History

SlifkerGames is a games developer based out of Orlando, Florida.[1] It is run by CEO and programmer Michael Slifker.[2] As an avid poker player and poker dealer he has cashed in poker events such as the 2013 WSOP (World Series of Poker).[3][4][5][6][7][8]

The SlifkerGames logo looks like a bent Tic-Tac-Toe design. Looking at it face-on, it looks like it is being squeezed on the top on bottom so it budges out on the left and right sides.[9]
