A.ok!
it’s good but may cost you a lot of money
by dominic thai tran on 2019/09/20 07:19
hi guys, here’s my real story. i’ve been playing this game for one month since i was in the flight back to us from hong kong. i’ve beated all 66 cities with 64 golden and 2 silver trophies (LA and Portland), 2nd place in world rank. you need to be first in LA to meet ‘god father’. i’ll finish soon ‘not enough chips right now’ with first 1.98$ to remove ads, and then using free chips and ticket from daily challenge, spin and heads up. they’re not smart as i thought - AI i assume, but i’m sure they don’t know your cards in hand. so you can totally win them if you have good skills (up to 80%). it would depend on your observation, statistic and probability, guessing and so forth. in my opinion, playing card is probable game, everyone has the same chance to have bad or good cards. don’t be too happy or angry, let play cool, compute and consider thoroughly, you’ll win them. important tip is push them out ASAP when you feel your cards strong enogh, don’t let them open 4th or 5th card. 20% remain relies on computer’s cheat or lucky, i don’t know. there were a lot of three of kinds, flush, and straight for their card, and always happened in 5th card. i almost beated it, but when they nearly lose, they did all-in and miracle thing happened. regardless how many players in a table, you actually fight with 3 smart characters, who’re pretty the same in all cities, about 10 guys like that. you can realize them. So, enjoy playing and don’t let them take out your real money good luck
Not fair
by gamer12311:4 on 2019/09/17 13:41
At the end you will realize... this game is design to make you buy chips with real money. It’s design in the way that each time I add chips to play black jack.. I will lose... we can never win because it’s well calculated...
When can we expect Poker World 2
by x7H on 2019/09/13 07:28
This game has been highly enjoyable for me. I work on ships and spend most of my time without WiFi. I hoping for a new version with more cities or you can just change the name to Poker Universe and just change the names of the 66 tournament sites. I’ll go for that. No other poker game looks or sounds as good as yours. I finished this game on 4 different devices I only paid the 2 dollars on each device to get rid of the advertising, but I would pay much more for 100 or 200 cities on Poker World 2 or Poker Universe 1.
Hardly any sound

Great game bad thinking
by flipflopdripdrop on 2019/09/10 17:48
The game itself is wonderfully crafted. The mechanics and fluidity of the game itself are great. The only issue I have with the game is that there comes a point where you cannot progress without spending money if you fail. In order to get to Atlantic City, you need to beat the #10 seed and obtain 2 golden tickets. Using these tickets you can buy into a game and if you win you can continue. If you lose like me you are stuck in a position of paying to progress
Tell me how
by slbarnett on 2019/09/08 12:43
I love games of skill and learning to play Texas Holden was something I’ve wanted to do. However this game is quiet ridiculous on odds from what I’ve watched on tv. It is really unrealistic how many times I’ve lost when one of the fake players goes all in and I match it and loose when I have three of a kind or two high pair. How likely is it that I would have three aces and the other player will have a straight so often. I call bull #*%&!!! I have never seen other players go all in so often either as these guys. It’s absurd. Impossible to know when they have a good had or not.

Good graphics, sucky algorithms.
by Avgeek425 on 2019/09/02 17:32
I enjoy this game. The graphics are good. The offline feature is awesome. But the algorithms really need to be improved. The game is basically stacked against you. Doesn’t feel genuinely like a real poker game. It’s almost as if the computer knows your cards. Now I understand if the developers and programmers are over their heads with finding the right algorithms. That’s ok. That’s why other games make more money anyway. But...how about increasing incentives. Like instead of waiting 9 minutes to play the free game, you can increase the rewards and lower the time to keep players more engaged in the game. If you can’t fix the algorithms I think you can increase the rewards side to boost player’s advantage to win and keep them engaged in the game.

Don’t waste your money
by Stooopud on 2019/08/22 01:20
This games only purpose is to make the developers money and they will force you to pay to continue. The computer knows what cards you have and what will be dealt to the point of going all-in preflop and making you waste your chips. Tickets are not awarded with enough frequency and you are forced to pay to play. Even if you pay to gain more chips or tickets, the games chemistry will not and will force you back into a corner. I like the art and style of the game, but cannot get past the forced microtransactions. Deleting.
A beautiful money pit
by nabneumeier on 2019/08/21 10:32
I love almost everything about this game. It’s very well put together and easy to use, plus the side challenges are entertaining. What I don’t like is that the AI is always the luckiest SOB on the planet. The further along you get, the longer your unlucky streak gets, which is frustrating. I won a tournament off of bluffing and only had two hands that would’ve legit won in all the rounds combined. It is really geared towards having you spend money, which is fine if the creator would let you replay locations you’ve already won, but you can’t. I just uninstall and reinstall when I get to the point where I have to actually pay for chips with no chance of winning that money back. Overall it’s a good app.

Barely tolerable
by DJ J Dot on 2019/08/14 05:14
This isn’t the worst poker game out there (one extra star for offline play) but like most of the others, its insistent dependence on forcing you towards in-app purchases make the game mechanics vastly less realistic than live opponents. We are clearly light years away from a free or cheap offline app that even vaguely resembles an actual poker game, ironically because of capitalism, but this game was tolerable for longer than the others, and I’ve played most of them. It’s still a disheartening farce, and a grotesque insult to a beautiful game.
Rigged in every way
by terrrriiibbbble on 2019/08/13 10:13
The farther you go the worse it gets. Opponents are drawing dead and consistently hit the river. The game is rigged and meant to frustrate you to get you to buy currency. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy any hold em game on a mobile device unless you just want to play a few hands here and there.
Almost impossible to beat the computer!
by wrobbiehill on 2019/08/12 20:12
I was excited about an offline poker game but I am disappointed in this game. I spent hours paying the same computer avatar no matter what if I raise they folded and they always check no matter what it’s alway a check and then goes all in. Almost every time I would have the best hand and the computer would know that the river card would be take the pot of it it was the flop. I’ve never seen the “luck” that this game gives to the computer in my life playing online poker. Don’t waste your time on this game like I did.

by Bdougy15 on 2019/08/02 02:31
Basically, they corner you into in-app purchases. You cannot go back and play levels to earn money and they drain you of tickets as fast as they possibly can. Ridiculous. The only real option is to buy them so you have a chance to keep going. Wasted too much time on this. Play Zynga Poker. Much better and against real people.

Fun but limited
by zion11.com on 2019/07/27 23:05
Actually quite fun for a while, but the game won't let you reach Las Vegas (unless you spend A LOT of real money). The way the game is designed, you can play for free and win in almost all cities, but you will never earn enough to reach Vegas, even if you win in all the other tournaments. That's the catch.
Just a money maker for the author
by AllRoundGuy on 2019/07/27 21:44
If you expect to play a poker simulator, this is NOT the game for you. If you just want to kill some time playing around with a poker game that you don’t expect too much from, this is okay. I haven’t spent a dime on this game and I’m glad. This game has up to 39, so far, cartoon characters that you play against. Remarkably they play aggressively and are extremely lucky - like going all in with a pair of threes before the flop against a pair of aces and surprisingly; snicker, snicker; hitting a third three. The probability of winning with pocket aces is 31.6% or about once three hands where you have pocket aces. I’ve had pocket aces numerous times and have yet to win a showdown with them and have only won twice going all in with them. The main point to this game is to make you watch commercials or pay for extra items, in other words, to make lots of money for the author.
Hmm
by Pilipaa on 2019/07/27 19:53
So I have a love hate feeling towards this game as poker for me in general is fun, however this game executes it kinda predictable. Every first couple rounds the some AI will raise or go all in like it could be their first hand and they have nothing, just absurd gameplay. Flopping top hands or catching top hands on turn. This game can be frustrating like poker in a way that when you lose you lose, it just aint your day.

by wildfire178 on 2019/07/21 14:42
This game is so rigged. They must have their on “players” at the tables programmed to have a better hand than you do. I’ve had straights numerous times only to be beaten 9 out of 10 time with a flush, same goes with two pair beaten by straights, flushes beaten by full house, not like in a real game this happens nearly every time. I actually bought gems to change into money and then it even got worse. Guess they figured I was fool enough to do it once that pthey would make me lose and do it again, no way don’t like to play with cheaters.

