Nowadays, it seems life is a never-ending cycle of rushing from A to B. So, thank goodness for the wonderful world of apps, that allow us to indulge in our favourite pastimes, whether we’re waiting on a friend, or riding the train to work. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the poker world and the online playground of more than 50 million players in the USA alone. There are hundreds of poker apps out there, but today we’re looking at the offering from WSOP.com.
When it comes to poker, there’s really no bigger or more prestigious name in the biz than the World Series of Poker, so naturally we were keen to check out whether the app lives up to the reputation. Expectations were high and we weren’t disappointed…
First off, let’s look at the fun parts of the app. It definitely does its job in whisking you away to Las Vegas, serving up just the right dose of glitz and glam to keep you entertained without too many distractions. Speaking of which, there’s a noticeable absence of irritating adverts, which is a real bonus in our book. Clear hold, raise and fold buttons keep play straight-forward, and each opponent has its own character bubble, making observing their play nice and easy. The app also has a couple of nice features including a fun mini-slot game for you to play in between hands, and the ability to be connected to Facebook to open up a whole new host of features.
We love a freebie, and the WSOP app delivers with plenty of free chips dished out every four hours to keep you motivated. Also keeping things fresh as you progress through the game is the ability to open up new tournaments around the world in locations like Atlantic City and Sydney.
The WSOP.com app is also great for those who don’t want to limit themselves to one discipline of poker. While Texas Hold’em tends to be a clear favourite amongst app developers, it’s a pleasure to be able to brush up your Omaha Stud skillswithin the same app.
If your motivations are to become a top online poker player, the WSOP app is a great base to support your development. After each hand, you’re provided with detailed stats on your performance so you can debrief and establish where you excelled and which areas of your game require more work. If you’re 21 and located in the state of Nevada, you also have the opportunity to download and play a Real Money version of the app, which allows you to play for cash prizes.
The WSOP.com app is reliable, simple to use, and it supports player development through a range of interesting and informative features. In conclusion, we’re very happy with what we found.
