The Stars Group’s social casino app PokerStars Play has launched two new live poker and casino games developed by specialist provider BetGames.TV.

War of Bets and Bet on Poker are live play-money games combining betting with a live casino and feature live presenters, an enhanced user experience and optimised gameplay for mobile devices.

In War of Bets, players and the live dealer go head-to-head to see who is dealt the highest value card. In various betting rounds, the player must decide whether their card or the dealer’s card will be the highest. Additional bets can be placed on the colour, suit and value of the cards.

In Bet on Poker, the live dealer deals 12 cards, face-up, to six positions. Like Texas Hold’em, the five community cards are also dealt face up and combined with the six sets of hole cards to create the best five card combination.

The goal of the game is for players to predict and bet on which of the six positions will win. Additional bets can be placed on what the winning combination of cards may be.

“We bring our players games that make us stand out from the crowd and we think War of Bets and Bet on Poker are great additions to our ever-growing portfolio of games in PokerStars Play,” said Lloyd Melnick, director of social gaming at PokerStars.

“We are excited to bring our players a live casino experience that can be enjoyed whether they are on the go, or in the comfort of their own home.”
