PaddyPowerPoker first to launch Instant Play poker on Ipoker-network
January 8, 2009
Paddy Power Poker today launches Instant Play poker, enabling players to play anytime, anywhere. Ireland’s largest poker room is the first on the iPoker network to launch the No Download software, which allows players to enjoy the same functionality as the existing client without having to download any software. All players need is internet access via a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox), while administrative permission for machines used (Instant Play software is compatible with PC, Mac and Linux) will not be required.
“We’re thrilled to extend our product offering to include a non-downloadable version of our software. The fact that players can now use the Instant Play software anytime, anywhere gives them the flexibility to play at times that were previously unsuitable” said Paddy Power, Communications Manager for paddypowerpoker. “It also means that players who don’t want to download the standard software client can try out the iPoker software on paddypowerpoker.com. Anything that makes it easier for our players to enjoy themselves on our poker room is something to cheer, in my book!”
To celebrate the launch, paddypowerpoker.com is running a Lunchtime Series of Poker (LSOP) made up of $2 tournaments at 1pm from January 7th to January 13th, with the top ten finishers in each event awarded a $5.50 Irish Open satellite token. Additionally, the top twenty players from each tournament will qualify for the LSOP Final at 1pm on January 14th. This freeroll will feature a $200 prizepool and award a $22 Irish Open satellite token to the top ten finishers.
