Entraction Poker Network Withdraws From Canada, Russia, Norway, Israel and Turkey

Entraction Poker Networks Looks To Position Itself For Online Poker In The United States


The Entraction Poker Network recently announced that it would no longer offer online poker to citizens of Canada, Russia, Norway, Israel and Turkey, in an effort to comply with each country’s various gaming laws.

The network, which hosts 112 different online poker rooms, is considered to be one of the largest in the world. Some of the notable skins of the newtork include Betsson, DevilfishPoker, VictorChandler and GoldWinPoker.

Entraction was bought earlier this year by Las Vegas company International Game Technology (IGT) for $115 million. This recent move appears to be an effort to position the two companies to take advantage of online poker in the United States if and when it becomes licensed and regulated.
