PokerStars Zoom Poker out of beta, available on Android Mobile
After three hundred million hands, PokerStars has stripped the beta label off Zoom Poker and made it official. The newest poker innovation from PokerStars HQ is now officially ready for primetime.
A couple of months ago, PokerStars put out a beta release of Zoom Poker. The first two microstakes games that popped up in the player lobby hit their 1,500-player cap in a matter of minutes. We told you about the game. We told you about the Zoom Poker strategy. Now we can tell you, it's all for real and here to stay.
Since March, PokerStars has added stakes all the way up to $2.50/$5 and Zoom Poker games in the Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo and Five Card Draw variants. What's more, PokerStars also released Zoom for Mobile on the Android platform (available to players of PokerStars.com, PokerStars.eu and PokerStars.net).
If you're just learning about Zoom Poker, this post should explain most of the particulars. In short, it's the fastest way to play poker online. Jump in the pool, see your first hand, and play it if you like. If not, hit the Fast Fold button and move on to the next one. It's the game for anyone who has ever wanted to fold out of turn. What's more, you can multi-table to get in even more hands.
