A Strong Start

When we had the opportunity to team up with poker video legends at PokerGO last summer for a web3 card game, we raised the bet with the first of many interactive and immersive casino game experiences within the Gala ecosystem.

Our partners at PokerGO gave early supporters six months of free access to PokerGO’s exclusive poker content, which included live events from the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) that were not shown anywhere on television. Later on, when various final tournament events were shown in replay, our game was featured on the chair backs of some of the greatest players of our time, along with ads and mentions from the event announcers.

$GALA Sweepstakes

It was time for a new form of player empowerment that did not sacrifice the thrill of the game’s crucial betting components.

This is how our web3 econ and reward team came up with the concept of Weekly Sweepstakes. Players are rewarded with a number of no-purchase-necessary Weekly Sweepstakes entries corresponding to the amount of chips they won during each 24 hour period. You can get in on the Weekly Sweepstakes now, with the prize chances listed below. All you have to do is start playing for free!

Upping the Ante

After digesting tons of community feedback and deeply analyzing the player experience, PokerGO Play decided to move in a new direction.

First, we removed the daily chip reset that leveled the playing field every 24 hours. This update went live on February 8th as announced in this blog post. Instead of taking players’ hard-won chips, we started taking a house share from Sit-n-Go entries and a rake from every ‘cash” style game pot won. Now, players are free to strategize on a longer term, thinking past the 24-hour sprint and stacking as many chips as possible.

New Revolution Incoming

Before the end of Q1 2024, we’ll drop some big news about the future of PokerGO Play. This will include a mission and vision for the future of casual casino gaming with Gala, as well as a completely new model for ownership and rewards in PokerGO Play. A new Litepaper and a new token will soon be introduced, so get ready.

For now, this is what we’ll say:

You deserve rewards for playing, and that’s what we intend to deliver.

Ownership

There are several ways to own items in the PokerGO Play ecosystem, and more will show up throughout the rest of this year.

Avatar Frames

Now that we’ve removed the daily Chip reset, owners of Avatar Frames get a daily login bonus of chips straight to their account. That bonus is upgradeable as your Frame is upgraded, and it varies based on the rarity of your Frame.*

*Ancient Avatar Frames have the largest daily chip bonus and upgrade potential.

Avatar Frames are also GalaChain minted NFTs that owners are free to trade or sell p2p within the Gala ecosystem or even bridge to another blockchain.

Chips

Players can always stack up by buying chips directly from the Gala store, or within the app. While these chips were previously displayed as a pack of Chip Markers, now they’re simply rewarded to your chip balance automatically with your one-time purchase.

Play the Game

We can hardly wait to show you what PokerGO Play has in store for the coming months. For now, it’s time to get good, learn the rules and prep that poker face. You’re gonna need it, or the sharks will sense your excitement like blood in the water. 🃏

We’ll share some tips and tricks in upcoming blogs, as well as some general poker advice from some of our in-house experts. Time to hit the tables!
