    Can I play SkyPoker on a Nokia Lumia? Also, does it support multitable play?

    I was wondering the same thing about whether the Sky Poker app works on a Windows Phone tablet but I can't find anything on their support site. Since you play it from your phones browser I'm guessing that it will work on a Nokia Lumia.

    They do mention in the support section that Multi Table games are currently not possible.

    Most HTML5 poker web apps work fine on most Windows Lumia smartphones even though the apps aren't officially supported. The poker sites just don't want to be flooded with support requests from Nokia Lumia users.

    If you use the Sky Poker app on an iPhone you can now login using just your fingerprint thanks to Apple TouchID. My Samsung Galaxy T S has an inbuilt fingerprint scanner so I was wondering if this facility will also be available on Droids?

    Samsung Galaxy have a larger market share of the smartphone market than Apple so I'm pretty sure that Sky Poker will soon add Android fingerprint authentication to their apps.

    Just a note for anyone looking to download the Sky Poker app to their Android device, there actually isn't any native apk file that you can download. According to the Sky Poker FAQ section "There is not an Android app but all none iOS tablets can play on their tablet within a browser".

    They also go on to say that because of Google Play's current policy regarding real money gaming and sports betting apps they don't have any plans to develop a dedicated Android app anytime soon.

    i like the fact that the sky poker app has automatic top-up. i hate having to leaves the tables when things are just hotting up.

    direct access to the skypoker strategy section is also a pretty useful feature.
