As one of the first iPoker skins, Winner Poker launched a brand new mobile App in autumn 2013, as mentioned previously. We took the time for a detailed test of the html5-based web-app and show you all the pros and cons and guide you through the installation process. To get started with the app follow this link to Winner Poker’s mobile site. Look out for the Poker icon and choose “Play now”. On the following screen, search for the register button on the right hand side. You can open an account and make a deposit right from within the App. For new players, Winner Poker offers a 250% deposit bonus of up to $2000. When you’re done, save the app to your home screen and launch it from there. Now you can play poker in fullscreen mode.

Winner Poker App’s main functions

Lobby of the Winner Poker App

This is the lobby of the new Winner Poker App

After logging in for the first time you’ll get redirected to the lobby. Here you can choose your preferred game type and limits, mark your favourite tables and join the action. Also shown in the lobby screen: your VIP-level and the amount of available money. Go to the menu to get access to the cashier and make deposits or withdrawals. The “My-Account”-tab gives you a detailed overview of your VIP-status, bonus- and ipoints-standings. Choose settings to make changes to your Winner Poker App. Here you can select the “show all-in odds” option, change the card’s design, for example to a 4-color-deck, or choose your preferred betting option in the “Select Bet”-tab. During our test, we had the problem that some of our selections were not saved – annoying.

Amount of game types in the Winner Poker App

The Winner Poker App offers only real-money games, play-money games are not supported. There are two different game types to choose from. Speed Cash – a fast fold variant – and regular cash – a ring game variant – each as NoLimit Holdem. Sit&Goes, tournaments, Omaha or PotLimit games are missing. All tables are 6max tables – fullring or heads up tables are not available. The playable limits reach from the micro-to the midstakes.

Gameplay

We tested the Winner Poker App on a Galaxy Tab 2, an iPhone4, iPhone5 and iPad. On the slower device the App stuttered particulary, especially in the menus. At the tables, the lag decreased and the app ran pretty smoothly. We had no technical problems or crashes during our test. We lost the server-connection twice, but it was not clear if that was induced by the app or the local internet connection. So, let’s take a look at the gameplay: The display of the poker play is neat. The commands are at the bottom of the screen. If you play Speed Cash, the App offers you the Speed Fold option on top of the standard commands fold, check, call, bet and raise. For the bet and raise commands there are two different options from which you can choose in the menu. If you go for the single action mode, you have a betslider on the right handside of the screen where you can select the amount to bet and then hit the raise or bet-button. If you go for the double action mode, you have to press bet or raise. A new command line opens, where you can choose between min- and maxbet, x-times the bigblind or a potsize raise. Additionally, you have the betslider on the right handside. Both variants could not really persuade us. On the one hand, the betslider is too inaccurate to bet the right amount of money quickly. On the other hand, the required extra-click of the double-action variant disturbed the gameplay the longer we played. There are other poker apps on the market, which have better betting options.

Summary

On the technical side, the Winner Poker app is ok. It runs solid and relatively smoothly. The controls are acceptable but could be more comfortable. The menu is partly too intricate and some of our set options were not saved. The betting options are needlessly complicated. The number of playable game types is very low. In conclusion we have to say that Winner Poker has to offer more in the future to get a chance to persist in the mobile poker market.
