Online poker takes a step closer to live poker today, as 888 Poker have launched Pokercam Tables. Pokercam tables allow players to play face to face via webcam technology bringing a true home game experience to the online world.
All 888poker players with a web cam can join specially marked “Video” tables in the lobby and be seen and heard along with everyone else at the table using in-built online communication technology similar to Skype.
This new technology opens up a new dynamic to the world of online poker. It will no doubt provide a fun home game element to the tables with plenty of banter. At the same time this will be the first time that physical tells may play a part in the online decision making process (Unless the player is hiding from the web cam).
Hili Shakked, Head of Poker, 888Holdings stated: “I’m thrilled to offer current and new customers of 888poker this innovative and fun feature. It’s been almost a year in the making and we are delighted at the result.”
“Players can look forward to enjoying a completely new and different poker experience, by simply downloading the new 888poker software on a computer with a standard webcam. Now the greater challenge will be how to conceal the big smile when you get pocket aces!”
The special Pokercam tables are available now - exclusively on the 888poker software.
