Wireless applications company, Summus, has announced it has added Phil Hellmuth’s Texas Hold ‘Em multiplayer poker to its wireless package and that Verizon Wireless customers can now purchase the game for a $2.99 monthly subscription with a Get It Now-enabled cell phone.

Subscribers can play Phil Hellmuth's Texas Hold 'Em in solo or multiplayer mode. In the multiplayer mode, subscribers all over the country can play directly against each other across wireless carrier networks. No real money exchanges hands, but winners get ranked on the Texas Hold 'Em ranking site (, which displays the top money winners by week and month.

'I am extremely excited to work with Summus to promote their wireless, multiplayer Texas Hold 'Em game,' said Phil Hellmuth, who in 1989 became the youngest ever World Poker Champion. 'The future of poker is right here. Being able to play poker on your cell phone against other players across various carrier networks has tremendous potential for success.'
