Press release from: SkatMedia

The successful cooperation of online Skat and tournament organization is approved for seven years now. "It was the 4th of November 2000 when we offered the first Skat tournament online through the platform skat-online.com", reports Thomas Steffen from skat-turniere.de. The web portal skat.com was already two years online those days, but mainly frequented by the users due to the extensive information about Skat and the free of charge online Skat game. To determin a Skat Player´s strength was nearly impossible as the three Skat players were more or less placed to their virtual Skat table by computer.
„We developed a concept, to bring the real life feeling of a Skat tournament on our online platform. A tournament administration program allows to place the participants on defined tables. The players are accompanied by the tournament organizer during all series“, says Markus Riehl, chief software developer. Online Skat clubs hosted by Skat-Online gain profit of it today. They can use the tournament administration program for get-togethers or club mastership.
The number of registered tournament players was ever-growing during the last seven years. Especially the continuation of series after technical problems, an improvement in version 6 of the Skat-Online software, attrackted many more to participate in the virtual tournament hall. The huge number of tournament players with different skills arise the fascination at www.skat-online.com.
