Best Microgaming room to play? Choose a top deal

The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) is one of the oldest on the market with over 15 years of experience, and during this time it has gone through a lot of changes, including a rebranding (originally it was called Prima). Recently our site added a new MPN skin — PCF Poker. Therefore, we decided to use this fact to create a guide to choosing the best MPN deal in 2019 according to your needs.

Best Microgaming room to play? Choose a top deal

Microgaming Poker Network overview

For almost two years, MPN has been in the TOP-20 of most significant online poker networks in terms of traffic. Before that, the network was among the TOP-10, and although we could write a dedicated post about the subject, we can sum it up by listing the main problems the network faced recently:

  • In 2016, MPN was a TOP-10 network according to PokerScout, mainly because of the addition of two well-known poker rooms — PKR and RedKings. But sadly for the network, PKR closed its doors in 2016 and RedKings did the same thing just a few months ago
  • It's not a secret that in recent years, there has led to a sharp fall in the poker traffic.

But in spite of that, MPN has managed to survive to offer an excellent product for players and even continues holding a yearly live event — MPN Poker Tour.

The MPN parent company focuses on developing software for online casinos, and the poker client is a flagship for the brand: the support has continued despite the current difficult situation. This can be evidenced by the recent launching of an all-new client — Prima.

Right now, Microgaming is composed of skins dedicated to attracting players from Europe, Latin America, Russia, the United Kingdom, among others. All the skins share the player's pool, and almost all the games are played in 6-max NLH tables:

Stakes Tables
NL10 Up to 20
NL20 Up to 10-15
NL50 Up to 10-15
NL100 Up to 5-7
NL200 Up to 3-5
NL400-600 2-3
NL1K 1-2

Omaha is not that popular, the traffic is only regular up to NL50, although a few tables (no more than 5) can be found during the peak time at PLO1k.

Poker rooms comparisons: RedStar, PCF Poker, Guts Poker

First Deposit Bonus

In all the three poker rooms, the first deposit bonus gives 20% rakeback, but the conditions are different for each one:

Room FDB Wagering time Payments
Redstar 200% up to $2000 60 days 10% of the bonus amount
Guts Fixed to €1,000 60 days €5 for every €25 paid in rake
PCF Fixed to €1,000 30 days €20 for every €100 paid in rake

Rakeback deal

Worldpokerdeals guarantees a fixed 30% rakeback at each poker room.

Additional bonuses

Guts Poker offers a rake chase which gives from 10% to 18% additional rakeback, with prizes starting for making about €100 in rake per month. Also, every three months, players can request a reload bonus up to €2,000, which can be taken as another first deposit bonus.

RedStar runs a special lottery every month, but this promotion is more focused on attracting recreational players (which is good news for regs of course). A daily ticket is awarded for playing 250 hands, and the prizes go from $5 to $100, reload bonuses or some gadget.

Other MPN rooms features

UK-friendly: at the moment, only Guts Poker has a UK license, making it a great option for British players;

Spanish support: only PCF offers website and customer support in Spanish;
VPN: RedStar Poker has commented that "VPN's are not prohibited in the room."

Commissions: The biggest minus of RedStar is a withdrawal fee of 1,5% to Skrill and Neteller and 2,5% for USD and EUR cards.

Shortly, PCF Poker will add private tables which will be inaccessible from other rooms of the Microgaming network, plus we are in close contact with the PCF owners.


Considering that Worldpokerdeals guarantees top-rakeback in all the MPN rooms, it's not easy to create a general ranking of the skins, but we can conclude:

Best MPN skin for regular players Best MPN skin for UK residents

Best MPN skin for players living in restricted markets

PCF Poker

Guts Poker

RedStar Poker
