138.com to Add Microgaming Poker to Library

Asian focused betting site 138.com has declared that it has opted to adopt Microgaming software to power its online poker section.

138 is an online betting site that is popular in Asia, offering casino, poker, and sportsbetting services to their customers. The site currently holds licenses through the Isle of Man, United Kingdom, and Philippines and has been in operation for over a decade. The operator has had an extensive marketing plan in the past, buying in on sponsorships of Watford FC in the Football League Championship, as well as sponsoring Newcastle United FC in the Barclays Premier League.

The site is owned by Xela Holdings.

The poker software will be available in both a downloadable and instant play model, while a mobile platform is also available.

Commenting on the deal Xela Holdings Head of Operations Lisa Karran said, “The MPN delivers exactly what we require, and we believe the network has a very bright future.”
