Win Limited Edition PokerStars Power Up Prizes for Free!
Imagine playing in a home game and having the ability to zap a card on the board to make it disappear, assuring your hand is best. Or getting to choose which card comes out next from three options. Or forcing all your opponents to expose one card, while you keep yours face down.
While these kinds of moves aren't a possibility in real life poker games, PokerStars' futuristic hybrid poker and eSports game PowerUp allows such abilities, along with many more.
If you have yet to experience the magic, PowerUp is an innovative new variant of online poker that combines the competitiveness and strategy of traditional poker with the thrills and excitement of modern video games.
It does that through the addition of nine game-changing powers, while specially designed graphics bring the game to life through immersive visual and audio effects. The fourteen unique avatars with rich personas top it all off.
|Clone||Receive a copy of the last power played this hand|
|Disintegrate||Destroy a targeted board card dealt this street|
|EMP||Prevent powers on this street|
|Engineer||Choose the deck's next card from three options|
|Intel||View the deck's top card for the rest of the hand|
|Reload||Redraw selected hole cards|
|Scanner||View the top two cards in the deck; choose whether to discard them|
|Upgrade||Draw a third hole card, then discard one|
|X-Ray||Force all opponents to expose one hole card|
Four months ago, PowerUp launched with a three-player No-Limit Hold'em Sit & Go winner-take-all format with buy-ins of $1, $3 and $7. Just last week, Stars added micro- and mid-stakes versions of the game with buy-ins of $0.25 and $15 as part of their full commercial rollout.
