PokerStars to Launch Social Casino Content

Over the course of the past year, we have seen PokerStars expand into various other areas aside from online poker. Casino games, slots and sportbetting are all now available under the PokerStars brand – and now, the operator will be getting involved in the social casino market.

This week, PokerStars has teamed up with Imperus Technologies to offer a new social casino to players. It will be a free-play mobile app that will be operated by PokerStars while running games that have been designed by Akamon. Titles will include: Fire Wheel 7s, Monte Carlo and Salsa Nights.

“Players have told us they want the ability to play slots while enjoying our jackpot tournaments and cash games,” says Lloyd Melnick, the Director of Social at PokerStars. “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.”

Imperus Technologies is a leading provider of social casino games for Android, iOS and Windows devices. The company provides a wide variety of social games for various mobile and desktop platforms that entertain and engage players. Over 50 million people around the world have played titles from Imperus Technology, making it a well-known online gaming brand. As such, it is a great partner for PokerStars’ latest venture.

“The agreement not only illustrates the popularity of our slot game titles but also shows our enormous potential to the rest of the industry as a way to increase social gaming market share,” says Imperus President, Vicenc Marti.

There is no set launch date for the new ‘Jackpot Poker by PokerStars’ mobile app. However, we will keep you posted when we learn more.
