If you really like poker, you've already figured out how to play on real money sites or for play money on those sites. This is a very strange offering. I wonder what market they're going after and how they've 'arcade game'd' poker.

I think what they're going for, is a "career mode," so to speak, for poker. Those were a lot more common a couple generations ago: think World Championship Poker back on PS2, and perhaps even the WPT game on PS2.

Console developers got a little skittish about poker in general back around 2006, for obvious reasons. I think the problem in subsequent years was, how do you put out a decent poker game on consoles, that doesn't come across as, for lack of a better term, pointless? How do you "game-ify" a card game into a console experience?

It looks like what they're doing, is adding a sense of character and career progression, in order to give users the emotional hook that's needed for a longitudinal console title.

Intriguing. Worth keeping an eye on.

Let me guess, Fortnite dancing emotes after winning a game? Hotdog burger and sushi costume dlc to wear at the poker table? You know every game publisher wants that little kid money now

Edit: "Poker Club is designed as a social experience, in line with the increasing online community-led nature of the gaming landscape...Poker Club will connect players with friends and poker fans around the world...working towards shared goals that unlock rewards...customizable gear... meaning the best way to play is together..."

Didn't even read that paragraph at first but it seems I was dead on. Not a surprise

I've played a lot of poker games over the years. Poker Club is among the worst. The character models are bad, the animations are bad, the user interface and controls are bad, and the pace of gameplay is terrible. I timed how long it took for a single hand to play out: over seven minutes. In 30 minutes of playing, I was dealt five hands, all of which I folded pre-flop. So in 30 minutes of playing, I never really got to play at all. If you want a normal poker game to play you can check out online pkv poker, I'm playing there constantly, and the best thing right there is that they have easy withdrawal, it takes less than 1 day to get the money on your account.
