Poker Grant launches games by EvenBet

20 October 2016
(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Maltese gaming operator has added new poker cash games to its offering. Popular Open Face Chinese Poker games are now available to Poker Grant desktop users.
Last week, Poker Grant has launched its first Chinese poker cash tables. These are real money tables with $0.02-$0.10 point limits available in the downloadable desktop application for Windows and OS X. Each table has three sits and a fixed limit pot.
Chinese poker is a game of both strategy and luck. A player needs good cards, but experience in creating card combination and calculating basic odds is equally as important.
"OFC poker is gaining popularity over the last few years. Five or six years ago, it was exotic; now it is played at the major poker tournaments and has its own World Championship. We are sure it is not a fast fashion but a long-term trend, and the interest to Chinese poker games will grow over time," says Dmitry Starostenkov, EvenBet Gaming CEO.
The list of the cash games now includes three OFC Pineapple variations. They are more dynamic when compared to common OFC poker and Pineapple-types games are more exciting than traditional Chinese Poker game.
"For a several years, EvenBet Gaming has been running different types of Chinese and Open Face Chinese poker games in its free social apps. Pineapple OFC poker has proved to be extremely interesting for cash players who used to play fast cash games like Texas Hold'em. Classic OFC poker is good for tournaments, but the cash games seem to be long for most players. Pineapple OFC runs faster, and it's very important," says Ekaterina Giganova, EvenBet Gaming marketing manager.
