Fast Poker, similar to Full Tilt’s Rush Poker and the recently released Zoom Poker at PokerStars, has officially been launched on Unibet.
The latest entry in quick-paced poker, Fast Poker allows a pool of players to be moved to new tables immediately upon folding their cards at previous tables. First made popular by Full Tilt Poker in 2010 with Rush Poker, the concept is quite popular among some players. The InstaDeal Poker Network also offers a version exclusively on mobile devices.
Fast Poker is developed by Relax Gaming, a company based in Malta with subsidiaries in Finland and Estonia. Relax Gaming holds a license issued by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission as a poker, bingo and casino software developer whose software is used by operators of gaming products.
“This is a major, exciting development in the online poker world which offers players a new, fun spin on poker without losing the essence of game,” said Daniel Eskola, Head of Gaming at Unibet. “We are very much looking forward to strengthening our existing poker offering by working with Relax Gaming and have high hopes that our poker players will enjoy this new poker product.”
Unibet operates on the Microgaming Network. Several other skins on the network, including iGame and Betsson, are expected to follow Unibet in launching Fast Poker shortly. At this time, the fast-paced poker action is available only on a version that is browser-based at Unibet, but developers are working on a downloadable client version expected to be offered in the near future. Unibet provides online poker in the heavily-regulated French and Italian markets via the Ongame Network, but Fast Poker is currently not offered to those Unibet customers.
