With the development of mobile technology came the introduction of mobile poker platforms, and a change in how poker fans played their game. Not everyone has the time to physically sit behind a computer and play poker when they feel like doing so, and playing the game on a mobile device was the answer to this problem. Today, players can whip out their mobile devices, such as mobile phones, Androids, iPhones or iPads and check out the action, play real money poker games and take part in tournaments – no matter where they are.
Mobile poker is as simple as it gets, requiring nothing much else than a basic knowledge of the game, playing funds and a device that will support your favorite mobile poker software. Your mobile device should have unlimited internet transfer and so it is good to check out the different packages to find your best deal. Make sure that your internet connection is secure to avoid problems. Also, make sure that your phone is compatible with the online poker room and the software you want to download.
The next step is to shop around for the best mobile poker platform. If you like what you see online, check to see if the poker room has a mobile offering. In this way, you’ll know that the mobile poker room has the backing of a good online poker room, and you’ll also be familiar with the software. Read up on reviews and ask your poker buddies for recommendations as well.
The downloaded mobile poker software will allow you to get in on the action in absolutely no time, and you can opt – in most cases – to play for free or for real money. Pick a mobile device with a large screen for the best results, although most mobile poker packages take into account that you’re playing on a smaller screen than a computer screen and therefore adapt the software accordingly.
Make sure that you take advantage of the excellent bonuses and promotions offered to newcomers to mobile poker, as well as those returning to fund their accounts. You may need to enter a code in order to start using the bonus, but it’s worth those extra few seconds because in most cases you’ll be offered free mobile poker money – the perfect way to test drive the games and platform and decide for yourself about the product.
There are certain things that make a good mobile poker platform, which are worth looking out for. The mobile poker should offer excellent graphics to make game playing as realistic and entertaining as possible. The sign up bonus and subsequent bonuses should be generous and convenient, without unrealistic wagering conditions. The game range should also be good, with the opportunity to play mobile Texas Hold ‘em, mobile Omaha, mobile Seven Card Stud, etc. Your choice should also include no limit, pot limit and fixed limit games and tournaments around the clock – for the best mobile poker experience around.
