There are several ways to play poker on an Android-based mobile device, and those who really like the game, have probably given most of these options a go. First of all, there are people out there who like video poker (it’s not exactly poker in the “online poker” sense of the word, but it is poker nonetheless). There are apps out there without any sort of links to any casinos which will allow players to play Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better or any other video poker variant for virtual currency. Some of these apps can be downloaded for free, so it’s really a cinch to set up a game like this. Of course, for those better versed in video poker basic and optimal strategy, playing at an online casino for real money is always an appealing proposition. That too is possible of course, as is the playing of play-money video poker at one of the established android casino operators.
Another way to play poker for android is by playing actual Texas Holdem. One option is to play what would basically amount to a computer game, in which the player goes up against the AI. There are such android apps available too, many of them for free as well. Of course, the real deal is when one plays online in various real money games and freerolls, building a bankroll and winning real money at the real money tables.
What’s the smart way to play real money online poker for android though? I can give you a couple a useful pointers in this respect, given that I have quite a bit of experience in the matter. Massive multi table online poker tournaments are not exactly easy to implement for mobile devices at the moment, so I have to regretfully inform all android poker fans that they won’t get the same sort of game selection on their mobile devices as the full client offers. For instance, those using the full online poker client at the world’s largest site will gain automatic access to some extremely interesting freerolls, of which there’s one running pretty much every hour and which make excellent bankroll builders, provided one possesses the skills, the patience and the stamina to beat out several thousand other players for the prizes. Well, these freerolls cannot be accessed by poker for android users and that is quite a shame. What I can recommend in this instance is that you should create a poker account from a laptop or a desktop computer and play in the various freerolls and promotional tournaments from your laptop. Once you reach a stage of bankroll building which has you playing in real money games that you can access from your android device, then you can really start playing poker for android.
Everything considered, at this stage, I’ll have to tell you to combine mobile with PC action when it comes to poker for android for the best possible results. Unlike casino games for iPad, online poker still has a distance to cover before one can say that the mobile experience is just as complete as the regular one.
If you do play poker through your android device, also make sure you’re able to focus on the game and that you’re not distracted by whatever’s going on around you.
