PokerStars Details Casino Rollout, Ability to Opt-out


Last week PokerStars announced its decision to introduce casino games to its software but the company also released a statement that details the ways players can stick to purely poker.

Jeanne David, the Responsible Gaming Manager for the Rational Group, penned a blog post where she contended the company would continue to operate its games - no matter if they are poker or casino - in a responsible manner.

“While we are very excited about this significant expansion in our product offering, it comes with an obligation to manage it responsibly,” she said.

“I want to assure you that responsible gaming practices have literally been baked into the development of the product and our approach to marketing and promotion.”

Vicky Coren-Mitchell left PokerStars this week.

The new casino games led to the departure of long-time Team PokerStars Pro Victoria Coren-Mitchell from the company earlier this week.

Here are the new details about the casino rollout straight from David:

1. Beginning December 3rd, you'll be able to opt out of all casino and sportsbook marketing simply by clicking a button in the client. And of course, there's an "unsubscribe" link in every one of our emails. So if you get one and don't want to get any more, a couple of clicks will take care of that.

2. As we noted in our initial announcement, you will be able to make the casino games and sports betting portions of the client completely invisible to you if you wish.

3. You will be able to set stakes limits for the casino games.
