est known for its 3D poker software and close knit community, PKR will not only join forces with the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), but also relaunch its Casino brand and create a new Vegas slots brand, both using the latest Microgaming games.
PKR becomes the first operator to join the Microgaming Poker Network while retaining its signature software, a move made possible by Microgaming’s revolutionary Babelfish API technology, which launched in January 2015.
“The opportunity to connect our unique 3D poker software to a popular network and enjoy the best of both worlds means we can dream bigger once again,” said PKR CEO, Chris Welch.
“With our software and community allied to Microgaming’s advanced products, poker liquidity and proven track record, this is the perfect match.”
Utilizing Microgaming’s unrivaled casino software, PKR Casino will get a revamp with instant-play browser games, a desktop download and native iOS and Android apps. The newly created PKR Vegas - instant-play, html5 and flash games available in browser – takes the UK operator in a bold new direction.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to have signed PKR on an exclusive basis for both poker and casino. When we launched Babelfish in 2014 we felt it was something special; we’re now seeing the fruits of our labour with PKR able to join the growing MPN whilst retaining its unique software. 2016 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Microgaming and the MPN.”
PKR's migration is anticipated to take place later this month.
