MPN Adds Another

Tuesday, 19 May 2015

Online casino and sportsbook operator has become the later operator to open a poker room with MPN (formerly the Microgaming Poker Network).

A big player in Asia, has become a familiar name to football fans in the UK following its shirt sponsorship deal with newly promoted Watford. It's also an official betting partner of Newcastle United. The MPN deal is its first foray into the world of poker where it is promising players around the globe a 'uniquely Asian experience'.

“Joining the MPN was a natural choice for us – we wanted a high-quality product that could be tailored to the unique needs of our customers,” adds Lisa Karran, Head of Operations at Xela Holdings. “The MPN delivers exactly what we require, and we believe the network has a very bright future.”

The new poker offering is currently available in download and instant-play formats. A mobile client is expected in the near future.

“I’m thrilled that yet another major brand has chosen the MPN as their poker home. The recreational-focused strategy that we have pioneered is really starting to pay off,” said Alex Scott, Head of Poker at Microgaming. “More and more operators are recognising the MPN as the leader of this movement. I’m very pleased to welcome 138 and I’m excited about the potential that they bring to our network.”

The MPN recently agreed similar deals with AdjaraBet and SBOBET.
