Microgaming’s poker expert Alex Scott gave fans a taste of MPN’s new poker client in his blog this week, revealing that the company has moved away from C++.
“The first release of our new client is a Minimal Viable Product (MVP). We’ve made some educated guesses about what was important and what adds value,” Scott wrote. “This has meant we’ve dropped some features that might be controversial – like chat, the tournament lobby, and the Bad Beat Jackpot.
“Upon release, we’ll measure the success or failure of the new client very carefully, and adapt our roadmap to ensure that we deliver what is important to players, with a healthy amount of innovation mixed in.
“All-in-all, the new Prima client represents a new beginning for Microgaming poker. It doesn’t have every bell and whistle, or every possible feature. But we have solid, modern foundations on which to build, and the pace of development and innovation is about to increase significantly as a result of all the hard work we have put into ‘doing things smarter’.
“While other poker providers struggle with the same legacy issues we have been battling for years, we are finally leaving them behind. We are throwing off the shackles of the past. We feel liberated, and excited, and can’t wait to see what you think.”
