ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming, the world’s largest provider of online casino and poker software, announces that the world renowned online poker site, Doyle’s Room (doylesroom.com) has officially joined its rapidly expanding poker network. The move will allow Doyle’s Room to expand into European markets and is seen as yet more evidence of the continued success of the rapidly growing Microgaming Poker Network.
Doyle’s Room launched in 2004 and since that time has cemented itself as one of the world’s most popular online gaming sites. As well as offering one of the largest tournament selections in the industry, it also draws players to its extremely popular Bounty tournaments, a series of weekly tournaments in which players vie to win prizes by knocking out the bounty players. Players looking to sign up can expect to meet and play the likes of Mike Caro, Todd Brunson and the great man himself, as well as a host of other professional and celebrity faces.
Doyle Brunson or “Texas Dolly” as he is affectionately known is one of the world’s most celebrated poker players, accumulating a record ten World Series of Poker bracelets and winning back to back world championships during his career. He is widely acknowledged to be the Godfather of poker, the game’s most recognizable face and he still plays at the highest limits in the biggest games in the world.
The move to the Microgaming Poker Network will provide Doyle’s Room with even greater liquidity and access to one of the most aggressive tournament schedules on the web, offering players the chance to enter a wealth of satellites to some of the world’s biggest offline tournaments. In the last week of February alone $400k worth of buy-ins were won on the network.
Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming says, ”It doesn’t get much bigger than this – signing up the ‘king’ of poker to the Microgaming Poker Network, so as you can imagine we view this as a real coup. The Microgaming Poker Network has been enjoying a period of exceptional growth and deals like this only point to this trend continuing.”
A spokesperson for Doyle’s Room said, “We are delighted to be joining the Microgaming network. We reviewed many software providers in our search for a better gaming experience for our players and Microgaming met all of our requirements in terms of liquidity, tournaments and player features. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them”
Since Microgaming developed the first true online casino software over a decade ago, it has led the industry in providing innovative, reliable gaming solutions. Thanks to an unrivalled R&D programme, that averages four new releases a month and an unmatched ‘partnership’ approach to working with operators, Microgaming can be found powering many of the world’s most profitable online casino sites.
The Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network is the world’s largest progressive and has paid out a record $225m plus in the last four years.
Microgaming software also powers the world’s leading poker network. With over 40 card rooms and one of the most aggressive tournament schedules on the web, the Microgaming Poker Network ensures players will always find an active table, as well as the hottest action.
As a founding member of eCOGRA, Microgaming is at the forefront of an initiative focused on setting the highest standards in the gaming industry, most notably in the areas of fair gaming, responsible operator conduct and player protection.
