PokerStars launches UK Mobile app
If you've been playing the game long enough, there aren't many words in poker that can make your heart race. But today, PokerStars issued a five-word statement that will change the lives of UK poker players. Those five words?
"We are now an App."
With one little sentence, PokerStars set out on a journey that will change the lives of poker players in the UK. Following a successful launch in Italy, PokerStars Mobile today opened up its app to UK players. Now, players in England, Scotland, and Wales (excluding Northern Ireland) can play on PokerStars anytime they want.
Waiting for a table at a restaurant? Having a pint at the pub? On the long commute home? Lying in bed without a laptop? It doesn't matter. UK players with an iPhone, Android, or iPad can fire up PokerStars and play for real money. It's a poker revolution unlike any in recent years.
This bears repeating: PokerStars Mobile is for real: real money, real poker, whenever you want. All the hold'em and Omaha games you want to play will be available on the Mobile app. You can even multitable with ease! The only catch is that you have to be an existing PokerStars player before you can use the Mobile app. But, really, that's not very hard at all. If you need a PokerStars account, just create one on your desktop computer or laptop, and then you can play on your PokerStars Mobile app whenever you want.
For now, this innovation is only available in Italy and the UK, but we'll have news about other parts of the world soon. Keep your eyes on this space for more news.
You can download the app for free from Apple's UK App Store, or check out the official PokerStarsMobile.com page for all download options and information.
Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree is one of the early adopters. She said: "PokerStars Mobile is going to transform where and when I play poker - I now have access to the biggest tournaments and all my favourite cash games, even when I'm not in front of my computer. I plan to play all the upcoming UKIPT events and will now be able to play some poker when travelling to or from a tournament."
