Finding the best poker apps for android that actually work is much harder than it should be for Android users. Forget Google Play Store as this offers no real money apps and finding the right app with the best offers can certainly be tricky.

Anyway, I’ve done all the hard work so you don’t have to!


My favourite Android Real money Poker App is:

William Hill for Android

British gambling giant William Hill offers a very capable Android app with more benefits than I can name.

Possibly most important is the fact that new users get $20 completely free after they deposit. Unlike other “free money” offers, this one has no strings attached, but you must deposit first. Once you do, the money will be credited straight to your poker balance within 48 hours!

As a member of the iPoker network, William Hill enjoys the fourth highest poker traffic ranking in the world and it’s fair to say that opposition is weak, especially in MTTs. This is likely due to the high number of sports bettors and casino players giving online poker a go for the first time.

The final factor that resulted in William Hill being my top recommended poker app for Android, is the company itself. Very reliable, traded on the London Stock Exchange and with shops all over the United Kingdom, you will have to search far and wide to find someone with a serious complaint against William Hill.



888Poker on Android

The kings of free poker money. 888 Poker offers all new users free money without even needing to make a deposit. You get $88 free (At the time of this being published) This consists of $10 which you can use right away and the rest is released in increments. Not bad for no deposit!

Highly recommended if you are looking for some casual fun on your Android.


Bet365 on Android

Offers completely free money for new users at the time of writing. No deposit is required.

Like William Hill, Bet365 is also a member of the iPoker network and shares the same software (with a slightly different colour scheme and of course logo).

One advantage of Bet365 over William Hill, is the fact they have their own cash tables that are completely exclusive to Bet365 i.e. Cannot be accessed elsewhere on the ipoker network.

An interesting contrast vs. the majority of poker rooms who make use of tax efficient locations such as Isle of Man, Malta & Gibraltar. This is all to say, that you can genuinely trust Bet365 and although I have limited experience with them, they tend to rank higher than almost all of their competitors on things such as customer satisfaction.


Pokerstars for Android

Where would we be without the market leader? Pokerstars have more cash game traffic than all the other sites in this article put together.

In terms of the pure software, it is probably the most capable Android poker app in this entire review.

However, they have only made the number four rank in this article because I assume many of you already have accounts and are looking for something different and I do not believe most Android users stand the best chance of winning here.

Because other poker sites have less traffic and / or have taken a stance to completely ban such software, you may play vs someone with sophisticated tools less frequently, or not encounter them at all due to the policy of the poker site (i.e. Unibet).

All in all, if you do not have an account at Pokerstars, you have to sign up if you take online poker seriously. Despite my gripes about tracking software, Pokerstars offer the largest tournaments in the industry by far and signing up today will get you $20 completely risk free!


Unibet for Android

If anyone has been short changed in these rankings it’s probably Unibet.

Founded in 1997, as safe as a house and with their own poker software, Unibet has become a true poker innovator over the last couple of years.

As mentioned above, you do not need to worry about tracking software or the like when playing Unibet on your Android. Players are permitted to change screenames up to three times per day and a few other measures have been implemented to render all types of software aided play useless.

Signing up to Unibet today will get you €10 (Or £10) completely free if you are from an eligible country. If you can take it, go for it!


That’s a wrap. If you think we’ve missed out any of the best poker apps for android or made some horrible mistake just leave a comment below and we’ll check it out.
