People who love to play online poker can now download real-money poker apps from three giant poker sites, partypoker, 888poker and PokerStars, which have been launched and made available in the Google Play mobile app store in the UK.
Currently, there is a restricted test being carried out in the following areas: France, Ireland and UK, which allows real-money gambling operators to present their apps for approval. However, to be approved, the involved gaming operator must show that they follow and abide by the "applicable laws and industry standards in the country" aside from having just only a valid official gambling license.
Players in the UK can now freely download the poker apps directly from the Google Play Store. Before this, poker players had to install an online poker app from the poker site itself and let it be installed from an "unknown source".
It is uncertain if this new development would significantly increase the number of players utilizing the mobile app, but nevertheless, the apps can now be easily available and can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store in France, Ireland and the UK.
