Cryptologic releases new online poker features

Empire Casino, London

Last week Cryptologic Ltd. announced it was introducing two unique features to its online poker software line-up. Now players will be able to host their own tournaments, plus there is a new sorting and filtering tool for players to customize setting for cash games and tournaments.

"For CryptoLogic, everything starts with the customer experience - and today we introduce a tool that will let players take their poker game to a whole new level," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic president and CEO.

"It's all about making the poker player's experience with CryptoLogic software more flexible and more entertaining than ever before."

Private tournaments

The first new feature to the company's online poker software allows players to create their own tournaments, simulating the experience of hosting a poker game at home.

According to Cryptologic, this is a community-building feature that allows players to choose the games they want to play at the stakes they want to play for and host them at a time most convenient for them. They'll also be able to invite the players they'd like to participate.

A player can create a tournament just by clicking a button in the poker lobby, which will take them to a private tournament setup window. There, the player can set up the game and once it is created, an e-mail invitation will go out to the players selected for the event. Only those who receive an invitation can participate.

New sorting and filtering tool

The new and improved sorting and filtering tool in Cryptologic's online poker software means players will spend less time trying to find the game they want and more time at the tables they want to be at.

The feature allows players to customize the poker lobby by creating their own settings for cash games and tournaments. This includes choosing to display only the poker games they like to play according to game type and speed, choice of stakes and currency and even the maximum number of players at their table and preferred start time.

"CryptoLogic's newest Internet poker innovations ensure the customer is equipped to play their poker game how they want, where they want and when they want," said Justin Thouin, CryptoLogic vice president, product management and Business Development.

"It's about putting poker in the hands of players, and letting great entertainment happen - faster."
