PokerLoco joins the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), with one eye set firmly on extending their partnership to casino products in the near future.
If you want to play your poker on the PokerLoco skin then you had better get used to the MPN, after the Malta-licensed poker skin decided to join the likes of Betsson, 32Red, BetVictor and 188Bet at the Isle of Man-based network.
The MPN is one of a number of networks that has decided to follow the lead of Bodog Poker by creating changes to its operation in a bid to become more recreational player friendly; a move that seems to fit within the values of PokerLoco.
PokerLoco is owned by the Curacao based Loco Online Entertainment, and their Head of Poker, Manuel Lopes, is seemingly a big fan of creating a poker landscape where the recreational poker player can roam free.
“Our players will now benefit from larger tournaments, unique promotions and the player-friendly features that the MPN has become renowned for in recent years,” Lopes told Gaming Intelligence. “We’re now a part of a network that has a well-balanced poker ecosystem, where the casual player is king.”
Microgaming began launching player friendly changes back in 2013 with its ‘Achievements System’ amongst a number of changes aimed at luring more recreational players to the network.
Not long after, Unibet, decided to jump the MPN ship and create an independent poker room with, yes you’ve guessed it, a focus on the recreational poker model.
Microgaming spokesperson believes that there are many more changes to come, and are ‘proud to have PokerLoco on board, helping to shape the future that we share.”
It’s also envisaged that the partnership will also be extended to showcase casino products on the PokerLoco site.
