One Poker Room Closes But Action Continues Onscreen


Lucky Ace Poker, an 888poker network site, will close as of December 28, 2015 after having launched 7 years ago in January 2008 with a heavy focus on the German online poker market.

The poker room stopped accepting new players earlier in the month and its software became available for download only for Lucky Ace's existing customer base.

All Lucky Ace players will be shifted to the 888poker brand. In fact, if you visit the website you will be redirected to 888poker where new players are offered an $88 No Deposit Bonus upon registration.

In other news, as the familiar saying goes, 'as one door closes another opens' we say goodbye to Lucky Ace's and say hello to a brand new movie based on our favorite game, poker.

The film, Cold Deck, staring Paul Sorvino, Robert Knepper of Prison Break and Stéfano Gallo, is based on an adrenaline pumping high stakes poker game that turns sour when the host takes the game to the point of murder.

One of the actors, Stéfano Gallo co-wrote the story with Jason Lapeyre, which sees Gallo play the character of Bobby who runs into financial trouble and is guided into the heist of a bankers' high stakes poker game by his buddy Chips played by Sorvino.

Directed by Zack Bernbaum, was release in Toronto and LA on December 4, 2015. For now, the rest of us will have to wait but the trailer is available to further pique your interest.

    I guess the absorption of Lucky Ace by 888 poker might be a part of the acquistion and merger trend I have read about recently, which is happening with online casino's. With more government regulation and taxation big companies are finding that joining forces enhances their ability to make a profit. That must be true for poker sites just as much as it is for casino's. The movie sounds exciting, thanks for the info.
