BetOnBet Joins Microgaming Network

26 July 2006

DOUGLAS, Isle of Man – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Microgaming, the world's largest supplier of poker and casino software, announces it has signed BetOnBet, the online betting exchange, to its Microgaming Poker Network. The announcement follows the acquisition of Ongame by BETandWIN, with the operator citing a competitive conflict as one of its main reasons for the move.

The move to Microgaming allows BetOnBet players to take advantage of one of the most aggressive tournament schedules on the web - featuring satellites to some of the best land based tournaments in the world, as well as the guaranteed 24hr action offered through access to thousands of additional players from over 40 card rooms worldwide.

Since BetOnBet launched in August 2003, with its poker offering following in November 2004, it has grown to become one of the most successful gaming sites on the web. The move to Microgaming's poker network will cause little or no disruption to players, allowing them to swiftly take advantage of the benefits the network has to offer.

Stian Hornsletten, Managing Director BetOnBet Ltd says, "We are very pleased to join the Microgaming poker network. We see Microgaming as the leading software provider within the gaming industry. The Microgaming Poker network is growing rapidly and we believe this is a strategic move for the future. We believe our customers will see the benefits of this in the time to come. To join a network where all the operators are playing by the same rules and get the releases at the same time is something we are looking very much forward to."

Roger Raatgever, CEO Microgaming comments, "Following its decision to leave Ongame, we are delighted to be able to announce that BetOnBet has joined our industry leading poker network. We believe that Microgaming can not only offer operators market leading software and support, but also the independence that clearly BetOnBet felt they could not receive following the acquisition of Ongame by BETandWIN. This follows a number of recent additions to our rapidly expanding poker network."
