Sportsbook.com's (their poker room is Play Aces) company has been around for a while as one of the earliest Internet sports betting books. It was only fitting that they add poker to their services. They use World Gaming software for their sportsbook and casino, but chose to go with the Merge Gaming Network for their poker room. One of the reasons is because it was a new poker site with high expectations and some great software to boot!
