Android Options Available at 888 NJ and WSOP

For months now, players in the state of New Jersey have been enjoying online poker gaming. With sites available from 888 and WSOP, players in the state have been given the opportunity to enjoy high quality software as well as gaming options. As the online poker options have developed, new applications have been released to further enhance game play and make it easier for players to take part in gaming. The two sites recently announced that they are offering a new Android option for mobile poker gaming.

Both online poker rooms in the state of New Jersey now offer Android mobile applications. Players had expected the release to take place in December of 2013 but this did not take place. Party Poker was the first to offer Android capabilities two months ago and finally the other two sites have been able to offer the client.

888 and WSOP NJ were the first to offer an iOS app at iTunes and Party/Borgata were the last to join, so the roles have been reversed when it comes to Android. Android devices are more popular than the iPhone currently so it was important to get this app on the market so casino players would have the option during game play.

With the release of Android for WSOP and 888, there should be a nice increase in gaming revenues as now more players will have the opportunity to compete. Party Poker is currently the top performing online poker site in New Jersey and it will be interesting to see if WSOP and 888 Poker NJ can give them a run for the money with this app release.

The release of Android for the two companies must have been difficult as Bill Rini, the Head of Poker at WSOP, said the release took ‘blood, sweat and tears’. Now the client will have to go through a testing phase and then approval before it can be used on the market.
