Mobile poker operator Switch Poker today launches its redesigned website complete with a ground breaking gamification of online poker.
Easier to navigate and with a fresh new style the site now offers players a fun new way to compete against each other where they will now be awarded medals for achievements and milestones at the site including number of days played, big hands, stakes played, win rate etc...
Each player's medal tally is displayed when they take their seat at a Switch Poker table and on their account page. The players with the greatest number of medals will be shown on the medals leaderboard page.
A spokesperson for Switch Poker said, "Players who achieve greatness will receive medals, some will carry home bronze, some silver. The truly great players will bring home the gold!
"Medals can be awarded for making specific effort in a few poker disciplines but only the greatest players can get to the top of that leaderboard. Will you be able to get there?"
A list of all the current medal categories is available at the medals page and disciplines will be added regularly so there is always something new to compete for.
In other industries, gamification has proved successful in increasing customer interest in otherwise mundane tasks. The gamification of an already exciting game, online real money poker, may prove to be a very appealing prospect for poker players.
Players can find out more at the Switch Poker Blog.
