Microgaming Skins Still Operating – Last Updated December 2018

During it’s peak times when it was still open to players in the United States, the Microgaming network had seemingly endless numbers of skins. However, after it left the US market, it lost a large number of their big partners including a large number of US friendly sportsbook operators. More recently it has lost two of it’s biggest partners – Ladbrokes and Unibet who have both chosen to leave MPN for pastures new.

The network is now made up of less than 30 different sites, all of which are listed in the table below. My rankings are based on a number of factors. These include safety and security, speed and reliability of cashouts, reputation in the industry, customer support and overall levels of trust associated with the company. Sites I have marked as n/a are ones where I have not played yet, though I am in the process of signing up and playing there. A small selection of others are restricted to specific countries, with ring-fenced player pools. I’m based elsewhere in Europe, so unfortunately cannot provide an accurate review or rating of those sites at this moment in time.

* Pokerihuone are part of the iGame group who own 24hPoker. They are very safe, but target Finnish players specifically.
** Adjarabet is a Georgian site. Like Win2day, they use MPN software but the player pool is different.

A Network with Many Intertwined Sites and Connections to Casino Operators

To most people the above table may seem to be a long list on unconnected sites. However, many of these sites are closely related to each other or are owned by the same company. For example, the Bettson Group own Betsson, Nordic Bet and Trio Bet.

PokerRewards and GoldenTigerPoker are both owned by the Rewards Casino Group.

Poker Time are part of the Fortune Casino Group who previously ran RoyalVegas Poker.

Similarly, Betway and GNUF are related to the Wagershare casino group who previously operated Spin Palace Poker.

Last but not least, Cool Hand Poker are part of the Referback Group who also run a large number of online casinos. If you know of any more relationships between MPN skins, fire me an email via the contact us page.