Not a fair representation of actual poker play
by Simple Review on 2019/07/15 04:52
Can you play poker offline - yes, can you beat the AI - yes, is this game worth your time - no. Just won the Eastern US tournament (first tourney of the game). The tournament is a $10K buy-in with 24 people in a winner takes all payout. So, the payout should be.... $240K, right? Wrong, a measly $20K. And it gets worse, the game makes you buy items - to boost your reputation of course. So, all that money that you risk amounts to about $4K in “winnings”. What player would ever risk that kind of odds? The game is not meant for anything other than to give the developer real money to continue playing. This game lost all credibility in my book.
painfully slow
by kzme on 2019/07/13 04:03
too much waiting around for animation to finish. and u will need to pay real money for chips or tickets when you run out as there is no quick way to replenish. this is a free game only for the first few levels.

Coincidentally, you’ll have three of a kind and then all of a sudden your opponent will have a flush or straight. All the doing is getting you to buy more chips and the constant ads are very annoying

Well Designed BUT ....
by petesamzeke on 2019/06/26 13:21
This game is well designed, and could be five stars - but it is clearly geared toward skimming money off the users. If you don’t want to constantly spend your real money for more chips etc, you will have to patiently use the ‘Spin’ and ‘Free Games’ features to build up cash - then expect to be beaten by your cartoon opponents making successful bad bets against your rational ones. You can also expect to frequently receive a ‘five-two’ (or similar) hand three times in a row and/or frequently be beaten by a flush or full-house that is one card better than yours. It’s annoying that the game doesnt produce an honest card distribution and result. If you can overlook that, then you might have some fun with this game. Is it really too much to ask to have a well-designed, honest play, Texas Hold Em App?
Cheats & Expensive
by the tactition on 2019/06/25 23:59
This game will NOT allow you to continue to play unless you spend “Chips” which must be won or purchased to buy stupid things like fake sunglasses, houses, and motorbikes. Even if you win every tournament, you will not have enough chips to continue playing unless you purchase them for outrageous prices. The more you play, the more expensive this game becomes. Further, you’ll find their algorithms provide you with about 70% straight and flush draws during an average tournament table while also providing your competition with an 85% likelihood of pocket pairs or two pairs per tournament. Further STILL, the algorithm isn’t sophisticated enough to enable computer generated players the opportunities for true poker finesse. Thus, they consistently lay traps for you until the river is played or they immediately go all in before the flop. This occurs with about an 89% rate of repetition per tournament. Garbage app.
Higher you go the worse it gets
by irishbes on 2019/06/13 03:46
Started off great. Was getting good hands. Characters would fold when they didn’t have a hand. Then I got to the last game in North America. Had to win that one to move on. Then the hands went to hell. Rarely even got any paint let alone pairs. Played 5 rounds. Other characters would stay on crap hands and then low and behold. Always seemed to win on the river. Then guess what $1.99 for more chips. I did it once. That was enough to see it wasn’t about a fair game. But how many $1.99 they can scam. No idea why there are so many good ratings. It’s a scam. No way is it not rigged to make you buy more chips
Not worth it
by Freak2111 on 2019/06/09 23:52
Don’t waste your time with this game. It is set 100% against you. No way in the world will you see 3 quads and a royal flush in the same game. CHEAT!!!!!!! Spend your time doing anything else.

by GomezAdams on 2019/06/05 16:23
This game is rigged. If you buy chips, you get better hands. When you run out of chips, the cards do not go your way anymore. They say that it is realistic but there is no way that you or your opponent will get draws like this, on a consistent basis in real life. I’m done.

Yes, it’s rigged. But what do you expect?
by Ringorizzak on 2019/05/09 18:10
Like the other reviewers have said, this game has an algorithm that lets you win with crazy impossible long shots, but then you lose with them too. I’ve been playing B/M poker and online poker 20 years, and the number of 1 outers and runner-runners when you have the computer dead to rights is just silly. I understand apps are meant to make money, but I’d rather just pay $9.99 up front and have realistic odds. Instead I refuse pay a dime and just move on to other games until it will let me win again. (Also some of the tournaments are structured where if you fold the first 8 hands you’re blinded out which is just bonkers. But anyway...) So if you’re looking to pass time it’s a good game. But don’t think that you’re learning anything about realistic hand outcomes- for entertainment purposes only.

Paid $15 and my purchased items never appeared
by JuliannaB1983 on 2019/04/28 03:17
I submitted the issue to their Helpdesk. They asked for screenshots proving my purchase. I asked for clarification but didn’t hear back, possibly because it was a Friday. I figured it out on my own and provided the screenshots. No reply so far, but it’s the weekend now, so I’m hoping I’ll hear back soon. I’m blocked by a paywall and the items I purchased to get past the paywall never appeared. I understand the need for paywalls for free-to-play games, but I think it’s important that the developers prioritize fixing bugs such as this: If you’re going to block players from proceeding in a game until they pay, please make sure when I do pay, that my purchase is reflected in the app. Seems reasonable, right? I’m guessing it had something to do with a bad network connection, but who knows. Hopefully we can get the issue resolved soon.
Good, but unnecessarily fast-paced
by Thomas Tvileren on 2019/04/26 11:12
Decent game, but a pity that the hands pass by without giving beginners a chance to quite understand what happened. That’s necessary in an online game, but not in a simulator like this. There should be a “continue” button or something at the end of a hand.

1 round in to each tournament, you are short stacked unless you double up. 3rd place in a 24 person tournament doesn’t even refund your buy in. Designed to make micro transactions the only way to consistently proceed. Better apps that are more fair out there.

Stick with Governor of Poker
by sad engineering phd on 2019/03/24 09:57
Stay with their other title! The play is about the same, I’d say Governor is if anything a bit more lively, faster paced and the interface there is better laid-out. My beef with this game is that it’s trying very hard to be a money as in real dollars sink. In Governor, there was always a way (involving playing poker, not watching ads or waiting days for a trickle of random chips to come in) to claw back up from zero chips after a run of bad luck. In this title, nope - you can’t even go back to older tournaments with lower buy ins because they are shut off forever once you win them. Pay real money to get fake money in order to keep going? Nope.

I loved it at first but, that was until I started to lose games I could completely see I should have won! I noticed games where they would go all in, I would win the hand(not a tie), but they would get their money back. I would lose after going all in every time and I would lose all of my money every time! Do not play this game!

This app is garbage and glitchy. The in app purchases don’t always work. It’s always asking me to verify my account then puts me into some odd nonsensical loop. I’ve invested a couple of weeks into it and the level of frustration is maddening...could be that I’m using an older iPhone but I wanted to keep playing...the inability to buy tickets using my Apple ID account is the straw the broke me...I do not recommend.

