For as long as I've been buying BlackBerry devices I have always played Texas Hold'em King. It's been preloaded onto most of my BlackBerry purchases over the past few years and has seen many versions released over that time. Now going into it's 4th release, Magmic Games has decided to take Texas Hold'em to a whole new level by making it a totally online, multiplayer game for BlackBerry. With new features added, Texas Hold'em King live is shaping up to be a great release and now, you can get in on the beta before it's final release. Check out the new features:

  • Fast, Smooth and Fun:  This is the fastest poker game available for BlackBerry. Our quick speeds and easy to use interface ensure that you’ll spend more time taking down pots.
  • Automatic Table Selection: We'll pick the most appropriate table for your Bankroll, Experience and Speed - All you have to do to start playing is press "Play."
  • Slick, Easy-to-Use UI: Our new and improved user interface is designed for high resolution devices providing vivid colors and smooth animations. Poker actions are easy to use and are inspired by BlackBerry's own home screen.
  • Unlock Achievements: Earn over 35 unique achievements that will reward you for winning pots, playing hands and getting lucky. We'll continue to add new and exciting achievements with each free content update.
  • Stylish Avatars: Choose from over 30 unique Avatars, our high-resolution, full detail avatars are sure to make an impression. We'll continue to add more avatars with free content updates.
  • Free Content Updates: THK Live is designed to be easy to update. We'll be able to push out new and exciting features and new content as a direct downloads.
  • Chat 2.0: We’ve dedicated a lot of time and effort to create the best chat system in a poker game. You’ll be able to quickly and conveniently taunt or praise your opponents without missing a hand.
  • Table Themes: Prepare yourselves to play on white sand beaches, or in the High-Roller rooms at a luxurious casino. With Table Themes, you’ll be able to change the look and feel of your poker experience.
  • Pretzil and other Social Media: Connect with friends and integrate with your social networks. 

The best part? The beta is free to download and play. The only thing is that when the game does go official Magmic will be resetting all Bankrolls, Achievements Earned and Player Statistics in order to ensure a level playing field. The download is available from BlackBerry App World today, then you just create an account you're all set.

Giving me the "Not allowed on Torch and/or AT&T" message. Fail.

Michael Hepples

Still waiting on 9800 support for this one.

pkcable

It does not like the 9650's on 6.0 either. :(

webmastir

i usually hate just about all games for BB, but this one has impressed me. not bad. really like it. dev put some work into this one!

BLACKBERRY619

Ya it won't let me download on my torch as well.

pkcable

I take back what I said, it DOES work on the 9650 with 6.0. You just need to go to App World on your device and do a search. :)

smfa1965

So I love this game and went to BB App World and no go due to owning a Torch ( not slamming the Torch since I love mine! ). Not available for my device or carrier. Come on! Let's get more Torch games/apps out there.

Hi Guys,

We haven't forgotten about Torch Users, our QA department is putting it through its paces. It should be available on AppWorld Tomorrow.

Enjoy the Beta!

thebrownguy01

Can't wait to try this out. Thanks a lot for the quick Torch support!

Lobout

It installs but I can't log in with my existing bplay account, and i can't create a new account. The username field blanks out when you change to the password field, and you get an error stating the alias needs to be 4-10 characters long.

fsiurne

Same here on a storm 9530.

handscreate

Doesn't seem to work on the Storm series. I'm getting blank data entry fields & errors trying to create a new account or log in with an existing one

Hi Guys,

We've submitted a fix to AppWorld - Look for the update message when they approve version 0.9.26.

Sorry bout that!

skynny70

Hopefully that update for us Storm users comes soon. I can't create an account on my Storm2 9550 either. Same issues as listed above.

HyperionMark

I'm still surprised that PokerStars or Full Tilt haven't made a mobile app yet where you can play for real money.

skynny70

I wish Full Tilt or one of the other reputable sites would do that as well.

Filmsnob

Can't get past spinning wheel. Appears to be retrieving my existing account info though.

riceastwood

I created an account now it keeps saying server down. Now I'm even more bored in this doctors office.

Hi Guys,

We're down for a quick update.

Coming back real soon!

All good on an OS5.0 9650. THK2 is the only game I didn't get rid of on my Bold and now this. Thanks, Magmic!

GeneGreen23

Will this be available for the Torch today?

Pseven7

The torch build was submitted to AppWorld last night. They normally approve releases within 24 hours.

So it should become available today. Look for version 0.9.26.

icetlv

Appworld is not available in my country.

Any other way to download ??

joe15003

Just downloaded on my 8330, and I am trying to create an account and it does not seem to be working

Pseven7

Hi Everyone,

AppWorld has approved our update (v. 0.9.27.1) which includes Storm / Storm 2 Account creation fixes and the Torch Version.

Check it out!

*Note - AppWorld is known for rolling out updates over the course of 24 hours to variety of carriers/countries. If you don't see 0.9.27.1 available, check back shortly.

icetlv

Thanks
