Pokerstars, the world's biggest online poker site, announced today that their Facebook Social Poker hit, known as Pokerstars Play, is now available to be played directly from your mobile device. The popular game has been developed for iOS and Android and the application is already available for download now.
Pokerstars Play is a free-to-play poker application on Facebook, where the players don't just play against each other on Facebook, but also against the players who plays with play-money on Pokerstars.net, making them one of the biggest social poker sites in the world.
Pokerstars Play even received an award for being the “Best Social Poker Application” at the first IGA Gaming App Awards in London on Monday. The game is free-to-play, but comes with in-game purchases such as buying more chips to play with. Furthermore the game has innovative sliding functions, instead of having to click on the screen, making it seem more like playing poker at a table rather than online.
"PokerStars PLAY and Mobile were meant for each other. Now you can get great poker action at the airport gate, your local cafe, or sitting on your back porch with a cup of coffee. Poker is meant to be fun and now it can be spontaneous too; wherever you and your smartphone are, there's a seat in a fun poker game waiting for you." Lee Jones, Head of Poker Communications at Pokerstars said.
