Senator John McCain Enjoys Mobile Gambling

Last week the world was in a state of anxiety as the United States, Russia and Syria faced off to see whose package was bigger. While the United Sates senate took place and both sides of the government tried to win their case, there was only one real winner once the showdown was over….

Mobile Gambling!

That’s right, mobile poker become the forefront of discussion after Senator John McCain was caught playing poker on his iPhone and did not deny these charges as he was caught red handed by a news reporter who managed to snap this little picture.

While the backlash was quite short, it was on the news non-stop for a few days. And what better time to launch your mobile poker room application than when it’s all over the news.

That’s exactly what Carbon Poker did when they released their mobile poker room during this time. This marks the first application of poker for American players. It’s not available in seven states due to regulations, but it’s still a huge step in the right direction for the American player base.

Right now this app is only available on iPhones and Android powered phones.

The app was apparently in testing mode during its launch and has been in the works for some time over at Carbon Poker, they decided to launch it anyway.

While one can argue if releasing a glitch filled mobile application was the right decision as many Android users repeatedly report problems on a regular basis, you can’t argue about what this means for USA poker players.

To have a mobile betting application is something that has been longed for over the last decade. With this recent development, it can only be a matter of time before more and more sites start to offer the same. Although we can’t be sure on the quality coming out of sites like BetOnline, who quite possibly have the worst poker software known to man, it’s still great to even have the option.
