iGame Malta Ltd. leaving IGT Poker Network soon
By RTR Dennis
In some big poker business news, it’s been announced that iGame Malta Ltd. will be leaving the IGT Network. Going further, iGame will be “finalizing a services agreement with one of the world’s leading poker networks” after exiting IGT. No definitive date has been given for the move to the unnamed network, but it’s supposed to happen in 2012.
If you’re unfamiliar with iGame Malta, they run a few different skins with the most notable being 24hPoker. For years, 24hPoker has been one of the top sites in the business due to their big tournaments and promotions. This site is the primary reason why iGame has managed to amass nearly 1 million players – all of which will be leaving the IGT network.
The reason given for exiting IGT is that iGame wants to give their players access to “top of the line poker software, good liquidity and continuity.” In light of the move, iGame will continue working with the Relax Gaming Network and improving their Fast Poker product, which allows grinders to play more poker hands in less amount of time.
