“The re-brand of the network to MPN and the launch of the network website are both significant milestones for Microgaming poker. We are approaching our 10th year in operation, and we are stronger than ever before,” said head of network games Lydia Melton.
“What we have done with all these changes is build the framework for a scalable and sustainable network. Now that the framework is in place, we are more flexible, resilient and adaptable to any changes that this turbulent industry can throw our way.”
Formerly known as the Microgaming Poker Network, the MPN has picked up migrating skins, particularly from the IGT network closure.
iGame Malta, which owns and operates 24hPoker, NoiQ and Pokerihuone, completed its move; BetVictor, formerly VictorChandler, shifted alll brands; and the Paf Group is set to join fellow Nordic-facing operators Betsafe and Unibet on the network.
Most recently, Swedish operator Betsson announced that it will launch a poker offering on Microgaming. Betsafe, recently acquired by Betsson, will also follow suit.
Further arrivals are on the way. “The [Microgaming Poker Network] is in advanced discussions with a number of other major operators,” according to a statement from the company.
The Microgaming network is currently eleventh in PokerScout’s cash game rankings. However, Dan Stewart of PokerScout told PokerUpdate earlier this autumn that the addition of traffic from IGT skins could bump Microgaming into fifth spot.
