Web3 Poker with a social twist
New details about PokerGO Play have been recently announced in a press release. Richard Blankenship, Chief Revenue Officer of PokerGO, conveyed that the team had built a “superior social poker game that players everywhere will love.”
The gameplay mechanics capture the essence of traditional poker while incorporating modern tech features. Players receive daily chip allotments, which can be further augmented. Plus, by accumulating chips from tables and tournaments, players can secure entries into a daily sweepstakes drawing, with prizes offered in $GALA tokens.
How do NFTs fit into the Poker table?
NFTs play a pivotal role, enabling players to own ‘Frames’ and ‘Avatars’ that go beyond just aesthetics. These NFTs provide gameplay benefits, such as increased starting chips and bonuses from select pots.
Gala Games founder Eric Schiermeyer emphasized the immersion of this setup, noting that players will “soon realize the heightened entertainment that comes with playing poker in an immersive Web3 environment.”
By fusing advanced Web3 elements with top-notch poker mechanics, PokerGO Play ensures an unparalleled gaming experience. Users can not only elevate their in-game avatars but can also redeem tangible real-world prizes.
Sponsored by professional players
Adding star power to this venture, world-famous poker professional Maria Ho has come on board as the inaugural PokerGO Play ambassador. She will not only endorse the game’s launch but will also feature as a playable avatar alongside other celebrity personalities.
Special events on the horizon
The partnership’s depth extends beyond the game. PokerGO Play will serve as a premier sponsor for PokerGO, gaining prime advertising spots across the company’s expansive content spectrum. This includes iconic events such as the World Series of Poker and the PokerGO Tour. Additionally, special events are on the horizon at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, further enriching the gaming community’s experience.
Founded as the world’s premier poker content producer, PokerGO delivers unparalleled poker events globally. Beyond live events like the Super High Roller Bowl and PokerGO Cup, its content library boasts of in-depth analysis, interviews, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the riveting world of poker.
