Partygaming and bwin Merge - Is a New Online Top Dog on the Horizon?

3 30 July 2010 , By: compncards
It was announced today that bwin and Partygaming have completed the talk of a merger and will now form one company in 2011.  Essentially, the assets of bwin will be transferred to Partygaming but bwin will have the majority of the shares. I have been watching this for a while due to the fact that I do some work for some sites run by bwin, so this merger has been of keen interest to me.   However, anyone that plays online poker should be keeping an eye on bwin and Partygaming over the next few months.
