Betfair, which recently launched on the iPoker Network, has begun moving its existing players to the new network, but will complete the entire process only by July 2013.

Betfair is currently running on iPoker as well as Ongame Network, and existing players can choose to play on any one of these networks. The company says that this is to provide them “a varied, feature-rich poker playing experience on the two leading poker networks.” By July 2013, however, Betfair will cease running on Ongame Network and will be available only on the iPoker Network.

The online gambling company has been hinting from September that it would migrate to iPoker, which is owned by Playtech, the prominent supplier of online gambling solutions.

Speaking about the move, Betfair Head Matt Mowlam said, “Our relationship with Playtech already extends to our Casino and other gaming products so we’re no strangers to each other. We’ve long been aware of the quality of their network and I think they appreciate the value that adding Betfair to their Poker portfolio brings. We’re always looking to ensure that we’re offering our customers the best possible poker experience and we therefore constantly monitor the performance and popularity of the major network providers. We’ll continue doing that in the future and wouldn’t be doing our jobs properly if we didn’t.”

Mowlam also told PokerNews that Betfair will be assigned the top tier of the iPoker Network, where it will share space with top online poker skins such as Bet365, Paddy Power Poker, Titan Poker, Poker 770, Everest Poker, Winner Poker, and William Hill Poker.

Mowlam said, “With Betfair’s large recreational player base, it is both a logical and beneficial move for us to join a network with a comparable player base. We aim to work in conjunction with Playtech to ensure that through a combination of player segregation and product development we are able to nurture our recreational players so that they are able to enjoy the best playing experience possible. We’re also going to be offering some unique promotions and we’re always confident that our customer service and community feel can make us stand out.”

Mowlam also said that Betfair will launch several lucrative and unique promotions after migrating to iPoker. Existing players can try winning their share of a $30k prize pool by taking part in several free multi-table tournaments. Besides, they can also form part of a promotion called $2k Bankroll Kick Starter Bonus.
