With such a massive player base, Microgaming Poker Network is one of the industry’s busier networks of this kind packed with more than thirty skins by some of the leading names when it comes to European betting. When it comes to its cash games, the network’s lobby features loads of cash tables for two, six and nine players while the majority of the overall traffic happens around the lower stakes and micro stakes games.
Due to its size, the poker network is big enough to accommodate every single poker hand and player at any time including actions at mid-stakes tables and up even during the extremely popular European weekends and evenings.
