The Microgaming Poker Network, also known as MPN or Prima Poker, launched in 2003 as one of the very first online poker games available anywhere. They could’ve stopped there but it’s a good thing they didn’t. MPN also hosts its very own poker tour, they were the first online poker site to offer a points system of sorts, first to offer anonymous tables, the first to offer poker in multiple languages and they also created a mini-game called ‘Blazing Cannon’ which operates by allowing players to play in-between poker hands.
The MPN also reworked something called the Bad Beat Jackpot, where players who have high hands and still lose to another player with a higher hand, can have an opportunity to earn money. Continuing with the theme of finding innovative ways to earn their players money, they also created “Blaze Poker” which is a game where players earn more cash based on how fast they play their hand or fold.
Poker tables here run 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, every day of the year and offer multiple screen options from widescreen to fun view -which comes in handy when playing poker tournaments. Everything from bounty to free-roll to heads-up and more is offered at Microgaming.
But now for the bad news: MPN will be closing up shop in 2020. There’s no specific date set yet and it has been assured that until this happens MPN will continue to be available for all players.
In much the same way that Microgaming has shaped the world of online gaming and online poker, they haven’t exactly rested on their laurels when it comes to sports/entertainment betting. Of course, they offer wagering on football games, tennis matches, golf tournaments, and cricket matches but aside from the more well-known sports, they also offer wagering on some more offbeat sports like darts, Futsal, beach volleyball and floorball. Most companies might stop there but Microgaming tends to take things to the next level, so they even offer to wager on politics, the Oscars and music awards.
The sportsbook offers sports and special event wagering in multiple languages and currencies with real-time sports scores and stats.
Microgaming has a live casino too. With multiple versions of Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat and Live Roulette and dealers with personalities and charisma of real-life dealers you’d find at world-class casinos, Microgaming certainly hasn’t skimped here. Mr Green offers its very own Live Casino games right here if you’re tempted to place a bet on your favourite sport.
Microgaming has set the standard when it comes to online slots, not only by staying on the cutting edge of what’s popular, with 4 new slots per month debuting, but also by keeping their fingers on the pulse of what their players enjoy. Games like Mega Moolah and Treasure Nile are “oldies but goodies” that are still played by many all over the world. Let’s take a more detailed look at some of the features of the slots Microgaming has to offer.
