Online poker site Interpoker has confirmed in emails to its players that the site will complete its announced move from the International Poker Network to the Ongame Network, owned by Amaya Gaming, near the end of this month.
The move completes a plan to reunify the Intercasino and Interpoker sites that was put into place last year, with Interpoker the final software piece to be shifted. The transition coincides with Amaya’s pending launch of its new “Amaya GO” software platform, believed to include elements from both the Cryptologic and Ongame suites, both already owned by Canada-based Amaya.
News of the pending shift was communicated via separate series of emails to both affiliates and players over the past two weeks.
The message to players announced the site’s plans for “new bonuses, a new lobby and games … all available to play on a fantastic new look website.”
Players were also assured that they would be notified prior to their accounts being migrated over to the new platform.
Separately, the Intercasino home site already includes a page briefly describing the change.
Other than the cosmetic changes attributable to the shift in software platforms, most other Interpoker features will remain. However, according to InterPartners —the affiliate arm of the brand—the Danish Tax and Customs Administration (SKAT) has not approved the new platform. As a result no new Danish players will be accepted and no existing Danish players will be migrated.
Current Danes will remain on the old platform where they will be allowed to play until the Danish government approves the new system.
