IGG ( www.igg.com), Santa Clara-based developers of popular titles such as Galaxy Online II, is proud to announce their latest cooperation with gaming portal Kongregate! In contrast to IGG’s other more serious titles, Texas Hold’Em Poker Deluxe ( http://www.kongregate.com/games/IGG_Games/texas-holdem-poker-deluxe) is the ultimate playground for players seeking a more lighthearted yet engaging break.

Since its entry into Facebook at the end of 2010, the app’s high-quality, polished graphics and intuitive game play continues to attract over 8 million global players, is one of the top rated Poker apps in the App Store and is ranked as the fastest growing app of its kind in Android’s Google Market. With so much success in its track record, Poker Deluxe promises an exciting, fun-packed and fast-paced social poker experience with plenty of competitive edge for every Kongregate gamer out there.

To keep the action going and better serve its loyal fans, Poker Deluxe utilizes regular, non-intrusive updates to offer one of the more stable gaming experiences in the market. Beyond classical game mechanics that are traditional to this beloved card game, the app’s many social features also help its ever growing poker community in touch with friends and rivals alike. Now partnered with Kongregate, making new friends will be easier than ever with just a click or two, Kongregate players can chat, share gifts, send animated emotes and send chips to any player of their choice from any table, anywhere.

If you’re new to Texas Hold’Em and is unsure of how to begin, Poker Deluxe is loaded with free giveaways and prizes for both novice and veteran players to keep you afloat. Regular Chip rewards are available every day, and you can earn tons of extra Chips, Gold and other great rewards from mini games, special events, and tournaments 24/7!

Texas Hold’Em Poker Deluxe is just one of the latest games from IGG to join the Kongregate family. Become part of the top poker community today and stay tuned for more to come!
