Ongame Network Signs Deal with RedBet Gaming
Ongame Network Limited and RedBet Gaming Limited have signed a two year licensing deal for online poker operations.
Ongame Network Limited, a subsidiary of the online gaming solutions provider, Amaya Gaming Group, has signed a deal with gaming operator, RebBet Gaming Limited. The two year licensing deal will see the Ongame Network powering RedBet Gaming’s online poker operations.
With this deal, RedBet Gaming is moving from IGT’s Entraction Poker Network to Ongame.
When leaving the IGT poker network we did a thorough investigation of all business-to-business poker providers, announced Adam Vella, RedBet Gaming’s Head of Poker.
Selecting Ongame Network was an easy choice. Ongame Network combines excellent network management with a rock solid technical platform. Today, Ongame Network provides poker to all our major sites.
Ongame will power RedBet Gaming operations including RedBet.com, Whitebet.com and Heypoker.com.
Darcy Krogh, Vice President of Business Development for the Amaya Gaming Group echoed the sentiment from RedBet.
We’re pleased to add RedBet Gaming to our growing family of clients and look forward to exceeding its expectations in us as a technology partner, said Krogh.
We continue to execute on Amaya Gaming Group’s plan for Ongame Network, which is to leverage its scalable software architecture and infrastructure to add new partners to Ongame Network’s network including in new jurisdictions. With Amaya Gaming Group’s regulatory experience and proven platforms in both poker and casino, we are an increasingly viable option for those looking for new partnerships online.
Montreal based Amaya Gaming purchased the Ongame Network in October for a $19.3 million down payment with reports of a total of $12.9 million more expected in payments over the next five years. It was purchased from bwin.party Digital Entertainment. The company also owns Cadillac Jack Incorporated, a technology and electronic machine supplier.
RedBet’s popular promotions, such as welcome bonuses and freeroll, will continue to be run via IGT for a few weeks; however IGT plans to close by the end of the year. A number of other skins have been forced to find new networks with IGT’s closure. iGame and BetVictor have moved to the Microgaming Network, while CardBet can now be found on the Revolution Gaming Network. There are unconfirmed rumors that the Whitebet room belonging to RedBet will be closed at some stage and that its players will be moved to the RedBet room.
