Microgaming's ring-fenced Indian Poker Network has added a new skin for Poker Yaar, a site owned by local gaming operator Club Empire Tech.

Pokeryaar.com is now live with Omaha, Hold'em and Five-Card poker variants, as well as Microgaming's progressive jackpot sit'n go Fish Party.

The site features a range of localised payment gateways, as well as a user interface specifically designed for the Indian market.

It joins Mercury Poker, Poker Nation and Khelplay.com on the network.

"Poker Yaar will completely revolutionise the skilled gaming sector in India," Club Empire commercial director Aman Shahpuri said. "With state of the art technology and a customised product for the Indian market, we aim to take poker mainstream and give an entertainment platform to our target audience.

"We want to be the number one online poker platform in India and working with Microgaming and their world-class poker product puts us in the best possible position to achieve this."

Microgaming director of network games, Jean-Luc Ferriere, added: "It is fantastic to welcome yet another dynamic, young brand to our Indian Poker Network.

"We've made significant progress with the network, particularly in product and operations through 2017, and 2018 only promises even bigger and better things. We are extremely positive about the prospects of this important segment."
