Poker Friends app review: play on private tables 2021



What we have here is the first poker app to play with friends in the world that enables you to create private poker tables and play against whomever you want. Although you might be a whiz against strangers, how well do you think you’re going to fare against Aunt Gladys? Pull up a seat and let’s find out what this new app is about

The best card games for iPhone-2021

I’ve never really been a fan of online private poker games, but I have reviewed a few over the past year and I’m definitely very much impressed by what the developer has managed to pull together in this poker with friends app, both in terms of the features offered and the overall presentation. Having checked it out, we would say it is one of the best poker apps for private games. 

This private poker game app has definitely cornered the market on private poker games with pre-selected players, and I can definitely see it become hugely popular over time. Check it out on your iPhone or iPad so check it out today and you’ll be bankrupting your family in no time!

This private table poker app runs on devices with iOS 8.0 or later with support of up to iOS 14.0 and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It will need 202.3 MB of free memory space on your mobile device to download and install. Check out our poker apps list for more options.

Dishearten Your Opponents With Shameless Trash Talk

You can create games with Random Opponents or select Play Live Now to join a table with online opponents who are playing right now. It appears as if you can also achieve this latter option by simply tapping the Play Live button to jump straight into a live game.

One fun aspect of this game is the Trash Talk feature. When playing any game you can enter a live chat room with your opponents to start dealing out their fair share of abuse, but please let’s keep things nice and clean, shall we!