Algorithm makes the game too hard
by Jcombs3388 on 2019/02/24 02:11
Great game, but they made it near impossible to get gold trophies and move forward. I think the algorithm they used makes this game too hard.
This game is rigged.
by O-Dog98 on 2019/02/24 01:42
Unfair and unrealistic hands. Computers going all in and literally having nothing. You get to a point where you will have to spend your own money to continue. It’s fun for the first couple matches then it gets stupid.
Very good game

Fun Game

I’m a novice and I enjoy this game to learn and just have some fun.
Not terrible, but...
by DJ Sam.r.i on 2019/02/17 04:00
There seems to be a very heavy tilt of unfairness for the NPC. They could have a garbage hand and nothing on the flop, but you have a decent pair. You make a bet serious bet that NO REAL PLAYER would match with the cards their holding and they end up with a 3 of a kind from the next 2 cards. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. It's like the NPCs already KNOW what cards are coming up. Still a fun game if you can pick up on the way the game cheats (because it is consistent) and fold when that happens EVEN IF YOU HAVE A DECENT HAND you still have to fold or you WILL lose. Not sure what algorithm the devs are using, but it is a SERIOUS advantage for the NPCs

Ok for super casual novices

I’ve been playing for a week. Very fun the first couple days. 2 main problems. First, they try to get your money. If you lose a few tournaments (highly likely), you can’t go back and replay a tournament you’ve already won, and it takes virtual currency to enter most tournaments. It’s very tempting to drop actual money to get some VC to play tournaments. Second, the goal is to increase your world ranking. I’ve already noticed that a head to head challenge is very difficult...it’s as if the AI can see my cards and/or knows what cards are coming up. Several times, the AI went all in with bad cards and then caught a straight or flush or 3 of a kind on the river. Like the AI doubled up on me 3 hands in a row via a river miracle. So occasionally, the odds are stacked against the player, you lose VC, they try to get you to spend real money. Very fun game if you don’t care about progressing and just want to play a hand of poker on the toilet every once in a while.
All in on every hand.
by An older roblox player on 2019/02/12 22:47
I’ve tried playing this but it gets frustrating when the other “players “ have extremely high tendencies to go all in on every hand. It’s hard to tell if they are bluffing or not. If you are trying to play more conservatively then this game is going to beat you every time.
No help
by kimberly1963 on 2019/02/10 05:09
I loved playing this game until I could not go to next level and I had already complete all the spots but it kept saying finish previous spot well I looked several times there was no more spots so I installed it and I keep my progress I had played daily I was a good bit far in the game well when I reinstalled the app it kept wanting me to start at the beginning I emailed I know 10times or more they gave me every reason you can think of as to why I couldn’t get back to my level everything they ask me to do did now I can’t even get email back I suggest not getting this app there support system is not worth nothing
A disappointing money grab
by Stix in the house on 2019/02/03 04:04
This game is just a money grab. The buy-ins are too much and the profit too little. The AI seem to know every time they are going to get a good hand even when they have 2, 6 off suit they’ll go all in pre flop and end up with a straight. This is an unfair poker experience. There has to be a better poker game out there seriously DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS GAME!!!
Good practice!
by Topcop913 on 2019/02/01 20:54
Enjoy playing this game. Never crashes and there are plenty of opportunities to earn $ to continue with the play for free!
Best poker app

A beautiful money pit
by nabneumeier on 2019/08/21 10:32
I love almost everything about this game. It’s very well put together and easy to use, plus the side challenges are entertaining. What I don’t like is that the AI is always the luckiest SOB on the planet. The further along you get, the longer your unlucky streak gets, which is frustrating. I won a tournament off of bluffing and only had two hands that would’ve legit won in all the rounds combined. It is really geared towards having you spend money, which is fine if the creator would let you replay locations you’ve already won, but you can’t. I just uninstall and reinstall when I get to the point where I have to actually pay for chips with no chance of winning that money back. Overall it’s a good app.
There’s good news, and there’s...
by Vintagenarian on 2018/10/19 22:17
I enjoy this game. It’s well-designed and fun to play (there’s a big But coming…read on). I’m a seasoned player, do not mind losing fairly, and play this game on my iPad at least 1-2 hours every day as a side diversion while working at my desk. I’ve achieved the #3 ranked player in “the world,” and have (eventually) won tournaments on nearly all continents. But after playing for a couple months now, and spending some $100 in Real Money for additional chips (the pleasure has been worth it to me), I’ll soon be letting my $20 million bank play out and move on. The honest reason is simple: the “house” (in this case the developer) uses shills, in the form of cartoon players, who make completely unrealistic bets having only one obvious purpose: to separate you from your money. No reasonable player ever goes All-In with the absurd frequency of these toon bozos; no real player ever bluffs that much or that foolishly. After all, cartoon players have nothing to lose. The end result, with frequent annoyance, takes away from the true enjoyment of this game when you know you’re being cheated by the house. For beginners, this is a good and fun way to learn Texas Holdem, with beautiful graphics. But if you expect fair rules in the long term, find another version of the game. (To the developer: this isn’t a decent way to make money, folks. Offer honest players an honest game, and you’ll have loyal users like me stay all-in for the long haul.)
Simulation needs work
by Tom can't find a unique nick on 2018/10/19 13:13
I appreciate that this poker app has tasteful, elegant graphics and photo-realistic avatars. However, after four months of play, I have come to the conclusion that this product does not (yet) employ fair game play algorithms nor random shuffle. For example, your simulated opponents will frequently go "all in" before the flop for hands they could not win without the turn or river. Low card and other junk hands that most players would fold become full house or straight draws that justify open bets. It is as though the outcome of each round is known and your simulated opponents bet accordingly. That is frustrating. Also tournaments seem rigged in your favor such that, unless you really botch your hands, you'll likely end up at the top so it's easier to advance to the next tournament. I hoped for an authentic experience in order to improve my betting game. If you just want to practice Texas Hold 'Em in a gorgeous environment and don't care strongly about authenticity, I would recommend this app. However I plan to look for another poker app that better simulates real game play.
Pay to Play!
by CrPokeHer on 2018/12/12 20:03
4.3 out of 5? Uh huh. The tournaments aren’t worth playing once you advance. You actually lose money in every tournament you play in no matter what place you take. If you come in scone or third you may as well not even play. Buy in for 40k. Third place gets 7k in a 16 person tournament. Ok. It’s all just a way to get you to buy chips. If the payouts were more realistic there’d be no reason for you to have to pay to keep playing in the tournaments so they keep the prize money low so you end up running out. I refuse to pay for more chips so I end up waiting 4 hours at a time to spin or play free heads up games. I’ve been beaten so many times when the computer only has 1 out, or to 4 card straits or a 4 card flush. It happens way too often in this game to be coincidence. You put your money in with the best hand and more often than not you’re losing. The only way to win these tournaments is to play extremely tight and only bet when you have the nuts. But then the screwed up blind system catches up with you and you’re basically done. Again all a way for them to keep your chips low so you buy more. Waste of time, don’t waste your money by paying.

