In a bid to counter the rising negative publicity directed towards two of its poker sites, Absolute Poker and Utimate Bet, Tokwiro Enterprises has announced the launching of a new poker network – the Cereus Poker Network. The company hopes that Cereus will be able to enjoy the same popularity as large networks such as PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.
"Cereus not only delivers the best online poker experience," said Paul Leggett, CEO of Absolute Poke and Ultimate Bet, "it enables our company to improve our operations and deliver significantly better value and service to customers. Our company's goal is to provide poker players with the ultimate online experience. The launch of Cereus is a major step for us in achieving our goal and we look forward to making many more exciting announcements very soon."
Both sites have been wracked by insider cheating scandals, and the Kahnwake Gaming Commission has promised to take tougher steps against them.
