Companies prepare for legalised U.S. online poker market
 
The Australian gaming supply company Aristocrat Technologies has partnered with the interactive division of US gambling content provider Bally Technologies to offer the benefit of their poker networks as a business-to-business product for US operators as the possibility of legalised online poker in the United States draws closer.
 
The two companies will arrange deals with leading poker providers, integrating the products into their respective i-gaming platforms.
 
Bally recently acquired Chiligaming's online gambling platform, whilst Aristocrat has secured a deal with the GameAccount Network.
 
Richard Haddrill, chief exec at Bally Technologies, says: “By teaming up, Bally and Aristocrat can source and integrate with the strongest online poker products, specifically tailored for this market, which can help our customers maintain their leadership position in both land-based and on-line gaming.”
