Prominence Poker is an extremely fun poker video game which is now available on the PlayStation Store. It is a free-to-play game released in 2016 by Pipeworks Studio. The game is a poker simulator and allows players to create their own avatars. The accessories can be upgraded as players continue to level up. While Prominence Poker can be played with an AI, gamers may find it more enjoyable when playing against other players.
The game introduces Prominence as a land of crooked goons. The place is built around shady locations and all its operations are underground. Gamers will find themselves going head-ups against four groups which will then end in a showdown with an entity known only as ‘The Mayor.’ Here, bankroll, reputation, and prestige are everything. Lose it all and you lose the game.
Although the game allows users to play from across the world, it is much different from the usual online poker format. This is because, while regular online poker is played on Personal Computers, Prominence Poker is built for the PlayStation. But even with this difference, the developers have adapted the game to console quiet well. Simple controls allow an uncomplicated experience. The character creation feature in the game allows a lot of options, which many will surely find enjoyable as well.
Players level up in the game by winning money from tournaments, games and unlocking items for their characters. The character options are versatile, and players can switch between them anytime they want. However, if you’re well-versed with poker, the quality of online players may disappoint you. As the game is free not all the players you come across will be good at their poker game.
While this may be the case, the arcade-style game is just as enjoyable to play as any other video game. The game is well executed and has even received plenty of positive reviews from its users. Check it out whenever you want to try out something new.
