Playtech’s Poker Revenue Falls Nine Percent
iPoker Network Confirms “Significant New Licensees” In Pipeline As Challenging Market Takes Toll
Playtech, owner of the iPoker network, today confirmed a fall in first half 2012 poker revenue of nine percent to €9.7 million from €10.7 million in the first half of 2011.
The company said in its interim statement, “The international poker market remained challenging for the first six months of the year. The iPoker network maintained its position as the leading independent poker network in the dotcom market place, and we are currently in discussions with a number of significant new licensees who wish to join the network.”
