Online casino, Globet, is pleased to announce the launch of its very own online poker room on the Microgaming Poker Network at

Globet casino recently switched from Chartwell Technology to the Microgaming software platform for its casino operations and is targeting the Central and Eastern European markets.

The new poker site will showcase the latest additions to Microgaming’s poker software including a new lobby which will get players to the right tables a lot faster.

There will be a “quick lobby” which will provide players with a speedy solution for single table tournaments, and an “advanced lobby” for more experience players, giving them the opportunity to see many games in the same view and spend more time at a table.

Head of Casino and Poker for Globet, Jonathan Thomson, said, “We switched to Microgaming’s casino platform in June 2006 and, since then, we have been incredibly impressed with the company’s comprehensive game portfolio and account management team.”

“When we decided to launch poker earlier this year, our experience with the company together with its proven expertise made Microgaming a natural choice for us,” he added.

The Microgaming platform also includes lobby menus with a “rabbit cam” and a “fold and show” feature which allows players to show lay-downs.

Chief Executive Officer for Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, said, “We are delighted to see yet another operator add poker to their offering following a successful casino partnership with Microgaming.”

“Globet will benefit from Microgaming’s ability to provide poker in up to 19 languages, more than any other network,” he concluded.