Completely Shameful
by Moxthafox on 2018/11/02 13:50
A smooth, entertaining offline poker game (albeit perhaps a bit strange algorithm design at some points) utterly ruined by blatant attempts of getting its players to pay real-world cash. The Ticket System in the game is a slap in the face to people who simply want a decent offline poker game. There comes a point in the game where it quite literally does not let you play any more poker until you reach for your real world wallet. Once you win a tournament in a certain area, you can’t go back and play it to get more chips or even just play it for fun. On top of that hurdle, they also have areas that you cannot play without having a Ticket, and you can’t take on any bosses without completing the whole area. In short, the game is designed to draw you in for cash, just like 99% of all of these horrible excuses for mobile games nowadays. It’s completely pathetic. Whatever happened to Angry Birds and Plants Vs. Zombies, where you didn’t have to vigilantly wait for ads to pop up every time you do ANY ACTION on the game? It’s a slap in the face.
Just a money maker for the author
by AllRoundGuy on 2019/07/27 21:44
If you expect to play a poker simulator, this is NOT the game for you. If you just want to kill some time playing around with a poker game that you don’t expect too much from, this is okay. I haven’t spent a dime on this game and I’m glad. This game has up to 39, so far, cartoon characters that you play against. Remarkably they play aggressively and are extremely lucky - like going all in with a pair of threes before the flop against a pair of aces and surprisingly; snicker, snicker; hitting a third three. The probability of winning with pocket aces is 31.6% or about once three hands where you have pocket aces. I’ve had pocket aces numerous times and have yet to win a showdown with them and have only won twice going all in with them. The main point to this game is to make you watch commercials or pay for extra items, in other words, to make lots of money for the author.
Not a free game. Here’s why
by Krosisa on 2018/09/04 17:02
This game is not only free but in a sense a subscription service game. Here’s why 1. The ticket system. In each region, there will be at least one city where you must pay a ticket to play, not the chips you’ve won. Tickets are cash only items. The way the game is designed, if you win a city (get gold) you can not play the city again. So eventually you are stuck in a situation where you can’t play any poker game unless you buy a ticket from the cash shop. The response from the company to that will be there is a free daily challenge system where if you win 10 games, you get a ticket for free. Fair enough. Here’s the catch: you need to wait 4 hours in between each game so even if you are playing on the dot, you can’t play a real poker game (daily challenge is 1:1, not a tournament style) for 40 hours. The game is designed to get you stuck where you have to pay cash to play any more. 2. The ads. The unskippable, long, video ads before every single game. I understand they need to play ads because the game is offered “free” notwithstanding my point above. But the sheer amount of as on this thing was unbelievable. I did pay the money to get rid of the ads - that is before I got stuck in the situation mentioned above with the ticket and ads don’t matter anymore since I can’t play a game without paying more money. Good game, but terrible cash cow design.
Yes, it’s rigged. But what do you expect?
by Ringorizzak on 2019/05/09 18:10
Like the other reviewers have said, this game has an algorithm that lets you win with crazy impossible long shots, but then you lose with them too. I’ve been playing B/M poker and online poker 20 years, and the number of 1 outers and runner-runners when you have the computer dead to rights is just silly. I understand apps are meant to make money, but I’d rather just pay $9.99 up front and have realistic odds. Instead I refuse pay a dime and just move on to other games until it will let me win again. (Also some of the tournaments are structured where if you fold the first 8 hands you’re blinded out which is just bonkers. But anyway...) So if you’re looking to pass time it’s a good game. But don’t think that you’re learning anything about realistic hand outcomes- for entertainment purposes only.
Chips
by camdizzle on 2018/11/20 18:07
Loved it at first. Was cruising along, all of the sudden I lose 3 games in a row on unbelievably bad beats on the river and I have 900 chips left and the cheapest tournament I can play is 30,000. I refuse to spend any more real money, it’ll be a month before I can do enough daily challenges or watch 4 ads every 3 days before I can even play another tournament with hopes of getting at least second place to salvage some money. In what world do you lose money if you get 3rd? I mean seriously. The payouts are not nearly high enough compared to the buy in. A very obvious cash grab and it must be working well because they will not change it. I have now deleted the game in search of a more realistic and fair playing experience. P.S offer some type of exhibition or allow old tournaments to be played. Don’t want to shell out 30k in chips every time I feel like playing a game. Hopefully they fix it to stop the exodus of users. Until then I’m moving on.
Well Designed BUT ....
by petesamzeke on 2019/06/26 13:21
This game is well designed, and could be five stars - but it is clearly geared toward skimming money off the users. If you don’t want to constantly spend your real money for more chips etc, you will have to patiently use the ‘Spin’ and ‘Free Games’ features to build up cash - then expect to be beaten by your cartoon opponents making successful bad bets against your rational ones. You can also expect to frequently receive a ‘five-two’ (or similar) hand three times in a row and/or frequently be beaten by a flush or full-house that is one card better than yours. It’s annoying that the game doesnt produce an honest card distribution and result. If you can overlook that, then you might have some fun with this game. Is it really too much to ask to have a well-designed, honest play, Texas Hold Em App?
Incorrect Review
by Its free and fun! on 2018/10/17 16:57
One reviewer wrote that this was a “cash cow” game and the only way to get tickets is to buy them. Untrue. I’ve never spent a dime on this game and have earned well over a million dollars, lost it and rebuilt it again. The game give the option for a free spin every 3 hours and you can play one on one to earn cash and tickets! Additionally if you turn in the airplane mode in your device you can play ad free. I think this is a great game.
Cheats & Expensive
by the tactition on 2019/06/25 23:59
This game will NOT allow you to continue to play unless you spend “Chips” which must be won or purchased to buy stupid things like fake sunglasses, houses, and motorbikes. Even if you win every tournament, you will not have enough chips to continue playing unless you purchase them for outrageous prices. The more you play, the more expensive this game becomes. Further, you’ll find their algorithms provide you with about 70% straight and flush draws during an average tournament table while also providing your competition with an 85% likelihood of pocket pairs or two pairs per tournament. Further STILL, the algorithm isn’t sophisticated enough to enable computer generated players the opportunities for true poker finesse. Thus, they consistently lay traps for you until the river is played or they immediately go all in before the flop. This occurs with about an 89% rate of repetition per tournament. Garbage app.
A good offline poker game
by Tmwill on 2018/08/22 22:10
I wanted to find a poker game that I could just play and not have to deal with crazy all-in every single hand, that online free poker usually is. This is a good game, with fairly decent computer play. I wouldn’t call it great because they way they structure the tournaments needs some work. What I mean is, the tournament as you travel through the different areas never really changes. The amount of chips you start with continues to increase as you move up and win tournaments, but the small/big blinds increase at the same level. So, each tournament throughout the entire game is the exact same experience. The number of starting chips increase, but the amount of play doesn’t. So, each tournament experience is basically the same.
Terrible
by Pillseller on 2018/10/20 01:06
First week I thought it was awesome, beatable players, logical advancement, and the offline stuff was great; play only when you want to play. Then Atlantic City hit, 23 players to beat and I’ve had bad beats that are beyond absurd. It’s been 6 weeks and still can’t beat it. It’s literally level one. I play poker weekly, I’m don’t have a bracelet or anything but I can hold my own. The bad beats are so over the top it’s not even fun. Just now on the first hand with 24 players in, 2 before me go all in. I call with a AK suited. Cards flip and the other players have 7-4 off-suit and 6-10 suited. No way anyone would go all in with that crap from the first hand of a tourney. Flop comes 5-6-8. Computer flops a straight and I’m first out. This has happened every other day for 6 weeks. If you want an unrealistic game to test your bad beat patience then this is for you, otherwise skip it. It’s ridiculous.
Paid $15 and my purchased items never appeared
by JuliannaB1983 on 2019/04/28 03:17
I submitted the issue to their Helpdesk. They asked for screenshots proving my purchase. I asked for clarification but didn’t hear back, possibly because it was a Friday. I figured it out on my own and provided the screenshots. No reply so far, but it’s the weekend now, so I’m hoping I’ll hear back soon. I’m blocked by a paywall and the items I purchased to get past the paywall never appeared. I understand the need for paywalls for free-to-play games, but I think it’s important that the developers prioritize fixing bugs such as this: If you’re going to block players from proceeding in a game until they pay, please make sure when I do pay, that my purchase is reflected in the app. Seems reasonable, right? I’m guessing it had something to do with a bad network connection, but who knows. Hopefully we can get the issue resolved soon.
I’m on the fence, leaning towards neg side
by ---123--- simple on 2018/07/02 21:11
I started off really enjoying this game, I redid some games, turned everything into gold trophy’s 5-6 total, an I can’t play at all anymore because I don’t have tickets,an I’m low on cash, I’m stuck waiting on daily challenges, now my thinking is this ,I’m here at your game, why are you making me go look for other games to entertain myself ,while I wait on your time restrictions, find me something to do, also I”ll talk quickly about the cost of entry vs rewards $$ won. It should not penalize you for winning an trying to move along you need bigger payouts, Something is off on the entry costs an cash lost or won to play.( I can’t stress this enough, there should be something to keep me on your game because I’m losing interest quickly waiting on tickets.)
Good graphics, sucky algorithms.
by Avgeek425 on 2019/09/02 17:32
I enjoy this game. The graphics are good. The offline feature is awesome. But the algorithms really need to be improved. The game is basically stacked against you. Doesn’t feel genuinely like a real poker game. It’s almost as if the computer knows your cards. Now I understand if the developers and programmers are over their heads with finding the right algorithms. That’s ok. That’s why other games make more money anyway. But...how about increasing incentives. Like instead of waiting 9 minutes to play the free game, you can increase the rewards and lower the time to keep players more engaged in the game. If you can’t fix the algorithms I think you can increase the rewards side to boost player’s advantage to win and keep them engaged in the game.
One star cash grab
by TheBet777 on 2018/03/13 20:41
This game went from 5 stars to 1 star in my mind. Great interface and gameplay, and was fun to start. But... it starts off with small tournaments with 5-8 players and low buy-ins. I was enjoying the game and paid money to remove ads. Soon after that, the tournaments have higher buyins and more players, but the payoffs remain small. A tournament with 16 players and $5k buyin, but you only get $9k for winning and $3k for coming in 3rd? How does that make sense? The next one is 24 players and $10k buyin, but you only get $19k for winning and nothing for 2nd or 3rd. If you play twice, win one and come in 2nd one, you’re actually down chips! With 24 players! After paying money for chips (and remove ads), I’m out of chips after one day and feel like I was robbed. Not a good feeling.
Good turned bad
by UnkownClicker on 2018/07/16 14:10
The game started off really well (5 stars), but the tournament payoffs after the 5th tournament aren’t really worth it. You spend $5k, to win a total of $8,800, so you only win $3,300. If you get third in that same tournament, you “win” (if that’s what you want to call it) a negative $2600. How does placing in a tournament lose you money...? That doesn’t make any sense. On top of that, you can do different things to gain some money back (that you’re getting screwed over on in tournaments). However, you can win a measly $1k (which is barely a drop in the bucket). Then wait 4 HOURS for another shot at $1k. Gameplay and everything else is great, but you can’t play anything if you don’t have the virtual money to play. Of course, you can always pay to play, but that’s ridiculous.
When can we expect Poker World 2
by x7H on 2019/09/13 07:28
This game has been highly enjoyable for me. I work on ships and spend most of my time without WiFi. I hoping for a new version with more cities or you can just change the name to Poker Universe and just change the names of the 66 tournament sites. I’ll go for that. No other poker game looks or sounds as good as yours. I finished this game on 4 different devices I only paid the 2 dollars on each device to get rid of the advertising, but I would pay much more for 100 or 200 cities on Poker World 2 or Poker Universe 1.
Don’t download unless you plan on spending real money
by Casual Poker on 2018/09/24 03:46
This game seemed fun enough until I spent the weekend watching the computer act like no other poker player on the planet. This game is rigged for you to have to spend real money. Every time it looks like you are about to advance you watch the computer move all in with 2 + 7 pre flop and end up with a full house. I’ve seen the computer catch 4 of kind multiple times in consecutive sessions. Then once you have exhausted your bank of money the only alternative is to purchase in game currency with real money. Don’t fall for this trap. If they were running a legit game I’d say it could be worth it. But after deleting and re-downloading the game at least a dozen times, I’ve realized that you literally can’t win.
Not terrible, but...
by DJ Sam.r.i on 2019/02/17 04:00
There seems to be a very heavy tilt of unfairness for the NPC. They could have a garbage hand and nothing on the flop, but you have a decent pair. You make a bet serious bet that NO REAL PLAYER would match with the cards their holding and they end up with a 3 of a kind from the next 2 cards. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. It's like the NPCs already KNOW what cards are coming up. Still a fun game if you can pick up on the way the game cheats (because it is consistent) and fold when that happens EVEN IF YOU HAVE A DECENT HAND you still have to fold or you WILL lose. Not sure what algorithm the devs are using, but it is a SERIOUS advantage for the NPCs
Great game... for about a week
by nsanteramo on 2018/07/10 03:39
Game is very obviously made to hook consumer so they spend money. At first, buy ins and payouts are proportional to something you’d expect. After you win six or seven small tournaments, the buy in’s start getting ridiculous in comparison to the payouts. For example, a 16-person tournament with a 10k chip buy in will pay out like 18k if you win, 11k for second, and 7k for third. You could be the best tournament player in the world and you’ll lose money quickly in the long run as you’ll get bad cards and lose... it’s poker. If you don’t place top two in ever tournament you play on average, you’ll be forced to buy chips which is next to impossible with 16-24 other players. Great game, cool set up, but unnecessarily challenging
Fun until you’re stuck
by eslackey on 2019/01/29 02:58
They make it super hard to earn tickets. Eventually you get stuck and can’t even play poker unless you pay them real $. It’s easy to make “game” money by winning, but you rarely can win tickets. It can take a week of daily challenges before you get a ticket. The daily “spin” NEVER lands on the tickets. There should be a better way to earn them other than paying actual money. It makes the game not fun for people that can’t afford to buy a bunch of digital tickets. I get that developers have to make money, but let me watch some ads for the tickets or something, or earn them in Blackjack, or make the spins actually land on them occasionally.
Stuck...
by Schmeldo on 2018/04/30 15:43
I've been playing this game for a couple months. Started it to practice for a charity tournament I was in. I've enjoyed it and haven't had to pay for chips yet, but I'm stuck on Brazil. 26K buy-in, have to beat 16 players to advance. I've come in 2nd or 3rd several times, but can't get past it. It's frustrating as heck. I actually "spent" almost 250K chips trying to beat it. If that's the way they get you to buy chips, it ain't happening.
Stick with Governor of Poker
by sad engineering phd on 2019/03/24 09:57
Stay with their other title! The play is about the same, I’d say Governor is if anything a bit more lively, faster paced and the interface there is better laid-out. My beef with this game is that it’s trying very hard to be a money as in real dollars sink. In Governor, there was always a way (involving playing poker, not watching ads or waiting days for a trickle of random chips to come in) to claw back up from zero chips after a run of bad luck. In this title, nope - you can’t even go back to older tournaments with lower buy ins because they are shut off forever once you win them. Pay real money to get fake money in order to keep going? Nope.

