The popularity of poker is growing every day all over the world. Poker players try to devote as much time as possible to the game in order to improve themselves in poker and get additional profit. Unfortunately, we cannot spend all the time in front of the monitor of our stationary computer. Therefore, the popularity of mobile poker applications has been growing lately. Now you can spend your free time on the road, in queues on your favorite game, playing poker on smartphone or mobile phone.
However, the development of mobile versions of poker rooms has been slowed down so far. This is largely due to the fact that many phones do not yet support a fully functional poker game. Therefore, there are very few alternatives for playing poker for money via a mobile phone. Existing applications also require expensive and functional models.
Poker rooms for money
We already mentioned this type of game at the beginning. Usually the creators of such poker applications are poker rooms already known in the classic online version. Such applications differ from standard software in slightly reduced functionality. The main concept – the ability to gamble with players from all over the world – remains unchanged.
To play, you will need a mobile phone that supports this function, an account in the poker room and the ability to access the Internet. When choosing a phone, you should pay special attention to the quality and size of the screen, otherwise you can simply get confused in your own maps.
Mobile Poker vs. Computer
These games are usually very simple and primitive. In them you have to play against one or several virtual opponents with artificial intelligence. Usually, such poker software can be downloaded in java format to almost any poker phone. Of course, you won’t win money in this option, but to while away your free time, it is quite suitable.
Mobile poker via Bluetooth
There are different versions of poker software that allow you to play with friends via Bluetooth or infrared. Such games are distinguished by more intelligent artificial intelligence, the ability to participate in multiple live opponents and conduct tournaments. One of the most famous of these applications is the Realdice Multiplayer Championship.
Bwin mobile poker room
Now let’s take a closer look at the mobile poker rooms that give us the opportunity to play for real money. Let’s start with the most popular poker room for phones today – Bwin. It is worth noting that this software offers us various game options, including playing with bots in offline mode, as well as playing with live opponents for play money or real money.
There are only two types of poker – limit and no-limit hold’em, but this is not bad for the mobile version. The software is easy to use and has retained the main options of “large rooms” – the use of a filter when searching for tables, the ability to control using the specified keys, the use of a four-color deck and even viewing statistics.
Especially note that the Bwin Poker Pro app is truly mobile and weighs less than 300 KB. To activate a mobile account, a simple authorization via SMS is used. More than 15,000 players are already using mobile poker all over the world. The game is supported on all major phone models.
This poker room offers a game both for candy wrappers and for real money. Unfortunately, mobile poker at Ultimatebet is not yet very popular among poker players. Therefore, sometimes it can be very difficult to find tables with an active cash game. The developers offer users two versions – for mobile phones and for PDAs. The latter looks more advanced.
Aces Royal Poker
Since Aces Royal Poker was originally conceived as a poker room for mobile devices, it managed to successfully combine functionality and convenience. High-speed game, high-quality picture distinguish this room among similar ones. We also note the possibility of playing at different rates in limit and no-limit hold’em, hand history and chat.
RedKings Mobile application works on modern models of cell phones that support 3G technology. Commission fees and bonuses are calculated in the same way as in the computer version of the game. An important difference between RedKings Mobile is the ability to play not only against mobile opponents, but also against opponents playing on the computer in the standard version.
The future of mobile poker
There is no doubt that in poker mobile applications will develop as rapidly as in other areas of our life. The most famous poker room in the world PokerStars has already announced the development of a mobile version of the software. The prospects of this direction are obvious, but so far poker via phone is far from a computer option.
