Crypto gaming and sportsbook operator Maverick Games has added poker to its igaming offering, targeting customers with an emphasis on social play and community.

The product allows Maverick’s customers to join a community of ‘poker aficionados’ and compete against one another, with player-to-player communication enabled by a chat system.

In preparation, the company has added a 70 per cent rakeback promotion for players signing up and depositing for the first time, as it eyes up an experience with ‘ongoing high-value bonuses and offers’.

Dan Kent, Director of Poker at Maverick Games, said: “I am so excited to officially launch our dedicated poker offering and for players to enjoy a poker experience like no other.

“I have been in the industry for a long time and have always listened to player feedback and taken it on board. All of these learnings have been applied to the Maverick poker product, making it the best in the business.

“We also want to provide players with a safe and secure place to play online poker, and with a brand that is trustworthy and transparent. Maverick Games is all of those things and more, and I can’t wait to see the first run of players take advantage of our 70% rakeback offer and sit down at the table for plenty of thrilling poker action.”

Maverick Games has been licenced by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission as a crypto-casino operator enabling secure deposits, play and withdrawals.

Kendra Ross, Managing Director of Maverick Games, added: “There’s nothing quite like the thrill of online poker and at Maverick Games, we want to become the number one poker destination for players all around the world.

“We’ve gone to great lengths to build a poker experience that we would want to enjoy ourselves, and Dan has been vital in ensuring that it hits the mark with players from day one. As a crypto gambling brand, it’s also important for us to assure players that we are secure, safe and reputable, and our Isle of Man licence allows us to do just that.”
