Video review of the Red Kings Android app including how to install.
Red Kings Android App
As mentioned, Red Kings’ app was developed by Ongame. It’s a downloadable app which is stored on your phone or tablet, rather than a browser based game. The fact that the graphics and sound files are stored locally means it runs smoother and has better graphics than some of the browser based sites. Scan the QR code on the right to download the app directly to your device now.
Developing a poker app which works well and is easy to use on a small screen was a big challenge, but Red Kings have pretty much nailed it. The graphics are very high contrast so it’s pretty easy to pick out the important information like bet sizes, stack sizes, and of course the cards and the controls for choosing your action and sizing your bets and raises are pretty reliable and it’s unlikely that you’ll have too many costly misclicks.
You can play using WiFi or across a 3G connection and you can register for an account from within the app and you can deposit and withdraw as well, which is a nice feature. One point to note about the Red Kings app is that you have to sign up for an account before you download the app, but thankfully the registration process is much easier than at many sites.
Games on the Red Kings Android App
At the moment the Red Kings app only supports cash games but an update geared towards supporting sit n go and multi-table tournaments is coming soon. Other sites have already started to add this functionality, so the pressure is really on Red Kings and Ongame to release the update soon. In the meantime, the cash game action is very good there. The app allows you to play limit, pot limit and no limit Holdem, at a variety of stakes from 5c/10c all the way to $3/$6 and you can play at heads-up, 6-seater and 10 seater tables.
The latest addition to the app in March 2013 is the addition of ‘Strobe Poker’ which is Red Kings’ new fast fold poker variant. Fast fold poker really speeds up the game which is great for players on mobile devices, and means they can get way more hands in, rather than waiting around for other players to act.
Bonuses and Promotions at Red Kings
As stated, Red Kings has a comprehensive bonus system to suit all bankrolls. If you’re going to be playing exclusively on Android then you should choose a smaller bonus as you won’t be playing lots and lots of hands, but if you’re going to use your account to play at your PC as well then choosing a bigger bonus is the way to go. They offer incremental bonuses where a small amount is released into your account at a time as you play, or lump sum bonuses where you earn a certain number of player points and then the entire bonus is released into your account in one go. The smallest incremental bonus is released into your account $10 at a time, while the biggest bonus gives you a lump sum of $2,500 when you get the required number of player points.
The main reason to play at Red Kings is the first deposit bonus. The bonus is unmatched by any other Android poker site. When you’re done with the first deposit bonus, there are plenty more ongoing promotions too. With the Ongame software, you know what you’re getting and it’s one of the best Android poker apps on the market. Withdrawal times are good but you can only deposit and withdraw with credit card, bank transfer, or ewallets like Neteller and Skrill.
