PokerStars and Seven Deuce Gaming have unleashed a hybrid poker/casino mobile app called Casino Rush, and former World Cup legend Ronaldo joins Real Madrid in an ambassadorial capacity.
PokerStars has rolled out their eighth mobile app, and it looks like a beauty. The latest app is called Casino Rush and was developed by the team at Seven Deuce Gaming.
Ali Masterman and Paul Conroy founded the online casino game design company in 2014, and they have offices in the UK and Sri Lanka. Casino Rush is their first foray into social casino game waters, and their games are available in HTML5 and Unity3D.
Both Conroy and Masterman have poker experience, and it shows in the games. Masterman was a professional poker player/staker and worked for the company SharkStaking.com. Conroy is a former session musician who fell in love with poker before founding Stake Me to Play.
It’s a free to play app with the option to purchase in-game bits and pieces ranging from £0.99-£89.99 (I would love to find out what the high end of that scale buys you). The games look like poker has had an orgy with slot machines and casino table games, and this is the Jon Snow of the litter.

The games suit the fast paced mood of mobile perfectly, and you don’t need an Internet connection to play thanks to their offline mode. The Google App page states that online poker tournaments will be coming soon, and I assume these are tournaments based on the current games on offer on the app.
PokerStars other mobile apps include PokerStars Lite, Jackpot Poker, Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars TV, EPT Guide, and the Starscard App.
Ronaldo Joins Real Madrid in Ambassadorial Role
The Ronaldo name thing has just gotten a lot more complicated after the slightly older, pudgier version joined Real Madrid in an ambassadorial capacity last week.
The two PokerStars ambassadors with the same name now work for the same club, after the 39-year old Brazilian agreed to join the club in September where he will take on a global ambassadorial role and an advisory role to the club president, Florentino Perez. The Real Madrid chief signed Ronaldo from Inter Milan for £36.3m in 2002.
Ronaldo appeared in the white of Real Madrid 177 times, scoring 104 goals, placing him into a bracket that not even the tight whites of Cristiano could fit into.
