NEW YORK -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Gambling.org's popular online guide catering to all things online gambling, online.Gambling.org (OGorg), has announced it is now tracking popular tournaments for online blackjack and poker players residing in regulated U.K./Euro markets.
Sharing current and upcoming tournament information through its website, Online.Gambling.org continues to expand its coverage of the online gambling industry at large, of which Internet poker is now a massive component.
Texas Hold'em poker tournaments have steadily become popular online since the 2003 World Series of Poker (WSOP) tour, in which players from around the world were permitted to compete in online satellite tournaments at established online poker rooms. Commonly referred to as the "Moneymaker Effect" (named after Chris Moneymaker, who won the first WSOP online tournament on a $39 satellite buy-in), the popularity of online poker has since risen to become a mainstream activity around the world.
Through OGorg's poker guide, at Online.Gambling.org/Poker, players will have access to the latest events being hosted at leading, regulated poker rooms. Select Poker Stars and WSOP online poker tournaments are currently being tracked, and additional sites will be added once vetted.
While online blackjack tournaments are not as popular as Texas Hold'em poker tournaments, they are becoming increasingly popular in their own right. Several U.K.-regulated and established Euro-friendly online casinos are offering online blackjack tournaments, many of which will be accessible through OGorg's Blackjack page, online.Gambling.org/Blackjack. bet365 Games is currently being tracked, and soon also will be Belle Rock Group's Jackpot City and the Fortune Lounge Group's Royal Vegas - the latter hosting an annual International Blackjack League online.
According to OGorg's Content Director, Brian Kelly, "In response to a growing demand from online gamblers seeking tournament-style casino gaming action, it became clear that we needed to give our readers more options and point them in the right direction for finding a solid selection of tournaments under one roof.
"While there are some outstanding online poker guides on the Web providing players with pertinent tournament information, their focus is strictly on poker. OGorg, on the other hand, is focused on both poker and casino games online. In addition to blackjack tournaments, we will soon be tracking slot tournaments and bingo," said Kelly.
