LONDON, UK, April 12 /CNW/ - Microgaming, the world's largest provider of
online casino and poker software, announces that the world renowned online
poker site, Doyle's Room (www.doylesroom.com) has officially joined its
rapidly expanding poker network. The move will allow Doyle's Room to expand
into European markets and is seen as yet more evidence of the continued
success of the rapidly growing Microgaming Poker Network.
Doyle's Room launched in 2004 and since that time has cemented itself as
one of the world's most popular online gaming sites. As well as offering one
of the largest tournament selections in the industry, it also draws players to
its extremely popular Bounty tournaments, a series of weekly tournaments in
which players vie to win prizes by knocking out the bounty players.
Players looking to sign up can expect to meet and play the likes of Mike
Caro, Todd Brunson and the great man himself, as well as a host of other
professional and celebrity faces.
Doyle Brunson or "Texas Dolly" as he is affectionately known is one of
the world's most celebrated poker players, accumulating a record ten World
Series of Poker bracelets and winning back to back world championships during
his career. He is widely acknowledged to be the Godfather of poker, the game's
most recognizable face and he still plays at the highest limits in the biggest
games in the world.
The move to the Microgaming Poker Network will provide Doyle's Room with
even greater liquidity and access to one of the most aggressive tournament
schedules on the web, offering players the chance to enter a wealth of
satellites to some of the world's biggest offline tournaments. In the last
week of February alone $400k worth of buy-ins were won on the network.
Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming says, "It doesn't get much bigger than
this - signing up the 'king' of poker to the Microgaming Poker Network, so as
you can imagine we view this as a real coup."
A spokesperson for Doyle's Room said, "We are delighted to be joining the
Microgaming network. We reviewed many software providers in our search for a
better gaming experience for our players and Microgaming met all of our
requirements in terms of liquidity, tournaments and player features. We look
forward to a long and successful partnership with them"
