Thanks to a collaboration between an ace software design
firm and a renowned online casino poker player, internet
casino poker fans will soon have access to an exciting,
more challenging incarnation of their favorite game.
Gameloft, which specializes in video and mobile phone
games, has joined forces with poker champ Gus Hansen to
create the ultimate experience for the many players who
go in for poker games at online casinos. Million Dollar
Poker, set to launch in October of this year, will be a
revolution in online gambling, which Gameloft and Hansen
are billing as “most accessible and advanced poker game
to date,” marrying expertise talent, and strategy.
Gameloft knows that poker is the backbone of online
gambling nowadays, says company Vice President Gonzague
de Vallois. Poker games are the bread and butter of many
online casinos, and Gameloft has accepted the challenge
to step the game up to the next level. Hansen’s hands-on
experience has assisted GameLoft in meeting that goal.
Industry-leading artificial intelligence will be at the
center of Million Dollar Poker’s magic, the quality of
which has not been seen in an online casino setting
previously, de Vallois boasts. The AI is meant to be
always evolving, the better to challenge the player.
VP de Vallois claims that the AI will be so advanced
that it can actually study the psychology of its human
online casino opponent, and come up with the best moves
to challenge them. Working with Hansen to develop the
internet casino title, says de Vallois, was eye-opening
and innovative. Surely this excitement will be passed
along to online gambling fans when Million Dollar Poker
is unleashed upon them later this fall.
