My Poker Bankroll is a wonderfully simply concept for an app which basically enables you to track your wins and losses in Poker, or any other cash game for that matter, so that you can get an undeniably objective idea of just how successful a gambler you are.
Gambling addiction is a very real and surprisingly common issue which ails many unfortunate people. I think that having an app such as My Poker Bankroll handy on your iPhone is a fantastic idea because you can see your all-time win/loss figure.
If you’re clearly losing hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, then that figure will be right in your face and you’ll simply have no choice but to take the necessary steps to overcome the addiction.
I should preface this review by saying that My Poker Bankroll is a suitable tool for anyone who likes to frequently play Poker or any other casino-style cash games.
You don’t need to be suffering from a gambling addiction in order to benefit from this app, and I think that having a number on your iPhone to represent how well you’re doing will help you to be more strategic with your bets, perhaps being more conservative if your losses are mounting.
Using this app is very straightforward and simply involves tapping the circle in the middle of the screen to bring up the data input fields. From here you can add Buy-In, Re-Buy, and Cash-Out values and then save it to update your running total.
The default currency that My Poker Bankroll uses is U.S. Dollars; however, if you tap the USD portion of the circle on the main screen you’ll have access to a full list of currencies from around the world. So wherever your gambling passions take you, you’ll be able to accurately track your winnings.
The last thing I want to do is marginalize this app or its developer by recommending that it be used predominantly for gambling addicts, but I really do think this is a great tool to help you identify when your losses are becoming too great.
I’m not sure that I feel the price of this app is entirely justified because of the limited functionality, but it fits a very specific niche and those of you who are afflicted with a gambling addiction will definitely get more than your money’s worth.
All in all, My Poker Bankroll is very well-designed with a simple and easy-to-use interface and a no-nonsense approach to telling you exactly how your bankroll stands. I would definitely recommend this app to any casino-goer.
