The Malta-licensed gaming operator NetBet’s tie-up with online poker card room Poker770 has been finalized after it successfully migrated Poker770’s players to its gaming platform. The re-branded NetBet Poker platform adds to the company’s existing offerings, NetBet Casino and NetBet Sports, to create a singular platform that offers a complete range of products and games.
Long-time players of Poker770 will have a new home in NetBet Poker after Poker770 shuts down. Poker770 players’ accounts and funds will remain intact after the migration. Together, players from the Poker770 brand joining the NetBet players will form a large community of over 2 million players.
“We are aware that players want the choice and security a united platform offers them and so are delighted to be able to make this announcement,” NetBet said in a statement. “Poker770 players will find a familiar home with the same high standards but we also look forward to welcoming many new players to our NetBet family.”
