By staff
Gibraltar-based Globet has launched a new online poker room on the Microgaming Poker Network at

Allegedly owned by a Uruguayan group, Globet recently switched from Chartwell Technology to the Microgaming software platform for casino operations and is targeting Central and Eastern Europe.

Globet features the latest additions to Microgaming’s poker software including a new lobby designed to get players to the right tables quickly. The latest version includes a ‘quick lobby' to provide a speedy solution for single table tournaments and an ‘advanced Lobby' for more experienced players allowing them to see many games in the same view and spend more time at a table.

'We switched to Microgaming's casino platform in June 2006 and, since then, we have been incredibly impressed with the company's comprehensive game portfolio and account management team,” said Jonathan Thomson, Head of Casino and Poker for Globet.

“When we decided to launch poker earlier this year, our experience with the company together with its proven expertise made Microgaming a natural choice for us.'

Microgaming’s platform also includes lobby menus with a ‘rabbit cam' and a ‘fold and show' feature that allows players to show lay-downs.

'We are delighted to see yet another operator add poker to their offering following a successful casino partnership with Microgaming,” said Roger Raatgever, Chief Executive Officer for Microgaming.

“Globet will benefit from Microgaming's ability to provide poker in up to 19 languages, more than any other network.'
