Mediarex Experiments With New Game Called HoldemX Which Combines Texas Holdem And eSport Concepts

Mediarex Sports & Entertainment has focussed during the last couple of years of launching innovative projects that will increase the popularity of poker across the world and sportify its image. The company launched the American Poker Awards for the first time in 2014 and is expected to introduce the Global Poker League for the first time in 2016, a tournament that is being promoted as the poker world cup. Mediarex has also been working on another project called HoldemX.macau gaming tables

This new project is an innovative online game that combines that best of the online poker industry and that of the eSports industry. The HoldemX website is currently in beta stage and is being tested by some of the top online poker players and eSport gamers.

Alex Dreyfus, the CEO of Mediarex decided to create this new concept after he noticed that the eSports industry was growing exponentially with games like Magic: The Gathering, Hearthstone and SolForge gaining immense popularity with young gamers and also being successful in attracting online poker players.

Dreyfus asked his team to incorporate the best from both worlds but taking the popular Texas Holdem version as a base and bringing in some of the best features from games like Hearthstone and Magic. The new HoldemX game has a strong foundation in online poker but also has a number of interesting wildcards, bonuses and wild gameplay. Dreyfus believes that HoldemX has the right concepts to attract new players from the $1.2 billion eSports industry and stir the interests of former poker players who have lost interest in the traditional $3.5 billion online poker industry.

In a statement, Dreyfus said “Since October, the game’s mechanisms has been tested by dozens of the most advanced poker players in the world and top players from games like Hearthstone and Magic The Gathering. We believe we have the right foundation here from which to build a great franchise, one that will connect these communities and expose poker-­based gaming as a viable esport property.

The company raised over $4.9 million in venture capital funding to put this project together and so far Mediarex has been happy with the beta phase of the project. Mediarex recently took HoldemX live and plans to soon make the game available on Android and iOS platforms in the near future. The game is currently being offered as a free to play version but does have in game purchases if users would like to change up their deck designs.
