Former US poker industry trail blazer to close its doors 15 October

Poker industry reports indicate the closure of Ongame Network next month following a slow decline in active player counts which, according to PokerScout, currently average at 100 over a seven day period.
InfoPowa readers will recall the numerous change of hands Ongame has undergone in the past four years, being sold by BWIN to Amaya Inc. in October 2012 who two years later went on to sell the business to NYX Gaming Group.
NYX Gaming Group subsequently sold the business to an unidentified European "management group" in April 2016 retaining "a significant share" and exclusive rights to use the poker product across North America.
According to Russian poker affiliate website Pokeroff, Ongame has informed customers it will close its virtual doors on October 15, 2016.

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.
