Online poker players in New Jersey had been eagerly waiting for an opportunity to play online poker on their mobile devices. Now, thanks to Party Poker’s mobile app, which is currently compatible with iOS devices only, players can play poker and win real money prizes while on the move.
OnlinePokerReport.com recently published a report, according to which players in New Jersey can now take part in Party Poker’s online poker games on the move through their iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. Bwin.party Entertainment Limited is the company responsible for this app, which enables poker players to play poker for real money irrespective of their location.
To use the app, players should first download it on their iOS devices. Once they have done so, they have to choose from the following options—real money, fast forward, play money, and preview. If players select the real money option, they will be able to play cash poker games at $25/$50 stakes. If players choose the fast forward option, they will be able to play fast forward cash poker games at $5/10 stakes. FastForward Poker is Party Poker’s variant of high-speed poker, giving players the opportunity to fold bad hands and move on to the next game at lightening speeds.
Players might wonder about the quality of Party Poker Mobile games. But they will be amazed to discover that the mobile poker app features smooth game play and crystal clear graphics.
However, the app is still is the initial phase of development. Players, therefore, will not be able to take part in Party Poker tournaments and Sit ‘N’ Gos. Besides, Party Poker mobile poker games are available for real money only as the play money option doesn’t function. If players select the play money option, they will get a “currently unavailable” message.
Obviously, Party Poker plans to include additional features to its app in the near future. Party Poker must have released their mobile poker app before developing it fully just to give New Jersey’s poker-starved players a chance to play their favorite game on their mobile devices. Although players are happy to get a mobile poker app, their reviews of the app in the App Store are rather lukewarm, indicating that they are not happy about the absence of tournament play in the app.
888 Poker and WSOP.com have already released mobile apps into New Jersey’s newly regulated market, and Borgata Poker is expected to launch one soon.