I loved playing this game until I could not go to next level and I had already complete all the spots but it kept saying finish previous spot well I looked several times there was no more spots so I installed it and I keep my progress I had played daily I was a good bit far in the game well when I reinstalled the app it kept wanting me to start at the beginning I emailed I know 10times or more they gave me every reason you can think of as to why I couldn’t get back to my level everything they ask me to do did now I can’t even get email back I suggest not getting this app there support system is not worth nothing
Tell me how
by slbarnett on 2019/09/08 12:43
I love games of skill and learning to play Texas Holden was something I’ve wanted to do. However this game is quiet ridiculous on odds from what I’ve watched on tv. It is really unrealistic how many times I’ve lost when one of the fake players goes all in and I match it and loose when I have three of a kind or two high pair. How likely is it that I would have three aces and the other player will have a straight so often. I call bull #*%&!!! I have never seen other players go all in so often either as these guys. It’s absurd. Impossible to know when they have a good had or not.
Almost impossible to beat the computer!
by wrobbiehill on 2019/08/12 20:12
I was excited about an offline poker game but I am disappointed in this game. I spent hours paying the same computer avatar no matter what if I raise they folded and they always check no matter what it’s alway a check and then goes all in. Almost every time I would have the best hand and the computer would know that the river card would be take the pot of it it was the flop. I’ve never seen the “luck” that this game gives to the computer in my life playing online poker. Don’t waste your time on this game like I did.
Higher you go the worse it gets
by irishbes on 2019/06/13 03:46
Started off great. Was getting good hands. Characters would fold when they didn’t have a hand. Then I got to the last game in North America. Had to win that one to move on. Then the hands went to hell. Rarely even got any paint let alone pairs. Played 5 rounds. Other characters would stay on crap hands and then low and behold. Always seemed to win on the river. Then guess what $1.99 for more chips. I did it once. That was enough to see it wasn’t about a fair game. But how many $1.99 they can scam. No idea why there are so many good ratings. It’s a scam. No way is it not rigged to make you buy more chips
100% cash grab
by Krabby on 2018/05/14 03:04
This is the first review I’ve ever written on Apple store. This game is ok until you have to win a 24 person tourney advance in the game. You literally can’t go any further in the game until you WIN this tourney. Winning a 24 person tourney is hard enough, but they rig it so you have no possible way of winning. The buy in is $10k so you will need to spend real money to get more chips. You go all in and everybody calls. And you won’t win. I somehow managed to actually finish 2nd twice. Both times i had much better hand to win tourney and both times got rivered. Run far away from this game.
Easy and Nice Graphics
by SheldonCPR93 on 2018/03/13 01:43
This game is so well made. It is nice go around the world playing matches to improve your game. What I love about it is , the game gives you many chances to enjoy for free and to get chips to keep playing. Even if you are a beginner the game have a small tutorial and hands that you will feel comfortable playing . Nice game , but a lots of adds be patient and have a good game
Great game bad thinking
by flipflopdripdrop on 2019/09/10 17:48
The game itself is wonderfully crafted. The mechanics and fluidity of the game itself are great. The only issue I have with the game is that there comes a point where you cannot progress without spending money if you fail. In order to get to Atlantic City, you need to beat the #10 seed and obtain 2 golden tickets. Using these tickets you can buy into a game and if you win you can continue. If you lose like me you are stuck in a position of paying to progress
Best offline poker game....
by XerophyllumTenax on 2018/08/03 22:37
Takes a while to read the AI characters, but once you get to playing against them the better you get at when and what to bet. I also like the around the world concept of the game. Build another offline hold em game using different avatars and no ticket required entry fee, but the same game engine.
HUGE SCAM
by Christian431 on 2018/10/18 04:21
(Game started out great) I’ve Been stuck on the South America São Paulo tournament sense August. The game is set up to where the computer gives you bad hands continuously. The bets just get higher and higher. I’ve put over $40 into this game and still can’t beat it. I’m a very experienced poker played and this game is a complete scam. You can wait 40 hours to gain money to play tournaments and maybe win a ticket but the further you get its all about paying to play. As you advance there’s no 2nd and 3rd payouts or purses you either get first or you’re out of luck and get nothing... I give this game 0 stars ...
Barely tolerable
by DJ J Dot on 2019/08/14 05:14
This isn’t the worst poker game out there (one extra star for offline play) but like most of the others, its insistent dependence on forcing you towards in-app purchases make the game mechanics vastly less realistic than live opponents. We are clearly light years away from a free or cheap offline app that even vaguely resembles an actual poker game, ironically because of capitalism, but this game was tolerable for longer than the others, and I’ve played most of them. It’s still a disheartening farce, and a grotesque insult to a beautiful game.
Ticket money grab
by Crucifiction machine on 2018/08/24 00:04
The ticket situation to play games is asinine. You either have to pay real money (which I did a couple times) to get tickets to play, or play the daily challenges for one ticket about every 1.5 days. They have a thing you can roll like a slot machine that gives chips, and it has a possibility to win tickets. But the ticket reward is always one slot away from being won. Which leads me to believe that it’s programmed that way to taunt you. It’s comical how often it happens really. I rarely pay money for an app and regret giving this developer money.
Annoyed
by naewill22 on 2018/06/25 18:08
A little annoying. They make it impossible to win and get the star level you need to play the next round. I have completed all the challenges on world 2 but can’t go on because I don’t have enough star power. I would have to pay to get star power or finish in first place every time. I don’t think that is is fair. If you finish in third second or first. You should get enough star power to continue.
Don’t waste your money
by Stooopud on 2019/08/22 01:20
This games only purpose is to make the developers money and they will force you to pay to continue. The computer knows what cards you have and what will be dealt to the point of going all-in preflop and making you waste your chips. Tickets are not awarded with enough frequency and you are forced to pay to play. Even if you pay to gain more chips or tickets, the games chemistry will not and will force you back into a corner. I like the art and style of the game, but cannot get past the forced microtransactions. Deleting.
Awesome
by TommyCliche on 2018/03/23 08:43
I love not having to play online- the only thing I would change is two amount of chips you have to enter each game with, I think it's just to get you to buy chips eventually, but other than that it's a very fun game.
Clearly rigged odds
by anon fish on 2019/01/06 18:56
Ok, ok. Everyone assumes that someone complaining about a poker game being rigged is a sore loser. Even though I might be a sore loser, this game is for sure rigged. How do I know? Pocket Rockets. Lots and lots of pocket rockets. Pocket aces only come up about 1 in 255 hands or so (if I remember the odds correctly). They are super rare. I’ve played about 300 hands so far, and every time I have KK or QQ or two pair, some npc has pocket aces. This has happened five or six times now. Further more, I haven’t been dealt pocket aces once. Smells very fishy to me. These kinds of odds don’t exist in live poker. Never have I ever seen pocket aces come up so frequently in my opponents hands. If you do play, expect a lot of bad beats likes this. Your opponents will have flushes frequently, straights frequently, pocket aces always. It feels like you’re playing a straight games with a bunch of people who have cards up their sleeves.
Rigged
by wildfire178 on 2019/07/21 14:42
This game is so rigged. They must have their on “players” at the tables programmed to have a better hand than you do. I’ve had straights numerous times only to be beaten 9 out of 10 time with a flush, same goes with two pair beaten by straights, flushes beaten by full house, not like in a real game this happens nearly every time. I actually bought gems to change into money and then it even got worse. Guess they figured I was fool enough to do it once that pthey would make me lose and do it again, no way don’t like to play with cheaters.
Good game but.....
by Capn' hooks on 2018/09/07 09:36
Once you win all the gold trophies you can only play the free daily game and blackjack boat, plus they still try to sell you chips AND tickets that you don’t need and can’t use. I was hoping I could keep my riches and start the game over from scratch. The game is kinda glitchy as well, it would freeze and cut out mid game and deny me from closing out their chip and ticket pop up window from time to time. Other than that it’s a good game and great way to practice poker.
in-app purchases
by Jkz1qe on 2018/07/08 21:33
my two-star review has become one star since the "update" that now demands money just to make the game functional with its ticket system and such. Some tournaments NOW you're JUST about to survive when three new players show up, and then you lose, and then the game locks up unless you buy more stuff. You know what'd be better? Charge something like $9.99 for the game and cut out the money pit in-app purchase garbage. I'm sick of it. I don't recommend this game, and am about to delete it- but I wanted to update my review first.
Great until....
by some willy wonka BS on 2018/11/16 18:05
This game teaches you well how to play and I even got addicted for the next few hours UNTIL I got to one of the tournaments that require a golden ticket instead of chips. There are two ways to get tickets. 1. Spin the wheel (2. On the one on one challenges. Fast forward seven weeks todayI-still haven’t gotten a ticket and today I’m deleting this app and hoping to find a better one
What happened?
by JessYoYoYo on 2017/09/08 15:17
I've been playing this game for about a week and I have enjoyed it. But, something has magically gone wrong. Can somebody please explain why it shows the "youda games" screen, but fails to launch past that when I attempt to open it??? I've won almost every trophy in South America and now the app won't open. Aaarrrggghhh!!! I will gladly update this 2-star review to a better rating if somebody can help me fix it, but this is unacceptable. Thanks!
Hmm
by Pilipaa on 2019/07/27 19:53
So I have a love hate feeling towards this game as poker for me in general is fun, however this game executes it kinda predictable. Every first couple rounds the some AI will raise or go all in like it could be their first hand and they have nothing, just absurd gameplay. Flopping top hands or catching top hands on turn. This game can be frustrating like poker in a way that when you lose you lose, it just aint your day.
Good concept
by AsianAgentVenom on 2018/09/22 22:57
Decent game with ads that give you more chips cool. But other than he tournament style structure itself. If your low on chips your stuck till you can either buy or free tournament comes up. If it only had a practice mode were you can play without gaining or losing chips we would be able to hone your skills it’d be way better.

