PokerStars debuts latest poker innovation

12 October 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars once again seeks to refresh the classic game with its latest release, Power Up Poker.

This no-limit Hold'em variation features three players facing off against each other in a futuristic setting where nothing is as it seems.

Players begin with the same number of chips and will be dealt two cards on each hand. The twist comes with two randomly selected powers, like clone, intel, disintegrate and scanner. Using these abilities bumps up the intensity of the game, allowing players to look at the deck, eliminate a card, force an opponent to reveal one of their cards and more. But these moves cost energy, and players who are too gung-ho with their powers will find themselves exhausted and unable to use them for a time.

PokerStars Power Up is live on PokerStars.eu and PokerStars.com.

CEO of The Stars Group, Rafi Ashkenazi, said, “Poker has maintained its popularity for nearly two centuries because it has evolved with the times. PokerStars Power Up continues this evolution by providing a modern twist on traditional poker that we believe will be exciting to not only poker players, but to a broad spectrum of gamers as well.

"We've been encouraged by the reaction during alpha testing in July and August and are optimistic that PokerStars Power Up will introduce poker to a new generation of mobile gamers, excite current players and help reconnect with less active or former players."
