Pokerstars To Offer Live Casino Games To Its CustomersPublished on March 4th, 2015 6:25 pm EST
Pokerstars, the world's largest online poker room, announced earlier today that they are now offering live casino games to many of its customers across the globe.
In a press release that was circulated earlier today, Pokerstars revealed that their deal with Evolution Gaming means that its customers will now be able to play live casino games including roulette, blackjack and baccarat. A representative from Pokerstars said that "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."
People who decide to take part in live casino action on Pokerstars will be greeted by real dealers in a Pokerstars branded studio. This studio is located in Riga, Latvia.
According to the press release, Pokerstars will be offering "Immersive Lite Roulette", which utilizes "multi-camera installations" to create a hyper-realistic "live" casino experience.
Amaya Inc., which purchased Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker last year, has been increasing Pokerstars' product offerings in order to make the online poker site a full-fledged online gaming company. This change puts the company in direct competition with the likes of William Hill and Bet365.
In addition to now offering casino and live casino games, Pokerstars has already stated their intentions to launch a sports book offering later in the first quarter of 2015.
