Inter Poker, one of the oldest online poker rooms in existence, has announced that their migration from the IPN (Boss Network) to the OnGame Network is now complete. The loss of Inter Poker is just the latest development that has seen IPN/Boss decline from one of the top online poker networks in the world to the point that many in the poker industry are now questioning the network’s survival.
Inter Poker’s website also underwent a bit of a makeover, with visitors now welcomed by a “Back and Better than Ever” welcome message, as well as a streamlined homepage.
While the name Inter Poker may not register with newer online poker players and the loss may not seem like a big deal, Inter Poker has a solid player base thanks to the site’s run in the online poker world which now measures over a decade. For those of us who have been ensconced in the world of online since its earliest days the name Inter Poker brings back fond memories, as the former flagship site of the Cryptologic Network was part of every poker player’s regular rotation thanks to their monthly reload bonuses and unbelievably soft games.

The power of being first was definitely on display at Cryptologic poker rooms, considering the software was shoddy at best, but most players were willing to overlook this just so they could play in the juicy games –Limit Holdem and PLO games were especially soft at Inter Poker during the poker boom. However, after the passage of UIGEA Cryptologic and its sites left the US market and soon found themselves struggling to stay afloat; eventually leading to the merger with Boss Media to form the International Poker Network (IPN).
Now Inter Poker will be making a second go of their online poker room. OnGame traffic averages about 600 real-money cash-game players according to pokerscout.com, while IPN manages an average of 250 real-money cash-game players. Of course with higher traffic comes stiffer competition from other skins on the network. Inter Poker will now have to compete against well-known names like BetFair and not against Virgin Poker and Red-Bet for players.
OnGame hasn’t exactly had an easy go of it in the wake of UIGEA and Black Friday either. The network’s parent company bwin merged with Party Poker in recent years which made OnGame’s poker network the odd-man-out as it simply couldn’t compete numbers-wise with Party Poker. Bwin.party eventually sold OnGame (sans bwin players who were migrated to Party Poker) to Amaya Gaming who is now soldiering on with the OnGame brand.
