Orbis releases poker solution.

Orbis provides interactive gaming and betting solutions and have recently released Texas Hold’em as part of the OpenBet Rake Games module. This launch will be on a platform of a web-based portal as well as a dedicated Sky television channel. The channel includes televised tournaments combining Internet players with those accessing interactively through their remote control.

Not only have Orbis developed a tailored product for Sky Bet, but also they have provided the enabling technology for this revolutionary fully integrated poker solution. All this is presented as a non-download, flash-based method. Using OpenBet's 'One Account, One Wallet' solution, Sky Bet customers have the opportunity to play tournaments online and via iTV.

‘We are very pleased and proud to launch our OpenBet Poker and feel we have a truly unique product with dual platforms feeding one poker environment, said David Loveday, Managing Director of Orbis. ‘Having worked closely with Sky Bet to incorporate several exclusive features, we have developed a powerful product that reflects their vision for the future of online poker.’

Richard Flint, Managing Director of Sky Bet, said ‘We chose to work with Orbis because they were able to offer us a poker solution that was flexible and adaptable enough to work across all technology platforms, initially Internet, iTV, and live broadcast TV. Orbis also offered us an easy way for customers to transfer money into and out of the poker room from the sportsbook, as well as a single database view for customer analysis. We also felt confident that Orbis could meet the high regulatory and compliance standards that Sky requires. We have been extremely pleased with the growth in liquidity in our poker room in the weeks since launch.’

OpenBet presents seven distinct but compatible software modules that include Sportsbook, Casino, Rake Games, Fixed Odds Games, Exchange, Retail, and Marketing.
