SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment, announced that Zynga Poker, the world’s largest free-to-play mobile poker game, is launching a new competitive feature, Leagues: World Champions. Starting this week, Zynga Poker’s most ambitious players can now compete head-to-head for a spot on the new World Champion Leaderboard as one of the game’s top players.
In Leagues: World Champions, players will win their way through five different divisions, where they must compete weekly to level up through a points-based progression system. As players win more hands, they’ll advance through each division with the goal of earning a coveted spot on the World Champion Leaderboard, a new live feature that highlights the top 500 players in real-time rankings. With each new victory, players will be awarded with exclusive perks, like extra chips from Lucky Bonus Spins and Prize Chests, and special badges the top 500 players can proudly display while at the virtual tables.
Zynga Poker is one of the most popular poker games in the world and now has more ways for players to compete than ever before. Designed to play like a real table experience, the Texas Hold ‘Em Poker game lets players participate in a Sit-N-Go game, Spin and Win tournament mode or a cash table game to win big with up to nine players and fast or slow style settings. For over 14 years, Zynga Poker has developed a strong community supported by a VIP program, which allows players to earn benefits and features by reaching higher tiers with exclusive chip package offerings and special game modes.
