110713_Logo for Equity, an eGaming network_300GearPoker.com is the latest online gaming provider to join EquityPokerNetwork.com (EPN), a San Jose, Costa Rica-based cooperative network promoting a shared commitment to integrity and player security.

The addition of GearPoker to EPN is a further boost to the building momentum among recreational players looking for a friendly and safe poker environment. EPN is also earning industry credibility and cachet for its unique non-profit business model, as a growing number of operators buy into EPN’s “fairer future” promise, and its guarantee of a level playing field for all, plus more profits back for member companies.

Stability and security are emphasized for both poker room operators and players across the network, with EPN’s “Clearing House” always holding funds to cover cross-cage liabilities and payouts between EPN rooms. This layer of insurance insulates the network and the operators from the failure of a single operator in the cooperative, and with funds held separately, the network and its players are protected as well.

This system of checks and balances makes EPN the obvious network alternative for GearPoker, an online poker room that places integrity and security as its highest priority, according to a company press release. EPN and GearPoker’s shared commitment to delivering a safe and watertight online poker room to players around the world, with games that set the highest standard of fairness, security, and privacy, has been a driving force in the two businesses coming together.

“Partnering with operators that are clearly on the same page as us is important for the longevity of the network, and we’re thrilled to welcome GearPoker to EPN,” said Clive Archer, founder and CEO of EPN. “As a founding member of our cooperative, GearPoker brings an ethos of integrity and reliability with them that sits perfectly with EPN’s own goal of delivering a world-class, entertaining online poker experience to its players that they can trust, and a platform that is dedicated to increased layers of security, improved fraud detection and prevention, and setting the standard for the fastest payouts in the business.”
