PokerStars Launches Mobile App in UK

PokerStars Sunday Million, Nov. 30

PokerStars announced today it has launched a real-money mobile app for players in the UK.

Both Texas Hold’em and Omaha are now available for real-money play in England, Scotland and Wales, joining Italy as the only countries with a PokerStars mobile app.

All of the features and support options of the desktop version are available including chat, quick-seating and multi-tabling and tutorials are provided for handset and tablet play.

"PokerStars Mobile is going to transform where and when I play poker,” said Team PokerStars pro Liv Boeree.

“I now have access to the biggest tournaments and all my favorite cash games, even when I'm not in front of my computer.

"I plan to play all the upcoming UKIPT events and will now be able to play some poker when travelling to or from a tournament."

If you live in the UK and already have a PokerStars account, you can go ahead and download the PokerStars Mobile app for iPhone, iPad or Android from iTunes already.

Once you've installed the app you can log in with your existing PokerStars account and start playing. If you don't have a PokerStars account, you’ll need to create one before you can download the app.

Download the PokerStars client via PokerListings for an up to $600 sign-up bonus and be eligible for exclusive monthly freerolls.

More countries are expected to be added soon for mobile play.

The launch of the mobile app follows on the heels of the launch of yesterday, allowing players from Sweden and FInland to play tax-free and take advantage of PokerStars' new Malta license.
