Isle of Man-based gaming supplier Microgaming has launched a new title based on the popular Jackpot Sit & Go concept, as it continues to invest in its poker product.

Fish Party Sit & Go (SNG) combines the game of poker with Microgaming’s experience in online slots and progressive jackpots.

The game is a fast-paced, three-player No Limit Hold’em tournament. At the beginning of each game the slot reels, which are based on the Fish Party online slot, spin, with the tournament prize pool decided by the outcome of that spin.

Fish Party SNGs have a progressive jackpot which increases with every game played, so theoretically there is no limit to how much can be won, the supplier explained.

Microgaming’s head of poker, Alex Scott, believes that the company has created the best version of the Jackpot Sit & Go concept.

“The progressive jackpot enables us to offer bigger prizes than any other provider at a smaller cost to the player, and the link with a popular established slot gives poker rooms amazing opportunities for cross-sell,” said Scott.

“But above all, I believe we have created the most thrilling version of the game the industry has seen – and this is all down to Microgaming’s expertise in creating the most exciting slot games in the industry. Today is a big day for the MPN; we are incredibly excited that Fish Party SNGs are now live.”

The launch of Fish Party SNGs follows on from Adjarabet’s successful launch of its own version of the product, powered by Microgaming’s Babelfish API.

Adjarabet’s Spin Poker product launched last month, while another Microgaming client PKR similarly uses the Babelfish API to connect its unique 3D software to the MPN and launched Jackpot SNGs earlier this month.

It is the latest in a line of innovations from Microgaming’s MPN team, including poker variant Blazing Cannon and Babelfish, and comes as the supplier looks to invest over €10m in its poker vertical this year to further develop the network.

Fish Party SNGs are now available on the Windows platform and will soon be supported on mobile and Mac devices.
