Timely debut for RisePoker.com

US-legal and rake-free online poker site is set to premiere tomorrow offering players the chance to compete for monthly real-money cash prizes totaling $100,000.

Monday 30th May 2011



A new online poker site designed for players that have been left high and dry by the recent ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Blue Monday’ indictments in the US is set to launch tomorrow at RisePoker.com offering players the chance to compete for up to $100,000 in cash and prizes every month. A rake-free and US-legal domain, RisePoker.com will reside on the free-to-play Zen Entertainment Network from Zen Entertainment Incorporated and feature tiered membership levels. Fans of online poker in the US can join RisePoker.com for free or select to pay a $19.99 monthly ‘grinder’ membership fee for additional benefits. There is also set to be a free ‘alternative means of entry’ option associated with each membership level. “The market could not be better for a new and innovative rake-free site to fill the massive void created by the recent US departures of the largest offshore online gambling sites,” said Steve Preiss, Business Development Executive Vice-President for RisePoker.com. “RisePoker.com will offer these players a safe and secure US-legal option that still offers the thrill of competing for real-money cash and prizes. “We plan on changing the way people perceive traditional subscription poker sites and build a brand with long-lasting value for our members. Members can regularly play against and connect with some of the best professionals in the world, improve their game through strategy and training and be eligible for tangible short and long-term benefits and rewards.” To celebrate its launch, RisePoker.com revealed that it is set to run a special event offering the prize of one seat into the main event of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) valued at $10,000 alongside a $5,000 kick-off bounty tournament. In addition, those registering early will be eligible for a $1,000 kick-off freeroll and to receive special promotional offers. “The RisePoker.com group is comprised of the preeminent minds in poker today,” said Craig Billings, Chief Executive Officer for Zen Entertainment. “Working with them represents an exciting endeavour for Zen Entertainment. We are impressed with how RisePoker.com is going about building its brand and a unique and player-centric approach to its customers. Zen Entertainment looks forward to providing best-of-breed and rake-free poker software to power RisePoker.com.”
