- PokerStars is trialing a new format at Zoom tables for its Italian customers.
- This comes just a month after PokerStars limited the number of cash tables (excluding Zoom) a player can simultaneously play on the Italian client to six.
- To celebrate the launch of the new five-handed Zoom tables, PokerStars also ran a generous promotion where they gave away €50 cash bonus to every player who played 1000 hands at €0.25/€0.50.
- The operator is also running another promotion — “Zoom Happy Hours” to give a boost to the new Zoom tables.
PokerStars, the world’s largest real-money online poker room, is trialing a new structure at the fast-fold tables for its Italian customers. All the Zoom tables excluding heads-up have become five-max instead of the standard six-max.
The change came into effect on August 13, as per the Italian poker news site, Italiapokerclub. Many players found this move surprising as there was no official communication from PokerStars prior to the change nor has there been confirmation or an explanation since.
The change comes just a month after PokerStars launched another trial in Italy: Players are limited to playing a maximum of six tables simultaneously across all cash games, excluding Zoom.
