Sometimes the desire to play a little online poker hits you out of the blue. Having a mobile poker app downloaded on your device allows you to play real money poker games no matter where you are, at any time of day.
It’s no real surprise that the masterminds behind the world’s most prestigious poker tournament, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) have created an app. Today we’re taking a look at what the app offers, and whether it’s worth your time…
Free to play
One thing that attracts us right away, after the fact it’s created by poker’s most recognisable brand, is that it is free to play.
If you happen to be over 21 and living in the US state of Nevada, you can use the app to play for real money. Being free, the app is a great, cost-effective way to improve your game.
Gateway to tournaments
There are certain competitions that you can enter through the app that, if victorious, can grant you entry to WSOP tournaments and events, including the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
What other apps offers that!
While there is a lot to keep you interested, the game is simple to follow and easy to figure out. This means it’s perfect for novice players, as well as those keen to put in the hours to become the best of the best.
The app offers up lots of handy stats on what you’ve won, highest stakes played, and tournament stats. It also offers useful tutorials that walk you through specific aspects of the game to help you iron out any kinks in your style.
You can have the choice between two poker disciplines, both of which are hugely popular in the casino too – old favourite, Texas Hold’em and Omaha.
As these are the most popular choices in real casinos – every game you play on the app is valuable experience that’ll no doubt convert into big wins when you play in real life.
You also get to select the location of your tournament – fancy a little trip to Atlantic City? Or perhaps somewhere a little further afield? Say Paris, or Sydney? As you play, you can unlock new destinations – it’s a great way of keeping players engaged.
Fun added extras
There are lots of added extras that make the app a winner. You can connect to Facebook to unlock some extra features, you’re gifted free chips every four hours, and in-between games you can have a go at mini-slot games.
Whether you’re a poker pro or just starting out, this is a fun and educational app that’ll see you improving your game in no time.
