Read on for more information.

History

EVE Online Hold'Em was founded in the fall of 2007 by the now infamous Curzon Dax. Initially Selene D'Celeste and ChaosCow PSA assisted Curzon with the running of EOH. By December 2007 Curzon was beginning a hiatus from EVE. At this point Selene bought the service, and officially became the owner of EVE Online Hold'Em on January 1st, 2008.

Niraia was hired as a banker at the start of EOH and became a site developer in 2008. He assisted with the creation of this website: a synthesis of the Poker Mavens API, the EVE Online API, a player accounting system, and an interface for the banking staff.

Saint Stephen was hired January of 2008 as a banker. He became the staff and customer service manager.

In July 2012, Selene retired from EOH with Niraia and Saint Stephen taking over ownership.

  • EOH provided over 9 years of honest service
  • Over 20,000 EVE Online characters used EOH
  • Players bet upwards of 1 Quadrillion ISK at EOH
  • EOH served over 50 million hands of Texas Hold'Em and Omaha poker
  • EOH was the first ISK gambling website in EVE Online

Closure

CCP Games, the creators of EVE Online, updated their EULA (End User License Agreement) to forbid the operation of third party gambling services on the 8th of November 2016. To our disappointment, but in understanding of CCP's legal position, we were obliged to terminate our service prior to that date.

  • We held two free farewell poker tournaments on the November 6th with massive prizes to thank our players!
  • All player ISK has been refunded. Players were not required to submit a cashout request. We just sent their ISK back.
  • All Banker collateral was refunded.
  • Our website was switched to this farewell page, and our poker server shut down, on the 7th.
  • Our in-game channel 'EOH Poker' remains open for old players and staff to socialise.

Fly Safe

Running EOH has been a great pleasure over the years. We feel that it added something fun and exciting to the EVE Online universe we love. We are sincerely grateful for the small community we built, for everyone who took part in and supported it, and for the friendships we made which will long outlive the service.

Thank you EVE!
