WSOP Releases Mobile Poker App for Iphone and Ipad
On Tuesday, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) announced a partnership with EA Sports that will see the company release their own app for the iPad, the iPhone, and iPod touch devices.
World Series of Poker Presented by EA will offer fans of the game all of the excitement and action of the WSOP but on a mobile device. Caesars Interactive Entertainment partnered with EA to develop an app that will allow players to play in multiple game modes with both Texas Hold’em and Omaha Poker offered.
Players will be able to play with friends and others from around the world via Facebook integration and even anonymous logins will be offered in the future. Players can also collect virtual WSOP bracelets and circuit rings like real life players. All the social media features that you would come to expect from any poker game are offered including virtual gifts, chat, and more.
According to Bernard Kim, Senior VP of Social and Mobile Publishing with EA, We’ve taken the adrenaline rush of playing at the table and combined it with stats to help you anticipate your opponents’ moves for a truly fun and competitive game that fans can play anytime. No other app captures the true poker experience like World Series of Poker.”
Craig Abrahams, the CFO of CIE stated that, “We are excited to partner with EA and bring a fun and authentic poker experience to your phone or tablet. The WSOP defines the ultimate poker experience and now EA is helping bring the virtual Vegas experience to our customers across multiple mobile devices worldwide.”
The app is currently available for free at the iTunes App Store and will be featured on Google Play later in the month. You can visit WSOPMobile.com for more information on the app or check them out on Facebook.
