Texas Poker: Fast Fun Poker
Texas Poker is a fast paced, action packed game of Texas Hold ‘Em for anyone who likes to play, regardless of their skill level. You’re playing with real people so you can chat with others at the table, or buy them gifts if they have a great have a great hand.
As you win hands, your ranking becomes higher and higher, and you can check a players states and level just by clicking on their profile. I’ve seen this on several games, and it’s a helpful tool when trying to decide how someone else might play.
You get some chips everyday in the daily lottery, so it’s totally free to play, and if you run out you can purchase more in the app store. I always wonder why anyone would want to spend money to play for virtual money, but I’ve never lost all my chips, so I don’t have that problem. If you play a bit conservatively in the beginning, you’ll easily be able to build up enough chips that you shouldn’t have to worry about it for a while.
Texas Poker is great for novices and experts alike. If you’ve never played before, there’s a great interactive tutorial that will teach you everything you need to know. If you’re a more skilled player, you can move straight to the tables, either regular or tournaments.
There are lots of reasons to try this game, the first being it’s totally free. If you lose all your chips, you’ll just have to wait until the next day’s lottery to get more, but then you’ll back at it. There are lots of players from all over the globe, so you’ll be able to play day or night against the best of the best.
I’ve played a lot of poker games, and while I’m not sure this one is the best, there are a lot of things I really like about Texas Poker.
For starters, it’s really fast. There’s no lagging in the gameplay, so the only thing that can slow it down are the other players, but you always run that risk when you the game you’re playing relies on strangers.
The other thing I like is that it tells you the hand you have at all times, so there’s no guessing. This might sound silly to really skilled players, but there have been times when I’ve thought I had a straight or flush (usually in the middle of the night after I should have quit playing hours ago) and folded or went all in only to realize I made a mistake. So maybe not everyone likes this feature, but for me it’s great. A surprising number of poker apps don’t do this.
If you like to play virtual poker, this is a terrific app. Maybe you’re looking for a great free game with lots of features that also happens to be free, or maybe you just need a change of pace from your current favorite. Either way you can’t go wrong with Texas Poker, which is why I highly recommend it.
