Betsson Poker, Betsafe and NordicBet are about to switch to the iPoker network
That the popular Microgaming Network (MPN) will close its doors in may 2020 has been a decided decision for a long time. According to our sources, the three largest skins on the MPN network are now joining the iPoker network. The change has not been officially announced yet, but you can actually assume that it will be so.
It is not really a surprise and all experts have long assumed that there is actually only one option for the MPN Skins and that is definitely iPoker. For the weakening network, this is just the right thing because they are so much behind if you compare the number of players to the big names such as the GGPoker Network or the PartyPoker Network. GG and PartyPoker have almost three times more cash game players in terms of the 7-day average as of March 20, 2020. So the switch comes to the right time.
The switch to iPoker also makes sense for the Betsson Group, as the possibilities for online poker are much better than in the MPN network. Despite the great popularity in the scene, MPN has declined year after year in terms of player numbers. Especially when Unibet said goodbye to the network, things actually went downhill continuously.
Even though iPoker has lost some players over the past few years, it is still one of the leading providers in the market. Potential is definitely there and the switch of various MPN skins will do its part to get iPoker back on the right track. Maybe they can then go back to old times and compete with the big ones in the scene.
