Online Casino Sports Book Operator Takes Control of Poker Room

During the last couple of weeks we have been hearing a lot about the new Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and it’s implications over the online casino industry. It would be logical to presume that we will keep hearing about it in the near future as well, as not all is clear and there are many developments as we go. For example, the player of a well-respected online casino poker room found out this week that they are no longer the clients of their favorite site, and that now they are considered the players of a different betting group, one that runs the most popular online casino sports book in the industry. Practically speaking there is no difference for the players, and they will keep playing the same games they always did, however their money will go to the sports book operator as the former poker site no longer exists.

Such changes are part of the scenery in today’s online casino gambling industry, both the casino one and the online sports betting one. Companies are purchasing other firms, and the online casino industry is changing. We see that even firms that specialize in sports betting, for instance, are taking over other firms that offer casino games. This is a good opportunity for online casino operators to expand their selection and attractions portfolio. Players-wise, it is better for a company to be bought by another gambling operator than to close its business entirely. With the market going global it’s important for sports betting operators to include casino games in their portfolio as maximizing their revenue will be imperative for there future survival.

If you happen to go online and log into your favorite online casino or online sportsbook, only to realize that the brand has change, don’t panic. This does not necessarily means that your site is going in a wrong path. You might even find the selection and quality of service improve over time. The online casino sports book that bought the mentioned poker room is one of the largest gambling operators in the market, and players will only benefit form the deal. Give things some time, and you’ll surely see that as a player – you always win.
