Just a couple months after announcing the addition of Georgian operator Adjarabet, MPN (formerly Microgaming Poker Network) announced that the Isle of Man- and Philippines-licensed SBOBET had gone live on the network.
SBOBET joins Betsson, BetVictor, Betway, Paf, Stan James and 32Red on MPN, although the SBOBETpoker.com offering is currently only available in Indonesia and Malaysia (the English-language home page still shows a ‘coming soon’ notice). SBOBET is also the seventh operator to launch the MPN’s HTML5-based mobile poker product.
Microgaming’s head of poker Alex Scott said his firm was “thrilled to be adding such a well-known name to the MPN.” Scott said the signing of such a “huge operator” as SBOBET was a reflection of all the hard work the company has done to beef up the MPN brand over the past year, including the launch of the new MPN Poker Tour.
Not to be outdone, the Isle of Man-based Microgaming recently unveiled five new slots titles for the month of May. The titles are getting a simultaneous release on Wednesday via download, Flash and HTML5, as well as native apps for Android and iOS. Microgaming’s Head of Casino Games Mike Hebden said there was “something that will suit everyone” in the bevy of new releases.
The games include the aquatic-themed Ariana, the release of which is accompanied by a promotion that could send one lucky player on a €6k excursion to Dubai. Then there’s the kitchen-focused Big Chef, which introduces a brand new Rising Wilds™ element, which creates “an upward trail of wilds.” There’s also the mythology-themed River of Riches, jungle jaunt Adventure Palace and Penguin Splash, in which the flightless fowl enter a high-diving contest. Just no one alert Greenpeace or the SPCA, okay?
