Terminal Poker

When you visit terminalpoker.com you’ll find it surprisingly simple, perhaps. You’re looking for the ‘mobile’ setup, and all that you see is links to Poker, Casino and so on. The fact is, Terminal Poker is going for the instant-play-minded player.

If that’s you, then within just two clicks you can start spinning a high-quality slot, made by Play’nGo, like Wild Blood or Enchanted Meadow. This is possible because the Terminal-Poker approach is to offer games mainly within the Web browser (currently with Flash).

NOTE: Apple users will have to wait until Terminal Poker offers HTML5 games for in-the-browser action.

For now, Apple folks should use a microscope and find the link to ‘TerminalPoker Mobile’ at the bottom of pages in light gray — or go to terminalpoker.com/_mobile right away. We are told that both iOS and Android games are available. (You must register in order to proceed with checking out those apps. TerminalPoker feels a bit exclusive, if you know what we mean.)

How to Play, Fast

Using your smart phone or tablet, you simply point its Web browser to the site, then find the game of your choice. (We’ll get into the registration and bonus scheme below.) Or if you like, just click the large image for each game and launch the test game. If you’re overcome by the curiosity to try your luck with real cash, well then click the small gold ‘Play For Real’ button at the bottom left, at any time.

Terminal Poker is mainly a serious online Poker destination. You can download its client, or program, to your computer for playing either Poker Classic or Speed Poker. Although we like its overall simplicity and seriousness, we do not get a sense that Terminal Poker is really courting mobile players — yet. More energizing Poker games here

The switch from Flash to HTML5 is imminent. Most game studios are already re-releasing their titles as HTML5-based games that do not require plugins or the downloading of anything. Play’nGo is expected to make this switch, just like other game makers — or else it will go the way of the sands.

The Games at Terminal Poker

It’s a full casino, despite its name. (There’s a minor point here to gripe about — the misleading use of ‘Poker’ in the name, which is not altogether comforting to Roulette lovers, for example, or other casino patrons.) All games are provided courtesy of Play’nGo, which is a Swedish company with a good style.

These games look a bit like illustrated novels or art-house comics. Most of their themes are not very inspired, and yet extremely well rendered. You’ll get the usual concept slots patterned after Camelot, or a Leprechaun, vampires, Vikings, Egyptians and so forth.

Yet we did spot a few unique ones, like Fortune Teller and Photo Safari. Its so-called ‘fruit machines’ are especially fresh-looking (Fruit Bonanza and Wild Melon). See more “Fruit-themed” casino games, check this out.

But let’s not neglect the rich array of casino favourites you can play at Terminal, as well as, yes, you guested it, plenty of online and mobile Poker. The sign up bonus is modest: basically we get 5 Gold Chips if we set up our ‘nickname’ or avatar (which will show up at tables when we play). There are also daily free-rolls on slots, which actually do add up to quite a bit of bonus cash.

That’s it. Terminal Poker (and casino!) is for no-nonsense players who like the look-and-feel of Swedish game company Play’nGo, because that’s the extent of games that you get here. This site feels a bit like a gated community, rather than a flashy Vegas-like property.
