Isle of Man-based gaming solutions provider Microgaming will be able to offer customers a more realistic poker experience after acquiring the rights to three-dimensional software from video games developer Playwize.
Microgaming is one of the world’s largest providers of online gaming software and stated that the acquisition further qualifies its position as a leader in delivering high quality, innovative and interactive experiences to both operators and players.
'Microgaming is committed to delivering the latest innovation in gaming software to provide players with advanced gaming experiences,” said Roger Raatgever, Chief Executive Officer for Microgaming.
“We are well known for our ability to stay ahead of the competition by providing our operators with the latest thinking, technology and game features. The Playwize acquisition brings advanced three-dimensional functionality to our poker portfolio, which will be enjoyed by thousands of players worldwide.'
The immersive three-dimensional environment offered by the poker software from Playwize puts players in the middle of the action and provides them with the ability to interact with opponents. Using the software, players can customise their online appearance in order to match their own personality while trying their hand at hundreds of different possible game combinations including Texas hold'em and Omaha alongside five and seven-card stud.
The software also gives players exclusive tools to help them raise their game including a complete poker tutorial that goes over everything from the basics to the more advanced techniques used by the professionals. In addition, it features a practice game mode where players can get 'as-they-play' advice on every move.
