This game looks very exciting and it will be fascinating to see how popular it becomes. It looks way too complicated for me (2 hole cards are plenty for me!!) but good luck to all who play

Seems an interest concept, but i'm not familiar with it. I guess this alternative action may help give another life to the game, but may also distract players from the real thing that matters - the cards -, no? Still, i may give it a try if it comes available to my country!

Sounds like a interesting new feature of poker and i thing it was a good idea to create new games of online poker. We will see what it brings in the near future, but it seems that PokerStars is changing their strategy to a online gaming site.

I spotted promo clips with this game .... it's certainly not really poker and what's the average between poker and the game of dragons ...... maybe it will be interesting to try but of course this is not the game I'll play all the time. .... but of course it's very interesting ..... probably ...

I do not know what it is in this new game Power Up made by Pokerstars. I do not want to be excited because i want to see about this new game. I read about many good things in this article and I'm glad for this innovation. Remains to be seen if this game will be successful or not. Good Job Jokerstars. Big Smile

The fact that it passed the alpha testing doesnt mean much.
I doubt many players will play this one for real money.
For play it was good, perhaps, to spent some time online.
Betting your money though...

what the fcuk?

I have read the description and really have no idea why one should want to play this game for real money, maybe with the exception of being totally drunk, since this is the mind state where you are "killing it" at every game

I can not find it probably was not released in Europe. Maybe in few days will adjust this. I'm finally curious to see what it's all about maybe you or somebody else tell us to make an idea. Let's see if it's worth playing this new game Power Up. if i like it i will play this game more often. Good Luck everyone.

This game is similar one entertainment more, but not to poker. She not absolutely was pleasant to me as it is necessary long for time to give to understand its sense. I consider that a game is suitable for those it is boring for whom to play poker.

So far i havent seen anyone from brm willing to play this game for real money.
And why someone should play this one, from the moment some are struggling getting something from the normal poker games.
Just stick to what you know, no need for experimenting Smile

yeah I kinda understand the reason people do not rush in masses to try out this "new and exciting" poker/casino/bingo combo game for real money, kinda makes you wonder what the fcuk this really is and how to play it to win, and what it takes to get consistent results in the long term

I dont know how the pacman casino version will be, and what your chances will be to
win real money, but for now i would choose pacman instead of that version of poker.
If you can call it poker anyway.

It would be better to put your money in a version of poker that you havent played yet,
or you dont like, for example stud, and try your luck there, than playing this game.
Personal opinion.

Yes many people here in the forum too don't think it is good to play from real money this game, I like what mober writes about trying some different poker variant and I think it is good to see other real poker games but not to play something like this if you like poker because this game is more like casino game

Then if it's a game as in the casino i say let's leave it. We put mirexxx to play as he likes casino games and earn money in every promotions. This power up game he's going to change his name. It will be called Power Down. Big Smile If you do not like the game then i think they will not succeed to be successful.

So! Poker is a game in which the provider of he service makes a huge amount of money from people who want to play poker on the chance that they may win a proportion of that sum of money. Video games are somewhat different in that generally there is profit from the purchase of the game and not an ongoing value and players win nothing, so, how to entice those players to spend some money and get the chance of winning some while making the provider a load of money. Market manipulation to increase revenue from people who don't usually gamble.

I haven't played a play-money version of “Power Up” yet. Actually, I haven't logged into my PokerStars nor Full Tilt Poker account for a long time. Let's see if “Power Up” gets popularity among real-money players.

I still do not understand many things with Amaya Group. Peoples says that this game is not good. They destroyed the full tilt software, pokerstars 6 same. After that with pokerstarss 7 have combined with full tilt but with a badly upgraded software. Have changed the way with vpp fpp etc. and now with this game. I have the impression that these guys make it possible to going down. Confused
