Attack Poker and Bellator have partnered in a multi-year alliance that kicked off at Bellator’s Season 10 debut from Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut on Feb. 28. The alliance will make Attack Poker the official online gaming partner of Bellator, and will be featured throughout Bellator’s live event broadcast, as well as online and through digital campaigns.
Bellator will feature the “Attack of the Night” in every broadcast, which will highlight the most exciting finish or technique featured throughout the broadcast. Attack Poker also will be featured inside the Bellator cage, with logo placement on cross bar and bumper pads.
“Bellator is the toughest tournament in sports, and this partnership will make Attack Poker the toughest, largest, free-to-play poker tournament in the world,” said Ronald Doumani, managing director of the parent company of Attack Poker. “Some of MMA’s top fighters and poker’s top players will converge through this partnership, elevating Attack Poker from online play to an action and entertainment lifestyle.”
Attack Poker brings online play to life through interaction and special events with Team Attack Poker, comprised of some of poker’s top players including Eli Elezra, Luke Schwartz and Billy Baxter.
NEW JERSEY: Many of the online sites in the Garden State are running big-prize freerolls, extreme overlays and member bonuses. Ultimate Poker began its promotion, running until March 9, where all players are refunded the entry fee for any guaranteed tournament that meets the prize-pot requirement.
TRIBAL NATIONS: Since online gaming has become legal in Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey, there are many Indian tribes looking to add online gaming to their revenue streams.
According to an article in Stateline, in 28 states, American Indian Tribes have 460 gaming locations, but none have online gaming.
In Oklahoma, the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes have joined forces and made an agreement to go after players outside of the United States.
They intend to share the profits between their tribes and have come to an agreement on terms with the state to pay certain percentages of the net revenue of house-funded games on a sliding scale and 10 percent of the monthly net revenue of non house-funded card games, including poker, being funded by the players.
Recently, the U.S. government halted the agreement, stating the tribes are getting the bad end of the deal and the state is taking advantage of them. The tribes feel this is a good deal for them and don’t see the state as taking advantage of any kind. So, the tribes have filed a lawsuit against the government.
