Gaming technology company has been involved in online poker game development since 2006.
US online poker consultant, tournament and reality show presenter World Poker Fund Holdings has announced that it has signed a $15 million agreement to acquire RealDeck, Inc., a technology company that has been involved in online poker game development since 2006 and holds valuable intellectual property rights.
In a statement Friday, World Poker Fund said that the patented RealDeck poker platform provides poker players the ability to play real poker on their computer or Internet-enabled device with a live dealer and real cards, creating a transparent and interactive poker experience emulating the real-card hand outcomes and the overall live-dealer experience playing live at a casino.
"The RealDeck system can host poker games bringing together players from anywhere in the world," the statement claims. "A planned future release of the RealDeck software will include peer-to-peer audio and video features, which are also included in our patent filing. This component will allow players to host their Home Games with a live dealer, from our site with the ability to see and talk to their friends while they play in a secure and private setting."
