Live Hold’em Poker (Facebook) for Android
5 out of 5
As simple as it is addictive: Play Texas Hold’em against your Facebook (and other social media) friends, plus other DROID owners.
Even with several days of practice, I’m still getting my clocked clean. (And, no, I will not purchase virtual Dragon Gold to feed my habit.)
If you switch to another app during a round, your phone will helpfully vibrate to let you know that it’s your turn. Good DROID.
SIMILAR APPS IN THE MARKETPLACE:
Live Poker – Texas Hold’em
WPT Texas Hold ‘em
Monte Carlo Texas Hold’em
Arguably the very best Texas Hold’em Poker app in the known Android universe, Live Hold ‘em Poker is your free gateway to virtual gambling addiction. Or at least a path to burn some perfectly good hours doing what many of us guys love to do – play Poker with our friends!
Drop in and out of hundreds of available tables day or night, connect with your Facebook and other social media networked-friends, and even use your profile picture as your in-game avatar.
The game play is spot on, with well-rendered tables and cards, plus the icing on the cake: Feel free to navigate away from the app to get some work done. When it’s your turn, your phone will vibrate (be sure to turn this on!) and you can quick-switch back to your table.
Of course, this free app does come with a cost. That is, if you find yourself low on funds, the developers will be happy to cash in your real-world currency for some Dragon Gold.
Between us, if you’re spending money like this, you should strongly consider some help. Help learning the ins and outs of Texas Hold’em of course. In no time, you’ll be folding like a pro (that is, often!) and winning more hands than you’re losing.
Wow, double Aces! Let me get back to my hand, please…
