Rational Group brand Full Tilt Poker has launched a new variant of its fast-fold Rush Poker product, while also expanding its product range with blackjack and roulette games.
Full Tilt claims that Adrenaline Rush is Rush Poker "at its fastest", featuring a range of stake levels, with betting capped at 10 big blinds. The games are four-handed with all betting taking place pre-flop, with players only able to raise or fold on a round of wagering.
The game comes with Raise Max or Quick Fold options, meaning players either automatically go all-in, or fold and are moved to a different table, to maintain the fast pace of the game.
“Full Tilt Poker players love the thrill and excitement of fast-paced, quick-fold action, and Adrenaline Rush pushes the envelope on speed and excitement,” Full Tilt head of marketing Sarne Lightman explained.
She said the name was designed to reflect the excitement of the game, which is even faster than the original Rush Poker product, allowing users to play more hands, win more pots and compete against a wider range of players for every hour of gameplay.
Full Tilt launched Rush Poker three years ago, with a number of other poker operators and software suppliers subsequently rolling out their own versions of the fast-fold poker game in the past year, including bwin.party's Fastforward Poker, Playtech's Sprint Poker, Microgaming's Blaze Poker, PokerStars' Zoom Poker and Relax Gaming's Fast Poker.
In related news, Full Tilt has begun the roll-out of its online casino games with the test launch of free-play variants of blackjack and roulette on the download client. A Rational Group spokesman said the games had been released in select markets, and once the test period is completed, real-money variants will go live in additional territories.
"As always, we will provide the high quality player experience, integrity, security, safety and support that players have come to expect from Rational Group brands," the spokesman said.
The operator has gone live with a wide variety of blackjack variants, including European, Atlantic City and Double Deck games, as well as giving players the choice to play on multiplayer or individual tables. Roulette also comes with multiplayer tables, allowing users to communicate with one another during the game.
The expanded product range is the first stage of Rational Group’s strategy to expand the brand’s product range, a move which saw the company rebranded as Full Tilt Gaming in July 2013. At the time a company spokesperson said that while Full Tilt would expand its offering, PokerStars would continue to offer a poker-only experience.
