Friday January 29,2016 : GROSVENOR CASINOS TO JOIN THE MPN

Marrying strong retail presence with growing network.

Rank Group plc’s Grosvenor Casinos business will take its poker product to the Microgaming Poker Network enabling the company to offer clients a full suite of mobile, instant play and downloadable poker products for the first time.

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.”
