Play Bold Poker With iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch With This Innovative App

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 7th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Because plain old card stock so last century!

The Bold Poker developer aims to make playing poker together in a room super iPhone friendly with this new app. Don't have a deck of cards? Hate shuffling and dealing when it's your turn? Bold Poker might be the answer. This innovative app looks odd but is certainly compelling, especially with the amazing art design on it.

How it works:

♠ Put a device (iPad is best) in the middle of the table for the board cards
♠ Each player opens Bold Poker and joins the game with their own iPhone or iPod
♠ Move the dealer button on the board device to deal a card to each player
♠ Drag the button to the player with the highest card to deal the first hand

If you want to get crazy and have a few extra iPhones or iPod touches you can:

♠ Use an extra iPhone or iPod touch for the button (moderately crazy)
♠ Use five iPhones or iPod touches to display the board (borderline insane)
♠ Use two iPhones per player to display each pocket card (off the hook)

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: FREE POKER FUN :: Read Review »

Gameloft has release a new poker game, Texas Poker for Prizes. This free to play game has one huge interesting twist. Just by playing the game, you have the chance to win some real world prizes -- TVs, trips to Las Vegas, and more.

While that's the hook, the game does have other things going for it. For one, when playing online you can play up to four tables at once. Very useful when you are waiting on 8 other slow players to decide their move. It also has the ability to support Airplay where the poker table can be displayed on your TV (via Apple TV) while each players hands are shown on their handheld devices in a local multiplayer game.

Ante-Up as World Series of Poker Prepares to Hit the App Store

Posted by Rob Rich on July 2nd, 2012

Poker has kind of taken the country by storm over the past several years. It’s made its way into all manner of media, obviously including video games. So what makes this particular digital rendition of card-based gambling worth checking out? Quite a lot, it turns out.

All of the expected options are available in World Series of Poker, such as Texas Hold ‘Em and even Omaha Poker, but there’s a slew of more social-oriented features that are actually pretty awesome. Every player has an account that automatically tracks virtually every aspect of their games; thus helping them to better understand their own play style through statistics as well as allowing them to show off their skills with a number of different trophies such as special tournament rings.

It’s easy to tell what a player needs to work on (i.e. too much folding, not enough folding, etc.) at a glance, but what’s also cool is that really good players can gain access to a special league of games that are only available to others that have earned the same honor. In other words, seriously good poker players won’t have to worry about finding themselves in a game full of casual players. It’s also easy to find, invite, and join games that are already in progress. Each game is represented with a table, and players have only to tap an open seat to invite a buddy or two. And it’s just as easy to join a game.

I wasn’t able to procure any pricing information, but World Series of Poker will be available on the App Store “soon.”

Zynga Slots Reaches Top 10 in Days, BTIG Offers Analysis

Posted by Kevin Stout on June 21st, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

The social gaming giant, Zynga, just released the next app in their casino gaming line on Friday, Zynga Slots. With little marketing at all, the game rose in the free iPhone game rankings from #105 (Sunday) to #6 (Monday night). BTIG Media's Rich Greenfield, an analyst for the company, made some interesting observations on Zynga's casino gaming line and what it may do to their valuation.

Greenfield observed they incredible and lasting success of Zynga Poker. The game was released in 2007 and continues to be the #7 top grossing app on iOS and accounted for 16% of Zynga's revenue in Q1. He see slots as another easily monetized game and notes how Zynga competitors are already fairing in that space,

"Both the monetization and staying power of poker is intuitive. For slots games, it is a little less intuitive. However, Zynga competitors have been very successful in the space – illustrating the addictive nature of the game."

Greenfield also noted that the demographic Zynga is going after with a slots game is a demographic it knows well - women over 35. For Farmville, two-thirds of its player base are women and 50% of those players are over 35. Slotomania, a slots competitor, has similar numbers (two-thirds women and two-thirds over 35).

BTIG Media and Entertainment Research believes that there's option value in Zynga right now in terms of the legalization of online gambling,

"We continue to believe that there is significant option value in Zynga for the legalization of online gambling, which is not reflected in ZNGA shares...We believe there will be gambling potential on nearly all of Zynga’s games. However, the most immediate traction will be in traditional casinos games."
