Poker Only for Top Online Poker Room

PokerstarsPokerStars is a top online poker room known for offering high quality cash game and tournament play. Full Tilt Poker is the sister site of PokerStars and recently launched casino gaming options. This had many in the industry wondering if PokerStars would add casino gaming as well.

According to a TwoPlusTwo Question and Answer Session with Steve Day, a representative for PokerStars, the site will not be adding casino games. Day stated that as of right now there are no plans for casino games to be added to the client at PokerStars.

Day is not going to say never, but as of right now, PokerStars is going to be poker and nothing else. Day stated ‘We are Poker’ and will offer nothing else. PokerStars has a full plate as of right now with several live poker tours and tournaments, regular online gaming and promotional opportunities. It also seems odd to think that PokerStars might begin to dabble in online casino games.

Full Tilt Poker first began to offer casino gaming in January of this year with the addition of blackjack and roulette. With the addition of these games to the poker client, the Rational Group marked the first time that games of a non-poker variety were offered for real money game play.

Slot gaming is also expected by Spring of this year with the recent partnership of The Rational Group with Leander Games. Slots will be added to Full Tilt due to the partnership in the coming months. The Full Tilt Poker site is also looking to possibly offer sports betting to members of the site.

So, for now, players can enjoy online casino and poker gaming at Full Tilt Poker. PokerStars will remain an online poker site and will not be adding casino gaming options at this time.
