Finland-based online poker operator Paf has announced that it has launched an online poker service via Microgaming’s MPN network.
The launch comes after an agreement made between Paf and Microgaming in October 2012, which Paf agreed to move its online poker offering to the network. Paf said the agreement was “not a replacement for Paf’s other poker networks, Ongame and Boss Media, but a complement that will bring added value to customers.”
Paf’s new online poker offering has been branded as ‘Heart Poker’ and is the third network to use a service from the company. As previously mentioned, Paf’s poker services are hosted by two other online poker networks; Ongame (which hosts Paf’s ‘Spade Poker’ room) and Boss Media’s International Poker Network (which hosts Paf’s ‘Diamond Poker’ room).
Paf Director Anders Wiklund has described the Heart Poker service as “one puzzle piece in a bigger make-over of our poker experience for our customers”. Heart Poker will be different from the other two Paf services in that it will be a download-only offering. Players who sign up with the new service will also be able to access MPN’s fast fold poker offering, Blaze Poker, as well as real-money cash games and tournaments on the site.
Along with Paf, MPN have gathered a number of Nordic poker companies to their network in recent times, with Unibet and Betsafe also offering services to the network.
