The growth of online poker in recent years has led to more and more players looking for an online poker. But what makes a good app? Here’s our guide to finding the best online gaming app…

Do Your Research

Whether you’re looking for a poker app or a gaming app, it is always worth spending some time looking at the range of apps available.

Don’t just look for the app with the best reviews, make sure you look at why some reviews are scoring lower. Google is your friend – take time to find all the information you can.

Look for Value
A new gaming app or poker app can often mean a new welcome bonus. It can also mean new games and new promotions.

When it comes to online poker, find out as much as you can about a sign-up bonus, but also make sure the poker room treats its existing players well. For example, GGPoker offer a $600 sign-up bonus for new players registering at

They also know the value of loyalty, and that is a big reason why the Fish Buffet rewards program is so popular with players.

When you are playing at GGPoker, you know you’ll be earning cashback every time you play!

Free Or Paid Apps?

Most poker apps are free providing you are registered with the poker room in question. Some gaming apps come with a fee, however. Others will have annoying adverts. When you are doing your research, make sure you find out how the free app compares to any premium version of it. If you are spending money on a paid app, make sure you find reviews and reports from other users as well.

Responsible Gaming

You likely want to play poker with a responsible operator. Make sure you research how a poker room or a gaming brand is licensed and regulated in your country. After all, if you are spending money at the poker tables or at an online casino, you want to do so knowing your money is safe and your winnings can be quickly processed. It is better to be safe than sorry!


Are your funds secure? Is your information secure? Chances are, everything is safe and secure. But it makes sense to think about the poker room or gaming app you are joining!

Mobile Support

More people than ever before are playing online poker and casino games via a mobile device. A mobile app or the ability to access games via your mobile browser are a must these days. Any reputable online poker room or casino will offer mobile access!


We live in the content age. A good gaming app or poker room will have a good online presence and should have several social media channels where you can find out more about them.

When selecting a new poker app or a new gaming brand, make sure it suits your own needs. Do your research, and don’t be afraid to contact the company directly with any questions that you may have.

Choose wisely, and have fun!
