After conducting software testing for the past two years followed by two separate Bitcoin Bonanzas the last two weeks, Infiniti Poker is now in “final preparations” for a real-money launch.
The extensive testing included the revolutionary concept known as “Infinivision” that will allow players at a select number of tables to see their opponents via webcam and allow themselves to also be seen. But Infinivision is not your run of the mill webcam experience, as it features a “Peripheral Resolution Interface” that allows for a broader view of more players such as those seated to a player’s left or right.
The aim is to bring more of a live table feel to the online poker experience. Previous attempts by other poker rooms to promote webcam play have not attracted much popularity. Infiniti Poker is attempting to break new ground in that area of online poker.
The latest Bitcoin giveaway that concluded at midnite on Friday, October 4 saw “SIlencesGldn” outshine all other players by parlaying $1,000 in play money into $9,746 and taking home the first place prize of 0.6 BTC. But her awards didn’t end there, as “SIlencesGldn” also played the most hands during the week at 6,524, adding another 0.5 BTC to her Infiniti Poker account.
Michael Hajduk, Infiniti Interactive’s chairman and CEO, told PokerUpdate that the previous two weeks of beta testing that featured Bitcoin payouts to the top play-money players allowed Infiniti Poker “to gain a wealth of information that is going to dramatically improve our game platform’s quality, performance and efficiency.”
Real-money players throughout the world including the U.S. who are looking to play at a new poker room that features an innovative webcam experience and Bitcoin as a payment processing option may want to jump aboard at Infiniti Poker. The highly-anticipated launch will feature a rakeback promotion of 50%. Cash games will be rolled out first, to be followed by MTTs and SitNGo action.
