PokerStars has launched its free-to-play Jackpot Poker app for Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices.
The new version of Jackpot Poker allows players to access PokerStars’ social gaming app using their television and via an interface designed for the Amazon platform.
The first iteration of Jackpot Poker went live in December 2015 for smartphones and tablets.
“We talked to our customers who told us that they wanted to enjoy Jackpot Poker by PokerStars on other media,” PokerStars director of social gaming Lloyd Melnick said. “With the explosive growth of television apps, this was the perfect opportunity to give our players what they want.
“As the largest online poker company, we feel it is important also to take a leadership position in the social poker space. By being the first major poker app on Amazon Fire TV devices, we can help poker players around the world find a new way to enjoy their favourite sport.”
Jackpot Poker gives away up to 1m free bonus chips every week, while players can also earn regular chip bonuses every few hours from giveaways while playing.
