Not that there haven’t been gambling applications on Android before, but today, EA is bringing the full World Series of Poker experience to our phones. For the low price of free, you can jump into hands of Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha or other game types with your friends or people playing the application around the world. Win some hands and get some earnings and this app allows you to compete for virtual bracelets and those earnings can go towards buying in at higher-stakes tables.
There’s just one catch: you have to login to the application with your Facebook account. At the time there’s no way to play without giving them your information so that alone might be a deal breaker for some. The developers are promising a guest mode that will work without Facebook at some point but you will have to wait for that. If you just have to have your gamblin fix, hit the link below.
For reasons unknown, EA Games is listing their popular titles Mass Effect: Infiltrator and NBA Jam for just a single buck. Seeing as how Mass Effect is usually listed for $6.99 and Jam goes for $4.99, you may want to snatch these up before they return to their usual prices. Both titles are rated quite well in the Play Store, so you know you will at least be getting your dollar’s worth.

Cheers Chris, Brian, and Nick!

EA has placed Mass Effect Infiltrator on the Google Play Store and it’s another one of those must-have mobile shooter games. If you’re big into Sci-Fi and over-the-shoulder or “third person” games, then this is going to make your fingers quite excited. And before anyone asks, yes the Galaxy Nexus is supported by the game. You play as rogue agent Randall Ezno who must take on an entire army of Cerebrus baddies. Oh, what fun you will have. The game does cost a hefty $7, but this game may just be worth it. If you try it out, let us know how you like it. (more…)
All you Sim fanatics can head into the Android Market today and pick up EA’s latest creation for free. Sims FreePlay brings the classic alternate-life game straight to your handset. Design your dream house, meet the Sim-girl/boy of your dreams, have a great career and all the other things Sims like to do. Once you download the app, there is a whopping 600+MB download, but hey, this is Sims we’re talking about. (more…)
There have been so many Scrabble clones on the Market lately, the most popular being Words with Friends and WordSmith. Both are great, and deploy all the usual rules and features one would come to expect from a Scrabble-esque game. Being able to smack talk the competition with in-game chatting, cross platform competitiveness, and being able to play multiple games at the same time is just a few of the features the official Scrabble game has.

It’s starting to be a great month for games on Android, especially now that all of those missing EA games have started to return. Back in February, EA decided to pull their lineup of games from the Android Market for no apparent reason, which led many upon many users to take to the interwebz to give them a piece of their mind. One user states (which we found hilarious):
I PAID FOR A PRODUCT!! I EXPECT UNFETTERED ACCESS TO THE PRODUCT 24/7, 365 WITHOUT UNDUE INTERRUPTION AND WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR IT AGAIN!
We do agree wholeheartedly though. Well now everyone can start beginning the lookout for those missing titles. A simple search of EA Games in the Market delivered me to what looks like all of their games: Sims 3, NFS, Bejeweled2, Worms, and some other classic games. So go check the Market and see if your games are back.
We’re hearing that games are showing up, but some are not allowing users to install. We’ll have to keep an eye on it…
