PokerStars is often at the forefront of online poker innovation, and the gaming giant is most certainly the market leader in the rapidly emerging virtual reality world. PokerStars has embraced the technology, and after a hugely successful Season 1 of the PokerStars VR Metaverse POker Tour, Season 2 is coming to your VR headset starting today, November 24th.
PokerStars VR launched in 2018 and has come a long way since, cementing its status as the best place to play VR poker. PokerStars VR is free to download and play, with players battling it out for chips rather than real money in a fully immersive virtual reality social casino. Players can sit down with others from afar, create private rooms, hang out in their personal suite, or search for leaderboards in cash games, sit & gos, and multi-table tournaments
PokerStars VR added craps to its portfolio in October 2022 where it joined blackjack, roulette and a selection of slot machines, all without risk to their bankroll, all in visually stunning locations with unprecedented realism.
What is the PokerStars VR Metaverse Poker Tour?
The Metaverse Poker Tower is the brainchild of PokerStars VR and the app’s flagship tournament series. Season 1 was a smash hit with tens of thousands of players from all over the world and from all walks of life competing for their slice of massive prize pools and massive poker loot!
Nearly 500 players participated in the 25,000 Hyper Season 1 Stop 1 event, showing just how popular VR poker tournaments can be. “Shoe2001” survived them all, winning an exceptional prize in addition to an exclusive winner’s ring, a digital item that “Schoen2011” can now proudly display on its fully personalized avatar.
The winners of the various Metaverse Poker Tour events win bracelets, rings, pendants and belts, while the most successful players in the series, those who finish at the top of the tour leaderboards, virtually get their hands on pendants in gold and silver.
Last weekend, an epic Tournament of Champions took place, which was only open to past winners of the Metaverse Poker Tour. Eleven grinders fought tooth and nail for the lion’s share of a 30 million chip prize pool, and the top honors went to ” Abandoned “ who collected 15 million chips and a personalized Tournament of Champions belt.
