» Microgaming Poker Apps

Microgaming’s multi-player real money poker rooms are among the most popular out there. The network isn’t as popular as 888 or Ongame but the poker sites combine ring games and poker tournaments with blackjack, backgammon, roulette, slot machines and every other kind of online casino game you could imagine.

Poker Apps like Ladbrokes
The mFortune mobile casino suite includes a Texas Holdem poker app as well as many other casino and video slot games for mobile phones. Read our full review here. All are Android-friendly but are also compatible with many other handsets, more than any other app on the market so far! (Erm, maybe.)

And now with its mobile poker app, Microgaming just added yet another string to its already hairy bow…

Top 2 Microgaming Mobile Poker

It doesn’t take much to make it into the top two Microgaming mobile poker apps when only two operators have launched them. Nevertheless, here they are in all their glory! (Let’s see how long it is before one of the better Microgaming casinos manages to launch an app too…)

1. Ladbrokes Poker App

Ladbrokes’ mobile poker can only be played by people with Android handsets at the moment, which if you believe the news will be most of us before long – 85% of Spain uses Android? Really?

The app works fine, although there are less features than those on offer by competitors: no tournaments, no multi-tabling and no fancy fast poker format either to level up the mobile poker playing field.

So if you have an Android phone then the Ladbrokes app is not a bad option. Meanwhile, if you’re (still!?) stuck with an iOS device then try our iPhone and iPad poker pages for more detailed comparisons of apps like PokerStars and bwin.

2. Unibet

Like Ladbrokes, the Unibet poker app is also only available for Android devices at the moment. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. The RedKings app is also only compatible with the Android OS but at least it offers new players a better welcome package than the one at Unibet.

Comparing poker sign-up bonuses shows that Unibet are far from being at the front of the value for money field.

All in all the Microgaming poker apps don’t quite manage to make you want to run to your phone and install them. It’s not completely clear whether this is the fault of the Microgaming network, the app software or the individual operators. For now it doesn’t matter but between them they will have to fix things if they hope to get more players using their apps in the future.
