Latest poker software innovations featured in new poker room

Gibraltar based Globet has enhanced its online casino operations with the launch of a new poker room on the Microgaming Poker Network.

Believed owned by a Uruguayan group, Globet changed from Chartwell Technology to the Microgaming software platform for its casino operations earlier this year and is targeted primarily at Central and Eastern Europe.

Globet enjoys the benefit of the latest innovations to the Microgaming poker software, with a new lobby designed to get players to the right tables faster. The latest iteration includes a 'Quick lobby', which provides a speedy solution for Single Table Tournaments and an 'Advanced Lobby', which allows experienced players to see all games in the same view, enabling them to spend more time at the table.

Other useful options within the lobby menus include 'Rabbit cam' and 'Keep folded cards visible' that helps intermediate players understand the odds better, plus 'Fold and Show' that allows players to show lay-downs.

Jonathan Thomson, Head of Casino and Poker, Globet says, "We switched to Microgaming's casino platform in June 2006 and since then we have been incredibly impressed with the company's comprehensive game portfolio and account management team. When we decided to launch poker earlier this year our experience with the company together with its proven expertise, made Microgaming a natural choice for us."

Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming says, "We are delighted to see yet another operator add poker to their offering following a successful casino partnership with Microgaming. Globet will benefit from Microgaming's ability to provide poker in up to 19 languages, more than any other network."
