Ladbrokes Launches Mobile Poker
Jan. 30, 2012, Posted by Pokerfarm
You now have the opportunity to play poker on your mobile phone via the Ladbrokes Poker mobile app. Use your existing Ladbrokes account to play poker for fun or real money on your Android Smartphone. If you do not currently have an account then register now on the website and make sure you have some available funds in your poker wallet.
Just follow our step by step installation instructions:
- Version 2.2.x (Froyo)
- Version 2.3.x (Gingerbread)
- Version 3.1.x (Honeycomb)
- Flash Player version 10.1 or higher
- Air version 2.6.x
Download the application
Scan the QR Code with your smart phone scanner. Your mobile phone may come with a barcode scanner, if not you can download and install a QR Code scanner app from the Android Market.
Once you have installed the QR Code scanner app, open the app and point your camera at the QR Code. The scan usually takes a few seconds to process. If at first it doesn't register straight away, please try again. Try holding your phone steadier, closer to the QR Code or even further away. Be sure that you are scanning the entire QR code.
No scanner app on your mobile? Don't worry you can simply go to this link via your mobile internet browser (the app download should start, if it doesn't then you probably need to enable mobile versions of web pages via your internet browser settings):
Follow the onscreen instructions and click on Install
To activate the application after installation has completed just tap the Ladbrokes icon and wait for the sign in window to pop up.
Log in with your Ladbrokes Username and Password
Once you have logged in to poker on your mobile, your user ID and poker alias will be checked and validated. If you don’t have a poker alias, you will need to create one.
Play against players for fun or for real money.
Play for real money
Firstly, make sure that you have funds in your poker wallet before using Android poker, our mobile app is a streamlined version of our new instant play poker, so there are no banking facilities - funds have to be added via the website. Select the Stake/Buy-in level in the selection options to specify the precise type of game you wish to play and then click on “Join Table”.
Quick Seat lets you select which limit and stakes you want to play and then automatically seats you at a matching table.
Play for fun
To choose an online fun table, the same procedures apply as for Real money games.
At the table
You will be dealt in immediately after the completion of the current hand. To increase / decrease bet amount you can use the sliding menu. To leave the table click on 'options' and select the 'exit' option.
The same rules apply to all poker products in regard to connectivity issues. Please refer to the Ladbrokes site terms and conditions for details.
Also, please note that; Your mobile or wireless operator may charge you for data transfer between your handset and the poker servers and the cost for data can vary. Ladbrokes does not charge you for the data you use playing mobile poker. Your mobile or wireless operator may also charge you for the download. Please contact your operator for more information regarding data cost and data plans.
There is a chance that you could experience a disconnection whilst playing mobile poker, due to bad reception in your area. We recommend that you start playing with fun money first to establish whether your area experiences connectivity problems.
When you feel confident that your operator can supply you with good coverage, you can go on to play for real money! In case of a disconnection, the game instantly tries to reconnect.
