Name change for online poker networks the latest trend?
There seems to have been a rush on online poker network's rebranding and renaming in the past few weeks.
The Entraction Network, acquired by International Games Technology (IGT) towards the middle of last year, has been rebranded "IGT Poker", while the Yatahay Network has become the "Winning Poker Network".
Action Poker Network has morphed into the "Chico Poker Network, and last but not least, B3W Network is now known as the "Poker Pack Network".
PokerScout's latest stats indicate that the worldwide online poker market (excluding Italy) has decreased 33 percent in the past year, largely due to a combination of the continued fall out of US Federal action dubbed "Black Friday" and global stagnation in the games popularity.
