Thanks to Internet and television media, poker has officially exploded outside of its native US homeland in 2005. CEO of Party Gaming, Richard Segal, a leading online casinos operator, sees technology boosting the poker explosion further in the New Year. Online casinos poker became center stage in the online gambling industry last year, and ignited three huge London stock market floatations, generating revenues of around $2 billion and releasing poker games and books which are spreading all over the world.
Online Casinos operator, Party Gaming, is responsible for approximately half of the $2 billion sum, with large plans for future growth and expansion. The company is constantly looking for potential acquisitions, and is also considering the future online casinos venues of mobile phones and interactive television to reach more players and a wider audience.
Party Gaming is also planning on launching its current and new online casinos games in six new languages and currencies. A ‘shared purse’ will also be launched, helping online casinos players switch from game to game, and finally, its new Party Casino site is supposed to be as popular as the existing Star Luck Casino it runs. It seems that 2006 is going to be a huge year for Party Gaming, and its online gambling players.
