What’s Zynga Poker, Exactly?

Zynga Poker was originally designed as a social game for Facebook and aimed to simulate a real-life poker experience in a social, virtual environment. Zynga later developed apps for Apple, Android and Windows, whilst still offering the Facebook option.

The animations on Zynga Poker are quite original and this makes for a very enjoyable poker experience, aided by the smooth and intuitive gameplay. There are a variety of table options for both the casual user and the more experienced, offering something for everyone.

Of course, the comfort of playing through your tablet is one which cannot be matched when using a desktop and the touch screen interface gives the game a more tangible feel. The significant difference between Zynga Poker and other poker platforms is that Zynga players don’t play with real money.

This can lead to styles of play that do not mirror a real poker game, thus making it difficult for Zynga players to transition to poker played with real money. Generally, betting is more reckless and care-free with the virtual chips of Zynga. This is something to be mindful of if you play poker for real money, or plan to.
