Bwin.party sells poker website

Gaming hybrid Bwin.party has agreed to sell Ongame, its business-to-business online poker network, to US rival Shuffle Master for a maximum of €29.5m. The digital entertainment business has been trying to offload Ongame since June as part of a strategy to divest peripheral parts of the business since Bwin and Partygaming’s merger. Shuffle Master will pay an initial €19.5m, with a €10m top-up.
