India – Thrill Poker takes Microgaming Poker network to IndiaBy Phil - 1 June 2015
Thrill Poker is live with Microgaming Poker; they are the first operator to go live on the new MPN India.
Established in 2013, Thrill Poker (thrillpoker.com) is one of the foremost providers of online poker to the Indian market. Their team boasts a cumulative 45 years of experience in the online gaming and lotteries business in Europe.
Dedicated to providing a best-in-class poker offering, Thrill Poker has joined forces with Microgaming, and has migrated all of its existing traffic to the Microgaming platform.
“Online and offline poker in India is growing massively in popularity. We wanted to build an offering which was market-leading, secure, and robust in order to provide the best possible poker experience to Indian players,” said Aditya Oberoi, Director at Thrill Poker. “That’s why we chose to partner with Microgaming, the industry’s software expert.”
Thrill Poker is the first operator on the MPN India, a new, ring-fenced poker network dedicated to the Indian market and operating exclusively in Indian Rupees. A number of other operators are in the pipeline to join the network in the coming months.
“I’m very pleased that Thrill Poker has chosen Microgaming when looking to upgrade their poker product,” said Alex Scott, Head of Poker at Microgaming. “We have added another string to our bow with a poker network dedicated to India; it is a growing market and we are now well positioned to capitalise on this.”
Thrill Poker recently announced the launch of ‘Team Thrill India’, a group of India’s top rated tournament players. With the launch of Team Thrill India and their migration to the Microgaming platform, Thrill Poker aims to grow the skill game of poker in India and establish role models for the evolving poker community in the country.
It’s been a busy few months for Microgaming poker, which has announced the launch of Adjarabet, SBOBET, and 138.com recently. More new operators will be announced in the imminent future.
