Virgin Poker is back and it’s got a new app on Facebook that lets you play with friends all over the world
Why do you play poker? For some people it’s not about the money, it’s just about having fun and playing in a competitive environment. If that sounds like you then you should check out the new Virgin Poker app, which is now in beta testing on Facebook.
Virgin Poker has always been about the community and now it’s aiming to reinvent the online experience and take it back to grass roots. If you just want to sit down and play poker with friends, without worrying about HUDs and range merging, it could be the perfect place for you to play.
It couldn’t be easier to get started either. Just log-in via your Facebook account and you’ll get free chips to play with. You can jump straight into a cash game and try to spin these up, or you can register for daily tournaments and pit your skills against other Virgin Poker players from all over the world.
If you’re feeling lucky you can let your chips play for you in the Daily All-In tournament – just register and watch the fireworks in a heads-up format where every player is all-in every hand. If you’re lucky you’ll win the lion’s share of the 20k prize pool.
There are other innovative and fun tournament formats as well. The Anteater gives you two-minute levels and big antes, which encourages you to play more aggressively. The Chip and a Chair puts you in the tournament with just a single chip – can you spin it up to victory?
If you’re new to the game, Virgin Poker is the perfect place to hone your skills. As well as playing with like-minded, friendly people, you can use the free poker academy to learn basic and more advanced strategies, with videos and interactive games to help you understand the core concepts.
You can also track your progress, with stats on your game and fun challenges that you can complete to unlock more cool stuff and boost your XP points. XP points enable you to level up and prove your prowess on the tables.
Virgin Poker is in beta testing, and that means that you can help shape its direction and create the perfect card room for you. To try it out today just click here and log-in to your Facebook account to join in the fun.
