One could say that Everest Poker had a good year in 2008, with its World Series of Pokerfelt sponsorship pact, success of many of its sponsored players, and growth into the very top tier of the global online poker world. But as the site begins 2009, there are even more positive changes and successes in store.
First, it was recently announced that CryptoLogic partnered with GigaMedia to bring a flash casino game to the Everest Casino platform. CryptoLogic has already upgraded its software to include new tools, such as one that allows players to host their own tournaments, and another that allows the filtering of tournaments and games by players. Analysts are noting that players on sites like Everest Casino will only benefit from the restructuring process.
Secondly, Everest Poker, along with its sister company Everest Casino, added a new funds transfer option for some of their European players. DIRECTebanking is a secure payment choice that allows for instant bank transfers, and it is available for Everest members in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
Everest Poker executive Jennifer Joyce noted, “Any internet based business must look to break down barriers to entry for customers and this is particularly true in the ultra-competitive poker market. Opening up DIRECTebanking brings a trusted solution to the region and increases our access in what is one of the largest poker communities in the world.”
With Europe being home to the majority of Everest Poker players, it only makes sense to make funds transfers easier for several countries at once. And with the massive growth that poker has seen in Germany over the past few years, it only makes sense to give German players more options.
There are reasons far too numerous to name in one article to join Everest Poker. From the promotions that offer free seats into tournaments like the European Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker, to freeroll bankroll builder tournaments, to the opportunity to learn more about poker through the educational portion of the website, players the world over are discovering why Everest Poker is so trusted and respected.
