This story was published more than 12 years ago.

Microgaming Poker Network has announced a software upgrade for its popular gambling site. The upgrades include a new bonus tool for operators and players, usability updates, and other changes based on player feedback.

“At Microgaming we are constantly innovating and looking for ways to enhance our Poker product. The new features and functionality have been developed from listening to operator and player feedback and we are confident that the new software version will lead to an enhanced user experience.” said Lydia Melton, Head of Network Games for Microgaming.

Changes that were made to the poker room per player requests include larger cards, changing from 10 to 9 seat cash game tables, bet slider improvements, and a player's MTT schedule addition.

The release was put online by Unibet in late August, but some of the system upgrades will not be included until all Micogaming Poker Network partners are issued the software, which is expected to be in October.

Usability options added to the upgrade include Auto buy in for players at tables, a multi-table launcher, and Bad Beat Jackpot optimization.

A bonus tool has also been added to the software, and includes the standard pending bonus, immediate bonus, both of which are supported by back office tools. Player bonus progress can also be tracked through the lobby and in the bonus webpage, which is built in.

Daniel Eskola, Head of Poker at Unibet commented on the release, saying “At Unibet, we are all very excited about this update, which brings in new functionality for ourselves and our players as well as improvements on old classics. This release demonstrates Microgaming’s commitment to on-going software development and responsiveness to player and operator requests.”
