While everyone in tech-land is wondering whether to “go native” or experiment with a cross-platform mobile gaming solution like HTML5, mFortune have characteristically just got on with it. In a few short years they have built the single most universally compatible mobile poker room currently (as of late 2012) available. And they’ll give you £5 free to start playing with too.
If you own an Android phone or an iPad you may well be wondering why you should care about mFortune’s super-compatibility. Several poker operators have released either poker for Android or iOS-friendly apps or both. So what that mFortune poker can be played on Nokia phones, Blackberry Playbooks and a Motorola Droid too?
Up to a point.
Everyone’s experience in a poker room will, pretty much by definition, be different. At least at the mFortune tables you can some comfort from the fact that, as a completely independent network, the players to your left or right will be using much the same software and hardware as you are.
OK so you might have swooshing and swiping on yoru HTC Desire, small blind might be using a Galaxy Tab and big blind could be pushing buttons on a Nokia E60. You’re all more or less in the same sail boat. The bottom line is that none of you is piloting a big desktop-driven oil tanker. Without PC players the games should be fairer.
The other thing that sets mFortune apart from the crowd is its mobile poker sign-up bonus. To us at mobilepokerapp.mobi it’s still something of a surprise that more operators aren’t offering specific bonuses to attract new players to their mobile apps. It seems like the people at mFortune know that the secret to the success of their independent network will be achieving the critical mass of players needed for serious poker network.
Offering five pounds free, with no deposit required, seems like a pretty good place to start.
No need to worry about whether you will ever manage to contribute enough to rake in order to receive your first instalment of your $1000 poker bonus: get £5 just for joining and start enjoying the action.

Meanwhile, its Texas Holdem mobile poker app is the only multi-player poker game for Blackberry currently available. The fact that this game works on so many different handsets means that while the mFortune poker network is not affiliated with any of the big online poker networks it still manages to attract a decent player pool.
