Ongame AB is a development company in digital entertainment primarily focusing on card games online, including the brands PokerRoom, HoldemPoker, eCardRoom and EuroPoker, the company also had some development of various casino games offered on the company’s own sites such as Casino Room. Ongame’s poker products currently reach tens of millions of customers globally.
In 2005, Ekonomitidningen Veckans Affärer named Ongame AB “IT Company of the Year”. The company was founded in 1999 in Uppsala by students Oskar Hörnell and Claes Lidell. Ongame’s head office has been based in Stockholm since 2005. In 2006, Ongame was acquired by the Austrian company bwin and changed its name to bwin Games AB on October 23, 2006. In 2011, when Bwin and PartyGaming merged, the company changed its name again, to Ongame Services AB. The company was acquired by Amaya in 2011 – which after their acquisition of pokerstars – sold Ongame on to NYX Gaming Group in November 2014. We could say that this company has quite the history.
During all this time, the company’s focus stayed the same though. Ongame continues to develop table games and slot machines for casinos all over the world. Their games can be found in many online gambling websites, such as the popular Betsafe and Redbet casinos, and at smaller ones too, such as Whitebet, Wild Tornado, Loki, Nightrush and many more. Most of the slot machines they have created are inspired by historical events and figures, and this makes them more attractive and interesting. The designs, graphics and themes are pretty amazing and entertaining.
