Isle of Man-licensed gaming operator SBOBET has launched an online poker offering on Microgaming’s poker network, the MPN, available on both desktop and mobile devices.

SBOBET Poker becomes the seventh brand to launch the HTML5 mobile poker product, alongside download and instant play clients, making it available across a wide range of smartphones and tablets.

“SBOBET are a huge operator in the online gaming industry; naturally we are thrilled to be adding such a well-known name to the MPN,” Microgaming’s head of poker Alex Scott said.

“Our poker network has undergone a series of new and exciting changes in the last year and the hard work is definitely paying off as we see new operators join the network.”

The changes to the MPN include the launch of the MPN Poker Tour and new network rules to allow any language to be used at tables, using Microgaming's Babelfish translation technology.

Microgaming added that the deal reinforces MPN’s position as “one of the industry’s most progressive poker networks.”
