PokerStars has teamed up with Evolution Gaming to bring a live dealer option to its casino game offering. Players can now chat with live dealers while playing Blackjack, Casino Hold’em, Baccarat and Roulette and watch the action unfold before their eyes, bringing a new level of engagement and excitement for casino game players.
The new live dealer games take place in a PokerStars-branded Live Casino at Evolution Gaming’s Latvian studios, the same company that runs Full Tilt’s live dealer games. PokerStars claim that the live dealer option “adds a layer of trust and accountability that inspires confidence in players making wagers, particularly at higher stakes levels.”
Sam Hobcraft, Director of Casino, said of the new feature: “Live dealer games appeal to a broad array of players who enjoy the added level of authenticity and trust that comes from seeing the action occur in the analogue world. Others simply enjoy the ability to chat and interact with the attractive dealers in a PokerStars-branded environment. 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”
These new live dealer games are the first in the industry to offer “Immersive Lite Roulette,” a fantastic new product that features multiple high-definition cameras positioned around the table that allow player to enjoy a dynamic live gaming experience.
Currently, the live dealer games are only available on the Windows-based downloadable PokerStars 7 poker client, but the wheels are already in motion to roll them out to mobile devices and Apple-powered computers in due course.
