Online gaming brand PokerStars has been very busy over the last couple of months, creating new games and software for its players. Now, the poker brand has launched Casino Rush, its very own mobile gaming app, to bring its unique poker games to players’ tablets and smartphones.
The mobile app is the latest innovation from PokerStars, which was recently acquired by the Canadian gaming developer Amaya. The app is now available for download around the world, including the Apple iStore. It goes without saying that the app is also fully optimised for use on all iPhone and iPad models.
There are many mobile casino apps on the market today, but Casino Rush offers one very important feature that makes it stand out in the industry. Casino Rush is a free to play app, which delivers mobile poker, casino games and slots to players without any cash or deposits needed beforehand.
The app was created by PokerStars to bring mobile players immersive free gaming opportunities that they can enjoy while on the move. It is free to install on iOS devices, and offers an unusual innovation as well. The casino games in the Casino Rush app can be played offline, bringing players entertainment in an even more versatile format.
PokerStars Director of Social Gaming, Lloyd Melnick, has commented on the launch of the new free to play app. The director said that his company has spent much time assessing the social casino market, finding out what is missing, and bringing players what they want.
Melnick noted that PokerStars’ analysis revealed that social casino players want a convenient poker experience that they can enjoy regardless of whether or not they’re connected to the internet. This was the reason behind the creation of Casino Rush, an app which brings players free, offline poker, casino and slots in a single, modern piece of software.
New players at Casino Rush will receive 75,000 free chips when they start to play. Additionally, these players may also gain extra free chips as they unlock new games in the app, which include Lucky Hands, Swap the Flop Poker, and All In Split.
The Casino Rush iPhone app also offers a leaderboard which players can use to find the best poker games in their country and on an international scale. It’s also possible for players to create their own private leaderboards so that they can compete against friends for the title of Casino Rush Champion.
