The announcement brings the total number of new poker and casino operations to have joined the Microgaming portfolio in 2006 to nearly twenty, with the company expected to make further announcements later this year that will confirm its status as the Internet’s fastest growing poker network.
Ed Ware, CEO, said of the announcement, “Microgaming’s consistent track record in providing quality software for both casino and poker enables us to deliver a first class service to our customers, thus it was a natural choice for us.'
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever, also lauded the news, “We are delighted to be attracting a front rank operation such as BetDirect and fully believe this is a reflection of the success we have achieved with 32Red to date.”
Following its launch in 1998, BetDirect quickly established itself with a reputation for excellence in customer service, innovative marketing and great on-site offers and bonuses. The site now adopts a ‘single wallet’ solution, allowing players to easily access a full range of betting services, including casino, poker and sports betting, through just one account.
