casino and poker software developer,
Cryptologic, has revealed two improvements recently
made to their poker software platform. A huge and
innovative improvement to say the least, Cryptologic
announced that beginning today, July 3, players will
have the option to host their own tournaments and use a
filtering tool that permits them to customize personal
settings for real money games and poker tournaments.
Aiming to improve
customer service standards, Cryptologic's latest
innovations certainly do more to improve the playing
experience for hundreds of thousands of poker players.
If you are a U.S. citizen, sorry to disappoint you -
Cryptologic powered online casinos and poker rooms
stopped accepting real money bets with the passing of
the UIGEA. However, that may very well change in the
not-too-distant future with the help of the Internet
Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act.
The new sorting and
filtering tool is designed to speed up the process of
finding the perfect tournament for your bankroll and
personal needs. Customizable filtering options include
game type and speed, maximum number of players, stakes
and currency, and tournament start times. Available
through the lobby of the online poker software, settings
for the filtering tool can be changed at any time.
And if you can't
find a tournament you like, now you can create your own.
With this new feature, players can build a tournament
from scratch, choose a starting time and invite friends
- a completely flexible tournament to say the least.
Customizable game options include game type, buy-in,
currency, payout and date/time. As mentioned, only select
players can participate in the tournament, which is
facilitated by an email feature that can be programmed
to send email invitations to join the tournament.
interested in joining Cryptologic's massive online poker
network, an account can be opened at one of several
online poker rooms in the network, including
InterCasino, William Hill and Littlewoods. On
average, there over 400,000 poker hands dealt across the
network each day, and enough capability to host 50,000
players at a single time.
