he IPN is now European largest independent online poker network and has recently also recorded a 14 % increase in active daily players alongside a 22 % rise in maximum concurrent competitors. This was in addition to a 28 % swell in daily registrations.
Last month, Boss signed a strategic alliance with Dublin-based software developer CryptoLogic Limited to add poker licensees including ExtremePoker.com, ClassicPoker.com, Opoker.com, DTDPoker.com, BetJacks.com, InterPoker.com and ParBet.com to the IPN.
