Ongame Network Gets Tough
By Staff
Online gaming firm Bwin Interactive Entertainment AG has announced that it has decided to exclude Malta-based virtual casino and poker room NextPoker.com from its Ongame Network.

The Vienna-based firm revealed that it took the action 'due to repeated violations of the rakeback policy’ and ‘in order to further clarify its intentions and standpoint regarding a rakeback-free poker network’.

“NextPoker.com has repeatedly violated the terms and conditions of our rakeback policy and we, therefore, see no solution other than to exclude them from our poker network,” said Kevin O’Neal, Press Officer for Bwin.

“This action is seen as a regrettable but required step towards our vision of operating a rakeback-free network.”

Kahnawake and Gibraltar-licensed Ongame Network was launched in 1999 and is currently used by over 25 of the sector’s top brands including HeyPoker.com, RedKings.com, PokerRoom.com and PokerIdol.com having serviced some 16 million players.
