Thrill Poker, one of the leading poker sites in India, began their online adventure in 2013, but started offering gambling more than 40 years ago in India. Now the site will be the first site to launch on the new MPN India poker network, after partnering up with Microgaming.
“Online and offline poker in India is growing massively in popularity. We wanted to build an offering which was market-leading, secure, and robust in order to provide the best possible poker experience to Indian players. That’s why we chose to partner with Microgaming, the industry’s software expert.” said Aditya Oberoi, Director at Thrill Poker.
The MPN India poker network will be a ring-fenced poker network, where only operators on that particular network will have access to the Indian market. While Thrill Poker is the first site to start on the network, more sites are currently in the talks of joining the network and increase the liquidity.
“I’m very pleased that Thrill Poker has chosen Microgaming when looking to upgrade their poker product,” said Alex Scott, Head of Poker at Microgaming. “We have added another string to our bow with a poker network dedicated to India; it is a growing market and we are now well positioned to capitalise on this.”
Thrill Poker aims to make the people of India understand that poker is a game of skill and not just luck and launched their own “Team Thrill India” when they went live on MPN India. The team consists of some of the best poker tournament players in India and it is believed that they can help attract new players to the network.
