Instead Appeak Poker offers fast, simple No-Limit Hold’em action with a variety of different stakes to play and even Multi-Table Tournaments. What's not to like about that?
You’ll always find plenty of play-money games running as Appeak Poker is one of the more popular free-to-play mobile poker apps. Appeak Poker has over 70,000 active users and over 1 million downloads to date so there’s never a shortage of games - plus get a daily 1,0000-chip bonus and your choice of 40+ avatars!
Play Appeak Poker Online or on Your Phone!
One of Appeak Poker’s best features is the ability to play without registering an account. It’s great for players just looking to get some poker basics before a home game or making a deposit on a real-money poker client.
Once you start up the Appeak Poker app you’ll be able to find and get into a free game instantly using the Play Now feature. You can also view the full lobby where you can take your pick of the tables currently running.
While Appeak is a simple app there are some unique features. One is the frequently running duels where you can take on someone from a competing country in a heads-up battle. It’s a fun way to get in a quick game.
There’s also a popular leaderboard that’s fiercely competitive with local, Europe, North America and Asia categories. Overall Appeak Poker is an easy download if you’re looking for some fun, free-to-play poker on your mobile device.
Find a Game, Fast!
All current Appeak Poker tables running are listed in the lobby. The listed info will show you the number of players seated and the buy-in for the table.
Both cash games and sit-and-gos are available and all tables play five-handed.
The lowest cash-game buy-in is 80 chips; the highest is 200,000.
The lowest level SnG is 400 chips; the biggest is a massive 2,000,000!
Appeak Poker Free Chips
A lot of sites out there like to push the idea there are "hacks" or "cheats" to get free chips for your account. While they may or may not actually be able to offer what they claim (mostly not), there's no need to bother with the Appeak app.
Along with a daily bonus of 1,00- chips you'll have numerous chances to get even more free chips in your account with daily challenges. Work your way up the leaderboard for even bigger chip prizes.
You can also, of course, buy as many chips as you like (maximum: 5,000,000 at a time) to build up the bankroll you need to enter higher-stake events and reach "pro" status.
Win one of the fun SnG tournaments on the Appeak Poker app and you'll also be rewarded with a cavalcade of new chips.
TOURNAMENTS AND FREEROLLS
Appeak Poker doesn’t have a loyalty program but it does have a fun achievement system. The achievement system rewards players for accomplishing small tasks such as winning a certain number of hands. Players can then move up reward levels.
SOFTWARE AND GRAPHICS
Appeak Poker offers a very simple but effective software with a nice aesthetic. You won’t see the flashy gimmicks of Zynga Poker but that’s not a bad thing.
The focus here is poker and it shows. Appeak Poker scales well to many devices with different screen sizes. The cards look particularly good and it’s easy to make out the different suits and values.
The software is very functional with everything you’d expect from a poker app with check/fold, check, fold and bet buttons along with a betting slider. It’s easy to see exactly how much is in the pot at all times.
It’s very easy to play and follow any game you pick on Appeak. All of the functionality is very self-explanatory and mirrors playing on an online poker site. It's also nice to be able to use a four-color deck to help you see the suits clearly - just like a real poker site.
There's also a very nice player profile page that shows you your level, how far you need to go to reach the next level, the best hand you've made, your number of hands played, winning percentage and more.
If you need any assistance to figure things out all of the major questions and features of the software are explained in a comprehensive FAQ.
As with most free-to-player poker apps the competition on Appeak Poker is quite bad because many of the players are learning to play.
If you want to try some tougher competition just go to the higher-stakes games where there is a small community of players who pride themselves on being amongst the leaders on Appeak Poker.
Of course if you want a real challenge or want to make some money you might be better off downloading a real-money poker client.
As it is, though, Appeak Poker is the perfect tool for learning how to adjust to the speed of real online poker while risking none of your own cash.
As an added bonus there's a very friendly international community of players who are happy to chat away about poker hands and give great advice to new players.
There is no "currency" in plat at Appeak but there definitely is a pecking order of poker talent. The higher you work your way up the leaderboard the tougher the competition will be.
Still, as you improve your game there's nothing stopping you from reaching the very top of leaderboard as you can play your way up to the top or buy chips to get there faster.
If you're looking for a fast, free and super fun way to learn the game of poker, Appeak Poker is for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do I play?
- Join a table that is not full (a full table has 5 players).
- Sit down at an empty seat. Empty seats have the blue Appeak Poker logo in front of them. Press the logo to sit down at that seat.
- Wait for your turn.
2. I have forgotten my username/password.
If you did set a valid email when you registered your account (or later by going to the settings screen and tapping Edit profile), you can recover both your username and password by following this link. Otherwise, you are out of luck.
3. I have not received my daily bonus today.
Most likely you are in a different time zone than the server. The server clock is set to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)/Greenwich Mean Time. Check the current date and time in that timezone.
