In front of you is the best poker for Windows Phone, Texas Holdem Poker. The game only works on-line which means that your opponents are real people just like you, who have given way to the feeling of excitement. Before you start playing, you need to log into the server of the game making up a nickname for yourself. As can be seen from one of the screenshots, the game offers to use your Facebook account to log into the game, but we failed to register in the game this way no matter how hard we tried.
According to the players' feedback in the Marketplace, there is also the information that this function does not work which means that the problem is global, and it is hoped that developers will fix it. Let's not get hung up on this bug. Especially given that the registration takes less than a minute, and as for the rest the game works flawlessly.
Game featuresSo, at the beginning of the game in your account there appear a starting amount of money of a very indiscreet size. Then you can proceed with an usual game or a tournament. However, to participate in the latter you will have to pay up a tidy sum as the initial contribution. If you already feel like a professional, we see no reason to deny yourself the pleasure to scoop a large profit, though if you are a beginner, you should start with the most common game where bets are minimal and you can muck your hand without upsetting at any time.
The maximum number of players at the table cannot be more than five (including you). At the beginning of the game each player is given two cards. As soon as the initial stakes are parlayed, additional cards will appear on the table. Looking at the overall hand (your cards plus the dealer's cards) you have to make conclusions and either put some more chips (answer or raise), or pass the lead (if available), or fold.
Donat and additional chipsIt makes no sense to explain the rules of the game here. Those who don't know them should better address to more in-depth literature than study losing money. However, if you are willing to invest your own money to buy the in-game currency, you may as well start to experiment in Texas Holdem Poker. If only there was an opportunity to actually earn and withdraw real money, then the game would have got a lot more fans. In the game settings you can download some avatar to your profile and directly during the game you can change the emoticon that shows your mood.
ResumeIn addition, you can invite all the players to friends and chat in the common chatroom. In the main menu there is a table where you can view a list of current games and take part in one of them if there is a place at the table. In general, the game is great and will certainly impress all fans of poker.
