Microgaming and PKR Team Up for Online Gambling

Microgaming is one of the foremost producers of online gambling software in the industry. Microgaming Software Systems Ltd is a privately held Isle of Man based software development company which claims to have released the first genuine online casino in 1994. Microgaming has  created more than 800 unique casino games, including over 1,200 variations. Publishing a mix of licensed and proprietary content, the massive portfolio is kept on the leading edge by releasing new products every month.

A recent announcement has revealed that PKR an Alderney U.K. based website that allows users to play poker in a virtual reality setting has chosen Microgaming as the exclusive supplier of its casino and poker offerings. The PKR site uses 3D graphics and player character animation during poker play. Characters during the games can be custom made to incorporate body language, expressions, chip tricks and poker indications to make the game more realistic in a virtual context.

PKR will join with the Microgaming Poker Network  and utilize Microgaming games to re launch PKR’s casino brand and create a new Vegas slots brand. Using Microgaming’s Babelfish API technology recently launched PKR will become the first operator to join the MPN while maintaining its original software.

PKR Chief Executive Officer Chris Welch commented, “With our software and community allied to Microgaming’s advanced products, poker liquidity and proven track record, this is the perfect match,”  “The newly created PKR Vegas - instant-play, HTML5 and Flash games available in browser – takes the UK operator in a bold new direction.”

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented,  “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.” The migration of the PKR platform is expected to come soon.
