“World Series of Poker is the #1 brand in poker and this title is the most authentic poker game on the market today,” said David Oxford, Activision, Inc. “By facing off against the game’s advanced AI opponents, players will experience what it’s like to pull up a chair at the WSOP tournament table a virtual unknown and leave with all the fame and fortune of today’s most popular poker champions.”

In World Series of Poker, players ante up to play seven variations of poker including Texas Hold ‘Em, 7 Card Stud, Omaha and Razz, where poker enthusiasts will bluff, fold and call their way to the top.

Players can even choose their own catch phrases, also known as “table-talk,” to bluff opponents. As players win pots, they can upgrade their clothing and take advantage of hotel upgrades, bringing the excitement of the Strip to the privacy of their own homes.
