New Online Poker Start-up Scheme Launched

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Sep 2, 2016

Malta and Russian companies combine to create low-cost opportunities for would-be operators

The Malta-based online poker brand PokerGrant and EvenBet Gaming, a subsidiary of Russian software development group Enterra have partnered up to launch a new start-up focused enterprise providing prospective operators with real-money poker skins on its new network.
The network is designed for poker start-ups with a low initial budget, with what the partnership claims are relatively low set-up costs and rake commissions, allowing new poker skins to spend more on player engagement and retention.
Licensing is included in the deal, although the partnership has not indicated from which jurisdiction this will come.
From sign-up to operational start-up, new operators can be in business within two weeks, the partnership claims. The unquoted initial set-up fee includes two types of poker client software (desktop and Android for mobile), back office and basic software customisation, changing logos, colours and other minor design changes.
No fixed payments are required for network partners. The current rake commission ranges from 10 percent to 20 percent of gross total rake, which is paid monthly.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
