In our constant search for new Tron games and casino’s we’ve come across PokerTron , which is , as far as we know, the first site offering Video Poker on the TRX network. The site was launced very recently but has already managed to get a lot of players. Their Telegram group currently has just under 400 members and from the looks of the site’s volume, it appears a lot of them are playing. Total volume for the site was over 26 million TRX in the past 24 hours, placing it 4th after TronBet, TronTrade and Gakex according to DappRadar.com.
As anyone who has ever played Video Poker should know, this game offers the chance for really , really high rewards. Getting a royal flush (10 to ace, same symbol) will pay out 800 to 1, meaning a 100TRX bet can return 80,000 TRX! However, Video Poker is a very high risk game so we would recommend keeping bet sizes limited.
As with most Tron casino’s , PokerTron offers dividends to its players. At the time of writing, the dividend pool is standing at just over 700thousand TRX, which is quite high compared to a lot of its competitors.
On April 8th, PokerTron will release their FOMO jackpot. If no bets over 200TRX are made for 5 minutes, the last person to bet will receive the jackpot. The jackpot is already at 154,000 TRX two days before starting so we expect it to grow quite a bit more. This will be great for the site’s volume as people will battle to win this huge pot.
PokerTron also has another way for people with deep pockets to earn more TRX. By getting certain combinations (which will vary each round), you can climb up the leaderboard. Right now the goal is to get a flush (5 cards of the same symbol) as often as possible. First price currently stands at 77,000 TRX which is around 2,000$ .
Volume for PokerTron has picked up dramatically in recent days. With the FOMO jackpot launching soon we expect volume to continue to grow. Right now, there’s not much in the form of competition as most other sites have opted for games like Dice and Moon. In regular casino’s, Video Poker is often among the most popular games and we see no reason why this would be different for Video Poker on the Tron Network.
Game Graphics & Entertainment 4.5/5
There’s only one game right now (though the site will also feature Black Jack in the future) but it looks really good and it’s a lot of fun. Bonus points for being the first site to have Video Poker have led us to rate this segment of our review 4.5 out of 5!
Game Profitability 3.5/5
Video poker is a risky game. High wins can be gained, but getting a royal flush is extremly rare. We would advise making small bets unless you have an very high risk tolerance and plenty of TRX to spend.
The dividend pool is already quite high, while the reward coins (called PKT) are still cheap to mine. On top of that, there’s a leaderboard and a soon-to-be-launced FOMO game which will get you extra rewards if you bet a lot.
Total Score: 4.3/5
It’s really nice to see a site that doesn’t have the same old games such as Dice, Moon and some kind of spinning wheel. The TRX network really appears to be evolving to something very impressive and it PokerTron looks and feels high quality enough to make us optimistic about its future.
