Tribeca has demonstrated clear knowledge and expertise on how to operate and manage an ePoker room while reinforcing our brand to our customers.”
“Blue Square is a perfect match for us at Tribeca. They have fantastic brands and many innovative strategies to introduce their customers to BlueSquare.com. The commitment and energy that the Blue Square team has demonstrated in building the Blue Square brand is substantial and impressive. We are confident the Blue Square team will bring the same innovative strategies and expertise to building a dominant ePoker room for the Blue Square customers.” Commented Steve Cook, European Managing Director for Tribeca.
