Top 10 Free Poker Apps for iPhone and Android

Love poker?

Once upon a time, you’d have to visit a casino or get together with friends to enjoy a game or two. But now free poker apps offer the freedom to play at any time, any place.

And here are the top 10 poker apps you can play on your iPhone or Android for free right now.

#1 Jackpot Poker

This free-to-play poker app boasts a professional design and smooth performance.

It offers three-player games and simple controls that make it easy to dive into fast.

#2 World Series of Poker

World Series of Poker hails from that gaming powerhouse, EA. It features all the quality visuals and gameplay you’d expect of such a strong brand.

It’s incredibly easy to use and a good starting point for beginners.

#3 Politaire

Okay, so Politaire isn’t like other poker games you’ve played before.

As the name suggests, Politaire combines poker with solitaire. The aim is to build poker hands of five cards by getting rid of some as you play through a full deck. It’s simple, fun and perfect if you want something a little different.

#4 Appeak Poker

Want to play a free poker app with a light-hearted touch?

Try Appeak Poker.

This includes cartoonish visuals and streamlined presentation. It’s fast, it’s clean, and lets you interact with other players online easily.

#5 Zynga Poker

Zynga Poker features a cartoonish style (like Appeak Poker) but plays totally differently.

You can take advantage of the Jump Poker option, which equips players with a fresh hand of cards as soon as they fold. This sustains a fast pace, great for playing on the go.

#6 Share My Pair

Share My Pair is a poker app with a difference: you can share an impressive hand with others through Facebook, email, Twitter or even text message.

It includes over 18,000 animations depicting poker hands and accommodates players from more than 50 nations.

#7 Poker Central

Feel like watching others play poker rather than trying a hand yourself?

Poker Central makes it easy to watch poker on demand round the clock. 24/7 access to poker videos makes Poker Central a welcome addition to any poker-fan’s smartphone.

Want to watch it on a bigger screen instead? Poker Central’s available for Apple TV, Roku, and more too.

#8 World Poker Club

World Poker Club incorporates cool gesture controls for a quick gaming experience. This is terrific if you want to cut down on the amount of buttons you need to push on screen.

Just flick, double-tap and drag to control the game. It looks good and plays well too. The tactile interface is definitely the biggest draw, though.

#9 SnapShove

New to poker? Seasoned player who wants to brush up on your skills?

SnapShove is designed for you. This features solid training options to help you develop strategies and cultivate a deeper understanding of poker techniques.

Its design is simple but colourful too, keeping it easy on the eye for long stretches.

#10 Pineapple!

Pineapple is a 13-card poker game with a vibrant style. It plays differently to traditional poker, so it’s worth checking out if you want to try something fresh.

Multiple game modes are available, including a traditional Open Face Chinese (OFC) poker option.

Each of these free poker apps offers fans of all tastes and skill a quality experience. Give them a try, whether you want to brush up on your strategies or play with fellow poker fans.
