"Zynga Poker VS Poker Heat

Poker Heat and Zynga Poker are two free online poker games. Playtika makes Poker Heat and Zynga makes Zynga Poker.

I play both games often, and they are huge favorites of mine. In this post, I have the tough task of deciding what game I like more.

How the Games Look

I like how flashy and different the tables at Poker Heat are. But I also like the traditional look of Zynga Poker tables.

Zynga Poker does change the look of the tables during events, and it looks neat.

Overall I like Poker Heat more as the standard game tables look better. Poker Heat looks better.

How the Games Sound

Poker Heat all the way! The sounds in Zynga Poker get boring and repetitive after hearing them for so long. The sounds in Poker Heat are very exciting, and I love to hear them.

Poker Heat has way better sounds.

Poker Options

Poker Heat focuses on Texas hold ‘em and only has ring game tables. There are no tournaments.

Zynga Poker has Texas hold ‘em ring game tables and some sit and go options.

While Zynga Poker may have more options, I am not a huge fan of sit and goes, to begin with actually.

The fact they are in the game doesn't change my mind much about the game options.

I like the more detailed gameplay found in Poker Heat and, I like the options found in Poker Heat more.

Game Events Compared

Poker Heat has many events and even some event game modes. Zynga Poker has few events, and they are not very exciting.

To be fair recent Zynga Poker events have been more fun. But even factoring that in Poker Heat events are still much more fun.

Poker Heat is the clear winner here. The events in Poker Heat are much more fun and interesting.

Things to Collect Compared

Zynga Poker has a collection of watches. You earn chips in a collection, and then you get the watch.

You can show the watches to other players, and collecting watches also gives you extra chips.

Poker Heat has rings you can collect. You earn the rings by getting crowns. You get these crowns by playing the game often.

Other players see your current ring. You also get extra chips for collecting the rings.

In the past, Poker Heat was the clear winner. But now the competition has increased.

I still think Poker Heat is the winner here.

The Zynga Poker watches are nice, and this addresses a huge complaint of mine. But the Poker Heat rings have more style to me. They feel more fun to collect.

I also think Playtika put more effort into making the rings feel and look exclusive compared to the Zynga Poker watches.

My Thoughts on Both Games

I love to play both Zynga Poker and Poker Heat.

But, overall, I would say Poker Heat is better. Poker Heat excites in ways Zynga Poker does not. I have more fun playing Poker Heat than Zynga Poker.

Poker Heat outshines Zynga Poker, and in comparison, Zynga Poker seems blander.
