Launched in early November 2013, the Equity Poker Network is a relatively new network labeled as a ‘non-profit’. The network is considered a cooperative and supports the poker rooms taking only a monthly fee for operations instead of earning a profit from each online poker room. With the EPN, the growth of the online poker rooms is encouraged rather than working to build profits for the network.
There are several rooms operating EPN and each room is in charge of tournaments and loyalty programs. Most networks create on type of loyalty scheme or tournament schedule in which the online poker rooms must follow but this is not the case with EPN.
The Equity Poker Network is owned and operated by the Equity Marketing Management B.V. and has a headquarters and server location in curacao. The software of the network is provided by Playsafe Holding and players will find the standard gaming offerings such as Hold’em and Omaha with varying stake limits. The network also offers uncommon poker gaming options such as Big2 Poker, Pan and Chinese Poker.
