Other Microgaming Sites
Microgaming is probably the network most commonly associated with rakeback. With more than 45 full fledged partners, it is also the biggest poker network of sites on the market today.
As far as the software is concerned, all you need to know is that Microgaming are indeed the best. Stability and functionality cannot be a problem in a Microgaming poker room; however, graphics-wise the software could've been flashier. The bottom line is though that if you play online poker for the same reason I do (to win money that is) you'll get over it, no problem.
The software has been massively overhauled in recent years, and they've incorporated a game-in-a-game called the Blazing Cannon, which was the first such move on the part of an online poke network. MPN were the first to introduce Anonymous tables to protect their recreational players. Among a bunch of other things, MPN also offer a fully integrated achievements system.
At the end of the day, there's nothing really that the Microgaming software is weak at. Being one of the most respected names in the gambling industry, they are at the forefront of the anti-fraud battle. MPN poker rooms come equipped with client server encryption and various Fraud Control Systems.
Since player collusion is the only truly serious issue, poker rooms are confronted with nowadays; Microgaming has developed software meant to make collusion detection easy. It tracks every single hand that is played in a MPN poker room and analyses the moves players make, in real time. Whenever the suspicion of collusion arises, hand histories from players involved are pulled from the archives and they're analyzed by human experts.
Whoever is found guilty of fraud will immediately suffer the consequences. In the Microgaming Network, many of the partner-rooms are operations spun off from online casinos or sports books. What does this mean to you? Well, a steady trickle of sports-bettors and casino gamblers turned poker players for one thing. Because of the size of the network, there will never be a shortage of players and fish.
The MPN support system used to be Achilles' heel in the whole Microgaming Network setup, however, that problem has been addressed. Microgaming are indeed involved in a plethora of other operations besides poker, so the sorting out of issues may still take a tad longer than usual at one of their rooms.
Many of the Microgaming member rooms are European-oriented. With the problems concerning American players, it's a natural step they've taken. Some of these rooms have tables where you can chat in other languages as well, not only in English, which is a welcome addition for those who do not speak English.
To sum things up: the Microgaming-powered MPN offers a quality gaming experience in a variety of poker rooms and with a very large variety of different promotions and tournaments. Diversity is the key concept here, and in that respect, Microgaming is sure to deliver much more than your average poker network.
