Your tablet running Electric Poker Dealer acts as a server, and players can connect to it with their own devices, like smart phones or tablets. For that to work, the device of each player must connect to the same Wi-Fi network as your tablet. You don’t even need an internet connection, but just a local network. So if you want to run your poker game in some isolated mountain cabin without any internet connection, that will work too!
Simply scan the QR code appearing on the tablet with your device, and you will be seated by opening a link in your browser. Most popular browsers and devices are supported. Make sure your device can access the same Wi-Fi your tablet runs on!
You can choose between a variety of poker games. Among the currently supported games are Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. If you fancy something more exotic, try Shortdeck poker or Greek Hold'em!
Optionally, you can let Electric Poker Dealer display the equity of each player’s hand at showdown. Additionally, Electric Poker Dealer can even figure out instantly the odds / equity of each player’s hand before showdown! It just assumes that all the other players still in the hand have random hole cards, and computes your chances based on that. That is a very useful feature for beginners, or if you want to get a feeling for a game you are not used to, like 6+ Hold’em.
