PokerStars already offered its members access to popular slots games from several other suppliers, including NetEnt and Playtech, but its lack of Microgaming titles, which are some of the world’s most popular, was notable. Amaya, the company which owns PokerStars, entered into discussions with Microgaming some time ago to change that situation, and in February of this year it was announced that PokerStars would soon offer Microgaming titles via the Quickfire platform.
The successful integration to the Quickfire platform has now been completed, and this will no doubt be welcomed by PokerStars players, many of whom enjoy playing slots titles either for their own sake or as an entertaining way to pass the time whilst waiting for their poker tournaments to begin. The presence of the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot title from the outset will give players the chance to win a seven-figure fortune even before any cards have been dealt at the virtual tables, and the promise of further titles being added to the available range in the future will ensure that they have plenty more to look forward to,
‘It’s a great achievement to see Quickfire live on PokerStars,’ said Andrew Clucas, who is Director of Quickfire at Microgaming. ‘They are a renowned gaming brand with a huge player base, and we believe Microgaming content is the perfect fit for their casino customers. We will continue to work closely with PokerStars as they look to grow their games portfolio through Quickfire; this will be a long and fruitful relationship for both parties.’
The team at PokerStars is equally delighted with the development. ‘We are very pleased that our players now have access to some of the most popular games in the online casino industry, further strengthening our existing product offering,’ said Director of PokerStars Casino Operations, Bo Wänghammar. ‘This partnership, alongside bespoke games developed by PokerStars, will help provide our customers with the best online gaming experience that can’t be found elsewhere. We look forward to further expanding with Microgaming in the near future.’
