iPhone poker with 300K
Real Dice has announced Multiplayer Championship Poker for the iPhone and iPod touch. The Texas Hold'em game features live multiplayer games, with options such as ring games, sit-n-go tournaments and multi-table events. The game is not indigenous to the iPhone, and players from other platforms with the game can play against one another; a user on an iPhone can play against a Blackberry, Facebook or Windows user. In addition, over 200 artificially intelligent players are built into the game. Multiplayer Championship Poker is available on the iTunes App Store for $10.
The game was brought to the iPhone platform with the idea of expanding access to the multiplayer virtual poker world. "The expansion of Multiplayer Championship Poker to the iTunes Store now allows iPhone and iPod touch customers to pull up a virtual chair and play Texas Hold'em with the 300,000 users who are already online on a variety of other devices," said Russ McMahon, Director of Mobile Development at Real Dice.
