Goes Out Of Business

Two years after opening up for business in 2009, online poker site has announced it is now shutting shop and has advised players that they should withdraw their money from the site by January 31st, 2011.
Online poker room was first conceived by software developer David Holdsworth, who then partnered with a group already experienced in the gaming software industry, to form a company called Poker Inc.
Having concentrated on creating a user friendly interface with functional graphics, clear support information, and extra features such as revealing just one hole card, then launched on the Merge Gaming Network in March 2009.
BigBetPoker was subsequently added to other sites on the network, which included Carbon Poker, Poker Nordica, Reefer Poker, ACED, Iron Duke, and Spin32.
Despite being a low traffic network, Merge Gaming is well known for its excellent multi-tabling software, as well as accepting US players and expressing their optimism at the time, a Big Bet Poker spokesperson stated:
“We believe that the software features combined with the outstanding tournament schedule will help us grow into a major player in the online poker market.”
Alas for site things did not progress as well as they had hoped and the head of Jay Parcells announced recently:
“Over the last two years, we gave poker our best shot but in the end determined that several factors made an early exit from the market the smart choice. We know this comes as a surprise to many of our partners who joined on in the last year and we apologize for any inconvenience caused.”
Amazingly, another online poker site located at went out of business in 2004 and it could be the case that the new business may have suffered from the tarnished brand name.
