Microgaming is a reputable poker network made up of several well known rooms such as Redstar, Nordic, Betsson and Betsafe. The site has done a fantastic job of promoting itself to recreational players, and therefore, despite being a relatively popular network it is still a donkey sanctuary with soft games. The network also offers sports betting and a casino which fortunately means plenty of clueless donks spill over into poker from these areas and donate. There is good and weak cash action in NLH and PLO, and they also offer anonymous tables which bait plenty of fresh fish for your consumption. The MTT schedule is good, offering a range of stakes, with small fields and few regs. It is worth noting many of the MTTs are rebuy/add-on this really pumps up the value as many weaker players will inflate the prize pool massively by spewing off and rebuying many times. It is not uncommon for a large percent of the field to not even make it until the add-on phase, thus leaving a bunch of dead money in the pool. Microgaming also offers “Fish Party”, similar to Spin and Go on Pokerstars, they are a 3 man hyper turbo sit and go with varying prize pools and the chance to hit a big jackpot. Fish Party is buy-ins range from 1 euro to 50 euros.
