After an accidental leak two weeks ago that saw it go live for a few hours, 888poker has officially launched “Flopomania,” a Texas hold’em game that eliminates betting before the flop. The game is being marketed as the perfect alternative for those “bored of waiting for the game to really get going” and has been live on 888poker’s site since Sunday.
Players still place an ante and are dealt hole cards, but the first betting round is skipped over and the flop is immediately shown. The player on the left of the dealer is called the “First to Act” player and the game continues as usual from there.
The altered format makes traditional hold’em faster paced and more action packed — placing less importance on the value of hole cards and changing the value of flop hands.
The company says the game “falls directly in line with 888poker’s desire to create a playing environment that is full of fun and excitement.”
The website has also come out with a spin off called “Push or Fold Flopomamia.” This game is even simpler: it has a pre-set betting amount and all the player must do is decide whether to push or fold. There is only one opportunity to bet during each hand, and a player can fold or call the push amount. If no one in the hand has bet before it reaches the player, they can fold or check. Once a player has placed a bet, they can’t place any more during the same hand.
Last week, 888poker released a short trailer for Flopmania on Twitter. Click here to watch.
