Microgaming has unveiled a further expansion of its poker network, after going live with National Lottery AD within Bulgaria.

The Isle of Man-based casino software developer, which lauds its fresh agreement as a “major poker deal,” signed through Prima Networks Limited, and marks the first time that Microgaming has made its poker network available to the Bulgarian market.

After confirming its new deal, Microgaming states that the manoeuvre is in line with its strategic goal of continuing to expand its presence in a variety of key global regulated markets.

Andrew Clucas, chief operating officer at Microgaming, commented: “This marks a significant step in growing the poker network, and reflects our commitment to continued growth and expansion into regulated markets. We are delighted to work with National Lottery AD as their exclusive supplier of poker in Bulgaria.”

Enjoying a strong position within the country, National Lottery AD’s partnership with Microgaming will be the first time the Bulgarian gaming operator has introduced a bespoke online poker software solution to customers, through its site.

Via the exclusive deal, National Lottery AD’s customers can now benefit from playing on Microgaming’s new and improved poker software, detailed as “feature-rich” whilst delivering “popular, player-friendly tournaments and promotions”.

Milen Ganev, managing partner of National Lottery AD, added: “This strategic partnership enables us to continue to diversify our product offering, and to deliver entertaining and award-winning poker games to our customers. We look forward to our Bulgarian customers playing on Microgaming’s feature-rich poker solution.”

This is hot on the heels of the company upping its roulette game with the launch of a new take on the table game, developed by Switch Studios, unveiled at SiGMA.

“We believe our background in the mobile, social and online gaming sectors puts us in an excellent position to bring innovation and style to the online table gaming sector,” said Tom David, head of studio at Switch.

“Our objective is to deliver the best selection of classic table games that players enjoy.”
