Party Poker Launches Mobile Poker App for Android

Party Poker has been surprising its online poker customers with treats throughout this week. First, the online poker room revamped its tournament schedule and increased the monthly guaranteed prizes to $15,000,000. Second, Bwin Poker joined the PartyGaming poker software platform as a result of which traffic to Party Poker shot up. Finally, Party Poker launched a brand new poker app for Android poker players. Players should, however, note that this app is now in the Beta form.

Party Poker launched its new Android product today. Right now, only players who use Android devices can use it to play mobile poker games, but it is believed that Party Poker is working on creating an iOS version of the same app.

The new Android poker app comes with attractive features such as Texas Hold’em ring games, quick-seat lobby, FastForward Poker, several mobile poker games for fun as well as real money, and options in multiple languages. On the downside, players cannot use this app to make deposits and request payouts. In order to do this, they have to log into their online Party Poker accounts.

Currently, the app is available to Android poker players having Android 2.1 or higher devices and a real money Party Poker account. Players who want to start using this app need to follow these steps: First, they must visit “Applications” under “Settings” and check the box against “Unknown sources: Allow installation of non-Market applications.” Second, they must visit on their Android devices and download the app. Third, they must login to their Party Poker accounts. They can now start playing poker for fun/real money on their Android devices.

Players who sign up for real money gaming at Party Poker through the link provided at can claim a free bankroll of $50, which is very easy to clear.
