WPT Enterprises and MFORMA Group have unveiled an innovative poker project that will enable mobile users to install Texas Hold Em to their phones.

MFORMA a company specializing in mobile entertainment, has teamed up with the most recognizable poker brand World Poker Tour in order to cash in on the continuing poker boom, satisfying a demand for casino-style mobile games.

The new game features real-time, six-player capability.

"We set out to make the best mobile poker game and we are very pleased to be working with World Poker Tour to bring World Poker Tour Texas Hold 'Em to market," said Scott Jensen, for MFORMA.

"The World Poker Tour has vastly increased the audience for poker and this game, associated with the leading poker brand, delivers the most realistic poker environment in mobile, incorporating the style of the top-rated TV show. Each of our WPT-branded applications will allow interaction with the show or WPT events through promotions, on-air commentary, tournaments, and prizes."

World Poker Tour Texas Hold 'Em has developed a unique way of displaying the environment as the camera pans smoothly from side-to-side to follow the action.

Gamblers can play against five others at one time, simulating a real six-player-to-a-table game.

Users will have an opportunity to try the World Poker Tour Texas Hold 'Em game beginning early March from leading wireless operators in North America, followed by Europe and Asia.
