Ladbrokes Poker Merges with Microgaming Poker Network
February 13, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Ladbrokes Poker has announced the completion of its merge and migration to the Microgaming Poker Network this week, offering its players more action from higher player liquidity and prize pools.
The major online gambling company's previously stand-alone Internet poker site is now part of the well-established and successful Microgaming poker operation following talks last year between the two companies.
Ladbrokes spokesmen say the firm intends to offer a series of promotions for its poker players as part of the new launch, including a monthly multimillion dollar promotion involving the top 3,000 players.
For Euro tables up to and including €2 / €4, it will operate a pooled network with Unibet in No Limit Holdem. Stake levels above this rate and all other game types will be offered via the Microgaming Network.
Ladbrokes will continue to support its exclusive events and host its own tournaments in addition to the tournaments offered by Microgaming to ensure its customers have a greater variety and bigger prize pools to choose from.
Ladbrokes Poker md Edward Ihre said: "Players will notice little difference to the service — they will remain Ladbrokes customers and can still use all the Ladbrokes features including 3D poker. The benefits will be that we can offer a greater range of game types and levels as well as the availability of games in Euros for the first time.”
