PokerStars Releases Its UK Casino

Thursday, 18 December 2014

An email to existing UK players on Tuesday signalled the start of PokerStars' casino platform in the British Isles.

Although not the glittering unveiling that many expected, the announcement did inform UK based players that they will now be able to play blackjack and roulette from as little as $0.10.

On top of creating a new set of gaming options for player, PokerStars has implemented an "innovative" multi player system that allows players to chat with each other as they grind. The platform has been built into PokerStars 7 and players can access the new games with the click of a few buttons.

PokerStars has stated that real money casino gaming will count towards players' FPP balances; however, if users don't want to see the new casinos games, there is a toggle option to hide the games from the main lobby.

In addition to a new casino platform, PokerStars is also planning VIP changes heading into 2015. Although the alterations haven't yet been announced, many are expecting a similar drop to VIP benefits that have been seen at Full Tilt in recent days.
