Microgaming has confirmed that it is set to introduce a new range of pokers games to its online casino platform.

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.

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.

Representing a new strategic direction for Microgaming, Hold’Em Poker is a classic Texas hold’em which aims to immerse players in a realistic poker room environment, delivering an exclusive online casino experience. 

The news comes just a few months after the closure of the Microgaming Poker Network, which provided online poker players with ‘unique and entertaining’ experiences for more than 16 years.
