PokerStars Goes All-In On Facebook


Now you can show your poker prowess on your wall, be a poker brat to your friends, and all-around gamble the day away…..virtually.

There’s no doubt that poker is a social game – the interaction between the players at a table are a huge factor in how well you’ll play. But a true social game? Hmmmm…..well, Pokerstars is betting that its new free-to-play game on Facebook will reel in all the fish. Now, there is some derision in the poker world for free-to-play tables. After all, people really do react differently when it’s real money (their real money) on the line. But, if you happen to be either flat broke (that’s me!) or subject to the American law against internet poker (Yup, me again!), it might be worth a try just to get your fix in. The app is still in beta, so there may be a few kinks along the way, but you can check it out/buy in here.
