Party Poker Adds Android App, $15m in Guarantees
A big week for Party Poker got even bigger today with the launch of its new real-money Android app.
Already in the news for upping its monthly tournament guarantee to $15 million and completing its player pool merge with bwin, the real-money app is Party's first entry in the mobile market.
Still just in beta mode, the app is now available to existing players with a Party account and an Android 2.1 and higher device.
Available in multiple languages, players can now access both real-money and play-money games including Texas Hold’em cash-game tables and FastForward poker tables.
No deposit or withdrawal option is available through the App as of yet and it's only available to existing players at this point.
An iOS app is in the works but is also not yet available.
To access the new mobile app on your Android device, go to settings >> applications and check off the “unknown sources” box. Then simply visit PartyPoker.com on your phone and start the download.
Tournament Guarantees Up to $15 Million
Along with the player-pool merge that bumped traffic up past Full Tilt Poker into second-place in the overall market, Party has also added $5 million to its monthly tourney guarantees in a massive upgrade.
Among the tourney additions to look for are:
- An extra $100k for the big Guaranteed Sunday event pushing the total to $300k
- Tournaments now starting every 15 minutes, 365 days a year
- $10,000 in daily giveaways starting on Jan. 1, 2013.
