Zynga Live Poker – The Best iPhone Poker App?

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 06, 2011 7:49 pm

If you are one of the millions of people who have jumped on the
online poker bandwagon in the last few years, you have probably already
(unsuccessfully) looked around for an iPhone app that lets you play Texas Hold’em
online. Unfortunately – due to Apple’s stance on online gambling –
there are no official poker clients in the app store that allow for
real-money poker.
Still, even Apple knows the value of a good poker app for the iPhone,
as is clearly demonstrated by Apple’s in-house developed “Texas
Hold’em” app. While this poker app looks great and implements the
iPhone’s UI admirably, it is also fairly limited. It bears little
resemblance to the “real” online poker experience – although it’s
possible to play against some of your friends over Wi-Fi.
If you want a poker app where you get to play with thousands of other
players online, have a look at “Live Poker” by Zynga instead; it offers
Facebook integration and an interface that closely resembles the ones
you’ll find in regular online poker rooms. Of course, there is no option
to play for real money or play in Titan Poker freerolls,
but you do get to play in a very online poker-like environment for pure
entertainment purposes, which might be good enough. With enough
practice you could even consider entering the 2010 World Series of
As with all free poker games where no money is involved, there is no
real challenge to be found in Live Poker – you get a reasonably sized
stack to start with, plus you may add more every time you play. But
that’s the nature of play-money poker – with nothing to lose; you
usually don’t play good poker. This is fine if you’re just looking for
entertainment, but don’t think that you’ll do just as well in real poker
even if you make millions with Zynga Live Poker.
Admittedly, there are no new or unique special features in Zynga’s
Live Poker, but it builds on the tried and tested, user-friendly Texas
Holdem recipe that you find online. Zynga has done a nice job in
adapting this experience to the iPhone. If you have played any poker
game before, you will be able to navigate Live Poker’s interface with
ease. A bell will tell you when it’s your turn to act, and you get to
chat with the other players at the table, or buy them a virtual drink to
celebrate your big wins.
In all, Zynga Live Poker
is definitely one of the best ways to play poker on the iPhone while we
wait for a real-money poker client to come along, which may
unfortunately never happen.

Zynga Live Poker requires the iPhone 2.0 software update and is compatible with both the iPhone & iPod Touch.
