The fully immersive freeplay poker game is now available to download for fans of virtual reality.
In September PokerStars announced their virtual reality poker offering PokerStars VR and yesterday it launched on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
PokerStars VR is a freeplay immersive social game developed by Lucky VR. Players can handle chips and cards just like in live poker, as well as voice chat in real time, pick up tells and play with a host of interactive props like champagne, cigars and confetti guns.
There are a range of stylish environments from saloons, yachts and a Macau themed suite. Players can customise their characters as well as walk around the card room. There will be the functionality to stream sports or TV shows on virtual TVs while you are playing, as well as leaderboards and private games.

“When we showcased the product it was amazing to see people really enjoy and become engrossed in the game,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at PokerStars. “We wanted to venture into the world of virtual reality because we believe it is an exciting avenue of technology to explore and something that our players would appreciate. I highly recommend that everyone tries out the game as it can only truly be understood and enjoyed by experiencing it.”
