Everest Poker Wins Prestigious Gaming Industry Award

Tuesday, September 30, 2008 — For the second year running, Everest Gaming (formerly UIM) has wowed industry influencers with the continued success of its poker platform Everest Poker (www.everestpoker.com) and has been presented with an award for Poker Operator of the Year at the eGaming Review Industry Awards in London, UK.

The judges of the award were looking for the operator that made the most headway in the real-money poker sector during 2007/8, and Everest Poker's continued global success was demonstrated through its aggressive marketing campaigns such as Live the Dream and Avalanche, and its exclusive multi-year deal as official felt sponsor of the World Series of Poker.

With more than 11 years of online gaming experience, Everest Gaming has established a name in offering some of the most exciting and trusted multilingual gaming web sites worldwide and was the first company to launch a truly multilingual poker gaming platform in 2004, www.everestpoker.com.

Everest Poker is one of the few independent poker rooms in the industry which prides itself in owning its software and player base. The poker room's success has been built on its large European player base, with over 95% of revenue coming from Europe and a strong understanding of international poker markets.

Everest Poker is currently available in 15 languages (Danish, Dutch, English, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish), with round-the-clock local customer support in 17 languages (including Mandarin Chinese and Arabic). More than 60 percent of active real money Everest Poker players come from Southern Europe — France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
