Redbet acquires Heypoker
Redbet Gaming Ltd has through an asset deal acquired Heypoker, a gaming business focused on Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. The deal includes the gaming site Heypoker.com and its customer base with approximately 37,000 registered customers. Heypoker.com offers a range of gaming services, including poker, casino and betting. Heypoker.com is part of the Ongame Network, one of the world's largest poker networks.

Redbet intends to maintain the Heypoker brand and develop the business. A number of members of the Heypoker team will continue to operate the business together with the existing Redbet organization.
The acquisition is paid partly in cash and partly with shares in Redbet Holding AB.
