Poker Stars has launched a new social poker game, PokerStars Play for the residents of Australia and the United States which will now provide the players an option of playing online poker again.
Poker players from these countries were not able to enjoy the game of poker as only a few states of the US offered real money online poker and it was completely banned in Australia.
But, now with the app of the PokerStars play, poker enthusiasts of these countries can enjoy the game without risking even a single cent.
The app launched by the Stars Group is feature-rich where the players can play Texas Hold'em cash games, Spin & Go Tournaments, Omaha cash games and try different other variants of the game.
Lloyd Melnick, Director of Social Gaming at PokerStars said, "The PokerStars Play is different product, it takes the best real money gaming and combines it with the features that a user expects from mobile games."
"We take great pride in launching PokerStars Play as it gives the players an opportunity to play with and against the poker leaders. The features of the app is built using the ideas used in building Jackpot Poker , which is probably the best social poker in the market," he added.
Players can compete against real poker players and collect trophies for bragging rights in the various weekly leaderboards using PokerStars Play. As the app doesn't involve any real money, the game is completely legal in Australia and the US.
The users of the US and Australia can download the PokerStars Play from iOS and Android-powered devices and the Stars Group plans to launch this app in several other countries in coming months.
