The innovative features of Blaze Poker will allow poker players to join a ‘pool’ rather than a fixed table. When players fold a hand they are instantly presented with a new hand to play, ensuring no wait between hands. A single Blaze Poker table is expected to average an impressive 300 hands per hour, which is the equivalent to four or five normal tables.
Blaze Poker is the ‘best of breed’ of fast poker variants. The transition from game to game is seamless, and from launch, players can play multiple times in the same player pool.
Lydia Melton, Head of Network Games at Microgaming, comments: “Although a few fast poker products have popped up on the market in recent months, from an operator perspective, Blaze Poker sets itself apart with its seamless integration. Blaze Poker will run directly in the MPN client software, creating a user experience that is second to none.”
