Marrying strong retail presence with growing network.
Rank Group plc's Grosvenor Casino
business is soon to take its poker product to the Microgaming Poker Network the A-Z of Online Casinos
has learned today.
Microgaming's enthusiastic attitude and collaborative approach to managing the network was the attraction, Rory Cartwright, head of poker at Grosvenor said.
"We're looking forward to marrying our strong retail poker presence with an online network which is growing month-on-month, year-on-year."
The MPN is one of only a few poker networks to have shown annual growth in 2015, bolstered by a slew of player-friendly changes including a revision of the network rake structure, new features like alias changes, and fun promotions like the Universal Championship of Poker.
With the addition of a whole host of new operators in 2016, the MPN expects to grow even faster and to reinforce its position as the most thrilling place to play online poker.
"I'm very happy that Grosvenor Casinos has selected us as its new poker vendor," added Alex Scott, head of poker for Microgaming. "They have been fantastic to work with since day one. The addition of the Grosvenor brand to the network will help to accelerate our growth in 2016, and the synergies between our MPN Poker Tour and Grosvenor's retail presence are very exciting."
Interestingly, Grosvenor's online casino product contains a range of games from various suppliers however Microgaming is not among them despite being one of the leading casino game developers. More information on games available at Grosvenor can be found in the online casinos section
or via the casino directory
using the search facility.
It is not known at this time whether the MPN deal will lead to casino game licensing although the presence of a Playtech casino
at Grosvenor suggests not as the two suppliers tend to prefer exclusivity.
