Poker players rejoice. If your weekly game has shut down or if you just can’t get out to get into a game, then download WSOP Real Money Poker; it’s the app that bring the poker table to you, no matter where you are.
WSOP has a mobile app version of the online sensation. While there are several poker gaming apps for mobile devices, WSOP is different because you can play with real money, which means you can win real money!
Take note that you must be at least 21 years of age to play with real money and you must be in the state of Nevada. If you don’t meet either requirement, then you can play the games that run on in-game coins.
Before you start playing, be sure to set up an account on the online version of the game because logging into your account will be required on the mobile version.
For those of you who are concerned with security and privacy, especially if you plan on playing with real money, then be assured that WSOP has taken great pains to leverage encrypted protocols with strictest controls, preventing unwanted intrusions and hacking.
Now, let’s focus on the game itself. WSOP has tournaments that you can join. They are grouped by different categories. There are Cash Games, Sit & Go Games and Scheduled Tournaments. In each category, you can choose to play with real money or with in-app gaming money. Experts can dive right in and play with real cash. If you are not an expert or if you simply want to try out the game before making a real commitment, I would highly recommend playing with the gaming money first. More practice is always better before you put your hard earned money on the line.
You can browse the different gaming categories to see which games interest you the most. If you find one that you like and if it needs additional players, then the next step to take is register. This is where you will have to put up the minimum ante. You will also see other game stats like:
- the total number of players allowed in the game
- the number of spots remaining
- the starting dollar amount for chips
- the average stack
- the current blinds
- the next blinds level
All of this information will help you determine if you really want to get in on a game. If you know your poker well, using this data to determine whether you are in or out can mean the difference between winning big or losing.
What really makes WSOP true to life is the sound effects and the layout; they make you feel like you are seated at the table and amongst friends for a Friday night game.
The only downside is that at times you may have difficulty joining a game, so it would be nice to have more games going on.
For the most part, it was easy enough to find a game to enjoy it. I will definitely stick with in-game money for a little while longer, but look forward to some big winnings when I make the switch to real cash.
