The MPN, formerly knnown as the Microgaming Poker Network, took some big blows last year, when many of their key partners left their poker network. Sites such as Unibet and Ladbrokes decided to go elsewhere for their poker needs and many felt that the MPN would soon die completely - They couldn’t have been more wrong.
Now the MPN announced yet another big partner who is joining their network, this time it is 138.com, the big Asian-faced bookmaker that sponsors Watford FC and who is the official betting partner of Newcastle United.
The company caters to players all over the world, but has an Asian-focus primarily. They hold licenses in the Philippines, in the UK as well as in the Isle of Man. This provides them to offer games all over the world completely legal and now they are going to offer poker to their players as well.
“Joining the MPN was a natural choice for us – we wanted a high-quality product that could be tailored to the unique needs of our customers. The MPN delivers exactly what we require, and we believe the network has a very bright future.” Lisa Karran, Head of Operations at Xela Holdings (138) said.
“I’m thrilled that yet another major brand has chosen the MPN as their poker home. The recreational-focussed strategy that we have pioneered is really starting to pay off. More and more operators are recognising the MPN as the leader of movement. I’m very pleased to welcome 138.com and I’m excited about the potential that they bring to our network.” Alex Scott, Head of Poker at MPN said.
138.com is yet another big operator to join MPN in the past few months, as both the big Georgian-faced site Adjarabet and SBOBET has joined the poker network and pushed their liquidity into the network.
