Virtual poker experiences arrive just in time for the holiday season

PokerStars’ latest innovation, PokerStars VR, is now available to download and play for free in all of PokerStars’ global markets. The eagerly anticipated official launch of the game follows on from a well-received closed beta test which saw more than 150 invitees play and test it using Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. PokerStars VR is available to download through the Oculus and Viveport stores, as well as through Steam.

Players worldwide can now experience what happens when the worlds of live and online poker collide from the comfort of their own home. PokerStars VR was developed in collaboration with virtual reality developer Lucky VR and provides the perfect mix of serious gameplay, fun interactivity and social engagement that adds a whole new poker realm for players and gamers to explore.

Players have the chance to become fully immersed in a variety of social poker scenes, choosing their own environment to play in such as Macau 2050, The Macau Suite, The Showdown Saloon, Monte-Carlo Yacht, and The Void. Using intuitive controls for easy gameplay, they can also handle chips and cards, and pick up on tells, talk and interact just as they would at a live table. The game also features a host of interactive props to have fun with, voice command, and integrated Twitch broadcasting and media streaming on Oculus Rift for those who wish to play and stream.

WORLD CLASS VR EXPERIENCE

“When we showcased the product it was amazing to see people really enjoy and become engrossed in the game,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at PokerStars. “We wanted to venture into the world of virtual reality because we believe it is an exciting avenue of technology to explore and something that our players would appreciate. I highly recommend that everyone tries out the game as it can only truly be understood and enjoyed by experiencing it.”

The new game simulates the live poker experience as closely as possible, bringing the same subtleties and interactions to an online environment. A lot of work has gone into recreating the atmosphere of a live poker game, including features such as chip stacking, card-peeking and the ability to try to get a genuine read on opponents, giving bluffing a whole new dimension.

Players can explore how tells work in PokerStars VR, as well as other lessons and insights, at PokerStars School and PokerStars Blog.

A new take on traditional cascading games, Fruit Bat Crazy allows players to build delicious combinations before smashing them in a single, seriously succulent splat.  In Fruit Bat Crazy, clusters of low-paying symbols always pop first, and symbols collapse on a combo-by-combo basis – so small wins will trigger their own cascades before big wins are calculated, increasing the chances of a deluge of delicious fruit.

Yggdrasil‘s latest casino slots gem, Dwarf Mine, tasks players to dig deep to discover hidden treasure and potentially massive wins. Throughout the game players are accompanied by a determined dwarf digger who uses his tunnelling machine to uncover underground valuables. His work is made simpler by drill-shaped Bonus symbols, which expand the reel set by revealing additional rows of symbols. Hitting three Bonus symbols during a single spin grows the reel set from 5×4 to 5×7 symbols and starts a Free Spins round with the enlarged reel set.
