      Austria to Get Online Poker Site via Svenska Spel and Boss Media

      The CEO of Svenska Spel, Jesper Karrbrink, has confirmed earlier reports (click here) that Austria is the country that will launch the next state-controlled online poker site, in cooperation with Svenska Spel and Boss Media.

      Karrbrink said that Austria had chosen to follow the Swedish example of offering its citizens a safe environment in which to play online poker, under the same conditions of responsible gaming and player protection enforced by Svenska Spel.

      The site is expected to go live in early 2008.

      While Mr. Karrbrink stopped short of naming the operator, Gaming Intelligence Group confirmed that the online poker site will be offered by Osterreichische Lotterien through their online gaming site, as many had previously speculated.

      The launch of a new governmental online poker site should be seen as a positive development for the online gaming industry as a whole, reports Gaming Intelligence Group, as the game of poker takes one step further in becoming recognised as a challenging game of skill and a mainstream pastime.

      The governmental launch should also help introduce the game to Austrian citizens who may not have otherwise played poker online, as has been the case in Sweden.
