ISLE OF MAN, 16 October 2012 – Åland-based operator PAF are the latest to sign a deal with Microgaming, the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, which will see them join the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) in the near future.
Founded in 1966, PAF is a unique gaming operator in that it was set up by a group of charitable organisations and donates all of its profit to good causes on the Åland Islands. The jurisdiction’s branches of Save the Children and Red Cross are beneficiaries, along with numerous other local causes.
PAF poker players can look forward to joining a network with a healthy ecology thanks to Microgaming’s special True Value allocation method and a development focus that is friendly to recreational players.
Anders Wiklund, Director of PAF, comments: “We’re thrilled to have signed an agreement with such a well-established poker network. The long-term vision and security of a network is of the utmost importance to our players, and we are sure that the Microgaming Poker Network will deliver on this front. Their product combined with a strong support for our strategy execution made our choice very easy. We look forward to working with them into the future.”
Lydia Melton, Head of Network Games at Microgaming, adds: “It’s great news that PAF has chosen to join the Microgaming Poker Network. The technological and managerial advances we have made with the MPN over the last year make it the natural choice for operators, and we are confident that the MPN will meet all of PAF’s requirements. We’re delighted to have such a unique operator on board, and very much look forward to working with them.”
The MPN is in advanced discussions with a number of other major operators looking to join the Microgaming Poker Network. This follows on from news that BetVictor has recently gone live with the MPN and iGame Malta is to follow in the coming weeks.
