Something neat out of Android Forums today. Spotted by Moondrifter, Full Tilt is working to bring Android’s first poker game to that will allow you to play for real money against real people. The name of the app will reportedly be named “Rush Poker,” named after the game type on their site for those who need to shuffle some chips in a hurry. It’s the perfect game type to feature on a mobile phone considering how scarce time might be in any given situation.


A statement by Full Tilt:

It gives Android devices another advantage as Apple refuses to allow real money gambling via its App Store

According to Poker Jolt – the outlet that broke the news – Rush Poker has entered a public, yet limited beta for some of their mobile phone users. I’ve never been one to gamble – partially because I suck at it – but if you’re a fan of Full Tilt and you want to earn some real money on the go, you’ll want to keep an eye out for Rush Poker.

[UPDATE]: The folks over at Full Tilt hit us up with a link to a little blog post showing off a bit of the beta for Rush Poker. Also revealed is a list of compatible Android 2.2 devices that includes the following handsets:

  • Acer Liquid Stream S110
  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Droid Incredible
  • HTC Evo 4G
  • HTC Google Nexus One
  • HTC Desire HD
