888 Poker has one of the best online poker software suites already and now they’ve released an Android poker app in beta. If you have an 888 Poker account you may have received an email from 888 Poker, but if not you can sign-up for an account easily. The new Android poker app can be downloaded instantly on your Android mobile device by visiting the link below.
Currently the 888 Poker Android app is in beta mode only and there will be some bugs to work through I’m sure. Players will only be able to play cash games on the poker app for real money right now and tournaments may be available in the future. There are only certain stakes supported on the app as well right now, but the mobile player pool isn’t segregated from the online player pool.
Once you download and install the Android poker app from 888 Poker you need to make sure you allow non-market apps or else the app won’t work when you try to open it. The poker lobby is very basic and allows you to play on beginner cash tables or you can use the quick seat feature to find a seat at the stakes you want to play.
On the beginner tables players will be able to play NL Holdem at $.01/$.02, $.03/$.06 and $.05/$.10 stakes. If you use the quick seat feature you can find games with higher stakes, but during beta mode the stakes are limited. The table features are very limited, but that’s expected when you’re playing on a mobile device.
In fact, 888 Poker may need to trim the poker tables a bit more in order to make them more suitable for mobile devices. The avatars take up a lot of space and aren’t needed on the mobile app. I like the bet slider on the right of the table that you can use to quickly size out your bets before clicking on the bet button at the bottom of your screen.
888 Poker has also implemented a chat feature on the mobile app, so you can still chat with the rest of the table. Trying to chat with other players while playing poker on your Android isn’t that easy and you may not want to worry about trying to chat. You can even earn 888 rakeback through our partner site.
You can download the new Android app at the link above and start playing for real money today. Keep in mind there may be some bugs that need to be worked through initially. 888 Poker is actually looking for all the help they can from beta testers, so if you see a bug or problem with the Android app you can email 888 Poker at 888PokerMobile@888Poker.com.
