PokerStars announces changes to Home Games offering


The Home Games program of PokerStars is one that is popular among players due to the ability to set up games with family and friends. To boost the Home Games offering, PokerStars has now added several changes, including mobile capability as well as more variants. Customer feedback helped the online poker brand to decide to complete the series of upgrades.

New Variant Options and Mobile:

For a while now, players have asked PokerStars to allow Home Games via mobile devices. The capability is now available for most Android devices. Those who have an iOS device will find the option to play via mobile available in the next few weeks.

PokerStars also decided to add more variants so players can create even more gaming options with friends. According to cardschat.com, the brand removed the less popular formats and then added new gaming options like Showtime Holdโ€™em, Fusion, 6 card Omaha and many more.

Players can find the new variants in cash games of Home Games as well as within the tournament section. Players can easily select a variant and start a cash game or tournament by providing a code to family and friends.

Additional improvements were also made within Home Games including how organizing tournaments will take place. Users can choose from four tournament time frames which include Hyper and Slow formats.ย The Hyper section offers three-minute levels while the Slow version offers 15 minutes per level.

Teaming up with Playtech:

The news of the Home Games changes comes just a few days after PokerStars announced a new deal with Playtech. The online casino games developer is exclusively launching its new Spin & Win live dealer roulette game via the .eu and .com sites of the PokerStars brand.

The Spin & Win version of roulette is the latest title to join the multi-table games family of Playtech. The brand decided to launch the game via PokerStars as a key step within its ongoing partnership with the brand.
