    Default PartyGaming Suing Former Owner of Empire

    The claim amount is reportedly in the "six figure" range.

    Default What comes around goes around?

    If my memory serves me correctly there was some pretty shoddy treatment of affiliates by Party when this acquisition went through...

    Thumbs down

    Interesting that the purchase was for $38m and they're claiming only a "six figure" sum (less than $1m) back ??

    But PartyGaing are pretty crappy at running sites they take over - they bought out a quality sportsbook in Gamebookers a few years ago, insisted on pasting branding for partypoker, partybets and such all over it and generally killed the old brand.

    Gamebookers is a pale shadow of it's former self .... I'm sure that's another underperforming purchase too ... but the blame should be put squarely on the PartyGaming people for that one.
