February 13, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Ladbrokes Poker has announced the completion of its merge and migration to the Microgaming Poker Network this week, offering its players more action from higher player liquidity and prize pools.

The major online gambling company’s previously stand-alone Internet
poker site is now part of the well-established and successful
Microgaming poker operation following talks last year between the two
companies.      

Ladbrokes spokesmen say the firm intends to offer a series of
promotions for its poker players as part of the new launch, including a
monthly multimillion dollar promotion involving the top 3,000 players.  

For Euro tables up to and including €2 / €4, it will operate a pooled
network with Unibet in No Limit Holdem. Stake levels above this rate
and all other game types will be offered via the Microgaming Network.

Ladbrokes will continue to support its exclusive events and host its
own tournaments in addition to the tournaments offered by Microgaming
to ensure its customers have a greater variety and bigger prize pools
to choose from.

Ladbrokes Poker md, Edward Ihre, said: “Players will notice little
difference to the service — they will remain Ladbrokes customers and
can still use all the Ladbrokes features including 3D poker. The
benefits will be that we can offer a greater range of game types and
levels as well as the availability of games in Euros for the first
time.”
