On the 18th of April, TronBet announced their Alpha version of the new Poker Game is ready to be tested and will be released. TRONBet is one of the most popular DApps platform in the Tron Community, which started with the DICE game, and after that quickly developed new interesting games. Tronbet is also very popular, since u mine ANTE by playing their games. ANTE can be used to get a daily part of the profit in TRX, of the TRONBet platform. ANTE is doing great on the third-market with a high price and a good volume. And last, the activity on TRONBet is amazing, u never play alone and the community is growing every day.
Therefore it’s no surprise, that the new DApp is Poker. Which is one of the most popular gamble games, since it allows interactions and friends playing together. People have been waiting for this, however PLAY GOC was a week earlier with launching the Poker Game. There were some discussions on Twitter about this. Which ended with a picture, comparing the both of the games. At PLAY GOC u see empty tables, while at TRONBet most tables were filled. And that’s exactly why TRONBet is a long-term and big player in the Tron Ecosystem.
The TRONBet Poker game, allows u to play Poker with your Tronfriends and steal (earn) their TRX with bluffing. U can choose a table, invite your friends, chat with them and at the same time try to win some TRX. The Poker game is very accessible, the Buy-in prices aren’t high so anyone can have shot and play their own league. All the functions, seem already pretty good-working for an ALPHA-version and the interface is very clear, simple and well-designed. It won’t surprise us, if this will become the most played DApp in a few weeks. Everyone loves poker. All funds are held in a smartcontract, so it’s completely decentralized which is awesome. Another benefit is that u don’t need to upload funds to the TRONBet platform, which is the case for example at PLAY GOC. So u keep the control of your funds. Since this is only a BETA, the final version with contain more features that the community will like. TRONBet expects to launch the final version in 7 days.
Before u are going to try out the new DApp, please note that the Tronbet team stated that there still are some bugs since it’s only a BETA and not the final version. In the final version, new features and a design will be integrated. Below, we described a full tutorial to help u started with playing.
