Title:MicroGaming isn't responsible8 out of 23 readers found this review helpful
I'm reading a lot of negative reviews about MicroGaming. Not because of the software, but because a few pokerrooms/casinos went under and MicroGaming didn't pay off the debts.

OF COURSE THEY DIDN'T! MicroGaming supplies the software. Nothing more. If some crooked company then uses this software and goes bankrupt, that doesn't mean MicroGaming is responsible. That's like saying MicroSoft is responsible when a PC-store goes bankrupt. Or saying that Apple is responsible when a music company goes bankrupt that offers it's music on iTunes.

Title:Best software online5 out of 15 readers found this review helpful
For me, Prima has the best software online, better than P*, FTP and Party. But that's just my opinion. Cash outs are quite fast. You can find there plenty of fish.

The only thing I don't like here is the massive amount of short stacks, you have to open 50 BB min tables. They also introduced Anonymous tables recently, where you can't see players' screenname and therefore you can't use your HUD and notes, which sucks IMO.

Title:2.2? Lets be serious6 out of 20 readers found this review helpful
I am not sure how people can judge a site based on the bad fortunes of one or 2 Operators.

Yes, Eurolinx had issues with withdrawals and some players may have lost their balances. However, the Microgaming Network is home to some other very large, and very safe Operators. Anybody heard of Unibet or Ladbrokes? or Doyle Brunson and his poker room (yes they have since left, but only because MGS deicided to pull out of the US)

I think their software is amoungst the best in the online world, if not the best. The lobby is easy to navigate, and there is always a cash game or tournament at the stakes I am looking to play.

Downtime is kept to a minimun, and is usually always scheduled, with fair notice being given to all players. While I cannot comment on the support for all the Operators who make up the Network, the room I play at provides assitance which is 2nd to none.

2.2? Do me a favour? give an MGS Operator a try.

Title:Good but not great4 out of 15 readers found this review helpful
I play sometimes on GNUF. Sit n go's mainly.

Players skills are average.
Traffic is average (honest, but not great)

But the software: too big, too heavy, not very user friendly... Too much "information" on it, which spoils the ease of use.

And there is no rakeback deal.

Bonus is classic. Not easy to clear, but not very difficult.

In brief:
Not bad... but not great either. Nothing that will make your eyes sparkle.

Title:I love it.1 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
Stick to reputable skins ie ladbrookes /unibet/32red,
Money will be 100% safe and play probablty the best site on the net.
The only site where there are some real fish left swimming,
Probably due to a high UK and scandinavian player pool and we all know how they
like to consume vast amounts of beer and play poker on the weekend and weekdays for some!
There are some very skillfull players here for sure but poker is about profit not ego.

You can run up 10 BI stacks here at the table at times.
Compared to stars full of nits bumhunters and downright scum and an rng that goes beyond variance to downright theft this is a refreshing change.

Bad points is tourny schedule very poor bar the 100/500k GTD but as a cash player
this does not apply to much.Traffic does seem low at times but can always find games.

Rakeback at 30% std on most skins only the higher tiers of stars VIP pay this and thats if you keep your VIP level.This rakback can be cashed immediatly on some skins.

There are concerns with smaller skins and what looks like table capping/liquidity for some,but i stick to the big guns and am now a regular enjoying the grind again.

Title:Like any other poker site I´ve played on5 out of 19 readers found this review helpful
I have been playing on over 5 diffrent Microgaming skins and I absolutley love it sometimes. If you ask me, no one can get better then Pokerstars with all the traffic on cash-games an tournaments but Microgaming is a place I log on to and think aaaawww...home... I basically dont play so many tourneys but the game is so wicked most of the times. If you sit down on tight 6 seated table all you need is 1h until somebody else tilts. I love it.

What happened to Eurolinx was that a greedy boss "on Eurolinx" cleaned the bank and rode out of dodge. You cant blame the Network for that one. Tournaments that frozen is also the skins responsibility so that´s what you as a player should go directly to. I have been getting back a few buy ins but all around I also won a 100K guaranteed tourney and that made my beleive on them raise a big gap as well.

8 out off 10 is my vote.

Title:new traffic0 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
MPN is back with adjarabet. Traffic is up to 10.000 people in primetime, this moment about 8000. Still pokerscout scaled this skin at #12 but i think it has to move up to the top 5 now with this traffic. Last year the traffic was around 4000 in primetime, so i hope this leads to new players for the future. The best and most fair site for me as a recreative player.
