PokerStars Presents Alpha Release of 'Power Up'

The massive audience that is involved in online poker must be excited about the latest innovation in their favourite game. The evolution and advancement of online poker has been a gradual and somewhat tricky enterprise that the biggest firm to offer internet poker action Amaya Gaming has been negotiating in spades. The recent announcement that Amaya’s PokerStars brand has developed a new form of poker called PokerStars Power Up. The limited Alpha release of this version of the old game has been described as being worthy of a go for all players looking for a different angle to online poker action. The focus of the development team at PokerStars is to maintain engagement with current players and reactivate a lagging player base.

The game was simply described in the post by Severin Rasset on the PokerStars blog page as a “combination of traditional enjoyable No Limit Hold'em injected with powers that give players the ability to influence how hands play out and change up game play in a variety of ways with boards, cards and chips.”

Mr. Rasset, who is Director of poker innovation and operations at PokerStars, commented, “Power Up is currently in closed Alpha, meaning that we still have a lot of adjustments to make and many more features to add. For these reasons, it’s only available to a limited number of people and real money games are still a long way off.” The director continued, “We’ll periodically expand the pool of players, while tweaking and adding features, while constantly taking feedback from the participants.”

Rasset continued to explain the direction PokerStars is headed, “More projects are in development with one common objective, to bring sustainable growth to PokerStars through exciting new products that people will discover and re-engage with and this will mean that more people will continue to enjoy the great game of poker.”
