The popular Microgaming poker and casino network is signing up Malta-based Apuestas.com, a company that launched with the Spanish poker market in mind but the English speaking sector is now also in its sights.
Apuestas.com claims to be the first multi-game entertainment platform entirely dedicated to a Spanish audience with all aspects of the service tailored to the needs of the Spaniards. It says it will take advantage of Microgaming's multi-language capabilities by enabling its players to gain instant access to one of the most popular tournament listings online where over $1,000,000 a week is guaranteed in tournament prizes.
The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, said:
"It's great to be able to welcome Apuestas to our network and we look forward to a very strong working partnership together. The Microgaming Poker Network continues to go from strength to strength, partly due to our ability to deliver instant liquidity and one of the most aggressive tournament schedules on the web, but also because we are able to deliver the highest level of back-end support to any front-end approach. This announcement is a good case in point, since our sophisticated multi-language software was a key factor in Apuestas decision to make this switch."
The Managing Director of Apuestas.com, Jonas Delin, said:
"Poker will prove an increasingly important part of our product mix as online gaming in Spain continues to grow. After an extensive review of poker software we feel that we made the right choice to go with Microgaming as they met our key requirements; localisation capabilities, side games and integrated casino as well as an aggressive tournament schedule and high liquidity."
Microgaming currently powers over 40 online poker rooms enabling those rooms to provide players with many active tables at all hours of the day and is a founding member of eCOGRA, an organisation assuring players of fair gaming, responsible operator conduct and player protection.
