London, July 31 2019 – Playtech, the world’s leading gambling technology company, has announced the launch of its latest live Poker variant, Casino Stud Poker – complete with the chance to win an exclusive Live network jackpot.
Casino Stud Poker joins Casino Hold’em and Three Card Brag in Playtech’s live Poker selection, offering even more ways to enjoy the classic game in a live environment. In each round the player and the dealer both receive five cards with the best hand winning. Any player betting £1 has a chance to win the unique Live network jackpot by scoring a Royal Flush.
Based in Playtech’s flagship Eurolive facility in Riga, the Casino Stud Poker room is now available 24/ 7 network-wide following an exclusive period with Bet365. Reflecting the ongoing trend for portrait play on mobile, the game has been developed to work in both landscape and portrait modes.
Kevin Kilminster, Head of Live Casino Innovation at Playtech, comments: “At Playtech we’re committed to developing fresh and innovative game variants to deliver the diversity our customers demand and to offer Live Casino players a superior experience. 2019 has been our busiest year yet for new game variants, and Casino Stud Poker is already proving to be a highly popular addition to our range.
“With a jackpot exclusive to the Live network and the chance to win at just £1, Casino Stud Poker combines classic gameplay with a truly compelling proposition for players. Following the success of Live Casino Hold’em and Three Card Brag, and with another exciting new variant due to launch later this year, Playtech continues to lead the way on delivering exciting, versatile live Poker options for our customers”.
