LAS VEGAS (June 20, 2012) – Fertitta Interactive, LLC announced today that it has launched Ultimate Gaming, which will focus on real money online games, social gaming, and digital entertainment in the United States and around the globe. The first of a series of offerings from Ultimate Gaming will include Ultimate Poker, which will be launched this summer.
Fertitta Interactive was established in 2010 by Frank Fertitta III, Lorenzo Fertitta, Tom Breitling and Tim Poster, who have worked together on various projects since the early 1990s. The Fertittas were original investors in Travelscape, the online travel company that was founded by Breitling and Poster and purchased by Microsoft’s Expedia, Inc. in 2000. The founders have a unique history of nurturing and developing businesses in the casino (Station Casinos and Golden Nugget), Internet (Travelscape/Expedia), and sports/entertainment (Ultimate Fighting Championship) industries.
“With our unique ability to leverage the overlapping demographics between online gaming, traditional gaming and the worldwide sports and entertainment brand of the UFC, Ultimate Gaming is ideally positioned to rapidly capture a significant following in the United States and throughout the globe,” said Tom Breitling, Chairman of Fertitta Interactive.
Breitling added that Ultimate Gaming is fully supportive of federal legislation to regulate online poker and that the company has filed for all relevant online gaming licenses in the State of Nevada.
