First poker room from iPoker launches Zoom alike - Bet365 with Sprint Poker
It looks like having a format comparable to original Rush Poker is becoming a standard on online poker market. Just few days ago we reported about the fact that Unibet launched Blitz Poker, and now another poker room, Bet365 from iPoker networks, has informed that their own Sprint Poker has just been aired live.
So far this is the only poker room on the iPoker network to offer fast paced format of Texas Hold'em.
Bet365’s Managing Director of Games, Steve Ibberson, said, “We’re excited by the launch of Sprint and we think that our players will be too,” about the launch of Sprint Poker. Ibberson went on to say, “We want to provide the latest innovations so it’s great to be first into the market with Sprint: it keeps us ahead of the competition. With this format, even if you’ve got the same amount of time to play, you can play more hands and make more decisions; so it’s more intense than normal poker.”
