Finnish gambling monopoly Alands Penningautomatforening (PAF) intends to create ‘an enhanced poker experience’ after inking a deal with online gaming software provider Microgaming.
One of the largest online gambling operators for the Scandinavian market PAF stated that the agreement, which will see it join the Microgaming Poker Network early next year, has been designed as a ‘complement’ to bring ‘added value’ to its customers and not as a replacement for current deals it holds with Ongame Network Limited and Boss Media AB.“Playing poker at PAF should feel like playing among friends,” said Anders Wiklund, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for PAF. “In the beginning of next year, the poker site at PAF.com will be renewed. Playing will become easier and the feeling of playing among friends stronger. We will modify the surroundings to also accommodate those who are not that familiar with poker."“We are very satisfied to initiate collaborative efforts with Microgaming, which is a strong and broad network,” said Wiklund.“We believe that the collaboration will be profitable for PAF as a company and bring our customers added value in the form of an enhanced gaming experience.”Isle of Man-based Microgaming described the deal as ‘great news’ and adding that it was ‘very much looking forward’ to working with ‘such a unique operator’.“The technological and managerial advances we have made with the Microgaming Poker Network over the last year makes it the natural choice for operators and we are confident that the Microgaming Poker Network will meet all of PAF’s requirements,” said Lydia Melton, Network Games Head for Microgaming.
