888Poker.com launches ‘pokercam’ innovation

Online poker players are now being offered a new way to interact with other cash game Texas hold’em competitors.

Friday 25th February 2011



Online poker players with a webcam can now interact with opponents in a new way after 888Poker.com launched its ‘pokercam’ option in partnership with video chat and conferencing provider ooVoo. 888Poker.com revealed that its new ‘pokercam’ offering is available from the main lobby and allows players to see opponents while playing cash games of Texas hold’em. The domain stated that this latest innovation builds on the ‘enormously successful’ overhaul of its Poker 6 platform, which took place in June and saw it offer an improved intuitive usability targeted at the casual player while also allowing for competitors to enjoy three-dimensional poker. “The option builds on the strong social aspects of 888Poker.com’s rooms, which already lead the way in the use of personalised avatars providing an immersive social experience in which players can interact together,” read a statement from 888Poker.com. 888Poker.com declared that players can use its ‘pokercam’ option within the site’s Teams Tournament feature in order to join a virtual squad for further social interaction. In addition to going for their share of a traditional prize pool, players can score points for their team with a portion of the jackpot allocated to all members of the triumphant squad. “Through the addition of video streams to our hugely successful Poker 6, we are offering an even more personal, inclusive and social environment,” said Hili Shakked, Poker Offering Director for parent firm 888 Holdings. “On top of this, the chance to play as part of a team in the Team Tournaments provides a competitive edge that allows players to meet and play with other like-minded people.”
