Just a bit over 6 months after announcing the completion of the Amaya and PokerStars acquisition of 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of privately held Oldford Group Limited (“Oldford Group”), to the parent company of Isle of Man-headquartered Rational Group Ltd. (“Rational Group”), the owner and operator of the PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker brands, in an all-cash transaction completed purchase with a price tag of $4.9 billion dollars, launches a global online casino called Poker Stars Casino.
Players on the dot-com, dot-eu, and dot-uk versions PokerStars can now use their PokerStars 7 client to play blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and casino hold’em games against live dealers.
“Live dealer games appeal to a broad array of players who enjoy the added level of authenticity and trust that comes from seeing the action occur in the analogue world,” the Director of Casino at PokerStars Sam Hobcraft said. “Players will enjoy the convenience of playing poker, casino, and live casino games in the same place, with the same protection of player funds, the same fast payment processing, and the same trust that they have come to expect from PokerStars.”
PokerStars-branded live casino is the first in the world to offer the Immersive Lite Roulette, an innovative product created by Evolution Gaming. For more visit PokerNews updates on our favorite poker news site.