A.ok!
it’s good but may cost you a lot of money
by dominic thai tran on 2019/09/20 07:19
hi guys, here’s my real story. i’ve been playing this game for one month since i was in the flight back to us from hong kong. i’ve beated all 66 cities with 64 golden and 2 silver trophies (LA and Portland), 2nd place in world rank. you need to be first in LA to meet ‘god father’. i’ll finish soon ‘not enough chips right now’ with first 1.98$ to remove ads, and then using free chips and ticket from daily challenge, spin and heads up. they’re not smart as i thought - AI i assume, but i’m sure they don’t know your cards in hand. so you can totally win them if you have good skills (up to 80%). it would depend on your observation, statistic and probability, guessing and so forth. in my opinion, playing card is probable game, everyone has the same chance to have bad or good cards. don’t be too happy or angry, let play cool, compute and consider thoroughly, you’ll win them. important tip is push them out ASAP when you feel your cards strong enogh, don’t let them open 4th or 5th card. 20% remain relies on computer’s cheat or lucky, i don’t know. there were a lot of three of kinds, flush, and straight for their card, and always happened in 5th card. i almost beated it, but when they nearly lose, they did all-in and miracle thing happened. regardless how many players in a table, you actually fight with 3 smart characters, who’re pretty the same in all cities, about 10 guys like that. you can realize them. So, enjoy playing and don’t let them take out your real money good luck
Not fair
by gamer12311:4 on 2019/09/17 13:41
At the end you will realize... this game is design to make you buy chips with real money. It’s design in the way that each time I add chips to play black jack.. I will lose... we can never win because it’s well calculated...
When can we expect Poker World 2
by x7H on 2019/09/13 07:28
This game has been highly enjoyable for me. I work on ships and spend most of my time without WiFi. I hoping for a new version with more cities or you can just change the name to Poker Universe and just change the names of the 66 tournament sites. I’ll go for that. No other poker game looks or sounds as good as yours. I finished this game on 4 different devices I only paid the 2 dollars on each device to get rid of the advertising, but I would pay much more for 100 or 200 cities on Poker World 2 or Poker Universe 1.

