When it was introduced in 2005, mobile poker wasn’t exactly the best experience for players. Granted, this was a new experience, but few players appreciated the poor graphics, limited stakes and faulty gameplay. Thankfully, this is far from the case today. Mobile poker 2016 offers a vastly different setup than what players saw a decade, or even five years ago. This being said, let’s discuss some of the wonderful changes that you can expect with regard to the mobile poker world today.
Excellent Graphics and Gameplay
Remember the bad graphics and gameplay that we just mentioned? Well neither of these factors are anything close to an issue today! Whether you’re playing mobile poker through a smartphone or tablet, you can count on stellar visuals and uninterrupted play – provided you don’t lose service of course. This is very similar to what you’d expect while playing online poker through a PC or Mac.
More In-Play Options
Up until 2012, most mobile poker sites were very limited in the features that they offered players. The idea of multi-tabling on your smartphone was an almost laughable thought several years ago, due to the lack of mobile developments. But these days, you can multi-table at a lot of mobile poker rooms. Some of the features that you can look forward to include changing avatars and table backgrounds, player statistics, hand histories, bet-sliding bars, the chat function and more. Again, you won’t notice much difference when moving from your PC to a wireless device, aside from a smaller screen.
Special Mobile Poker Bonuses
What better way to encourage players to use a mobile product than to offer them special bonuses!? Some poker rooms offer deposit bonuses that are solely dedicated to wireless players. And all you need to do is make a deposit on the mobile site to take advantage of these exclusive rewards. Of course, you’ll also have to make sure that the poker room you’re using offers these special signup bonuses. Note that you’ll find some other mobile-specific promotions too so be on the lookout for these.
Compatible with More Products
Poker didn’t come available on one of the industry-leading smartphones until 2010, when Full Tilt released an Android app. This is about the same time that Switch Poker became compatible with iPhones, although you had to visit the site directly. Now, most of the top poker rooms feature apps for Android tablets and phones, iPhones, iPads, and even Windows Phones in some cases. And if a poker room doesn’t offer apps, but they do have a mobile product, you can use it by directly visiting the site, just like with Switch Poker.
There are plenty of other little changes that we haven’t discussed here with regard to mobile poker 2014. However, just based on what we did cover, you can see that playing poker through a wireless device is a much more enjoyable experience. So if you’ve got a smartphone or tablet, it’s definitely worth trying mobile online poker.
