Switch Poker was launched in October 2010 and provides mobile poker players with a great real money mobile poker solution. They have now however taken things one step further and have successfully launched their own mobile poker network, a network with a difference. The Switch Mobile Poker Network allows anyone to create their very own mobile poker skin using the Switch Poker mobile client and two have already appeared. Both Part Time Poker and Kings and Queens Poker are now live on the Switch Network and are accepting real money mobile players from around the world...except for the US, France,Turkey and other prohibited countries.
The big news here is that it’s absolutely free to join the network and create your own skin and Switch Poker support handles all player issues and pays you between 30 and 70% of revenue your players generate. For free, you’ll get a fully functional real money mobile poker room, 30% rev share, detailed reporting and player support, you will however need to get those players on board yourself and handle all marketing and website details. There are two other packages available that include the graphics and DNS setup etc, and the silver package will cost €850 with the gold package which costs €4,995 initially with a €2,495 annual fee offering a 70% revenue share, sending of player newsletters, 70% of casino revenue and an affiliate program too. There are a few issues in the terms and conditions that you should be aware of, such as the fact that skins that do not generate €500 in rake for two consecutives months shall be closed down and no player details are given to you. We can imagine a few people taking Switch Poker up on their offer, and should you feel you have it in you to get a mobile poker skin running, and of course a bit of a marketing budget then maybe it’s worth a shot. Homework will of course be required and succeeding in a pretty packed marketplace will not be easy.
Players in the US looking to play mobile poker can head over to Carbon where cash games and sit n go's are available on your mobile device.
