We'd like to extend a massive congratulations to El Blakeo for being the first Prominence Poker player on Xbox One to reach the game's current level cap! Like all Xbox One players, El Blakeo started playing when the game debuted on August 16, and in the week since that time, El Blakeo not only reached level 310, but also reached Rank 3 in both Hearts and Clubs Affiliations! 
How'd he do it? El Blakeo says the key is playing lots of $100 buy-in head to head games, always having a table item equipped for the 10 percent Rep bonus, and playing when the in-game events are offering even more Rep bonuses (see our Calendar for more info on that). He also says racing up the leaderboards against FIGMENT79, one of the other highest-ranked Xbox One players, helped to keep things focused. "She was definitely the hardest to best and inspired me to go all the way," El Blakeo told us.
Perhaps most impressively, El Blakeo did all of this without spending a single dime on Prominence Poker. Like we say, the game is free-to-play, but absolutely not pay-to-win, and El Blakeo's rapid leaderboard climb proves as much.
It's been about a week since Prominence Poker debuted on the Xbox One and we couldn't possibly be happier with how things are going. Players have been absolutely flooding into the game since the moment it was available for download, and we can't thank you enough for your support!
However, what we can do is share with you all some very important numbers that demonstrate exactly why we're constantly high-fiving one another here in the studio:
Number of Prominence Poker players on Xbox One who have already surpassed level 100: 28 Tournaments played since launch: 48,093 Chips spent on Avatar Customization items: 732,947,250 If those chips were stacked vertically, they'd create a tower that stretches 1,540 miles into the air, or could wrap around the moon almost 1.5 times. Chips bet in multiplayer Ring Games: 2,856,552,433 That's enough chips to cover the entire length of the Amazon River 1.5 times over. Like I said, these numbers have absolutely annihilated our expectations, and with the PlayStation 4 version of Prominence Poker launching today, the future looks very bright for our game -- which is good news for players, as it gives us more freedom to build on the solid base we've created with more content, more polish, and additional technical enhancements. 
We'll have more on our future plans very soon, but for now -- and at the risk of sounding repetitive -- thank you all for enjoying Prominence Poker!
PlayStation 4 owners hoping for an authentic, engrossing, and most importantly, fun poker experience will be happy to hear that Prominence Poker is now available on PlayStation 4 in the US for the low, low price of “absolutely free to play.” Don't worry, European players, you'll have access to the game within the next 24 hours.
Prominence Poker invites would-be card sharps to the city of Prominence to seek their fame and fortune in high stakes poker games amidst the sort of crooked folks who populate a city built on fat chip stacks, luck, and human greed. Only by defeating the cunning, cutthroat factions of Prominence can players earn the opportunity to go up against “The Mayor” – the mysterious town founder, who controls both the city’s bankroll and its intimidating muscle.
Thanks to the input of four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Max Pescatori, Prominence Poker offers PlayStation 4 players the most legitimate poker gameplay available on the console. Boasting gorgeously seedy locations, intricate character customization, and unprecedented, high-stakes poker action, Prominence Poker provides unparalleled immersion, whether you’re playing against computer-controlled players in singleplayer, or placing bets against other people in Prominence Poker’s competitive online multiplayer modes. Daily events, regular tournaments, and a host of unlockable outfits and table items ensure players will return to the tables over and over again in the hopes of striking it rich.
You can download Prominence Poker at no cost by visiting the PlayStation Store on your PlayStation 4 console, or via web browser at

Not only are Xbox One owners now able to enjoy Prominence Poker for the first time, but we've also had our first Steam Early Access player reach both the current level cap and the current Affiliation Rank cap!
To date, BL1P has reached level 310 and worked his way through all three ranks of both the Hearts and Clubs Affiliations, earning every Affiliation-exclusive reward along the way. Despite this impressive feat, BL1P also finds the time to be one of the most active users of the Prominence Poker Steam forums.
We'd like to thank BL1P for his passion for Prominence Poker, and we wish him a hearty congratulations on this accomplishment!
