Written By Janice Doughtrey

The Microgaming Poker Network has recently announced its partnership with online gambling site, Canbet.com.

Canbet.com’s parent company, International All Sports (IAS), stated the agreement would take effect immediately. IAS was founded in 1996 and was Australia’s first licensed bookmaker. It is also one of the most recognizable names in Internet betting, offering around the clock access to betting on international horse racing, greyhound racing, world sport and entertainment events.

Following its merger with Canbet in January 2005, IAS extended its international racing and sports coverage to the UK. Together, it brought the company an opportunity to extend its product range into an online casino and poker room.

As part of the deal, Canbet.com will use Microgaming’s multi-language capability to continue targeting European players. Customers at its poker room would now have access to one of the most intense tournament schedules on the Internet, as well as the chance to win satellites to the world’s best land-based tournaments.

Founder of IAS, Mark Read, said, “The addition of Microgaming Poker Network to our range of industry-leading betting services, including our revolutionary new live soccer betting product, is a sign of our commitment to continue to provide players with the best in online wagering and gaming.”

Chief Executive Officer for Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, said, “We are delighted that Canbet.com has chosen to join the Microgaming Poker Network and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”

“We have experienced a great first half of the year, signing up significant numbers of operators and expect to see this trend continue into the second half,” he concluded.
