Amaya's PokerStars continues to expand the reach of its Jackpot Poker social product, with the title now live on Valve Corporation's Steam online gaming platform.

The roll-out of Jackpot Poker for Steam marks the first time the app is made available for desktop play, having previously been launched for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and the Asia-facing Playphone.

"We are so pleased that players will now be able to experience and enjoy what Jackpot Poker has to offer via their desktops," said PokerStars director of social gaming Lloyd Melnick.

"Having the game on Steam allows us to reach a whole new audience who will enjoy playing the game just as much as our mobile players."

First launched in December 2015, Jackpot Poker offers a range of social casino games including PokerStars' Spin and Go tournaments alongside Texas Hold’Em and Omaha poker. It also offers a range of free-to-play slots, including content from Imperus Technologies' Akamon Entertainment subsidiary.

The app allows players to climb leaderboards by competing against one another, also earning in-game trophies as they play.

Jackpot Poker also features the likeness of a number of players from Team PokerStars, including Liv Boeree.

Boeree described Jackpot Poker as offering players "a real poker experience and the chance to enhance their poker skills in an exciting, interactive environment. "It's fantastic that Jackpot Poker can now be enjoyed by a new group of players," she said.
