PokerStars launches mobile poker client for UK release
PokerStars has announced the launch of a mobile poker platform, available to UK players from today. The mobile client will bring real-money Omaha and No Limit Hold'em games to players on the go.
PokerStars' long-awaited mobile poker client has been launched for UK clients today, PokerStars announced on the PokerStars Blog.

The mobile poker client was already made available to Italian players on a test basis in November, but has now been released to include players from England, Scotland, and Wales, too.

Other countries will be added "soon", the company informs.

The mobile poker platform will offer both Omaha and No Limit Hold'em games in the form of both ring games, Sit & Go's and tournaments, with integrated features such as chat, quick seating and multi-tabling.

Play-money versions of the games will also be available, as well as tutorials for how to best play on handheld devices and tables computers.

The launch is far from the first of its kind to hit the virtual shelves of the world's app stores in recent months.

{poll 244 right}Both Microgaming and Ongame have already launched real-money mobile poker apps for some of their skins, and in December, Bet24 announced its own mobile poker platform, also offering on-the-go real-money games.

The first provider to develop and launch a pure poker app for real-money play, however, was Switch Poker, who announced the launch of their iOS powered poker app already in October 2010.

PokerStars' mobile poker client will be running on both Android and iOS operating systems and is available for download for UK players from today.

Wondered what was taking so long for PokerStars to release a mobile app. I also saw that they are pushing the new product Zoom, or the equivalent of FullTilt's rush poker. Too bad FT is still out of commission, everyday they are down PokerStars gains a bigger advantage.

Rush poker was pretty neat. With the mobile app, I would only want to do cash games, it would be too easy to lose connection for tournaments or SnGs.

Another excellent move by poker stars, the worlds largest poker site. By making access more efficient for a deep and developed market like United Kingdom poker stars is ensuring more quality and service to their customers and a better gaming experience for players on the move, i wish them continued success in the years to come.
