|Dublin-based software developer CryptoLogic Limited has announced a three-year licensing contract through its WagerLogic subsidiary with OPoker.com, a new online poker site launched by a group of leading Scandinavian online poker executives.|
Under the agreement, CryptoLogic will serve as OPoker.com’s sole provider of gaming software designed for the Scandinavian market as well as customer support services, e-cash management and business service support.
“Today’s announcement is consistent with our strategic imperative of adding liquidity and strengthening the CryptoLogic poker network within Europe, including Scandinavia,” said Brian Hadfield, President and Chief Executive Officer for CryptoLogic.
“CryptoLogic’s partnership with OPoker.com shows that even while we grow into other parts of the world, we’re also expanding in our core European market.”
OPoker.com will now have access to a network of over 10,000 concurrent users with its players able to participate in some of the industry’s most popular events including the Caribbean Poker Classic and the Head Hunter Challenge, a tournament concept where players win cash for every participant they eliminate.
“CryptoLogic shares our vision of providing our players with top-quality poker software, tailored to local interests and cultures,” said Daniel Andersson, Chief Executive Officer for OPoker.com.
“Together, we will make OPoker.com a destination of choice for players across Scandinavia and beyond.”
“The combination of CryptoLogic’s technical solutions and OPoker.com’s industry knowledge and expertise make this partnership a natural fit,” said Justin Thouin, Vice-President of Product Management and Business Development for CryptoLogic.
