Paf creates unique poker experience with new partner
The Åland-based gaming company Paf has signed a contract with Microgaming, the world's leading supplier of online gaming products. The aim is to create an enhanced poker experience for Paf's customers.
- Playing poker at Paf should feel like playing among friends, says Anders Wiklund, head of Paf.com.
For Paf, the new collaboration with Microgaming is a leap into the direction of creating a unique poker experience for customers.
- In the beginning of next year, the poker site at Paf.com will be renewed. Playing will become easier and the feeling of playing among friends stronger. We will modify the surroundings to also accommodate those who are not that familiar with poker, says Anders Wiklund, Director of Paf.com, the Paf online gaming site.
Paf is continually looking to develop its collaboration with suppliers in order to live up to the company strategy - play among friends. The contract with Microgaming is not a replacement for Paf's other poker networks, Ongame and Boss Media, but a complement that will bring added value to customers.
- We are very satisfied to initiate collaborative efforts with Microgaming, which is a strong and broad network. We believe that the collaboration will be profitable for Paf as a company and bring our customers added value in the form of an enhanced gaming experience, Anders Wiklund asserts.
At Microgaming, the collaboration is also welcomed with enthusiasm:
- It’s great news that Paf has chosen to join the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN). The technological and managerial advances we have made with the MPN over the last year make it the natural choice for operators, and we are confident that the MPN will meet all of Paf’s requirements. We’re delighted to have such a unique operator on board, and very much look forward to working with them, says Lydia Melton, Head of Network Games at Microgaming.
