The new app supports single table play-for-fun and real-money Texas Hold’em games. Omaha poker games and Sit n Go tournaments are expected to be in early 2013. Fans of high-speed poker formats such as PokerStars Zoom or Full Tilt’s Rush Poker will be glad to hear that the new Party Poker app includes a similar fastfold poker variant called “FastForward Poker”.
The app is not available in Google Play, Getjar or any of the other app markets. It can only be downloaded and installed from the PartyPoker website. For now, players are also required to deposit and withdraw funds via the desktop client.
- Visit www.partypoker.com and sign-up for a new account if you do not already have one.
- If you want to play for real money you will then need to install the desktop client on your PC or Mac.
- Visit www.partypoker.com using your Android phone or tablet and login. Party Poker will automatically detect your Android device and offer you the correct apk file for your OS.
The Party Poker Android app comes with a quick seat lobby similar to that offered by 888. Players can also choose to play in a variety of different languages including Spanish, English, Russian, French, German, Chinese and many more.
Party Poker have yet to offer a release date for an iOS version for the Apple iPhone and iPad.
