PartyGaming recovering from UIGEA

A recent announcement from the company had reported the substantial impact of its departure from the US, as its poker income reached a low of $637,000 per day. However, the group has seen a steady recovery in generating over $25 million in revenues over the last four weeks, with an average of $721,000 per day.

Garber stated via a conference call that the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act had been "a blow to our business for sure" before revealing his pleasure at the group's recovery. In terms of the company's future outlook, he declared, 'PartyGaming is no longer a poker-led, US-dependent and one language gaming operator. We are rapidly becoming a multi-lingual and multi-currency non-U.S. company.'

PartyGaming's strategic future would seem to lie very much within mergers and acquisition with the group actively looking for opportunities. Garber added, 'We will continue to pursue deals that are accretive and can add either management or product expertise to any of our operational lines, and we will be pushing further into new territories as a main and key objective of M & A, and in our organic business plan.'

"In the short term, I am going to treat my family and friends to a great Christmas and new year, pay off my mortgage and then take a well deserved holiday sometime in the new year. However, I haven't decided where I'll go to on holiday yet, I am torn between about three or four places. Although, winning such a large amount of money, I'll be able to visit them all at some point."

"I have been playing carribean poker online for two years. I learnt to play poker when I was twelve years old and have been playing both online and offline since then."

The player had been playing online casinos for two years before he won the £159,535 lifestyle changing jackpot.

A group of bingo halls in Louisville, USA and the Kentucky Charitable Gaming Association have filed a lawsuit claiming the state's new smoking ban is unconstitutional.
