Online poker provider Genting Poker has announced that it is the first iPoker room to launch Playtech's Home Game product, providing its players with the ability to create their own private online tournaments.
 
The company is promoting the Home Game launch with the opportunity for 8 players to win a seat against professional poker player James Akenhead, in the ‘Live Pro Home Game STT’ at the Palm Beach Casino on Sunday 6th November. This includes a 2012 sponsorship package to the winner worth more than GBP 10,000, a company spokesman said this week.
 
Every player who organises or wins a home game before Saturday 1st October will be awarded a seat in the online Pro Game Qualifier from which the top 8 players will be drawn, subsequently heading to the Palm Beach finale in early November.
