Mobile is now involved in pretty much all you can think of in terms of gambling – casino, poker, bingo… you name it. It has been some time since the App Store has been overwhelmed by the growing amount of poker apps, most of which are focused on competitive play. Tournaments are nothing new in the world of online poker – they’ve been around since the success of the first online casinos that have made their debut back in the 90s and they are a constant drive for card players around the world for making some quick cash.
The mobile market has welcomed the change and diversity poker brings to the table and there is an ever growing need for high quality poker apps that sate the thirst of the increasing mobile poker populace. You can already find a nice selection of poker apps that offer live poker matches through dedicated tournaments and poker rooms. Leo Vegas casino is available as an app on your mobile phone and you can check their excellent take on various games for your mobile device.
Let’s have a look at some of the best poker apps available out there and what they have on offer for the average Joe and hardcore pro:
DH Texas Poker
Let’s start things over with an excellent poker app that combines several interesting play styles of the standard poker experience and turns them on their head. DH Texas Poker allows for casual play through several game modes, though the action really picks up when you join one of the online multiplayer tournaments. Most of them are of the Sit-and-go variety so you won’t have any problem adjusting even if you are just starting.
The interface is clear cut and there aren’t many unnecessary options cluttering the screen and obstructing the action. You can create an account or log in with your Facebook profile if you have one. Overall, this is an excellent app for competitive players as well as those who want to focus on solo play for practice.
WSOP (World Series of Poker)
If you are a poker fan then you ought to have heard the acronym WSOP which stands for the World Series of Poker. It is the world’s largest poker organization for player tournaments and of course, they have their own poker smartphone app. While not as exciting looking as similar apps, the WSOP has something that none of the competitors have – a chance for the players to take active participation in one of their world series tournaments.
Similarly like the WSOP events, you will be playing with other players in either Omaha or Texas Hold’em, and you can participate in Sit and go or tournament format styles. The matches are quick and frantic and it is very easy to get into, pro or not.
One of the biggest online poker powerhouses in the world has their own dedicated mobile app and it is quite something. Most apps on this list have a large following but PokerStars Poker is just teeming with players at all times. You can participate in tournaments or hit the tables on your own. A slight hick up that we may point out is that when you enter the menu the game is in vertical mode and when playing it goes horizontal which is kind of weird. Otherwise, the interface, the log in and the animations are all smooth and worth your stay.
