TonyBet has announced plans to create a new format of multi-table tournament poker: Run It Twice and agree to use NYX Gaming’s Open Gaming System in Lithuania, Estonia, Denmark and the UK.
I played poker over the weekend. It was my first foray to the tables in nearly a year. I was worried that my extended time away from the game would have changed things. Had my absence left me short of experience and skills to play in the modern game?
Nothing had changed.
I was out within two hours.
I got it in good on the turn, and the little devil who lives inside my mind – and the mind of every amateur poker player looking to win the lottery of a tournament win – told me that I would lose. I believed the devil, I always do, and I wanted to run it twice, despite being an overwhelming favourite. But I couldn’t. You can’t run it twice in a poker tournament.
Maybe I will start playing my poker on TonyBet?
The Lithuanian-facing online gambling operation has told their players that commencing in the middle of September they can run it twice in selected multi-table tournaments (MTT).
TonyBet Poker will launch the new games as part of a Run It Twice Freeroll Festival carrying a €15,000 guarantee. The announcement of the promotion was perfectly timed to follow in the wake of Phil Galfond’s declaration that he was going to launch a new online poker room called RunItOnce Poker with a TonyBet representative stating:
“Our platform is run by people who believe that amateurs must not be fed to the sharks.”
NYX Gaming And TonyBet Enter Into Partnership
Global tech company NYX Gaming has entered into a partnership with TonyBet that will see their Open Gaming System (OGS) platform integrated into TonyBet products in Lithuania, Denmark, Estonia, and the UK.
The deal makes NYX Gaming the first major casino supplier to enter into the Lithuanian market. Lithuanian Member of European Parliament (MEP) Tony G created TonyBet in 2009. They are a major player in the Lithuanian market, the place of Tony G’s birth and wedding.
NYX Gaming recently entered the Romanian iGaming market in a relationship that would see their OGS platform used to fire the PokerStars online casino.
