The GGPoker online poker room was established in 2017 on the Isle of Man. The company is a Guinness World Record holder and a partner in the world of poker, known for its high-tech software, huge list of games and strong community.
In 2020, for the first time in history, GGPoker managed to host the World Series of the Online Poker Championship. The prize pool of the tournament reached a record $27.5 million, which no one has beaten so far. GGPoker is currently hosting large-scale poker series: WSOP, APL and Battle of Malta.
In Ukraine, the GGPoker brand will be represented by NSUS UA LLC, which has received a license to organize online poker under the domain name ggpoker.ua.
Commenting on the accession of a new member, UGC Chairman Anton Kuchukhidze mentioned:
- Today I am pleased to announce that one of the world leaders, GGPoker, has joined our ranks. It is very important that our values coincide in terms of the development of the gambling business in such areas as ensuring observance of responsible gambling principles in the field of advertising, strengthening the positive image of the gambling business as socially oriented. We also share a vision for the development of many community and non-profit initiatives in a variety of fields, from poker and sports to social projects.
Thanks to GGPoker membership, we can say that we have united representatives of 80% of the legal gambling poker industry within our Council, and we are proud of that. One of the priorities of our partnership will be mutual support of international projects both abroad and in Ukraine.
GGPoker CEO in Ukraine Serhiy Romanenko, in turn, commented on joining UGC:
- GGPoker is a world leader in its segment and a large family of poker fans. I am happy that Ukrainian players have recently been able to join our family. Of course, as a representative of a global brand, I am interested in transparent and clear rules of the market operation. At the moment, it is just being born: rules of organizers operations and control of their activity are being elaborated, forms of interaction with the state are being established, a new perception of the sphere is being formed within the society. And in these processes, which open up prospects for the market, I see the great mission of UGC.
