Pokerdom launches Pineapple OFC Poker with Connective Games
By Gareth Bracken
30th July 2015 – London, UK - Leading Russian-facing online poker site Pokerdom has expanded its existing games offering with the addition Pineapple Open Face Chinese Poker (Pineapple OFC). Pineapple OFC is the new poker craze that’s sweeping the globe, but it’s rarely found in online poker rooms. Connective Games, which prides itself on reacting to new trends in poker, has vowed to change that, by providing Pokerdom with the exciting new poker variant. Connective Games provides its clients with a stable, secure and scalable platform, which can be customized to their specific needs.
As with other poker games, in Pineapple OFC players take turns drawing cards from a single deck, trying to make the best possible hand. Unlike other poker games, however, there are no bets placed during the rounds of play. Instead, the players agree to play “per point” and the game is scored in points.
It’s a game for three players in which every player at a table takes one seat with three boxes for 13 cards: three cards in the front hand (the highest box); five cards in the middle hand, and five cards in the back hand (the lowest box). Players arrange their hands into poker combinations; the back hand must be stronger than or equal to the middle hand and the middle hand must be stronger than or equal to the front hand.
The goal of the game is to achieve more points than your opponents by winning more hands and also by collecting “royalties” on premium hands. These are bonuses awarded along the way for special hand combinations.
Pokerdom has said that the games have been a huge success so far, and the craze for online Pineapple OFC has been embraced by the site’s customers.
“Our Pineapple OFC games have received a great response from players,” said management of Pokerdom. “It’s a variant that has been only been in existence for a couple of years, but is spreading like wildfire. Thanks to our partnership with Connective Games we’re able to use a flexible and scalable platform that can react quickly to trends within the poker world.”
“Connective Games is committed to innovation and to creating as diverse an offering of games as possible, and our platform allows us to develop and integrate new games very quickly. That means we can offer the games that the players and our clients really want”, Konstantin Zubarev, CEO at Connective Games.
