Gala Games recently made waves as it unveiled a high-profile partnership with Las Vegas’ PokerGO, a frontrunner in poker streaming platforms. It is important to know that this symbiotic collaboration births ‘PokerGO Play,’ an innovative Web3 social poker platform that will allow users to amplify in-game avatars and bag actual-world rewards.
Poised for its beta testing phase this June, PokerGO Play is set to roll out fully later this year, heralding a thrilling epoch in the ever-evolving digital gaming world.
Last year, PokerGO captured global attention with its Genesis collection, a unique assortment of 1,326 nonfungible tokens (NFTs) which symbolize all plausible opening hand mixtures in Texas Hold’em. This innovative NFT assortment has generated a cumulative trading volume of around 52 Ether ETH, with each NFT commanding a floor price of 0.1 ETH.
Fusion of tradition and technology: PokerGO Play enters the game
A week before this exciting partnership was announced, Gala developers declared the destruction of over 21 billion Gala (GALA) tokens valued at approximately $640 million post the protocol’s v2 airdrop.
This fresh alliance with PokerGO seeks to synthesize the excitement of poker with the cutting-edge technology of Web3 experiences. PokerGO Play, a product of this dynamic partnership, aims to infuse a revitalizing breath into the social gaming, presenting poker lovers worldwide with an innovative platform to revel in their preferred game.
Sporting an exquisite gameplay interface and phenomenal overall functionality, PokerGO Play champions the spirit of digital gaming. It goes beyond the conventional boundaries of a poker platform, offering players the tantalizing opportunity to redeem real-world rewards, thereby adding a fresh dimension to their gaming journey. The allure of this platform is enhanced by the appointment of Maria Ho, a well-renowned poker virtuoso, as its official ambassador, amplifying its appeal and global reach.
Navigating the unpredictable waters of the digital gaming landscape is not devoid of challenges, as Gala Games discovered last November when its token bridge was exploited, resulting in an estimated loss of $4.5 million. Undeterred, Gala Games and PokerGO are unwavering in their commitment to redefining the world of online poker, striving to roll out special events from PokerGO’s dedicated Las Vegas studio, offering an unprecedented and immersive gaming experience to poker enthusiasts worldwide.
