  • Bwin and PartyGaming which both service online poker, casino and sportsbook have merged. Ongame which ran the poker room was acquired by Bwin in 2005. What does this mean for players? The company is definitely in solid financial shape so there is less risk of any deposits getting frozen or delay in payments. One of the reasons some sites have problems is that they were offering real money games to USA market without a clear signal from the US government whether it was legal or not. Then US gov has a heavy handed approach where they can suddenly out of the blue seize domains and freeze bank accounts as happened with FullTilt. Well, this is something that publicly traded companies are not likely to test as they have obligations to shareholders. Sites like 888 and PartyPoker withdrew from the USA while others chose to stay. Those that stayed were private companies. So the lesson here is that a well managed private company like PokerStars is safe but a publicly traded company offers the best risk minimizing option.
