Best poker apps

Poker apps are not as prominent as betting apps in the UK as there’s not as many around and even less decent ones. The early poker apps struggled to get the gameplay on a small screen but recent improvements from the iPoker network have seen the apps really improve.

There are some good apps from the big names in betting and from the dedicated poker companies too now. We’ve rated the apps to bring you our top poker apps in the UK. These are all real money live poker rather than video poker that you get on other casino apps. You’ll find the full range of poker games, sit and go tournaments and big prize tournaments.

Frequently asked questions about Poker AppsPoker Apps FAQs

What is the best app for beginners? 

We’d still say the bet365 poker app is the recommended app even for beginners. Do some reading up on how the games work, then start with the smallest stakes you can. Learn as you go along and see how you get on. Texas Hold-Em poker is generally regarded as the easiest poker game to learn so start there before checking out other versions.

What is the best offline poker app?

This is something we get asked every now and again and unfortunately, it’s not something we’ve tested or tried. We’re not keen on the video style poker apps and with the mobile networks these days other than on some tube lines or on a plane its rare that you can’t get online.

What is a poker calculator app?

With these apps, you put in your hand and the other cards that have been dealt and the calculator will work out your percentage chance of winning based on the cards you can see. This is perfectly legal and most of the run for Texas Hold-Em Poker. This is a good way to start learning about the maths behind the different poker hands as well as judging when to raise, hold or fold.
