OnGame poker network reported to be closing down

screen-shot-2016-09-27-at-21-41-09Online poker news sources are reporting that OnGame Network (OnGame), one of the industry’s oldest poker networks will close down this October.

The poker network which has had multiple owners including bwin.party Entertainment and Amaya Inc, in recent years’ has suffered from declining active player numbers affecting its game liquidity.

At its peak, Ongame was a leading European B2B poker network, servicing brands such as RedBet, Paradise Poker (Sportingbet) and bwin’s online poker room.

Nevertheless, having lost key partners such as Redbet to competitor networks, Ongame has seen its peak time player liquidity drained to just 150 actives playing on its brands.

Toronto TSX-listed NYX Gaming had acquired OnGame in November 2014 with a view of converting OnGame into the leading network for US regulated online poker services.

However, US plans for Ongame would not come to fulfilment as NYX Gaming governance turned its attention towards more profitable verticals.

This week, industry poker affiliates have revealed that remaining OnGame ‘skins’ (partners) are preparing to migrate from the network. Ongame management is yet to officially confirm the closure of its services, but a closing date in October is expected to be declared.