To clarify, please study the following example:
- User A is in timezone EST (which is UTC -5 hours).
- A logs in at Feb 11, 8:00 PM and receives the daily bonus. The local server time is Feb 12, 1:00 AM.
- A then logs in at Feb 12, 1:00 PM and expects a new daily bonus. The local server time is now Feb 12, 6:00 PM.
- Thus both of A's logins occured on the same day according to the server, and A will have to wait 6 hours to receive the next daily bonus.
4. I have lost all my chips, how do I continue playing?
Login tomorrow and you will, as usual, receive the daily bonus of 1,000. You can also buy chips (for real money) by pressing the "Get chips" button on the game's main screen.
5. When I leave a table, my chips disappear.
When leaving a table, your stack (your chips at the table) becomes available as soon as the current hand ends. This usually takes 1-2 minutes; sometimes more, sometimes less.
6. I did not provide an email when I registered, can I do it now?
Yes. Go to the settings screen and tap "Edit Profile." Click next and enter your email.
7. How do I remove friends?
Press the "Friends" card on the game's main screen. Expand any categories (such as "Offline") if necessary and press the friend for a few seconds (a so called long press) until a dialog shows up. Press remove.
8. Why are hands sometimes shown and other times mucked?
(First of all, this is not some bug or mistake or something specific to Appeak Poker, please read and understand the rules of Texas Hold'em if you think so. Some brief Texas Hold'em info:
There are two main approaches to showing/mucking in Texas Hold'em. The first one forces all players involved in the showdown to show their hand. It is common in home games.
The second approach gives players the option to muck their hand in certain showdown situations. This is the standard on virtually every poker site.
Appeak Poker previously used the first approach, but now uses this one. We switched because users complained (and rightfully so, we think) about not wanting to give out compromising information about their play.
Now, we will discuss the two scenarios in which players show their cards on Appeak Poker. The first one is if everybody goes all in before the river card has been dealt. In this scenario, everybody shows their hand in no specific order.
The other scenario is when the hand goes to showdown and everybody did not go all in before the river. Now, players show their hands in a specific order. On Appeak Poker, all of the show and muck actions happen at the same time, to speed up the game.
They are still performed in a specific order, however. Our rules for showing or mucking are as follows:
The last player to make a bet or raise shows first. This applies even if the last raise was made pre-flop, for example. If there are no bets or raises, the first player after the button shows first.
Then, each player, starting with the one after the first who showed in clockwise order, shows if he/she holds a better hand. Otherwise, the player mucks.
If there are sidepots, the players in those show their hands first.
In the game log you can see who actually showed first by finding the oldest "x showed ...". Note that in scenario 1, there is no specific order, because mucking is not possible.
Finally, an example:
- A bets 50
- B calls
- C calls
- D calls
- E calls
- A checks
- B checks
- C checks
- D checks
- E checks
A is the last better/raiser, so he shows first. A shows a pair of fives.
B has a pair of fours, so he mucks.
C has a pair of sevens, so he shows.
D has a pair of sixes. He mucks (because his hand is worse than the best hand shown so far; C's hand).
E has a flush, so he shows and wins the pot.
9. I am unable to connect. What can I do?
Try again in a few minutes. If the problem persists, try again in an hour.
10. This is the third time I lost connection. I have lost chips because of this; will you do something about it?
If you are on a poor connection and your chip count is important to you, do not play! Data connections over cell phone networks are not very reliable; you may suddenly lose connection because of e.g. too many nearby cell phones or bad reception. If possible, play on WIFI.
11. I can't find a table with an empty seat. Add more tables!
The number of tables is automatically adjusted to guarantee that there always is an empty table of each blind size. It may take a few seconds until a new table is created, though.
12. I had the best hand on the showdown but someone else won. Why?
Every time somebody complains about this, one of these two cases apply (we look at the hand history):
- You did not have the best hand. Either you do not remember the hand correctly or you do not know the rank of poker hands. Please read the rules.
- There were side pots. You may have won the main pot but players with bigger stacks won the side pot(s) with worse hands, because you were not involved in them. Please, read and make sure you understand the rules before playing and definitely before claiming that the game made an error.
13. How do I change my user profile?
At the main screen, press the menu button on your phone and then settings in the menu that appears. Under the "User information" section, press "Edit profile".
14. Why is the chat censored?
First, please note that the filter can be turned off in the settings screen or by pressing the Menu button when at a table and pressing Chat opts. This is because of two facts: 1) people misbehave and 2) people expect us to prevent this/punish the people who misbehave. We do not have the time to constantly monitor the tables, therefore the filter exists.
15. How do I change my username?
16. Is the game rigged in any way?
Absolutely not. People play differently when they do not lose any money. This often leads to "unbelievable" situations.
17. Is the shuffling random?
Yes, the shuffling is completely random. The card deck is shuffled using a hardware-based true random number generator.
18. May I sell or buy chips from other users?
No. Failure to comply results in account deletion.
