When a player first enters the game, he/she can invite friends to play via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, or choose to challenge a random opponent to a match. After that, the goal of Poker Buddies is simple: knock out your opponent by taking all of his/her chips. Each match is a one-on-one, winner take all game of tournament rules Texas hold'em that does not end until all chips are in a single player's possession. Because Poker Buddies is a turn-based game, you can play multiple matches simultaneously against different opponents.
There are two unique features that set Poker Buddies aside from the multitude of other poker apps available through iTunes. The first feature is that you can log-in and play two different ways: via an iPhone or iPad, by visiting the game's website. This gives players the ability to customize their experience by choosing exactly how and when they log on and play throughout the day. The other major feature is that players earn points with each match they win, and these points will register them to possibly win any number of real world prizes ranging from gift cards to HDTVs. To make things even better, players will also earn Career High Roller Points which can be redeemed for instant win prizes.
The vibrant, high resolution graphics on Poker Buddies capture all the fun and excitement of a real high-stakes Texas hold'em game, and the easy to use interface makes it easy for beginners and seasoned pros alike to get in the game.
