During the last 12 months, the online poker scene in the U.S market has seen a lot of up’s and downs. Some states like Nevada and New Jersey have permitted the launch of online poker websites, while other states have debated on the issues and laws related to online gambling in the United States.
Due to the legal implications involved in the launch of online gambling websites, there has been a huge interest in legal online poker websites as both players and poker enthusiasts try to understand the current status of online poker in the U.S.
Based on a recently release by Carbon Poker, the U.S. will now permit the launch of its new online poker app, which will allow poker fans in the U.S. to play mobile poker online. In a statement, Carbon made an early announcement of its proposed mobile launch by stating
Those playing Carbon Mobile can look forward to both No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Hold’em cash games. At the moment, tournament play isn’t available, but this is likely to change in the future. We’d also like to add other variants to the mix such as Omaha and Pot-Limit Omaha
Carbon Poker has to be extremely careful in dealing with both the legal as well as technical challenges that it is facing with its mobile poker application. The android version of its mobile poker app is facing a number of technical glitches and Carbon Poker confirmed that it is indeed working hard to rectify and sort out these problems at the earlier. Currently, iPhone and iPad poker players will be able to access the mobile poker app as Carbon Poker confirmed that it has been completely optimized for the iOS5+ platform.
However, due to the legal restrictions that some states still enforce on online poker, players from KY, DC, MD, MI, WA, NY or LA will not be permitted to access Carbon’s real-money mobile client as the company is unable to accept poker clients for real-money play from these states.
Carbon Poker is happy with the launch of its new app as the company has been in the process of testing its mobile poker app from February and only recently completed its beta test in August by getting volunteers from the 2+2 forum. On the successful completion of the beta test, Carbon went ahead and launch the live version of its app. Carbon expects to sort out all technical issues related to the android platform and make its app available soon.
