When it comes to gambling, Poker almost rules the roost as the high stakes winner takes all past time that has made some people rich, and a lot more broke. Yet like any other card game, it can be enjoyed responsibly and happens to be great fun to play, which is why there are a number of virtual reality (VR) titles dedicated to the game. For those who want to spend real money then PokerStars VR is one of the better-known titles. And this week saw a new update launch adding several new features.
The biggest requested inclusion by fans was Sit & Go tournaments which is a one table tournament where you have a set number of chips. The blinds continually increase as the game whittles down to one player. There are four buy-in levels (5k, 20k, 100k, and 1M) and three-speed levels (hyper, turbo, and regular). Each cash and Sit & Go stake will now have a dedicated leaderboard with its own prizes and custom tiered ring to be won, from bronze to platinum depending on the stake, meaning that more are up for grabs.
Developer Lucky VR has also included Oculus’ new Expressive Avatars, up the stakes of Wyatt’s Game to a new Super High Roller $5k/$10k game, and enabled players to mute all other players’ props so they’re not disturbed or distracted and can play on in peace. The privacy bubble also allows players to keep a hold of their props so that no one else can touch any items in their personal space.
PokerStars VR is free-to-play on Steam and Oculus Store, with players gaining free chips on joining and 3 wheel spins per day. They also now have the option to buy extra bankroll if they want to. To celebrate the launch, there will be a limited-time sale, where double the usual number of chips can be purchased e.g. for $1.99 USD players will receive 20,000 rather than the usual 10,000.
