Terminal Poker

Terminal Poker is doing things a little differently from the other mobile poker apps. It’s not just that its apps are browser based (no download required), the mFortune and Switch Poker for iPhone app are similar in this sense. The most important difference is that its games, which Terminal calls “Fast Poker”, follow the Rush Poker format popularised by the sleeping poker giant, Full Tilt.

1. Game Selection

Fast Poker is perfectly suited to the small mobile poker operator’s market – there’s no waiting around for games because places at tables are allocated and reallocated on the fly to ensure you always have a hand to play.

Other than the novel approach to seating players, Fast Poker is fundamentally no different to an ordinary poker game. Whether you’re playing Texas Hold’em ring games on your smartphone or Omaha tournaments on your iPad, the cards are the same as they are everywhere.

2. Fairness

It’s hard to find any information on the Terminal Poker licensing or auditing, which is a shame. On the plus side, since its part of the Instadeal network, which was recently granted an Alderney gaming license (see the AGCC’s list of licensees), you should feel fairly confident that you are signing up at a safe place.

3. New Player Bonus

Terminal’s mobile poker bonus is a very competitive 200% for new players – make a first deposit of €200 and you could get up to €400 free poker money to play with.

You’ll need the Terminal Poker bonus code CCGNEW to activate it. As with most poker bonuses you won’t get it all at once – you will clear it in €20 batches.

Bonus Clearing Requirements

Assuming you make a deposit of $40 using the Terminal Poker bonus code, you are entitled to receive $80 in poker bonus cash. To clear this you will need to contribute $200 to rake, which equates to a very reasonable clearing requirement of two and a half times your bonus (2.5 x).

4. Player Pool

TerminalPoker.com belongs to the Instadeal network, which means that the player pool is not as small as with other dedicated mobile poker operators. Plus, with its Fast Poker format waiting for games is not much of an issue. The question is more likely to be how competitive you judge the other players to be.

5. Mobile Banking

The deposit options available at Terminal Poker are:

  • Skrill (the new MoneyBookers brand)
  • PaySafeCard
  • CreditCards from VISA or Mastercard
  • Wire Transfer
