It has been announced that PKR has signed a deal with Microgaming.
Best known for its 3D poker software and community, PKR will join forces with the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN), relaunch its Casino brand and create a new Vegas slots brand which’ll feature the latest Microgaming games.
PKR becomes the first operator to join the Microgaming Poker Network while retaining its signature software. This is a move made possible by Microgaming’s Babelfish API technology, which launched in January 2015.
PKR CEO, Chris Welch said of the agreement: “The opportunity to connect our unique 3D poker software to a popular network and enjoy the best of both worlds means we can dream bigger once again.”
He added: “With our software and community allied to Microgaming’s advanced products, poker liquidity and proven track record, this is the perfect match.”
Utilising Microgaming’s casino software, PKR Casino will get a revamp with instant-play browser games, a desktop download and native iOS and Android apps.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented: “We’re incredibly proud to have signed PKR on an exclusive basis for both poker and casino. When we launched Babelfish in 2014 we felt it was something special; we’re now seeing the fruits of our labour with PKR able to join the growing MPN whilst retaining its unique software. 2016 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Microgaming and the MPN.”
