.5 million. As at 31 December 2012, it had gross assets of approximately Euro 18.5 million and net assets of approximately Euro 16.3 million.
Playtech believes that given the combination of cost and revenue synergies, the acquisition is earnings enhancing.
