partypoker Launches Mobile App in New Jersey
Poker players in New Jersey will now be able to participate in real-money games on partypoker on their mobile devices. Partypoker recently launched a new iOS real-money mobile poker app available for iPhone, iPad or iPad Touch, allowing players located in the Garden State to play via 3G or 4G networks on the move.
The new mobile app, designed by bwin.party, allows players to compete in the following modes: Real Money, Fast Forward, Play Money, and Preview. The real-money games feature stakes as high $25/$50, and Fast Forward games up to $5/10.
As of now there are no tournaments available on the mobile app, but we imagine there will be a high demand now that more than 125,000 online gambling accounts have been created in the state.
Partypoker is the early leader in New Jersey's online poker market which launched on Nov. 26. The site teamed up with the Borgata Hotel & Spa in Atlantic City, and the two online poker rooms share liquidity through partypoker's software.
According to traffic reports by PokerScout.com, partypoker currently boasts around half of the market share in the Garden State, averaging about 240 real-money cash-game players over the past week. The company's top competitor, WSOP.com, has seen an average of 160 players during that same time span.
