Online Casino Develops New Poker Technology
Online casino company Pinnacle Sports is the latest gambling firm to announce its intention to enter the ever expanding world of online poker technology. The news was welcomed by industry analysts and online casino fans alike, with the new poker technology expected to attract casino players from over 80 countries worldwide. A spokesman for the online casino firm stated the new site is expected to be launched on the Prima Network in the first quarter of 2006.
Due to high levels of competition in the poker industry, many new online casino technology sites face an uphill battle in attracting enough players to generate large prize pools. By choosing to market itself through the Prima Network, the new online casino poker technology from Pinnacle Sports will be the 18th card room to join the network in the last year. The deal gives the new site access to an international database of online casino players, along with access to Microgaming software that offers a wide selection of poker games catering for all levels. The Prima Network will also provide full marketing support for the new site plus weekly prize pools designed to attract new poker fans.
Online poker technology continues to be the fastest growing area of online casino revenue. New poker sites are joining poker networks each week with companies like Pinnacle Sports hoping to capitalize on the positive market conditions. Although the poker boom originated in the United States, more recently online casino players from the United Kingdom and Ireland have been frequenting poker sites, and Pinnacle Sports is expected to market heavily to players in these locations.
