If you’re a PokerStars VR player, there are some new features to look forward to this week.
From today you’ll be able to:
It means there’s a new competitive edge to VR poker.
Jeff Lande is the CEO of Lucky VR, PokerStars VR’s virtual reality developer. He goes through the new updates in the video below.
The VR Sit & Gos will be familiar to regular PokerStars players. But if you’re new to the game, here’s a rundown of how they work.
And remember, if you prefer to play for free, you still can. You’ll still enjoy weekly bankroll resets when you drop below 10,000 chips, and up to three wheel spins a day.
You’ll also be able to host your own Sit & Gos. Set up a table and invite friends. Or just open it up and see who stops by.
You get to choose the structure, the buy-in, as well as the number of players.
The option to buy more chips gives you more options on how to play.
You can grind your way into the bigger games, or you can boost your bankroll and jump straight into Wyatt’s game, with its $1 million buy-in.
And to help with that, you can take advantage of a 100% bonus on any chips you buy. It’s like a double up before you’ve even played a hand.
Here’s how it works.

Remember, it’s only available for a limited time. So start building your bankroll now.
There’s more to it than winning chips.
Each week the leader board winners for both Sit & Gos and cash games will receive exclusive winners’ rings. It’s the kind of virtual bling that marks you out as a champion in the VR world.
Each tier of leader board awards a different type of ring.
$5k – Bronze Tier Ring
$20k – Silver Tier Ring
$100k – Gold Tier Ring
$1M – Iridescent Tier Ring
It’s all part of the new features on PokerStars VR and you can read more about them on the VR homepage.
There you’ll find details of how to start playing VR Sit & Gos as well as how to set up your own game.
You’ll also find details of the “no props” option, and “privacy bubble”. And of current leader boards, and what it takes to win one of those champions rings.
Don’t forget to take advantage of those bonus chips. And look out for more features on the way soon.
