Texas Hold’em Poker

Texas Hold’em Poker is by far the most popular poker game in the industry. Its popularity has of course invaded social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter and is certainly the favored poker variant on most poker websites. The game has evolved in different versions as developed by prestigious names in gaming, like the aforementioned Zynga, as well as Gameloft. Texas Hold’em Poker carries a versatile characteristic since it can be played as mobile poker on smartphones, tablets and other communication devices as well as on PCs and game consoles.

Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2

The Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2 is a poker game variant available for the Sony PlayStation 3. This is considered an improved version of its predecessor, which also became successful upon its entry in the industry. A real-table tournament is a great way for you to enjoy the opportunity to play with expert poker players such as Sam from Sam and Max, Claptrap from Borderlands, and Ash Williams from the Army of Darkness. The Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2 provides a rewards program where players can enjoy in-game items that are very useful as well as bounty unlocks, which can be used for game strategies.

World Series Poker

The World Series Poker is made especially for Microsoft Windows-powered platforms and the Xbox 360. This poker game variant allows you to play as a single player or compete with other opponents through an online tournament. From the comforts of your own home, you can enjoy a game of poker as if you were in the company of other players. The latest version created is Full House Pro, which introduces a wide range of game modes and a valuable free chip, which can be enjoyed anytime.

As the game of poker continues to evolve and flourish, more poker games are sure to make their debut.
