Microgaming Opts for Euro for Poker Tournaments

According to recent reports, online gambling software giant Microgaming
will shortly switch over from the US dollar to the European Euro as the chosen
currency of its popular Microgaming Poker Network, in order to make the
network more user-friendly for players, and allow ‘double buy-ins’.

Since the inception of online gambling many years ago, the dollar has always
been the most popular currency for players around the world. But now it seems
that as the largest online gambling firms increasingly target European countries
(as a result of the US online gambling ban), the Euro is becoming more popular.

As such, in the near future all Microgaming Poker Network guaranteed
tournaments, including multi-table tournaments, satellites and even freerolls,
will boast the Euro as the default currency. And provided players can still
access and play their favourite online poker tournaments, the changeover should
not be an issue.

In addition, Microgaming has also announced that it will launch a series of
exciting and lucrative online poker tournaments called Survivor Tournaments. The
core difference between these and regular tournaments is that as the tournament
moves to the next level, players with the smallest chip stacks are eliminated.

This means that players in Survivor Tournaments must be more aggressive in their
play and not rely on ‘slipping through the cracks’. Also, due to the nature of
the tournaments, players must be more aware of external factors such as their
position in the tournament, when the next level starts and how many players are

Said Microgaming Poker Network spokesperson, Mark Pinan, ‘The Microgaming Poker
Network is proud of this new and unique tournament offering which is designed to
provide the most entertaining network poker competitions available. We predict
that July is going to be a big month for tournament poker.’

In conjunction with its new Survivor Tournaments, Microgaming is also expected
to release Breakfast and Bedtime Bounty tournaments. The key feature of these
tournaments is that every player is assigned a personal bounty, which they are
awarded for every hand they win, making the tournament very lucrative.
