The online poker industry has been facing challenges since its inception. Granted, back in 1999, when Paradise was the only poker site in town, things were easy. They remained easy until 2006, when the UIGEA made it almost impossible for poker sites to serve US players.
Through the years, several models have garnered attention, three of which persist today. The real money gambling which until very recently, was not allowed in the US, now allowed in New Jersey and Nevada, the membership based poker, and the FB reliant free to play pokers.
Of the 3, only free to play operations can openly sell themselves on the internet, membership sites must comply with sweepstakes laws in most states.
PokerRebel has decided on a completely new model for poker and is betting that the recreational online poker players, those who do not really want to risk their hard earned money, and those who do not want to spend their money, will absolutely love the new model.
A role playing war game using poker as a means to settle battles. With armies battling for supremacy and individuals fighting for top rankings. It costs nothing to join PokerRebel and players are not obligated to ever spend money to rise in the ranks. It is the speed which with you can rise that sets the paying members apart from the non-paying members. The excitement never stops at PokerRebel as players vie for the top spot in tournaments and ring games.
Playing on software just like the real pros play, PokerRebel players will find that the only difference between playing for real money and playing at PokerRebel is the fact that your money will not be at risk. The PokerRebel software will not bombard you with constant ads like you find on FB games and the layout and feel of the software is by far much more professional than even some popular pro sites. Downloadable like professional player's software, PokerRebel is poised to bring a new edge to the poker world.
Cole Gibson, General Manager over at PokerRebel exudes confidence in the new model as well as the capacity of their software to carry the industry into newly uncharted territory by saying; "Playing at PokerRebel is like playing at any real money site, without the risk and the worry that your money is going to get eaten by sharks. While at the same time you're building this army that you can use to grow within the game, obtain power that other players only dream about and win fantastic prizes”.
PokerRebel software (pokerrebel.com) is owned and developed by the Scion Poker Network which has three sites who are being converted, at time of this writing into the same role playing model that PokerRebel will follow.
