With no press release and no notification to the media, only notes were sent to Vegas Poker 24/7 affiliates to advise that the company reached an agreement to merge with Absolute Poker.
Vegas Poker 24/7 has been a skin of Absolute Poker since its inception, but the new agreement indicates that Absolute Poker has officially purchased the smaller site and taken over the ownership. There were no reasons given for the merger and change of ownership.
Players on Vegas Poker 24/7 will have the option of keeping an existing account or transferring funds to an Absolute Poker account. Absolute Poker plans to make a formal announcement to players and the public, but affected customers have now been waiting and asking questions for nearly a week.
Besides the growth of acquiring one of its skins, Absolute Poker is working hard to regain the trust of players since the recent scandal and hopes to entice more players to earn VIP status. Absolute Poker currently offers interest-bearing accounts to players who achieve Elite VIP status.
For players who have an average daily balance greater than $1,000 – and a maximum balance of $500,000 – players earn 9% per annum interest on that daily balance.
