PokerStars is working hard to branch out into almost every facet of the online gambling market. Over the course of the past year, we have seen the company launch a sportsbetting product and online casino games; now, PokerStars will be adding social slots and pokies to its existing mobile app.
Jackpot Poker by PokerStars will now feature various online pokies from Imperus Technologies, which will be powered by Akamon. PokerStars recognised that app users wanted more choice and a few side games, so the operator decided to enlist in a partner to meet this demand.
“Players have told us they want the ability to play slots while enjoying our jackpot tournaments and cash games,” says Lloyd Melnick, PokerStars’ Director of Social. “The addition of Akamon’s slots to Jackpot Poker by PokerStars is the next evolution of Jackpot Poker, and we will continue to add the features and capabilities our players want.”
There are three games that will be launched initial on the Jackpot Poker by PokerStars platform:
- Fire Wheel 7s
- Monte Carlo
- Salsa Nights
These are all popular Akamon slots that players will recognise from other social casino apps. Now, they will be available alongside PokerStars’ Jackpot Poker offering, making for a much more diverse and richer online gaming experience. They will be free to play, as is the case with the poker games on the app. Participants wager with play-money, and they have the option to purchase more chips if necessary.
This is just the first addition to Jackpot Poker that PokerStars has made. If these games are well-received by players, it is likely that the operator will roll out more online pokies and even some casino games for players on the app.
