iPhone Poker Apps
Find the Best Real Money Poker Apps for your iPhone
To be able to play real money poker on the iPhone was a dream for many players. And while major poker rooms such as Full Tilt Poker and Party Poker have treid to delve into the mobile gaming market with Rush Mobile, unfortunately the Flash software that it uses it no compatible with the iPhone.
However, in October 2010, SwitchPoker became the first poker site to launch an official real money poker app for the iPhone.
Best iPhone Poker App: Switch Poker
Launched in October 2010, Switch Poker is the best real money poker app for iPhone users. It allows you to play a selection of real money 6-max cash games, with first deposit bonuses and an SPP rewards scheme.
Unfortunately the real money games are only available to UK/European players since Switch Poker is not able to process deposits from US players.
Switch Poker Game Selection
When you sign up to Switch Poker (visit SwitchPoker.com) you can start playing 6-max ring games from 0.05/0.10c up to 1.0/2.0 Euros. Unfortunately the game selection on the Switch Poker iPhone App is limited to micro and mid stakes games – and even then the majority of recreational players are only playing in the micro-stakes games.
The good news is that Switch Poker does intend to offer a much bigger range of games on the app including heads up, pot-limit holdem, Omaha, multi-table tournaments, sit and goes and full ring games.
Switch Poker generates rake at a rate of 1c for every 20c in the pot (i.e. 5%). A maximum rake amount is also set for each level of ring games.
|Up to 10c/25c NLH:||€2|
|25c/50c & 50c/€1 NLH:||€2.50|
|€1/€2 NLH and above:||€3|
Switch Poker SPPs Reward Scheme
Switch Poker has a unique rewards scheme which gives players 100 SPPs for every 1 Euro in rake. Your SPPs can then be exchanged for prizes and offers which can be found at their blog http://blog.switchpoker.com/.
Switch Poker Compatibility
Although it was intentionally designed for the iPhone series, Switch Poker can also be played on the iPad and all popular computer browsers including Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera.
