The online betting group announced that negotiations ceased by “mutual agreements.”

Industry sources said the news came with little surprise as Sportingbet had been concerned by Empire Online\’s relationship with rival online poker group PartyGaming, which is now expected to put in a separate bid for its largest white label partner.

Shares of Empire Online fell as much as 20 per cent during the day.
