Mobile Poker: Why Should You Play?

Does your busy schedule hamper your poker time? Do you wish you could feel the thrill of the flop when you’re away from the comfort of home? Well, worry no more, as mobile poker is the answer! With most of the major sites now offering you the chance to play for real money simply using your mobile device, there’s no excuse to miss that big tournament or break that hot winning streak ever again.

Now, if you played mobile poker a few years ago, you are probably dismissing the first paragraph as complete rubbish. And nobody can blame you, as the offerings a few years ago were basic, unappealing and nothing like the experiences found on regular online sites. This is not the case anymore though, as the big players – sites like Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker – have realised that the clamour for good mobile poker can’t be ignored any longer. Here’s the three big reasons to download a mobile poker app today…

Exciting Formats

For example, there’s Rush Poker from Full Tilt Poker, which moves you to a new hand as soon as you fold, therefore meaning there’s no more waiting around for the hand to finish (although this might not please the purists too much). Pokerstars also offer their own version of this, called Zoom Poker, which is heavily endorsed by poker superstar Daniel Negreanu. You’ll also be able to play less popular forms of poker on your mobile, such as Omaha, Razz and 2-7 Triple Draw, all of which have their own quirks and require specific skills.

So, whatever form of poker you love, you’ll now almost certainly be able to find it on your tablet, smartphone or other mobile device!

Compatible With All Devices

There’s often a common misconception that all mobile games are made simply for those with the iPhone, and those without often think they will be short-changed in terms of quality and availability. This is simply not true when it comes to mobile poker though, as most of the major sites have made a concerted effort to accommodate those with both Android and Windows phones as well. If you do ever have any issues with the way the games are working, all the sites have comprehensive help sections to assist you.

Of course, while they are compatible with all mobile operating systems, the way in which a poker site looks will depend on the quality of the phone itself. Therefore, those with larger screens and better graphics will find the experience to be an even better one – Samsung Galaxy Note owners should be very happy about this!

Earn Money on the Go

The amount you can win on a mobile device is now nearly as high as standard online poker – although your skill level and dedication will be the deciding factor when it comes to how much you’ll actually win. Just know this though: if you keep checking back regularly, we’ll bring you tips and advice about how to maximise your profits, which could lead to your lunch-breaks being more profitable than the rest of your day at work!

That’s all for now, but make sure you check out the different sections of this site, so you can find the best places to play mobile poker on your tablet or smartphone…
