It is time to hit the cards! Looking for an exciting simulated poker challenge where you can play folks from around the world? World Series of Poker could be your next game.
At our family gatherings, me and the kids (of all ages) love to play poker. Now we do not bet real money but it is loads of fun. There are plenty of poker type games in the various markets these days. I have played a few of them. Today I am looking at World Series of Poker from Playtika.
The game is free to play and you do not have to bet any real money, so you are safe. [Note: If you are over 21 and live in Nevada and want to make some real money you go here ]
There is a lot going on in the game but it is not hard to follow or figure out. There are two games you can play: Texas Hold-em and Omaha. (I normally play Texas Hold’em). The game provides some nice stats on what you have won and finished so far, like highest stakes played, tournaments won, etc. There are tutorials if you need them too.
Within the game there are numerous locations you can play out, each with different prize levels; Atlantic City, Paris, Sydney, and more. These need to be played in order and are unlocked at different levels.
The game plays in landscape mode and there are no major ads in it. The layout and graphics are well done. The buttons are clearly labeled and again very straight forward so if you want to fold, raise, or hold you know exactly what to push.
A few other features in the game:
- you get free chips every 4 hours
- you can connect to Facebook and get some extras
- you can play a slot mini-game in between your games
The nice thing about this game is that you can play a few hands or spend a few hours, whatever you like. This is a nicely done poker app, so if you consider yourself a “card shark” or want to practice being one, then maybe WSOP is for you.
