Microgaming is set to introduce a new range of poker games to its online casino vertical months after the closure of the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), which provided online poker players with gaming experiences for more than 16 years.
Hold’Em Poker is the first in a full suite of exclusive poker games scheduled for release by Microgaming, with follow-up titles such as Lucky Showdown set to be revealed in the coming months.
Representing a new strategic direction for Microgaming, Hold’Em Poker is a brand of classic Texas hold’em which aims to immerse players in a realistic poker room environment, delivering an exclusive online casino experience.
Offering a fresh take on an iconic poker variant, the game is a fast-paced €5 buy-in Sit & Go tournament specifically optimised for mobile, spinning in a new random prize pool wheel mechanic and introducing a progressive jackpot that seeds at €25,000.
Microgaming will debut Hold’Em Poker during an exclusive release phase with select customers on 1 December, with the game’s global launch scheduled for 9 December.
John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, commented: “Hold’Em Poker will add a new dimension to our online casino vertical, introducing a range of fun and exciting poker games to our platform. Designed to appeal to both poker and casino players, these games will deliver even further choice to our customers as we continue to diversify and innovate our content offering.”
