About

Step onto the casino floor, where playing big could mean winning big. Split across 6 different tables, each requiring more skill and determination than the last, Pure Hold’em brings all the excitement of the high stakes casino to the convenience of your couch.

Starting at the Jokers table on the floor of the vibrant casino; work your way up to the esteemed Aces and Masters tables in the VIP penthouse.

Buy your way into a game with earned credits, play your blinds, or go all in – whatever it takes to steal the pot and win the game.

If Lady Luck is on your side, you could win big and get the chance to enter a higher level table. The higher you go, the higher the stakes and the bigger the pot.

Pure Hold'em reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Review of "Pure Hold ' Em" [German] Well, I'm not sure yet what to make of the Release. As the Name suggests, this is a poker game by VooFoo Studios from England. Let's Get to the positive Aspects of the Game first. This Game builds a great Atmosphere because you're in a Casino here and it looks nice. Pure Hold 'Em Offers full Controller support, making the Gameplay very enjoyable. The Soundtrack doesn't have to hide, because the Music also contributes a lot to the Atmosphere, where we can choose between different Genres. We have the Choice between "Big Band," "Blues," "Hip Hop," "Funk," "Jazz," "Elektro" or "Alle" (Coincidence). There is a bit Of choice in The Appearance of the Deck of cards (3 different), the chip sets (3 different), Table Colors (10 Colors) and Fabric patterns (11 Patterns). There is the Option of yourself in the Future (not yet available) if you also want to buy more. I suppose in the Form of a DLC. So Far so good. You can buy Credits/Chips if You need to. Which, in my Opinion, cost quite a lot, for a Game that already costs € 20 when You buy it. But This should not be deterred, as you get to Credits very quickly & easily. We have the Opportunity to make a High/Low game once a day, where it's all about predicting whether the next Card is higher or deeper than the one before it. There you can make up to 18,000 Credits a Day. If this is not enough, we also have the Opportunity to sit down at a "Table of Jokers," which does not cost us credits and earn us a little Credits there. Credits/Chips Cost £10,000 £2,99 100,000 £4.99 1,000 £4.99 1,000 ' 000 £ 5.99 10,000 $19.99 The AI in this Game is not really predictable as it usually plays very strange. But Poker is a Gamble. So it can be that the AI with a 2-person Pair sometimes goes All-In or with 2 Aces on hand only places the Minimum Bet. Unfortunately, we also don't have the Opportunity to talk to other Players at the Table, except for the always activated Voice Over. There is no Attitude to it in the Game itself. This is simply taken over by Steam. I.e. You should decide beforehand whether you want to turn On Voice or not and this before you start the Game in the Steam Settings. Push-to-Talk will be tasted here in vain, as it just sends all the Time. Unfortunately, there is also a chat box missing here, where you could communicate in writing. Since the 2nd Day after the Release, there have Been problems in Europa/Germany, unfortunately also with the "Table of the Joker" & "Table of the Jacks," if you want to use them Online. There you have no Connection to the "Pure Hold ' Em" servers. So my Conclusion is: For real Poker Fans, I can't recommend this yet. The negative Aspects are still very serious and there is a lack of Community playing this Game. For casual players like me who have a desire for a Round of Poker every now And then and Groups that own 8 People, it's all worth a Recommendation. We'll wait and see what the Future looks like. If there is anything new to report, I will revisit this Review. I hope I could give you a little Insight into the Game.
