Poker Moguls

, 2005-03-20, by TwoGun

Party Poker and Empire Poker form the largest internet poker room in the world. As part of a plan for future expansion, the owners of Party Poker may soon float their company on the London Stock Exchange. This would not make them the first publicly traded online poker room, but it would still be quite an event in the online poker industry.

The owners of Party stand to rake in a lot of money if their poker room goes public. Vikrant Bhargava, a 15% owner in Party Poker, is worth roughly 450 million pounds due to his stake in the company.

Bhargava credits the success of Party Poker to clever marketing and successfully dealing with critical issues surrounding a poker room. To find out more, read his interview with The Guardian.