Good graphics, sucky algorithms.
by Avgeek425 on 2019/09/02 17:32
I enjoy this game. The graphics are good. The offline feature is awesome. But the algorithms really need to be improved. The game is basically stacked against you. Doesn’t feel genuinely like a real poker game. It’s almost as if the computer knows your cards. Now I understand if the developers and programmers are over their heads with finding the right algorithms. That’s ok. That’s why other games make more money anyway. But...how about increasing incentives. Like instead of waiting 9 minutes to play the free game, you can increase the rewards and lower the time to keep players more engaged in the game. If you can’t fix the algorithms I think you can increase the rewards side to boost player’s advantage to win and keep them engaged in the game.

A beautiful money pit
by nabneumeier on 2019/08/21 10:32
I love almost everything about this game. It’s very well put together and easy to use, plus the side challenges are entertaining. What I don’t like is that the AI is always the luckiest SOB on the planet. The further along you get, the longer your unlucky streak gets, which is frustrating. I won a tournament off of bluffing and only had two hands that would’ve legit won in all the rounds combined. It is really geared towards having you spend money, which is fine if the creator would let you replay locations you’ve already won, but you can’t. I just uninstall and reinstall when I get to the point where I have to actually pay for chips with no chance of winning that money back. Overall it’s a good app.

by terrrriiibbbble on 2019/08/13 10:13
The farther you go the worse it gets. Opponents are drawing dead and consistently hit the river. The game is rigged and meant to frustrate you to get you to buy currency. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy any hold em game on a mobile device unless you just want to play a few hands here and there.

Basically, they corner you into in-app purchases. You cannot go back and play levels to earn money and they drain you of tickets as fast as they possibly can. Ridiculous. The only real option is to buy them so you have a chance to keep going. Wasted too much time on this. Play Zynga Poker. Much better and against real people.

by zion11.com on 2019/07/27 23:05
Actually quite fun for a while, but the game won't let you reach Las Vegas (unless you spend A LOT of real money). The way the game is designed, you can play for free and win in almost all cities, but you will never earn enough to reach Vegas, even if you win in all the other tournaments. That's the catch.
Just a money maker for the author
by AllRoundGuy on 2019/07/27 21:44
If you expect to play a poker simulator, this is NOT the game for you. If you just want to kill some time playing around with a poker game that you don’t expect too much from, this is okay. I haven’t spent a dime on this game and I’m glad. This game has up to 39, so far, cartoon characters that you play against. Remarkably they play aggressively and are extremely lucky - like going all in with a pair of threes before the flop against a pair of aces and surprisingly; snicker, snicker; hitting a third three. The probability of winning with pocket aces is 31.6% or about once three hands where you have pocket aces. I’ve had pocket aces numerous times and have yet to win a showdown with them and have only won twice going all in with them. The main point to this game is to make you watch commercials or pay for extra items, in other words, to make lots of money for the author.

Not a fair representation of actual poker play
by Simple Review on 2019/07/15 04:52
Can you play poker offline - yes, can you beat the AI - yes, is this game worth your time - no. Just won the Eastern US tournament (first tourney of the game). The tournament is a $10K buy-in with 24 people in a winner takes all payout. So, the payout should be.... $240K, right? Wrong, a measly $20K. And it gets worse, the game makes you buy items - to boost your reputation of course. So, all that money that you risk amounts to about $4K in “winnings”. What player would ever risk that kind of odds? The game is not meant for anything other than to give the developer real money to continue playing. This game lost all credibility in my book.
painfully slow
by kzme on 2019/07/13 04:03
too much waiting around for animation to finish. and u will need to pay real money for chips or tickets when you run out as there is no quick way to replenish. this is a free game only for the first few levels.

Way too many ads
by Boston Bud on 2019/07/08 10:10
Coincidentally, you’ll have three of a kind and then all of a sudden your opponent will have a flush or straight. All the doing is getting you to buy more chips and the constant ads are very annoying

