EvenBet Gaming is enhancing the player experience of its online poker platform with the introduction of several interactive upgrades.

Three new features – video chat, throwable objects and bomb pots – have been integrated into the platform by the online gaming software developer to help emulate the offline poker experience online and improve communication and interactions.

EvenBet added that the features will boost several KPIs as well as provide a positive impact on engagement, retention and revenue.

“We are very excited to release these fun and engaging features within our platform,” commented Dmitry Starostenkov, CEO of EvenBet Gaming.

“We are continuously looking at ways to bring elements of the offline poker experience into the online world, and now players have the opportunity to express their emotions and engage with opponents in real-time with these upgrades.

“We are very proud of what we have achieved, and we look forward to working on future enhancements that continue to evolve the digital poker experience.”

EvenBet’s video chat feature will allow players to interact with one another through a camera and microphone in real-time at specific tables, excluding tournaments.

The throwable objects upgrade will give players the option to select one of 10 virtual animated objects to throw at their opposition, which the developer says offers a “funnier alternative to the classic emoji”.

Finally, the bomb pot feature will randomly appear within a session and force players to pay an ante, increasing the amount which can be won. 

Operators can control how often the bomb pot feature occurs during the game, but the player’s consent may be required before the game can continue.

Earlier this year, Starostenkov spoke to SBC about online poker and how such an offering can be rolled out efficiently.
