The Pala Band of Mission Indians, which operates land-based gaming in the state of California, is also a majority owner of gaming company Pala Interactive, LLC and has after working on the site for several years, finally launched its online poker product, Pala Poker, this week.
The online poker room has been operational since Tuesday and is in the beta testing phase.
The online poker site is accepting real money wagers but is in the preliminary stage when it comes to operations. According to njgamblingsites.com, Pala Interactive has announced they will initially offer their proprietary online and mobile poker platform in open beta. During this time, Pala Interactive will be asking players to provide feedback on the site.
CEO of Pala Interactive, Jim Ryan, commented on the soft launch of the site by stating that Pala Interactive is excited to get their poker product launched as they have spent the past three years building a new poker platform in preparation for the launch of state-based online gaming regulations. The company believes that other states will regulate online gaming in the near future and they will be ready to partner up with others to operate poker gaming in other markets.
When visiting the new Pala Poker site, all information is readily available. Even beginner online poker players will be able to see what the site offers with ease, including cash games, tournaments, and promotions. The online gaming option runs seamlessly on mobile devices as well as tablets, on both iOS and Android devices, plus desktop computers like Mac and PC.
New players to Pala are eligible to receive a $50 Welcome Package absolutely free with no deposit required. When making the first deposit, players have the ability to earn a 100% match bonus on as much as $500.
Pala Interactive is no stranger to New Jersey, by working with Borgata Casino and using their gaming license, the company was approved by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement to offer their online casino since 2014, with more than 250 games on offer including slots, craps, video poker and more. The company is now hoping to see the same success with their online poker product.
