Onlinepoker: unmasked.poker - Private video chat poker games without registration [Jitsi Meet]
 

  • Without registration and software installation
  • Without real money stakes
  • Intuitively operable
  • Playable for free
  • For spontaneous poker rounds and whole tournaments
  • One year development time
 
Erlangen, July 2021 - The German IT company feinarbyte recently published a new type of poker platform with integrated video chat under the website unmasked.poker. One remarkable thing in particular: A private table can be created easily with just one click: neither registration nor software installation is necessary. unmasked.poker uses the video conference technology of Jitsi Meet. Players cannot wager real money on the website. The browser game is free of charge for single tables in cash game and sit-and-go mode.
 
unmasked.poker is the perfect poker room for private homegames, poker clubs and training groups. The possibilities are as diverse as they are intuitive: With just one click, you create a room for the "Quick Game". After choosing the game format and the stack size, you send the browser link to your fellow players. Anyone who has the link can immediately take a seat at the private table and play along via web browser and webcam.
 
Korbinian Sollner, Managing Director and Head of Software Development at feinarbyte, explains how he came up with the idea: "Because of Corona I could no longer meet up with friends to play poker. The longing for our card game was so great that, due to a lack of comparable offers, we have been developing unmasked.poker with full commitment for more than a year now."
 
Coming soon: Poker Club Features and Multi-table Tournaments
 
Those who want to establish a regular poker game will soon be able to register a club that can be set up in their own design. For the club, statistics can then be created for individual sessions or for an entire season, so that ranking tournaments and championships can be played out. The number of tables in a club is unlimited - even heads-up tournaments are possible. Clubs will also be able to use their own rake system at their tables (for instance to simulate the conditions at a casino). For individual wishes, the feinarbyte team is available on request.
 
A small fee will be charged for the poker club features and the multi-table tournaments.
 
unmasked.poker is looking forward to your feedback and reviews - have fun with your online poker club!
