Full Tilt Poker has launched a beta version of its mobile application that will feature its speed poker offering, Rush.
The launch of the Rush application will be the first mobile offering since Full Tilt’s acquisition by the Rational Group last year. Full Tilt’s mobile Rush application will feature ring game stakes ranging from $0.02/$0.05 to $2/$4 for No Limit Hold’em, Fixed Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Omaha Hi/Lo. The mobile application is currently available as a HTML5 application, but it will be developed into an iOS and Android application in the near future.
Full Tilt Poker will follow sister site, PokerStars, into the rapidly growing mobile gambling market. Stars currently has an iOS application for its speed poker offering, Zoom, and is available in dot.com and dot.country markets. Full Tilt was one of the first companies to offer a mobile gaming platform when it offered a similar product in 2010. However, the events of Black Friday rendered the innovative offering obsolete until its recent relaunch under the new parent company.
Mobile Gaming has become the fastest growing sector in the online gambling market and several operators are developing products to take a piece of this lucrative business. Recently, iPoker and Paddy Power have launched mobile offerings. Most operators have reported great success with their mobile products, although the market is still in its infancy. With the launch of the Rush Mobile Product, Full Tilt Poker is seeking to return to its pre-Black Friday glory.
