Microgaming to axe poker network in 2020

By Owain Flanders

Microgaming has announced it will close its poker network next year after an internal review of the supplier’s product portfolio and strategy.

Players will still have access to online tournaments, promotions and cash games prior to the network closure.

Beginning as Prima Poker in 2003, the poker network now consists of almost 30 different poker rooms, most of which share the same tables and tournaments.

John Coleman, CEO of Microgaming, said: "The network model no longer fits with our strategic vision for poker, and this is the right time to announce the closure as we focus on redistributing key resources and personnel across the business.

"While the network will be closing, this is not the end for poker at Microgaming.

“Ultimately, this move will help the business as we follow a new strategic direction for the vertical, details of which will be revealed in due course.”
