Best Real Money Poker Apps for iPhone and iPad
Is it just me, or does Apple put out a new iPhone or iPad every year? I suppose you can’t blame them. Consumers are using their phones and tablets to consume media more and more everyday. Experts don’t expect that to slow down anytime soon either.
Poker sites are starting to take notice of this trend, too, and are creating apps and downloads of their software as a result.
What Poker Sites Can I Play at Using My iPhone / iPad?
The best way to tell is to use our lists and reviews. We make it very clear what sites are compatible with iPhones and iPads. Of course, if you find a site that has a non flash/java based instant play version of their software, or you use a remote app, you can play from any site using your Apple device.
Most Commonly Asked Questions About Poker Apps for iPhones and iPads
Do iPhone / iPad Poker Sites Accept US Players?
That depends. The sites we list do. The best way to tell on our site is to look for an American flag on our tables. That means the sites accept American players. However, keep in mind that doesn’t guarantee players from your state are allowed. Many poker sites exclude states that have stricter laws regarding online gambling.
If you’re searching for poker sites on your own, whether they accept Americans or not will be listed on their homepage or terms and conditions page. You can always contact their support to find out, too.
How Do I Play Real Money Poker on iPad / iPhone?
- The first step is to read our reviews. Find the site that appeals to you the most.
- Next, visit the site you like and create an account. I recommend doing this from your computer. It’s easier than trying to fill out the form(s) from your phone.
- You’ll then need to download the app, if available.
- Then make a deposit. Keep in mind many sites make you do this from your computer for security purposes.
- Then open up a game and play. If you have to play from your browser, find the no-download section of the site and load a game.
That’s it. Getting started is that easy.
Can I Play Poker on My iPad or iPhone for Money?
Yes. Assuming you choose a poker room from our site, or found a gambling site on your own that states they offer real money poker.
Another way to tell is if the app costs you money. Most poker sites will give you the app free, since they’ll make their money from the rake they charge you each hand or tournament you play.
How Do I Make a Deposit?
Making a deposit on your tablet or phone is the same as your desktop. You’ll choose your deposit method, fill in your details and hit submit. Remember that some sites force you to make deposits from your desktop (instead of your mobile device) for security purposes.
Each site is different, but your deposit options (can) include Bitcoin, Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, PaySafeCard, PayPal, Skrill, Ukash, bank wires, money transfers from Western Union and e-wallets. The best payment options for US players will be any form of credit or debit card, e-wallets, transfers and prepaid cards.
Fees and limits will vary from site to site.
Is Online Poker on my iPhone / iPad Safe?
Absolutely. No different than playing from your desktop/laptop computer. The rooms featured on this safe are safe poker sites.
One exception is the security measures you take on your own phone. The more precautions you take the more secure your account will be. Another exception is the site you play on. Choose a bad site and you’re more prone to security/safety issues and vice versa.
Are There Any Costs or Fees Playing?
There shouldn’t be. If you download an app it should be free. The poker room makes money when you play, so there’s no reason to nickel and dime you to download the app.
If you do download an app and it costs you a couple of bucks, it’s probably a different kind of app. It’s going to be a free poker game where you play against the computer or against real players, but for fun.
Other than that, the only costs or fees you’ll run into is the banking costs, if there are any.
What Other Options Do I Have for Playing Poker on my Phone / Tablet?
Find an app from the Apple store. Play money games are the next best thing if you have an itch to play a few hands of holdem.
You can also setup a remote app so that you can play poker from your desktop, but control everything from your tablet. That will give you the opportunity to play for cash if there isn’t an app available for the poker site you want to play at.
