Rational Group brand PokerStars has officially launched its latest poker client PokerStars 7 following a period of beta testing.

All players on the operator’s shared liquidity and platform will be upgraded over the course of the month, though players will still have the option to choose to play using the PokerStars 6 client.

PokerStars 7 was first made available to players as an upgrade in August this year, with more than 120,000 users already using the software to play.

The new client includes a range of updated features such as an improved main lobby interface with filters to help people select their preferred tables. PokerStars 7 also features an interactive geographical map of live events and a completely redesigned tournament lobby with a dynamic chip graph that helps keep track of player performance.

PokerStars head of communications Lee Jones commented that he was delighted to see PokerStars 7 come out of beta and become the site’s default software.

“I have been using PS7 since it first peeked out of the development shop and it’s a joy to use,” Jones said.

“Like all good software, this product has been through the wringer before we’ve made it the default for our customers,” Jones continued. “That means that all the unusual configurations and settings have been tested – when you fire up PS7 you’ll be running on a solid, well-tested piece of software.”
