A new Blackjack game has been added to the PokerStars desktop software called HighHand™ Blackjack. In addition, new sidebet variations of Blackjack are now available, allowing players to wager on Perfect Pairs and 21+3. HighHand™ Blackjack is similar to a traditional game of Multiplayer Blackjack with an additional twist – a mandatory Pot Bet Wager that allows a peer-to-peer pot to be created and awarded at the completion of each hand. Perfect Pairs enables players to wager on whether their two cards will be paired, and 21+3 bets are optional wagers based upon the player’s own two cards, plus the dealer’s up-cards. More information on HighHand Blackjack is available online at http://psta.rs/1NW6c77 with further details on Perfect Pairs and 21+3 free to view online at http://psta.rs/1jdXcNJ.
Multiplayer Blackjack has been deployed on PokerStars mobile apps, allowing players to play Blackjack with their friends (and strangers) on the same table from their mobile devices. More information on Blackjack is now available online at http://psta.rs/1NOwaaQ.
Spanish players on PokerStars are now able to access Slots, which significantly expands the variety of games available on the desktop version of PokerStars.es. Previously, only table casino games like Roulette and Blackjack were available in Spain.
“Slots are the most popular casino games on PokerStars globally, and we’re happy to now offer some of the most popular titles in the world to Spanish players,” said Sam Hobcraft, Director of Casino for PokerStars and Full Tilt.
Italian players can now play online casino games with real, live dealers at PokerStars on the desktop software. For years, Italian poker players have been able to chat with each other at the tables, and PokerStars players can now chat and interact with live dealers in Roulette and Blackjack games. The Italian rollout follows the successful introduction of Live Casino in Spain on PokerStars.es and PokerStars.com earlier this year.
