The initial site launch promotes the Chicagoland Original Hooters stores. Games are completely free‐to‐play. There are multiple tournaments each day, with free prizes provided by Hooters, Heartland Poker Tour, Majestic Star Casino, BLUFF Magazine, Pro Poker Gear, and Blue Shark Optics.

"Hooters is one of the world's most recognizable brands, and response to the test launch of their free‐to‐play poker platform has been phenomenal," said Jeff Amrein, Amber Gaming founder and CEO. "If you're an Illinois resident looking for a fun, competitive, and a community‐driven poker experience with great prizing, HootersPokerOnline.com is for you."

Amber Gaming, creator of HogWildPoker.com, is the original online poker league community. Conceived initially as a way to allow players to gather their friends for fun virtual and conversational home games, the site has expanded to become the premier provider of player‐created leagues.
