mFortune Mobile Poker

As with Switch Poker and Terminal Poker, the mFortune operation is entirely dedicated to serving the needs of players of poker on mobile phones, smartphones, iPads and other tablet devices. In fact the mFortune casino offers a lot more than just poker – its mobile casino games include a variety of video slot machines, roulette, blackjack and other card games against the computer including video poker for mobile.

As with the Switch and Terminal operations, mFortune Poker’s games for smartphones are browser based – there is no download needed to play them, whether you’re using a Android platform Samsung Galaxy, an HTC Flyer with the Windows Phone OS, a Blackberry handset or an iPad. The mFortune poker web app is the most versatile out there.

All this means that if you register here you know that you’ll be competing against players that are in a similar situation to you. At PokerStars the other players at the table are likely to be sat at the PC, many with a Heads Up Display (HUD) helping them along, and perhaps an odds calculator open in another window too. This, combined with its UK gaming license, must make the mFortune mobile Texas Holdem game one of the fairest poker apps out there.

Add to that the fact that you can play poker without depositing using its £5 mobile no deposit poker bonus and you have the final ingredient in a winning recipe.

1. Game Selection

Play mFortune’s Texas Holdem app for real money against real players if you fancy your chances. Try one of its video poker apps first if you feel the need to further hone your skills. Click here to compare more real money mobile poker alternatives.

Multiplayer

You can only play no limit Texas Holdem ring games with the mFortune app, which is all most poker apps are offering at the moment. On the other hand the operator is offering players the option to fill all six seats at a table with your poker-playing friends if you feel like holding your poker party online for a change.

It’s a nice feature although I wonder how popular it is.

Against Computer

There are two mobile video poker games among the mFortune casino apps, although only one is probably going to have a positive impact on your play:

  1. Sexy Poker
  2. HiLo Poker

Can you work out which one it is?

2. Fairness

On the plus side, I like the fact that I can pretty sure the other people I’m playing against probably have similar hardware and software to me. OK some may have it a little better (e.g. with their Samsung Galaxy Pad 10″ screen or iPad 3) but I don’t think it will give them too much of an edge.

On the other hand, it’s a little hard to find much detail about what kind of independent testing has been carried out of its mobile poker games. That said, the fact that it is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission may be enough – as the site says in its FAQ, “mFortune games are independently tested and verified by laboratories approved by the UK Gambling Commission”.

3. New Player Bonus

As well as its £5 free no deposit poker sign up bonus, mFortune also has a 100% first deposit deal that means they will match your first deposit up to a maximum of £100. You can start risking your own cash from as little as £3.

Your free poker money is credited to your account straight away, with no waiting whatsoever.

Bonus Clearing Requirements

What this means is that in both cases there is no restriction on withdrawing winnings earned from poker chips bought using your free bonus money.

4. Player Pool

mFortune may be a new mobile poker app as far as your concerned but it’s already been around a while and has built a dedicated following of players who don’t mind sacrificing some of the improved game play you get from a native Android or iPhone app for the knowledge that everyone is in the same boat.

That said, the number of players on line at any moment does vary and you will occasionally have to wait for a game.

5. Mobile Banking

As with everything at the mFortune mobile casino, with banking too you get a mobile friendly experience. You can fund your poker via your mobile phone bill if you choose with deposits of as little as £3 a go. However, many of the usual, as well as a few less usual payment methods are also available:

  • Ukash – a great way to make sure spending habits remain as private as they should be.
  • Credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard and Maestro
