Are you tired of dealing and shuffling? Let Bold Poker use your iPad and smartphones to be your personal poker dealer at your next home game.

Bold Poker uses a unique approach that preserves all the good parts of your weekly poker round: the interaction stays all the same as when playing with real cards, you still use chips for the betting but Bold Poker takes the hassle of dealing and shuffling away from you, allowing you to play two to three times as many hands as you normally would.

Here's how it works:

* An iPad in the middle of the table shows the button and the board cards
* Every player gets the free Bold Poker app on his smartphone which displays his hole cards
* To deal a new hand all you do is move the button on the iPad to the next player and new cards are dealt
* Swipe on the iPad to reveal the flop, turn and river
* Bold Poker automatically takes care of connecting all your devices

You can use Bold Poker to deal all night long for you for free. The dealer will only take a five-minute long "cigarette break" after every 30 minutes of play. Or unlock to get a full night of uninterrupted professional play.

Please note:
* Bold Poker requires an internet connection to play (Wi-Fi recommended for hour long-rounds).
* You will still need chips to play
* Each player will need an Smartphone with the free Bold Poker app installed

We hope you enjoy this new way of playing poker!

Version History

Launched Jun 28, 2013 (almost 6 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 4 months, on average.

(Current)
Version 3.5

We've discovered a even better way to deal with it: Bold Poker now comes with automatic button movement and an all-new Tip-The-Dealer pricing.

Assign each players seating position by sliding his chip on the board iPad to his seat and move the button to deal the high card. Now Bold Poker can keep track of the button position.

Whenever there's only one player left in a hand or someone discards his cards after a showdown the button will move to the next position and a new hand will be dealt.

But there's more: Only after you've played more than 100 hands and won a hand we now ask you for an optional tip — you decide if you want to give one, two, five or ten dollars - or just dismiss the card and continue playing play for free.

We hope this gives you no more excuses to not deal with it, please give it a try and let us know how you like it at hello@boldpoker.net

Version 3.4

Four-color deck is finally here! We're also introducing a second (red) card back that's used every other hand. This is so you can always be sure you've gotten the current hand.

We've also a few annoying bugs. In some cases the dealer button could still cover up the board cards, sorry about that. Another bug could cause your screen to dim when it shouldn't.

As always, please get in touch whenever you're running into any issues or have any other feedback at help@boldpoker.net Thanks and keep dealing with it!

Version 3.2

Bold Poker is bringing poker to the blind: Bold Poker now supports playing using VoiceOver. Connect your headphones and have your cards read out to you.

And we're trying our best to teach people how to play right on the welcome screen.
