It seems that the next big markets in the poker industry is coming from area's and markets that no one considered just a few years back. Georgian Adjarabet is currently ranked as the fourth biggest site in the world according to Pokerscout.com, only smaller than Pokerstars and iPoker, having a daily average of 10,787 players online.
Georgia wasn't considered as a big target market for many years, but with Adjarabet and Europe-Bet, it seems that the countries in the Southern part of Europe is the next big place for poker. Now a newly opened site, Igames.AM, is targeting Armenia, being fully regulated within the small country.
Igames announced today that they have successfully integrated the MPN poker network as their new poker provider, the former Microgaming Poker Network. MPN has been struggling the past year with their traffic, after big sites like Unibet and Ladbrokes left their platform for a better and more competitive one.
If Igames should be successful, it may give MPN a well needed boost to their online poker games, providing plenty of recreational players to the player-base of the network and provide other operators with a chance to boost their own player-bases.
“iGames is a promising new operator targeting a very interesting growth market. I’m very happy to be welcoming them, the first of many new operators to be joining our network in the coming months.” Head of Poker at Microgaming, Alex Scott said in a press release.
