Poker Network Review
Formerly known as Prima Poker, Microgaming is a famous network with many casinos and bookmakers, providing a steady flow of gamlers to the tables. Enjoy the fish, but beware of the sharks and select your games carefully! Traffic is decent at most levels and games. The software is fast, functional and simplistic - with all the features you need.
Microgaming has a funny mix between reasonable and highly illogical players. There are always some loose casino players hanging around, but be on the look-out for good players at medium and high stakes! Being the network with the best promotions, they attract many grinders - both sharks and fish. Mainly the shorthanded tables offer some loose action at times, but it tends to be somewhat aggresive as well. Not a particular fishy network.
If you fancy a nice, simplistic software with clean graphics and fast games, Microgaming delivers just that. The software runs splendid, with easy navigation and fast games. It includes all the features you need: Hand history, resizable tables, statistics, notes etc. The graphics are simple and non-disturbing, allowing you to focus on the game. Easy navigation and a favorite for grinders who like to multi-table.
Cash games traffic:
Cash games peak: 2.250
Cash games average: 1.160
Acceptable tournament and cash game traffic across most stakes, but it is mainly concentrated around about Texas Holdem. SNGs run frequently, but patience is needed for €20+2 SNGs and above. MTTs run frequently, with many qualifiers, freerolls and ordinary small stakes tourneys.
While not one of the greats when it comes to tournaments, tournament traffic is acceptable with about 8.000 players during peak hours. The Sit & Gos are 2-, 5- or 10-handed, but patience is often needed. Notable is the weekly €100.000 guaranteed tournament, with constant qualifiers down to €5.50. You can also win entry to big live events such as the WSOP in Las Vegas.
