Carbon Launches Mobile Online Poker in the USA

The changes in online gambling policies in some of the American states has brought about a new content format for those looking for legal online poker sites available now in the American market.

Legal American poker sites web page publishes information about online poker and has revealed that Carbon Poker announced that it has launched real-money mobile poker application.

Carbon published a heads up about its mobile launch saying, “Those playing Carbon Mobile can look forward to both No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Hold’em cash games. At the moment, tournament play isn’t available, but this is likely to change in the future. We’d also like to add other variants to the mix such as Omaha and Pot-Limit Omaha,” explaining the limit on the games available just now.

Currently the Carbon Poker site is having some technical challenges presented by the Android platform. The poker room responded to the posts on various information sites, advising that the site has yet to be fully optimized for use on Android and that they are aware of the issues being reported by players and are working on them. For the time being, users of iPhones and iPads will have the best opportunity to play Carbon Poker via their mobile devices, as Carbon’s mobile client is only fully optimized for iOS5+ for now.

Carbon Poker’s home the Merge Poker Network has been seeing significant reductions in player activity. The competition is perhaps the cause but there has also been a reduction of the total player activity of late. Policy decisions taken by Merge that created a move away from their site included the doing away with player-to-player transfers and the increasing amount of player segregation the network employs from skin to skin.

Players from NY, KY, DC, MD, MI, WA, or LA are not be able to access the real-money mobile client at Carbon as the site does not accept poker clients for real-money play from those states.
