Unibet Becomes a Poker Network

Just two short years ago Swedish owned poker site Unibet decided to jump ship from the MPN (Microgaimg) network, claiming at the time that "being part of a poker network is not sustainable for Unibet in the long term." It would seem, however, that being part of a poker network that you own might be a different story, and with the announcement that Finnish site Pokerihuone's player base is to be added to their standalone site it looks like that is exactly what Unibet is to become.

The idea is for Pokerihuone to operate as a separate skin but to share player pools with Unibet and share the same poker experience.

Given that Unibet already own Pokerihuone after purchasing it as part of their €59m acquisition iGame holding back in August of last year, it makes sense from a business perspective that the two rooms share liquidity.

With Unibet also laying claim to Stan James online poker offering, purchased last July for £19m ($28m), it might ust be a matter of time before the "Unibet Network" recruits another skin to its software.

Unibet's software has specifically been designed to appeal to recreational (hobby) poker players, with the result that the competition often times can be very soft. Unibet Poker offers the poker variants Hold'em and Omaha and a variant called Fast Hold'em, which instantly deals you a new hand at a new table as soon as you fold.
