Playtech announced back in April that an upgrade to that iPoker upgrade would see the software offering a mobile platform. Despite the anitcipation surrounding the announcement, we’ve yet to see any iPoker operator launch their mobile poker platform, until now.
Winner Poker has officially launched the first iPoker mobile client. The client is currently not available from the app store, but a fully downloadable client is available from the mobile browser.

The move will undoubtedly be welcomed by players and operators alike – With mobile compatibility becoming more important by the day. Clearly there’s significant development barriers to developing software for a network over a standalone site, hence why it’s taken so long for iPoker to catch up. Bet365 announced two weeks ago that they were on the verge of launching their mobile poker client, but one can only assume that technical hiccups have postponed that launch.
It’s certainly a landmark announcement for the operator and for the network. Be certain to expect other iPoker operators to follow suit.
