GamePoint Poker Available Today Exclusively on Facebook and GamePoint.com
THE HAGUE, Jul. 21, 2014 – GamePoint, one of the world’s leading synchronous multiplayer social game developers, today expands its range of social casino games with the launch of GamePoint Poker, a new web based card game. GamePoint Poker is available today exclusively on GamePoint.com and Facebook worldwide. GamePoint Poker joins the suite of GamePoint social casino games including GamePoint Bingo and Royaldice.
“We’re proud of this latest addition to our suite of social casino games. After extensive testing by some of our most committed GamePoint players on our own portals, we feel we’re ready to present GamePoint Poker to the world by launching it on Facebook canvas. GamePoint has always been a strong player in the synchronous multiplayer and social casino spaces. Poker was a bit of a no-brainer, but we wanted to do it right. With GamePoint Poker, I feel we’ve created something that our players will love,” said Rik Haandrikman, Director of Business Development, GamePoint.
Where Las Vegas style casino Poker has been done often, GamePoint Poker offers an experience that closely resembles the way most people play Poker in day to day life: with friends. A truly social experience that aims to cultivate interpersonal relationships, GamePoint Poker follows a rich tradition of GamePoint games where communicating and getting to know your fellow players takes center stage. The use of Facebook Connect gives players the opportunity to find their friends and will power future seamless multiplayer across multiple devices.
GamePoint Poker is the most social Poker game available allowing players to engage in conversation, build connections and form friendships in a frictionless, natural fashion. The game invites players to interact over an exciting and visually-stunning game of cards where playing is more important than winning. Native Facebook functionality including gifting, sharing and cross platform login compliments the innate high retention of multiplayer gaming and makes for a game that has proven to be incredibly sticky, keeping players in the Beta glued to the game for an average of close to two hours a day.
The inclusion of Facebook-owned Parse for ingame tracking and CRM purposes preludes deeper integration in a mobile version of GamePoint Poker expected later this year.
GamePoint Poker is available for free on Facebook on http://apps.facebook.com/gppoker, on the GamePoint portal http://www.gamepoint.com/poker and is coming soon to Apple iPad. The GamePoint Poker community can be found via Facebook on the GamePoint Poker fan page https://www.facebook.com/PokerGP
More details on the development and philosophy behind GamePoint Poker will be shared during the ‘Merits of Multiplayer’ talk held by GamePoint Director of Business Development - Rik Haandrikman and Director of Game Development - Bob Christoff at Casual Connect San Francisco on Wednesday July the 23th.
