Empire Poker Re-Merges With Party Poker

Online Poker, 2006-04-06, by TwoGun

In October, Party Poker split away from its network partners, which were Empire Poker, Eurobet, MultiPoker, and Intertops Poker. In the ensuing months, Party Gaming (the company that owns Party Poker) bought MultiPoker and Intertops Poker. Eurobet decided to just join another poker network.

The one network partner whose future was unclear was Empire Poker. For several months, Empire operated as a stand-alone cardroom. Empire Online, the company that owns Empire Poker, later sued Party Gaming over its decision to split from the network. The two companies settled the litigation with Party Gaming agreeing to buy Empire Poker for $250 million.

Since Party Gaming owns both Party Poker and Empire Poker, it has decided to merge the two poker rooms once again. They now both share almost all of the same games.
