PokerStars VR Launches on Meta Quest Pro 28 Oct

Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta launched a new VR headset called Meta Quest Pro, which is aimed primarily towards business users, especially with a rather steep purchase price of $1,499.99. But that doesn’t mean you can’t play games on it, quite the contrary as many have been released alongside it, including PokerStars VR.

PokerStars VR is not a new thing as you could download the software from Steam since 2018 and play on the virtual felts using Oculus Rift or some other VR headset. The main difference now is that computer is not needed for running the client, instead you can jump directly into games on metaverse using Meta Quest Pro alone.

Developers behind PokerStars VR, Lucky VR have been busy taking full advantage of the enhanced user’s performance with hundreds of toys, props and items available, full color passthrough for a full mixed-reality experience, face and eye tracking, 360-degree range of motion using controllers, and much more.

"Our goal with PokerStars VR is to push the potential of new technologies as far as we can to create a fun and authentic social casino game that really is limitless," said James O’Reilly, Director of VR and Innovation at PokerStars. "We’re extremely proud to be part of the launch of Meta’s Quest Pro, which is a transformation in virtual and mixed reality. Our developers have been having great fun exploring what this technology means for our players and we can’t wait to show them what we have in store."

PokerStars VR is a free-to-play social casino game that include cash games, multi table tournaments, Sit & Go tournaments, Spin and Go’s and bunch of other casino games.
