Online poker is one of the most popular games in the world, appealing to everyone from casual beginners on a budget to serious professionals playing for thousands each hand. It is therefore no surprise that there are numerous online platforms and mobile apps all attempting to attract the millions of poker players.

However, some poker websites and apps are much better than others, so if you are looking to join a new platform, here are five that are definitely worth considering.

 

PokerStars

Where better place to start than the world’s largest poker site? PokerStars’ apps for Android and iOs function every bit as good as the desktop equivalent. Players have the options of cash games, tournaments, sit-and-go’s, lottery-style spin-and-go’s, and Zoom Poker, which allows you to play in a private room with your invited friends.

PokerStars have strived to improve the player experience in recent years and now offer personalized avatars, a large selection of table designs, preset bets, a search feature, a chat feature, and the ability to play quick hands. There is also a web cashier to make quick deposits.

Android and iOS of iPhone users can play up to four tables simultaneously, while iPad users can play up to five tables.

Given PokerStars’ global reach, you will need to download the app that is relevant to your location: if you’re in mainland Europe, then download PokerstarsEU, and UK-based players need PokerStarsUK.

 

Partypoker

Partypoker has invested plenty of time and money in revamping the app in recent years, and the result has been one of the best apps in the poker industry.

Among its many great features include a new portrait layout so you can play with one hand; a new lobby to find all the games within the app, which can be filtered according to personal preferences; a new interactive chat; and Diamonds – partypoker’s in-game currency which can be used to access special features within the app.

Partypoker also offers one of the best multi-table experiences as well as a hand-replayer function, which is a great feature to help players refine their strategies.

With its many player-friendly features and range of games, partypoker has created one of the best gambling apps in the business.

 

888 Poker

Part of gambling giant 888 Holdings which also includes 888 Casino and 888 Sport, 888 Poker remains at the forefront of the online poker world thanks in large part to its excellent and popular mobile app.

The lobby is intuitive and easy to navigate, while players have the option to choose from a number of preset avatars. 888 Poker’s app also has a bet slider, quick seat option, a chat feature, a web cashier, and large action buttons to reduce the risk of costly mistakes being made by a slip of the thumb.

888 Poker is the platform and app of choice for thousands of casual and professional players and as such the company hosts numerous online tournaments that can be played through the mobile app.

 

GGPoker

As the official online poker platform for the World Series of Poker, you better believe that GGPoker has one of the best apps in the business. If it’s a good enough platform for Daniel Negreanu, Bryn Kenney, and Felipe Ramos, then it’s good enough for the rest of us!

That being said, you don’t have to be a professional chasing hundreds of thousands of dollars to enjoy the many benefits of the GGPoker app and site. The app has a social media function that allows you to upload any moments you want directly to your social accounts.

The multi-table experience has been refined and simplified with a swiping feature, so you can now play up to four tables at one time and switch between those tables with a simple swipe of your device.

With lots of games, a slick interface, and the choice of some of the top pros, GGPoker is undoubtedly one of the best poker apps around.

 

Unibet Poker

For casual players more interested in less serious and lower stakes games, Unibet Poker has a great app and a thriving poker community.

There are more than 100 preset avatars to choose from, plenty of cash games, multi-table tournaments, daily promotions, and access to lots of other casino games beyond poker.

Beginners and players who may be intimidated by competitive sites like GGPoker and partypoker, then Unibet Poker offers a great alternative.

Williams duo Russell and Latifi are first Formula 1 drivers confirmed as Virtual Grands Prix return for charity

Williams Racing’s George Russell and Nicholas Latifi are the first Formula 1 drivers to confirm their spots as F1 Esports’ hugely-popular Virtual Grands Prix return this weekend. The Virtual Austrian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday 31 January, kicking off a trio of special live events as team’s battle it out for a share of a charity prize pot that they will donate to a cause of their choosing.

Russell is no stranger to the Virtual Grands Prix after winning last year’s series, following a number of impressive performances, as the online racing action took the place of real-life competition when the pandemic first struck. Russell and Latifi will be representing the current crop of F1 drivers in the first event, alongside some former stars of the sport and future prospects, but the Williams Racing duo will be joined by fellow drivers from the 2021 grid in upcoming events.

Alex Albon, Red Bull Racing Test and Reserve Driver and Wings for Life ambassador, was a firm favourite in last year’s Virtual Grands Prix and returns alongside Jeffrey Herlings, Red Bull KTM Factory rider and MXGP World Champion. Pietro Fittipaldi made his Haas F1 debut last season in Bahrain and will represent the American team in this week’s race, alongside his brother Enzo, whilst former F1 drivers Stoffel Vandoorne and Tonio Luizzi will represent Mercedes and AlphaTauri respectively. Renault academy drivers Christian Lundgaard and reigning FIA F3 champion Oscar Piastri will drive for Alpine, whilst Virtual Grand Prix regular and Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois returns this year for Alfa Romeo. The full line-up will be announced across the official F1 social media channels over the coming days.

While the return of Virtual Grands Prix will give fans around the world excitement ahead of the Formula 1 season starting in Bahrain, the primary focus of this year’s three-race competition is to donate money to charities chosen by the teams. Each nominated charity will receive a significant donation from the overall prize fund, regardless of whether the team finishes first or last in the standings after the three events.

This year’s Virtual Grand Prix events will begin with a sprint-race, featuring the team’s talented F1 Esports Pro Series drivers, to decide the starting grid, before the teams’ pairings, made up of motorsport stars, sporting heroes and celebrities, will take to the track and get ready to race. Silverstone and Interlagos will also play host to upcoming virtual races on Sunday 7 February and Sunday 14 February respectively.

The Virtual Austrian Grand Prix will be broadcast from 18:00 GMT on Sunday 31 January on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, Huya (China) and Weibo (China) channels, as well as broadcast by international television partners including Sky Sports, ESPN, FOX Sports and Ziggo.

Julian Tan, Head of Digital Business Initiatives & Esports at Formula 1 said:

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Virtual Grands Prix back to keep fans entertained during the off-season as we look forward to the year of racing ahead. Last year’s virtual events were a huge success for F1 Esports and we can’t wait to see the F1 drivers and famous faces back in action once again, and this time all in the name of charity!”
