StanJames poker, one of the leading skins on the Microgaming network, has announced the planned launch of ‘Blaze Poker‘. It’ll provide an experience extremely similar to that of PokerStars Zoom Poker. Blaze will certainly be a welcome addition to players on the European network, a fast-paced and exciting alternative to the standard cash game tables.
Just as Zoom, Blaze Poker will allow players to join a large pool of players from the same stake range with the ability to fast-fold hands. This removes a lot of the boredom associated with waiting on slow paced tables to be dealt another hand and means that hands are played quickly and continously. Blaze will also include the ability to multi-table, although of course you’ll never be seated at the same table more than once, so won’t play against yourself.
Microgaming riding the wave of change
It’s a statement of intent from a network who has always been relatively good in keeping their software and offerings up to date. They of course offer a time bank and miscellaneous tables, and this move shows that they’re keeping up with the recent curve in online poker developments as many operators are moving to provide a more social and recreational product to the casual gamer.
