Celeb Poker Free: Written iPhone App Review
Celeb Poker Free brings the fun of poker to the convenience of iOS devices. Developed by Viaden, Celeb Poker features both Texas Hold’em and Omaha Hi, and while the app itself is free, purchasing chips with which to actually play poker is obviously not. The price per chip varies, depending upon the quantity of chips purchased. Due to the potentially addictive nature of this gambling game and infrequent reference to substance use, Celeb Poker is rated “12+” in the iTunes store.
Celeb Poker boasts of providing life-like poker games through the convenience of the iOS platform, and overall, this app certainly lives up to its claims. Celeb Poker players can choose between Texas Hold’em and Omaha Hi, and all regular poker rules traditionally used in these games are used in this app. The card shuffling in Celeb Poker is completely randomized, allowing for relatively realistic interactive game play. While Celeb Poker can be played anywhere (and not necessarily in social setting), there still remains plenty of opportunity on this app for socializing with fellow Celeb Poker players if a user is interested. Six languages are featured in this app, allowing for a truly international experience. Inviting friends through social media sites such as Facebook is also an option in Celeb Poker. Finally, players can even purchase in-game food/drinks to share with others at their virtual poker table.
Appearance and Layout:
Celeb Poker is designed to make a player feel like he/she is actually at a poker table, and most the graphics are centered on this concept. Overall, Celeb Poker is visually pleasing, featuring brightly colored graphics with crisp features. Players can be represented by avatars if desired, and obviously the quality of these avatars depends upon the quality of the photograph that each user decides to upload to Celeb Poker. Additionally, the layout of Celeb Poker is simple enough to navigate, with buttons for each possible desired action displayed at the bottom of the screen.
This app is “free”, but any real playing requires a user to purchase chips (like in a real poker game). As such, the overall value of Celeb Poker Free really depends on how much a user wants to invest in purchasing chips for the app. Additionally, since randomized chance plays a huge role in poker, the value of this app will also obviously vary, depending on an individual’s personal luck.
Celeb Poker Free iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
