pokerstars home games

Many have tried and many have failed, but PokerStars has joined the world of webcam poker with a launch of a version of webcam poker on the PokerStars.com and PokerStars.eu platforms.

Originally revealed by Poker Industry Pro, the new product has been introduced as part of PokerStars Home Games. The platform allows players to start their own poker club with a group of players to play private games with no need for playing cards uk.

PokerStars Home Casino Games has grown in popularity over the last couple of years during the coronavirus pandemic by providing a platform to allow friends to play against each other without physically being in the same room. In an era of closed poker rooms and safety protocols, Home Games brings more of the social aspect back to online poker. Although private tables had excited before, Home Games makes it easier than ever to create, organize and join these tables.

The introduction of webcams to PokerStars Home Pages aims to further increase the engagement level of the games and enhance the experience for players to give them a more personal experience.

PokerStars webcam poker is available exclusively through Home Games through the web version of the software. However, should the initial trial launch go smoothly, the feature could be added to other jurisdictions, platforms and other games during 2022.

Although the viewing of webcams will be available on Home Games, players will still be able to control their privacy by having the ability to turn off the camera for their own video as well as others. Microphones may also be muted.

With PokerStars Home Games players are able to set up a private club to play cash games and tournaments, in both real money and play money tables, against other players. Club managers can invite anybody that they wish to be part of the club.

After a club is created, you will be able to set up a tournament and cash games to your choosing, complete with full customization options such as start date/time, game, currency, buy-in, format, speed, breaks/no breaks, payout, blind intervals and starting chips.

Clubs can set up to provide members with a Club schedule, results, member list and even standings that show top players in the Club.

In an additional sign that PokerStars is putting additional investment into Home Games, recent features have been added including changes to the design, a dark-mode and the easier creation of new games in Home Games.

Webcam poker has its day

After years of poker rooms with webcams lacking any real traction, the use of webcams has been more widely accepted and adopted of late, especially over the last couple of years.

Once the pandemic started, players began to think of creative ways that they could play poker with their friends. Some players have used Facetime and other apps while playing with people they know so it only makes sense that a major poker room like PokerStars would finally jump on board to add the capability within the software.

And chances are if PokerStars is joining the fray, other online poker rooms will soon be sure to follow.
