There’s a new free poker game on Xbox 360 today, as Microsoft Studios and Caesars Interactive Entertainment — yes, that Caesars — has just released World Series of Poker Full House Pro for free on Xbox Live. World Series of Poker Full House Pro is an updated version of the existing Xbox Live Arcade game Full House Poker.
World Series of Poker Full House Pro players can build their virtual bankrolls by competing against opponents on Xbox Live from around the world. No, none of it actually involves real-world cash, but with Microsoft Points going the way of the dodo, maybe you can place fake bets for Microsoft Points rather than real-world currency.
While the money may not be real, the in-game casinos are, in fact, based on real-world casinos. Actual World Series of Poker on ESPN announcers Lon McEachern and Norman Chad also provide commentary during play, giving the impression that gamers are actually playing on ESPN in the World Series of Poker.
World Series of Poker Full House Pro players receive a free stack of chips each day to kick-start their climb up the leaderboard. Or precipitate their fall down it, as happened with several DailyGame staffers once we played with people who were actually good at Poker. That’s liable to happen in World Series of Poker Full House Pro as well, since players can challenge players at any level they wish.
World Series of Poker Full House Pro is available on Xbox Live Arcade immediately as a free download. If you haven’t already filled-up the hard drive on your Xbox 360 (or your Cloud Storage account), this is a good option to eat some of that remaining space.
