Our Appeak Poker Review

Appeak Poker offers fast and simple Texas Hold’Em action, including multi-table tournaments, at a variety of stakes. You’ll always find plenty of real money poker games running as Appeak Poker, as this is one of the more popular free mobile poker apps, with over 70,000 active users and more than 1 million downloads to date. Plus you get a daily 1,0000-chip bonus and your choice of 40+ avatars! 

Appeak Poker is great for players just looking to get some poker basics before a home game or before depositing at an online poker room. 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 - 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.

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.

Appeak App Software & Features

Appeak Poker offers basic 2D graphics to keep the poker app simple, yet functional. This including all the standard check/fold, check, fold and bet buttons, four-color deck, plus betting slider, and mirrors playing on a real online poker site. You also get your own player profile that shows your level/progress. For example, the profile will exhibit your best hands, winning percentage, and when you’ll next level up, as well as in-game chat which allows you to discuss poker hands, poker strategy or just chat with anyone at your table!

Thanks to its streamlined software Appeak Poker offers one of the fastest online poker experiences available on mobile platforms, allowing you to get in and get playing in record time. Appeak Poker also scales well to many devices with different screen sizes. The cards look good and it’s easy to see how much is in the pot at all times, along with all the card suits and values. 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 Free Chips

Lots of poker apps seem to have "hacks" or "cheats" to get free chips for your account. While this may not always check out, there's no need to worry about that with the Appeak app. Along with your startup bonus of 5,000 free chips and a daily bonus of 1,000 chips, you'll also have more ways to win free chips via daily challenges. 

You can work your way up the leaderboard for even bigger chip prizes. Or even buy as many chips as you like (max 5,000,000 at a time) to build your bankroll, perhaps even enter higher-stake events and reach "pro" status. Win one of the fun Sit & Go tournaments on the Appeak Poker app and you'll also be rewarded with a cavalcade of new chips.

Daily Achievements & Leaderboard

Appeak Poker doesn’t have a loyalty program but it does have a fun daily achievement system. The achievement system rewards players for accomplishing small tasks such as winning a certain number of hands. Thus helping motivate you to improve your game. Players can then move up reward levels and take control of the Appeak leaderboard! Beat the competition to become the best player. 

Duel With Friends

Using the Appeak mobile app, you can't set up and play private poker games with a whole group of friends. However, you can only duel with friends one on one. For ways to play private games with friends from home, click the below link:

Find an Appeak Game - Fast!

All current Appeak Poker tables running are listed in the lobby - they are all Texas Hold’em. 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 SnG level is 400 chips; the biggest is a massive 2,000,000! 

Here are the variants you’ll find: 

  • Cash Games - players come and go from the table as they wish
  • Sit-and-Go - one-table tournaments that play until one person has all of the chips
  • Double Up
  • Bingo Bango
  • Blackjack and slot side games

Soft Competition and Traffic

As with most free poker apps the competition on Appeak Poker is weak - obviously because the players are still learning. If you want tougher competition, join the small community of higher-stakes Appeak poker games. Still, we have to reiterate that if you want to make real money, this is not the app for it and you will be better off downloading a real-money poker app. But as it is, Appeak Poker is the perfect poker tool to adjust to online vs. live poker without risking any cash because there’s no "currency" in play. 

However, there’s a pecking order of poker talent - because the higher you play up the leaderboard, the tougher the competition. You can also buy chips to level up faster. Still, there's a friendly, international player community who are happy to chat about poker hands and advise new players. So if you're looking for a fast, free and super fun way to learn the game of poker, Appeak Poker is for you.

Appeak Poker is a global app with players joining from around the world - including the USA, Canada, and UK. However, traffic will be low in off-peak hours, there will be more low-stakes cash games running, but medium-high stakes will have 1-3 tables going at best. Best thing to do is use your registration code to invite a few friends and get a game going or even duel one-on-one.

At Appeak you can have fun playing poker and also make friends. You can chat with other players and send them friend requests. You can see where they’re from via the country flag next to their avatar at the table or in their profile. All in all, the games offer a friendly atmosphere, rather than a cut-throat competition that you may find at some bigger poker apps. This is also a nice play money poker app because you know you’re playing against real people and not just a computer. 


If you need help figuring out the app software and features, the comprehensive FAQ has it covered. During the game, everything is pretty straightforward and the play's easy to follow in general. The rules of the game are even included in the app itself. Still, if you want to get in touch with the Appeak team, you can reach our team through Facebook. Just pop a message and someone will get back to you, usually the same day. It goes faster if you include your player ID from the get-go.

Click on one of the three prompt cards on the home screen - Explore or play to get started. Register via email or Facebook to create your user account and profile to take advantage of the 5,000 chip signup bonus, Appeal Poker games, and 1,000-chip daily bonuses.

If at first you struggle with the pace of play, stick with it! Making quick poker decisions - or even getting used to setting your bet amounts or using the different buttons - takes time.

Appeak Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I forget my Appeak 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.
  • What if I don't receive my daily Appeak bonus?

    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:

    1. User A is in timezone EST (which is UTC -5 hours).
    2. A logs in at Feb 11, 8:00 PM and receives the daily bonus. The local server time is Feb 12, 1:00 AM.
    3. 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.
    4. Thus both of A's logins occurred on the same day according to the server, and A will have to wait 6 hours to receive the next daily bonus.
  • I have lost my Appeak chips, what do I do?

    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. Note that buying or selling chips to other users results in account deletion.

    Did your chips disappear when you left the table?

    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.
  • Can I add an email even after registration?

    Yes. Go to the settings screen and tap "Edit Profile." Click next and enter your email.
  • When do Appeak Players Show or Muck Hands?

    Main approaches to showing/mucking:

    1. Home Games - All players at showdown must show their hand.
    2. Standard Poker Site - Players get the option to muck their hand in some showdown situations.

    Appeak Poker previously used the first approach, but now uses the second. All the show and muck actions happen at the same time, to speed up the game. Players gave feedback (and we agree) about not wanting to give out compromising information about their play.

    Scenarios where Appeak Players Show Cards

    1. If everybody goes all-in before the river card has been dealt, then everybody shows their hand in no specific order.
    2. When the hand goes to showdown and not everybody goes all-in before the river, then players show their hands in a specific order.

    Appeak Poker rules for showing or mucking

    1. The last player to make a bet or raise shows first. Even if the last raise was made pre-flop.
    2. 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.
    3. 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 ...".


    On the Turn: A bets 50, B calls, C calls, D calls, E calls River: All players check

    A is the last better/raiser, so they show first - a pair of fives.
    B has a pair of fours, so they can muck.
    C has a pair of sevens, so they decide to show.
    D has a pair of sixes and mucks (because their hand is worse than C - the best hand).
    E has a flush, so he shows and wins the pot.
  • Poor connection lost me chips - can you help?

    Try connecting again in a few minutes. If the problem persists, try again in an hour. 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 too many nearby cell phones or bad reception, for example. If possible, play on WIFI.
  • I had the best hand but lost anyway - 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.
  • How do I change my username, info & remove friends?

    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". However, you can't change your username.

    To 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.
  • Why is the Appeak 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.
  • Is the Appeak game rigged in any way?

    Absolutely not. People play differently when they do not lose any money. This often leads to "unbelievable" situations. And yes, the shuffling is completely random. The card deck is shuffled using a hardware-based true random number generator.
