- How can i get started on playing Mobile Poker?.
You can read our beginners article, Mobile Poker Playing Tips. Many of the Android and iPhone Poker Apps also have instruction tutorials that guide you thru on using the app. Some apps even offer basic poker strategy advice and poker hand rankings.
- Why doesn’t a poker site “x” work on my Smartphone or Tablet?.
This could be down to many things. You should check that you are running the newest operating system on your device, latest java and flash updates have been installed and that your 3G or Wifi connection is working. Also make sure that your phone model is amongst the supported ones. The poker sites that are working with Android mobile have been tested on HTC Desire with Android version 2.2 (2.29.405.5) and Webkit 3.1 Browser.
- How much does it cost to play Mobile Poker?.
All Mobile Poker apps are Free to download and use. You will only pay for your own stakes the same way you would as when playing from a PC.
Additional price to playing comes if you use a 3G/4G data connection.
If you are using a 3G/4G connection the price of your gaming depends on the data transferring prices of your mobile operator. Some operators charge customers per megabyte based on their amount of data used and others offer a fixed price monthly data packages. These data packages can offer unlimited or pre-defined amount of data transfer per month. The unlimited data packages are the way to go if you play/surf/read e-mail etc. often. Then you will only have to pay the same sum every month for your data usage and there will be no surprises on your phone bill.
You can play free of data charges when using a WiFi Wireless Connection. You can use your home internet connection if you share it to your mobile device with a Wireless Router. When playing on the move you can use many free WiFi Hotspots around the world. These Hotspots can be found in many public places such as cafes, restaurants, airports, libraries or a hotels.
Rake is how the poker sites make their profit. Rake is pre-defined % amount of the cash game pot’s and tournament fee’s that the poker site collect.
Some of the rake is then given back to the players as bonuses and rakeback deals and if you play a lot this payback sum can be hundreds of dollars a month!.
Rakeback is a once a month (or sometimes more often) paid bonus that gives you some percentage of your rake back.
Example: You have a rakeback deal with 30% payback percentage paid once a month from your play of the previous month. You rake 155€ during the month of August. You will receive 30% of your rake as payment to your poker account at the start of September. 0,3 x 155€ = 46,5€ rakeback.
Boker bonuses are usually offered one time as a first deposit bonus or reload bonus. (diff. from rakeback that is continuing every month)
First deposit bonus is offered to new customers that make their first real money deposit and start playing poker.
Reload deposit bonus is sometimes available and it gives the player another bonus after the initial first deposit bonus has been played.
All bonuses have some clearing requirements and certain amount of poker points need to be collected (by playing cash games or tournaments) before the bonus is released or can be widthdrawn.
