Lotos Poker Joins GGNetwork

The Russian language poker room used to be one of the skins of 888. Now, they will operate under the GGNetwork: an up-and-coming poker network who have been focusing on Asia up until recently. 

Six months ago, on November 1st 888 skin Lotos Poker went offline. They are back, however, with redesigned graphics and new central promotions - but as part of th e GGNetwork from this point onwards. The website also promises the revival of casino games, but so far only the poker features are available. The website was down more than it was expected anyhow.

Lotos switching networks also means that they will operate under a license from Curacao, not Gibraltar like they used to.

GGNetwork is currently ranked 8th in cash game player traffic but growth is expected, not a decrease. The network has just started to make attempts to get a bigger share of the European market up until now they were focusing on Asia. Because of this more Asian players play on their rooms than other networks which softens up the player pool. That region did not have their online poker boom yet, therefore the skill levels of players from there is below the average.

With the acquisition of Lotos Poker they made a move to the growing Russian poker market, something partypoker also has done recently. However, their methods are hosting big live tournaments in Russia and signing Russian adn other Eastern European players as ambassadors.

Let us draw your attention to PPI Poker, another GGNetwork room which hosts a $3,000 Exclusive Rake Race for rakerace.com members. Register here to enter.
