PokerCompany.com, one of the leading groups for online gaming marketing, has soft launched Poker.org.
After months of development, Poker.org finally makes a public appearance, albeit with a soft launch in order to sort out any turbulence on the path to a real launch.
All members of sister site Rakeback.org have been transferred automatically to Poker.org. Have no fear – all deals on Poker.org are matched or even topped. As a member of a bigger and more ambitious site, we promise you even better promotions and offers in the near future.
As a member of the Poker Club – which is what we call the Poker.org community – you have access to your own player account where you can create poker teams, add friends, post blogs, view your posted hands and much more.
Full details of the “soft launch” available on the Poker.org web site.
The domain name poker.org was sold by National A-1 for $1 million in February 2010.
According to Ron Jackson of DN Journal, the $1MM price tag is currently the highest price ever reported for a .org domain. In a story that appeared on DN Journal shortly after the transaction, Markus Sonermo – the CEO of PokerCompany.com – revealed he also paid the second highest price ever for a .org domain with BlackJack.org, which he purchased in 2007 for $298,000.
