|Includes: Fuego Enterprises, Inc. (FUGI)

Face Up Entertainment Group, a reality gaming social network company, has launched internal testing on Super Turbo Poker as it moves the game toward make-ready for its members. The company's online version is meant to stimulate competition and intensity at a faster pace than general poker games.

Turbo poker tournaments, also called speed tournaments, put an alternative twist on traditional poker tournaments by accelerating overall play time. Blinds are increased every three-to-five minutes, reducing the amount of time each player has to act.

"For players who already tend to act decisively and better under pressure, the Turbo offering in tournament style will make a great addition to our existing platform," Face Up CEO Felix Elinson stated in the press release. "Online poker tournaments which are played under Turbo conditions move along at an increased pace and have unique advantages over other tournament which can drag on for a couple of hours. This creates a more action packed, intense type of poker tournament where people have to act quickly."

Elinson said the company's initiatives are designed with both current and new gamers in mind.

"It is our intention to continuously expand the company's offerings and we anticipate that these new games will open new opportunities for those players who prefer games outside of the regular pace of Texas Holdem. We are hopeful that the addition of these games will help the company attract new members to our community," Elinson stated.

Face Up's platform is being used to create a global gaming network of games originating from every region of the globe, supporting native languages and even cross language functionality. The company stops short of offering gambling opportunities and instead focuses on the social aspect of the platform.

"Our goal is to maintain the thrill of online games while keeping it safe for everyone. Our social networking functionality provides the user base with the ability to grow their circle of friends beyond those they physically reach day to day," Elinson stated. "Our users sit down to play a game and more often than not leave making a connection with a stranger which is then maintained via our social network functionalities."
