Mansion88 and 5050Poker Join Microgaming Poker Network

Online gaming software provider Microgaming has announced the addition of two more sites to its poker network, with both Asian-facing and Malta-based joining the Microgaming Poker Network.

"We listened to and acted on their demands and set about investigating a move to a software partner that would enable us to realise our ambitions for growth.

Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming said: "We are delighted to be welcoming Mansion88 and 5050Poker to the Microgaming Poker Network and look forward to expanding our world class poker offering. Our ability to provide poker in more languages than any other network is crucial in helping our operators grow, and our partnership will enable both operators to cement their position as leading brands within their respective markets.”
