The number one poker app on the Android market, Dragonplay’s Live Holdem Poker Pro easily connects you with millions of beginner and professional players around the world. Accessing your Facebook and Google accounts will let you play with the friends you have on those networks, or choose pictures form them to use as avatars.
Upon registering, you are given 12K of chips, 1000 diamonds, and an additional 5K chips for each day you sign in and play. You can spend you chips on tournaments, each having its entry fee with minimum blind rules and various prizes for the top players. Additionally, browsing through tables for a quick play is also possible. Same as the tournaments, you can expect to find different blind values, betting limits, and number of players for each of them.
If you are unfamiliar with Texas Hold’em, its not very different from other types of poker, more exactly you still have the same card values, and you still try to have a better hand than the other players at the table. The only difference is that you start with only two cards in your hand, and without knowing what the others are, you have to bet, raise, check, or fold. After that a total of five cards are placed on the table (first three, then one, and another one), and at the end of all the betting rounds, the player with the best hand wins. For the complete set of rules, visit Dragonplay’s website.
Poker itself is an addictive game, but Dragonplay’s implementation makes it that much better. Live chat, personal avatars, the platinum zone, goods to send people around the table, and the ability to save to your SD card are just some of the features that differentiate this version from the others and place it right on top.
