The popular and fast growing poker app PokerMaster has announced that it has been acquired by an Irish Cyber Company. This occurred last year in May but the details haven’t been released until now.
Still somewhat a mystery though, is the name of the actual Irish company. It could be a raft of prominent organisations involved in Gaming, potentially holding gaming licenses in the region that claim global relevance. As we know in Australia, such licenses aren’t specifically recognised and some service offering are limited.
PokerMaster launched in China in 2014 and a broader global market, including Australia, in 2016. It and has continued to gain prominence since then, gaining significant momentum in 2017. Already in 2018, the company has targeted various Asian markets. It has enabled their impressive platform to be used by players for free, across intimate home games to multi table tournaments and even satellite events into some of the biggest tournaments in the world, such as the Asian Poker Tour (APT).
We’re told that in the coming months PokerMaster have grand plans to further develop their offerings in Australia and in various key Australasian markets. Having significant backing makes expansion more likely to occur, a positive for the poker industry.
Over the past two weeks PokerMaster have made available various APT satellite events and this is expected continue in the coming weeks. The satellite structure offers players the opportunity to win seats into the APT Macau Main Event. We’ll announce specific dates when they are confirmed.
