The world’s largest real-money online poker room announced today that their play money-only “.net” version of their games will now be available through a Facebook app. The Facebook app will pair players from PokerStars mobile and desktop software games. Additionally, PokerStars’ “Zoom Poker” interface will be available through the Facebook app. Zoom Poker is a fast-paced style of online poker where upon folding a hand players are immediately moved into another game where a new hand awaits them.
PokerStars’ Facebook play-money games will permit players to send chips to their Facebook friends. One could expect the influx of new play-money activity on PokerStars through this new Facebook app to result in an uptick in the real-money action on the “.com” version of the site’s games.
