Double Down Interactive's Texas Hold'em Poker offers no-limit hands for players of all skill levels
Seattle-based IGT subsidiary Double Down Interactive has augmented its major online casino on Facebook with the launch of Texas Hold'em Poker, which joins the company's previous poker offering, Omaha Poker.
"Our launch of Texas Hold'em Poker is a huge step forward for us and the poker community on Facebook," said Greg Enell, Double Down Interactive founder and vice president.
"The Texas Hold'em game launch will provide the millions of Texas Hold'em fans around the world with a unique playing experience on Facebook."
Free to play, DoubleDown Casino's No Limit Texas Hold'em offers:
- Four different playing speeds to accommodate beginning players and poker pros;
- A free hand-ranking tool that helps players understand the playing power of their hands; and
- Easy to understand poker tutorials for all poker players.
"Adding Texas Hold'em to the existing DoubleDown Casino portfolio allows us to bring one of the world's most popular games to Facebook's estimated 900 million users," said Robert Melendres, IGT executive vice president of emerging businesses.
"In the coming year, we will be introducing many popular IGT titles to Double Down Casino to provide our social players with engaging slot play."
Double Down offers more than 20 games and focuses on fun and dynamic game mechanics by adding a social twist to traditional casino-style experiences. Players receive free chips every day to try their hands at poker, slots, roulette, video poker and popular slot tournaments.
DoubleDown Casino was acknowledged by Facebook as the fourth most popular game on Facebook in 2011.
