The way that Ongame work is that they design and develop the games using the best technology, which is then licensed out, to the actual Poker sites. Ongame can provide a full back office service to the sites if needed, including customer support, promotions and bonus offers, training, and a dedicated risk management department which analyses player behaviour to detect any suspicious activities. This lets the Poker site concentrate on gaining players, knowing that once signed up the players will enjoy the experience and keep coming back.

Being an innovative company, Ongame have been at the forefront of mobile Poker, and many of their clients now provide a mobile version of their desktop Poker games. They use a lot of bespoke software packages to attract, retain, and monitor players including Essence, which helps the more casual, or recreational player have a better experience at the site, and Hyperspace, which helps the Poker site develop a better relationship with the players using Facebook, mini games, and live betting for big sports events. The Mini games software lets the Poker sites put up to 30 side games onto their platform, with a range of slots, Roulette, Blackjack, and Jacks or Better. Adding side games is a good way to keep players engaged, as they do not have to play Poker all the time and a change is often as good as a rest. Mini games have been proven to keep players at a site for around 7% longer, so this has proved to be a popular addition to many Poker sites using Ongame software.

The Ongame mobile software is promoted as the first real money Poker app for smartphones and it can be downloaded onto both Android devices and iPhones where players can enjoy No Limit, Pot Limit, and Fixed Limit real money Holdem games. Mobile Poker is another way that Ongame are able to improve player loyalty to a Poker site with unique software giving the games a great look. Initially the OnGame mobile poker app was only available for players in the UK and Austria. However, the OnGame mobile poker apps can now be used in certain Scandinavian countries, Greece, Cyprus, Poland, Portugal and some countries around the Balkans region, depending on which Poker provider you download the apps from. As Poker becomes regulated in more and more countries, players from around the world should soon be able to enjoy the Ongame mobile offerings.

Using Bwin as an example, the app can be downloaded onto an Android device just by scanning the QR code on the mobile Poker page, or onto an iPhone by clicking the link to the App Store and following the instructions there. Once downloaded, you just choose your table by selecting your stake, game type, and number of players. Once you have made your choice, you will be taken to a suitable table.

The Ongame Poker app also automatically shows your best hand to help you assess your chances of winning. At present, you will need to open an account at the main desktop Poker site first, and deposit funds here before playing, as there are no banking facilities available through the mobile apps, although this is actually a sensible security precaution.

The Ongame mobile Poker apps are fairly limited in their scope offering just real money Holdem games, where some of the more advanced apps are also providing Omaha and fun play games. On the positive side, the games look great, with unique software, getting to a table is a quick process, and playing the games is easy with the user-friendly control buttons provided.
