Poker is one of the most popular card games in the world. There are many variants, and it’s easy to play; just bet a few bucks and try your luck. As you can probably imagine, there are many Android poker apps and games. Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of good ones. Most of these are free to play, but they tune the game to get you to spend money. Unfortunately, that’s an unavoidable premise when playing most mobile poker games.

In any case, here are the best poker apps and games that we could find.

The best poker apps and games for Android

Poker Face

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $399.99 per item)

Poker Face is a new free-to-play poker app for Android. This one is for both seasoned pros and newcomers. Play with friends or meet new ones online from your home. The game has a robust global community. They’re pretty generous with freebies; you will get some free chips when you first start playing the game; additionally, you can invite friends and receive up to 3,000,000 chips as a welcome bonus. Pokerface has features like group video chat poker, daily missions, lucky bonuses, and mini-slot games. The developers are committed to fair play, ensuring a genuine poker atmosphere with randomly shuffled cards. They also have a VIP program that rewards loyalty with in-game benefits as you level up.

Governor of Poker 3

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $299.99 per item)

Governor of Poker 3 is a poker app for Android. It’s not bad; it’s not great; it’s just average. It has some features and variants; there are six poker types to play (including Texas Hold’em), online games, and even a blackjack game. It gives you chips every four hours and a spinner that can give you more. It also comes with cross-platform support. You can play on the web via Facebook, Steam, iOS, and Android. Some reviewers have complained about the poor odds of winning. However, that’s how gambling works. It’s fun as long as you don’t take it too seriously.

Mega Hit Poker

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $299.99 per item)

Mega Hit Poker is an above-average free-to-play poker game. It boasts many free chips, tournaments, various game modes, a slot mini-game, and some social elements. You can even record your games to see how you do. The developers also boast an RNG certification from iTech Labs, which is accessible in the game’s menu. We’re unsure if that makes it any better, but we liked this one, as did most other Google Play reviewers.

Appeak Poker

Price: Free

The Appeak Poker app is lauded as an excellent choice for those seeking a fun and engaging way to enhance their poker skills. Recognized as one of the best poker apps for Android, it is known for its speed and reliability. This fantastic time-killer app allows users to compete with over 100,000 active players globally. Players receive up to 7,000 free chips daily and can increase their stash through various in-game challenges. Additionally, the app offers a selection of over 40 avatars to personalize the gaming experience, making it a top choice for casual and avid poker enthusiasts.

Poker 5 Card Draw

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $129.99 per item)

Poker 5 Card Draw is another new poker game on the list. This one is decent but not outstanding. It features four game modes with both real people and AI bots. The multiplayer game extends to eight players, and online play has a lot of options for players of various skill levels. The training mode with bots works fine. As usual, the cards you’ve been dealt seem unfair, and you’ll see some vast hands on the same round as yours. Thus, we think the RNG has been tweaked a little bit. Otherwise, it’s an excellent little poker game.

Poker Heat

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $200.00 per item)

Poker Heat is a fun free-to-play option. Its claim to fame is its league-based competition. You’ll join one of seven leagues and compete to see who can reach the top. It also features online play with friends or new players from all around the world. Other minor features like the very user-friendly UI, graphics, and freebies make the game fun, but the central part is those leagues. It’s a freemium game, so you’ll have to wait for some free coins if you run out.

Video Poker Classic

Price: Free to play

Video Poker Classic by Tapinator Inc. is a relatively simple video poker app. The developers boast almost 40 game types, along with realistic Vegas shuffling. It was okay in our testing, but nothing mind-blowing. You also get free coins every four hours, offline support, and more. It doesn’t have the best-looking UI, but the mechanics are pretty solid. The big story is the almost 40 game types, though. That should keep the game interesting for a long time. It is a freemium game. However, this one isn’t as bad as many others regarding its freemium elements.

Video Poker Offline

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $199.99 per item)

Video Poker Offline is another simple video poker app. This one offers freebies compared to its competitors. The game features online and offline support, several game modes, and English, Spanish, and Chinese support. The UI isn’t great, but the mechanics are simple enough. It’s one of the few freemium poker games that Google Play reviewers seem to like. It didn’t do too well during our testing.

World Series of Poker

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.99 – $399.99 per item)

The World Series of Poker is probably the best free-to-play poker app out there. It supports Texas Hold’em and Omaha styles of poker. Additionally, you can play online with many people in various scenarios and events. You can also play on the web via Facebook or the official site using your same account. It’ll deliver free chips every four hours, and there are even some slots if you want to play them.

Zynga Poker

Price: Free /In-app purchases ($0.29 – $399.99 per item)

Zynga Poker is one of the more polarizing poker apps on the list. People either like it, or they hate it. On the face of it, it does all the right things. You play live online games against real people. There are a variety of game types and events that you can play. However, many swear this game doesn’t use an accurate RNG method. Whether or not they’re right is up to you. It’s a solid, fun game to play, although if winning all the time is what you enjoy, you might want to steer clear of this one. Give it a shot, at least.
