Everest Poker to join iPoker Network

Everest Poker, the independent poker room, is about to join iPoker Network, the second largest poker rooms in online poker.

Everest Poker consists of two poker rooms, one licensed in Malta e the other one operating in France, and was one of the very few independent online poker rooms remaining in the industry. Apparently they will scrap its own software platform to move onto the iPoker Network.

In the last year both poker rooms have performed poorly, losing about 40% of their poker cash game traffic, mainly because they had to separate their French players from their rest of the world players, which resulted in two sparsely populated rooms instead of one with decent traffic.

Even though dot.fr site had held its position as the third-largest in France, the dot.com sister has performed particularly badly and players slowly migrated to larger rooms where they could satisfy their need of liquidity.

The 560 average cash game Everest Poker.com players and 650 of Everest Poker.fr will be now combined with the 2.700 that every day populates iPoker network.

After the merge iPoker will take over the third position in terms of traffic in the French market and boost their worldwide traffic by 20%.

However no details have been released as well as any official confirmation from Everest Poker representative has been published so far.
