PartyGaming Expands Empire With $250M Purchase


Finally, the feud has ended

PartyGaming has acquired Empire Poker, aceclub.com, and starluckcasino.com for $250,000,000 dollars.

Our favorite online soap opera is no more.

The whole "flap" began in Q'4 of last year, when Party ripped the skins off of Empire Poker. The loss of players from the skin reduction left Empire in ruins, reducing the number of players on its site by 40 percent.

This obviously de-valued Empire's, um, value, and PartyGaming swooped in to buy.

Legal wrangling ensued.

With posturing and prosecuting aside, PartyGaming can now peacefully go about doing what it does best...making ungodly sums of money again.
