Thread: What's going on here?

    What's going on here?

    While doing the casino rounds looking for Chinese New Year promo decorations I came across a curiosity at PokerStars.

    No not a rat (albeit 2020 is The Year of the Rat), something unexpected on their live casino login page.

    Can you spot it also?

    It's not the first time I've come across such a thing at smaller online casinos, especially those who you might not want to trust your money with.

    But I was surprised to see "it" at a brand as big as PokerStars. You'd be forgiven for thinking the deal with Flutter Entertainment to acquire Stars Group had already gone through.


    ps. there's a hint here what "it" is if you're struggling to spot the elephant in the room.....I know, I know.....where did the elephant come from I thought we were talking about the Year of the Rat just a minute ago

    Could it be lazy use of dealer pics...ie a dealer from a providers NOT used by PokerStars?

    Loos like a familiar Playtech face there

    Congrats LD, you got it in one


    It is indeed Playtech stalwart Alisija. One of a handful of dealers (eg. Sintija, Daina) who always feature as launch dealers for every new table/game in the Riga studio.

    Strange, they even went to the trouble of colouring her dress to match PokerStars’ uniform!

    If they had a dollar for every time their image was used in marketing copy (legitimately or otherwise) at online casinos they could quit their dealing!

    To answer the original query,

    What's going on here?
    ....perhaps the answer is close at hand.


    Players outside of the UK might want to investigate to what extent this is indeed accurate;

    I'm GEO blocked so can't delve much deeper unfortunately.

    Looks like they've joined Bwin and Party Casino in adding the full Playtech range...
