We at PokerTrip know how lucky we are – we work in two of the most exciting and dynamic industries in the world (gaming and social!), and we are poised to make a huge splash in the about-to-explode online gaming industry. We’re a small, strategic group with one big claim to fame - we recently received the very first online gaming license to be a marketing affiliate, granted by the Nevada Gaming Commission. To say big things are on our horizon is like saying Apple has sold a few devices.
PokerTrip acquired and operates the two highest trafficked information and community resource sites, AllVegasPoker.com and PokerAtlas.com. We are in the midst of rapid growth including a complete renovation of our web and mobile presence, assembling an all-star team, and strapping on our seatbelts as the online gaming industry prepares for warp drive.
