The Microgaming Poker Network is preparing to overhaul their online poker software, dishing out a new product known as Prima that will bring a new look as well as a slew of different features.
The platform will be integrated and released to several operators that use the MPN and will integrate high definition table modes, schematics showing profit and loss, loyalty systems, available bonuses and various player achievements. The lobby will also be simplified, making it easier for players to find the table and game that they want to play.
Microgaming's current poker client is dated, having been in existence for 17 years, which has led to security and privacy concerns. Furthermore, the platform lacks in regards of features and presentation compared to its competition, making a move necessary.
In an interview with poker site Pokerfuse Microgaming Head of Product Alex Scott said, "We haven't done something innovative for a long time-something genuinely innovative. I think the last thing that I would put in that category would be Fish Party". We were first to market with that. But really, we've not had a strong track record of innovation in the last couple of years. I want that to change."
"The only way we're really going to do that is if we're developing as efficiently as we can. This new client lets us do that. Instead of building things twice, programming in two different languages and frameworks, we can do it once."
The new platform is going live today and will feature mobile and desktop compatibility.
