Farewell to Kiwi and Prestige Poker Rooms?
February 9, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Player reports this week indicate that the Kiwi Poker and Prestige Poker websites have apparently shut down, with all players being automatically rerouted to CD Poker, also a member of the iPoker network operated by Playtech.
When InfoPowa went to press there was no indication of whether players on the two defunct sites had received communications regarding the shutdowns, but on checking the websites InfoPowa confirmed that Kiwi visitors were being routed directly to CD Poker, while the Prestige Poker site was no longer operating as a poker room.
There was no information on any of the websites regarding closures or acquisitions that might impact Kiwi and Prestige.
Speculation is that the poker rooms have been acquired by the Gibraltar-licensed CD Poker owners WHG (International) Limited or its associate WHG Trading Limited and are the subjects of a consolidation exercise, but we await a response from CD Poker to obtain accurate information.
