Microgaming Consolidates Brands

Microgaming, the worlds largest provider of online gaming software, is to bring its industry leading Jackpot Madness and The Prima Network under the single Microgaming brand, it is announced today.

The resulting change will mean that Microgaming Poker Network and Microgaming Progressive Network will replace the old names and that a new Powered by Microgaming seal will appear on all the sites which use the companys software.

Both the Jackpot Madness and Prima Network brands will be phased out by late summer to give players a period to adjust to the changes. Both of these websites will be integrated into a new website. In the case of The Prima Network the company will no longer run Monte Carlo Millions; however the company is looking at a number of exciting new marketing opportunities.

The move further signals Microgamings industry-leading position and will serve to simplify all future communication. By focusing on one single brand, the company believes it can create greater impact in a consolidating market and that ultimately, the Microgaming badge will give players added confidence in an operators ability to deliver fair, intuitive, involving play.

The company is also reaffirming its commitment to ever richer game playing experiences - with constantly evolving software using cutting edge technology, together with fraud control and transparency innovations. There is a programme of 60 new game releases in 2006.

Microgamings CEO Roger Raatgever says. We have led the industry for over a decade during which time separate brand names have served us brilliantly and helped our operators attract millions of new players to online gaming. Now we are entering a new stage of growth and we believe that by making these changes we are ready for this new era.

Microgaming launched the first fully operational online casino over a decade ago. It was the forerunner of such games as Cash Splash, the internets first wide area progressive jackpot, launched in 1998. The company now powers 120 casinos and has developed more than 300 casino games. It has also developed games in eleven languages and the software to support six major currencies. With links to hundreds of developers, Microgaming powers over 40 poker rooms on its network and the progressive jackpot casino payout total now exceeds $199m.
