A Boardroom Transformation - Microgaming's Network Management Board
Microgaming's Network Management Board is a game-changing management body comprised of representatives from Microgaming, qualifying operators on the Microgaming Poker Network and independent industry experts. Its primary objective is to serve the network, which it does through the development of network marketing policies and penalties, management of the development roadmap and implementation of initiatives to optimise the network ecology.
A body like the Network Management Board has never before existed in the online poker industry, and it is viewed by operators and the industry in general as the natural next step in the evolution of online poker networks. The Microgaming Poker Network is the only network that is both willing and able to lead such a step change in the industry.
The formation of the Network Management Board is a key component of a project to transform the Microgaming Poker Network into a network in which all operators work together for an improved user experience and, subsequently, increased lifetimes for all recreational players.
The transformation of the network has thus far resulted in an increase of over 15% in player values since 2010.
