Real money poker app launched

Friday, 21 January 2011

Players in the UK who need a poker fix while on the move can now take part in real money games on their Android and iPhone smartphones.

Gaming giant bwin launched the iPhone app yesterday with users in the UK and Austria the first to benefit. The site hopes to roll out the app to players in Europe in the near future.

'Thanks to the bwin iPhone poker app, our customers can, for the first time ever, show what they've got in the world's biggest poker network via the popular iPhone platform', said Berthold Kao, who is in charge of Product Management RNG & Mobile at bwin.

Android users won't miss out either with the Microgaming network announcing that a new app is set to be released in the first quarter of 2011. Lydia Melton, Head of Poker at Microgaming, said: “For years now, industry experts have speculated on the mobile market’s possibilities for gaming, and every year has proven disappointing in terms of customer uptake and variety of software, particularly for poker; that is about to change. The technology is ready, the software is ready, and we believe the players are ready as well. The future is here. We are extremely excited about this release.”
