World’s largest poker site announced launch of smartphone app for British players.
PokerStars, the world’s largest poker site, has launched a mobile app for the UK market. The app will allow British players (Northern Ireland excluded) to play poker through their iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android mobile devices.
PokerStars Mobile Poker App
The PokerStars British mobile poker app is now on the market, and can be used to play real money or simulation games, depending on what your preferences is. Current version of poker available on the app are Texas Hold’em and Omaha Poker, with more on the horizon in the near future.
Other app features include a choice between cash games, sit ‘n’ go’s, Sunday Majors and scheduled tournaments. Players will be given the ability to compete at more than one table simultaneously, just as is the case on the online poker version they access from their desktop.
In fact, mobile players will compete directly against the 150,000 online players who can be found at PokerStars at any given time. This way, you won’t feel the different between mobile poker and online poker, aside from the fact it allows you to play from wherever you are – even if you’re on public transport or holidays.
‘Transport the way you play’
PokerStars Mobile will transform where and when to play poker, as it offers access to the biggest tournaments and best cash games even when you’re not sitting in front of the computer, PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree told the website of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour.
Boeree added that he planned to practise for all the upcoming UKIPT events from the comfort of his own smartphone, and we know thousands of other British poker players will be doing the same.
