Microgaming is set to debut a new range of poker products to its online casino vertical, as the firm asserts a commitment of supplying operators worldwide with a diverse portfolio of igaming titles.

The news comes just months after the closure of the Microgaming Poker Network, which provided online poker players with gaming experiences for more than 16 years.

Hold’Em Poker is the first in a full suite of exclusive poker games scheduled for release by Microgaming, with follow-up titles such as Lucky Showdown set to be revealed in the coming months.

Lauded as a “new strategic direction” for the company, Hold’Em Poker is a brand of classic Texas hold’em which aims to “immerse players in a realistic poker room environment, delivering an exclusive online casino experience”. 

Offering a fresh take on an iconic poker variant, Microgaming says that the game is a fast-paced €5 buy-in sit & go tournament specifically optimised for mobile, spinning in a new random prize pool wheel mechanic and introducing a progressive jackpot that seeds at an impressive €25,000.

John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, comments: “Hold’Em Poker will add a new dimension to our online casino vertical, introducing a range of fun and exciting poker games to our platform.

“Designed to appeal to both poker and casino players, these games will deliver even further choice to our customers as we continue to diversify and innovate our content offering.”

Microgaming will debut Hold’Em Poker during an exclusive release phase with select customers on December 1, with the game’s global launch scheduled for December 9.
