December 9, 2011 : FAST ONLINE POKER CONCEPT SPREADING
First it was Rush Poker, then InstaDeal….now Speed Poker debuts
The concept of fast, turbo-charged poker for people on the move is clearly catching on since it was introduced by Full Tilt with Rush Poker, and more recently by InstaDeal. This week Pokertube launched the latest offering in the genre, titled Speed Poker.
Pokertube Speed Poker.com enables mobile users to download Speed Poker to their Android and Apple tablet and smartphone handhelds.
The concept is generally similar to Speed Poker's predecessors – players form part of a pool competing against one another, and are moved to another table the moment they fold a hand, thus dramatically speeding up the action.
“We see a great future in Speed Poker and especially the mobile platform. It’s very exciting to be the first room to offer real money poker on a multi-mobile platform,” said PokerTube Speed Poker manager, Stefan Wittmoss, this week.
Enticing fast poker fans to try the new offering, Wittmoss is offering sign up bonuses of 200 percent maxed at Euro 400 and a major freeroll tourney on December 22.
