Quality graphics, online multiplayer, quality game play
Greedy donation system
DH Texas Poker for Android offers online multiplayer gaming that will cost you a lot of real money if you’re not careful.
DH Texas Poker is a quality video poker app. Just choose your avatar from those offered, or link your Facebook account to use your own profile picture. You can play against friends or join a random game and play against live online opponents. The game plays out from an aerial view of a poker table. Everyone is represented by an avatar or Facebook pic. The game unfolds like a real poker game and each player has a set amount of time to decide how to play each hand. It’s Texas style poker, and the standard rules apply.
The graphics are quite good. I wouldn't call them 3D or anything like that, but they are high quality. The animation is smooth as is the online play. I experienced no buffering issues or hangs. The menus are nice and modern looking. The one thing that kind of floored me was the astronomical prices for chips. They start you off with some, and then there's always the lure of winning big. But the greedy donation system suggests that perhaps this game does a bit too good of a job at creating a true casino experience. Be careful, because all those hotels in Vegas were built by losers and crushed dreams.
DH Texas Poker is a very good online poker app. The play is fast paced and you have to be on your toes. Just be careful not to break your bank for real.
