Absolute, UltimateBet Poker Sold By Tokwiro

August 28th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

A recent press released, issued by Blanca Games Inc., has shown the online poker world that the Cereus poker network has been sold. Tokwiro Enterprises has relinquished control of all Cereus Poker Network assets to the new company.

The CEREUS poker network consists of Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet, two of the largest online poker rooms available. Tokwiro had encountered scandals with both of these online poker rooms in the past, and ultimately paid restitution in order to retain licensing and satisfy the affected players.

Ultimate Bet, established in 2001, had long been one of the largest online poker rooms. With live events, such as the Aruba Poker Classic, as well as endorsements from Phil Hellmuth, 11 time WSOP winner, Ultimate Bet had become a successful enterprise.

Absolute Poker was the younger of the two online poker rooms that comprise the Cereus Poker Network. Established in 2003, Absolute Poker was the first of the major cheating scandals to hit this poker network when a player named “POTRIPPER” managed to swindle players out of over $1 million in winnings.

Blanca Games’ CEO, Stuart Gorden, has stated that they “intend to leverage the existing strengths of the Cereus Poker Network, particularly in the areas of security and customer service.”

Fans hope that AP and UB will in fact receive the much needed improvements on these two USA online poker rooms that had once given USA online gambling a bad name.

It is likely that Blanca Games will prevent any future scandals from occurring.
