Full Tilt has released a mobile client of their exclusive Rush Poker game. Available for Android handsets running Android 2.2 (Froyo) or above, the Rush Poker app runs on Flash so it’s not really released on the iPhone, but brings real money poker to Android users
Rush Poker is the ideal choice for playing on a mobile phone. The game plays just like a regular poker cash game, with a major difference When a player is not allowed to run in a new hand This means no waiting around, no waiting for a playable hand, just sit down and get right in the action. There’s even a “quick fold” button, so you do not have to wait for it to turn your turn to act – if you’re on the rags just click and be “rushed off” to a new seat, and a new hand daftar lapak303.
If you’ve played Rush Poker on the PC or Mac then you’ll already know that this format is fun, fast and perfect for the mobile market. One of the biggest problems for mobile phones It’s a little annoyance when playing a game and another player disconnects, but when it is repeatedly it really gets annoying. With Rush Poker you do not need to worry, if the player does not want to wait,
The Android version of the game is almost exactly the same as the regular version. You get to play the same pool of tables as players on the PC or Mac, at a full range of stakes from $ 0.02 / $ 0.05 fixed limit to $ 2 / $ 4 no limit, in both Texas Hold’em and Omaha The interface is almost exactly the same, except for the layout of the buttons and there are no checkboxes for pre-actions. Due to the small screen size the raise bar only appears after clicking on the button. Finally, there is no option to write notes on players, but since that would be slow and cumbersome to use a mobile handset it’s a feature which is probably not used any way.
Since Rush Poker Mobile runs on Flash, only Android 2.2 handsets are currently supported. That includes HTC’s Desire, Evo and Sapphire, the Motorola Droid and Milestone, and the Samsung Galaxy S among others. Several tablets including the Advent Vega, Samsung Galaxy Tab and all of the archives range also run the software.
Overall The interface is very usable While it’s not quite perfect, it does play very well and is the perfect way to fill some spare time on the train or during a coffee break. Let’s hope this spurs some of the other poker sites to follow suit, and maybe release a poker client for a different OS so that iPhone or Windows Mobile users have some action too!