Well Designed BUT ....
by petesamzeke on 2019/06/26 13:21
This game is well designed, and could be five stars - but it is clearly geared toward skimming money off the users. If you don’t want to constantly spend your real money for more chips etc, you will have to patiently use the ‘Spin’ and ‘Free Games’ features to build up cash - then expect to be beaten by your cartoon opponents making successful bad bets against your rational ones. You can also expect to frequently receive a ‘five-two’ (or similar) hand three times in a row and/or frequently be beaten by a flush or full-house that is one card better than yours. It’s annoying that the game doesnt produce an honest card distribution and result. If you can overlook that, then you might have some fun with this game. Is it really too much to ask to have a well-designed, honest play, Texas Hold Em App?
Cheats & Expensive
by the tactition on 2019/06/25 23:59
This game will NOT allow you to continue to play unless you spend “Chips” which must be won or purchased to buy stupid things like fake sunglasses, houses, and motorbikes. Even if you win every tournament, you will not have enough chips to continue playing unless you purchase them for outrageous prices. The more you play, the more expensive this game becomes. Further, you’ll find their algorithms provide you with about 70% straight and flush draws during an average tournament table while also providing your competition with an 85% likelihood of pocket pairs or two pairs per tournament. Further STILL, the algorithm isn’t sophisticated enough to enable computer generated players the opportunities for true poker finesse. Thus, they consistently lay traps for you until the river is played or they immediately go all in before the flop. This occurs with about an 89% rate of repetition per tournament. Garbage app.
Higher you go the worse it gets
by irishbes on 2019/06/13 03:46
Started off great. Was getting good hands. Characters would fold when they didn’t have a hand. Then I got to the last game in North America. Had to win that one to move on. Then the hands went to hell. Rarely even got any paint let alone pairs. Played 5 rounds. Other characters would stay on crap hands and then low and behold. Always seemed to win on the river. Then guess what $1.99 for more chips. I did it once. That was enough to see it wasn’t about a fair game. But how many $1.99 they can scam. No idea why there are so many good ratings. It’s a scam. No way is it not rigged to make you buy more chips
Not worth it
by Freak2111 on 2019/06/09 23:52
Don’t waste your time with this game. It is set 100% against you. No way in the world will you see 3 quads and a royal flush in the same game. CHEAT!!!!!!! Spend your time doing anything else.
Pay to win
by GomezAdams on 2019/06/05 16:23
This game is rigged. If you buy chips, you get better hands. When you run out of chips, the cards do not go your way anymore. They say that it is realistic but there is no way that you or your opponent will get draws like this, on a consistent basis in real life. I’m done.

Yes, it’s rigged. But what do you expect?
by Ringorizzak on 2019/05/09 18:10
Like the other reviewers have said, this game has an algorithm that lets you win with crazy impossible long shots, but then you lose with them too. I’ve been playing B/M poker and online poker 20 years, and the number of 1 outers and runner-runners when you have the computer dead to rights is just silly. I understand apps are meant to make money, but I’d rather just pay $9.99 up front and have realistic odds. Instead I refuse pay a dime and just move on to other games until it will let me win again. (Also some of the tournaments are structured where if you fold the first 8 hands you’re blinded out which is just bonkers. But anyway...) So if you’re looking to pass time it’s a good game. But don’t think that you’re learning anything about realistic hand outcomes- for entertainment purposes only.

Paid $15 and my purchased items never appeared
by JuliannaB1983 on 2019/04/28 03:17
I submitted the issue to their Helpdesk. They asked for screenshots proving my purchase. I asked for clarification but didn’t hear back, possibly because it was a Friday. I figured it out on my own and provided the screenshots. No reply so far, but it’s the weekend now, so I’m hoping I’ll hear back soon. I’m blocked by a paywall and the items I purchased to get past the paywall never appeared. I understand the need for paywalls for free-to-play games, but I think it’s important that the developers prioritize fixing bugs such as this: If you’re going to block players from proceeding in a game until they pay, please make sure when I do pay, that my purchase is reflected in the app. Seems reasonable, right? I’m guessing it had something to do with a bad network connection, but who knows. Hopefully we can get the issue resolved soon.
Good, but unnecessarily fast-paced
by Thomas Tvileren on 2019/04/26 11:12
Decent game, but a pity that the hands pass by without giving beginners a chance to quite understand what happened. That’s necessary in an online game, but not in a simulator like this. There should be a “continue” button or something at the end of a hand.

1 round in to each tournament, you are short stacked unless you double up. 3rd place in a 24 person tournament doesn’t even refund your buy in. Designed to make micro transactions the only way to consistently proceed. Better apps that are more fair out there.

Stick with Governor of Poker
by sad engineering phd on 2019/03/24 09:57
Stay with their other title! The play is about the same, I’d say Governor is if anything a bit more lively, faster paced and the interface there is better laid-out. My beef with this game is that it’s trying very hard to be a money as in real dollars sink. In Governor, there was always a way (involving playing poker, not watching ads or waiting days for a trickle of random chips to come in) to claw back up from zero chips after a run of bad luck. In this title, nope - you can’t even go back to older tournaments with lower buy ins because they are shut off forever once you win them. Pay real money to get fake money in order to keep going? Nope.

I would lose after going all in every time and I would lose all of my money every time! Do not play this game!

This app is garbage and glitchy. The in app purchases don’t always work. It’s always asking me to verify my account then puts me into some odd nonsensical loop. I’ve invested a couple of weeks into it and the level of frustration is maddening...could be that I’m using an older iPhone but I wanted to keep playing...the inability to buy tickets using my Apple ID account is the straw the broke me...I do not recommend.

Not terrible, but...
by DJ Sam.r.i on 2019/02/17 04:00
There seems to be a very heavy tilt of unfairness for the NPC. They could have a garbage hand and nothing on the flop, but you have a decent pair. You make a bet serious bet that NO REAL PLAYER would match with the cards their holding and they end up with a 3 of a kind from the next 2 cards. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. It's like the NPCs already KNOW what cards are coming up. Still a fun game if you can pick up on the way the game cheats (because it is consistent) and fold when that happens EVEN IF YOU HAVE A DECENT HAND you still have to fold or you WILL lose. Not sure what algorithm the devs are using, but it is a SERIOUS advantage for the NPCs

by Tobslice on 2019/02/13 03:05
I’ve been playing for a week. Very fun the first couple days. 2 main problems. First, they try to get your money. If you lose a few tournaments (highly likely), you can’t go back and replay a tournament you’ve already won, and it takes virtual currency to enter most tournaments. It’s very tempting to drop actual money to get some VC to play tournaments. Second, the goal is to increase your world ranking. I’ve already noticed that a head to head challenge is very difficult...it’s as if the AI can see my cards and/or knows what cards are coming up. Several times, the AI went all in with bad cards and then caught a straight or flush or 3 of a kind on the river. Like the AI doubled up on me 3 hands in a row via a river miracle. So occasionally, the odds are stacked against the player, you lose VC, they try to get you to spend real money. Very fun game if you don’t care about progressing and just want to play a hand of poker on the toilet every once in a while.
All in on every hand.
by An older roblox player on 2019/02/12 22:47
I’ve tried playing this but it gets frustrating when the other “players “ have extremely high tendencies to go all in on every hand. It’s hard to tell if they are bluffing or not. If you are trying to play more conservatively then this game is going to beat you every time.
No help
by kimberly1963 on 2019/02/10 05:09
I loved playing this game until I could not go to next level and I had already complete all the spots but it kept saying finish previous spot well I looked several times there was no more spots so I installed it and I keep my progress I had played daily I was a good bit far in the game well when I reinstalled the app it kept wanting me to start at the beginning I emailed I know 10times or more they gave me every reason you can think of as to why I couldn’t get back to my level everything they ask me to do did now I can’t even get email back I suggest not getting this app there support system is not worth nothing
A disappointing money grab
by Stix in the house on 2019/02/03 04:04
This game is just a money grab. The buy-ins are too much and the profit too little. The AI seem to know every time they are going to get a good hand even when they have 2, 6 off suit they’ll go all in pre flop and end up with a straight. This is an unfair poker experience. There has to be a better poker game out there seriously DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS GAME!!!
Good practice!

A beautiful money pit
by nabneumeier on 2019/08/21 10:32
I love almost everything about this game. It’s very well put together and easy to use, plus the side challenges are entertaining. What I don’t like is that the AI is always the luckiest SOB on the planet. The further along you get, the longer your unlucky streak gets, which is frustrating. I won a tournament off of bluffing and only had two hands that would’ve legit won in all the rounds combined. It is really geared towards having you spend money, which is fine if the creator would let you replay locations you’ve already won, but you can’t. I just uninstall and reinstall when I get to the point where I have to actually pay for chips with no chance of winning that money back. Overall it’s a good app.
There’s good news, and there’s...
by Vintagenarian on 2018/10/19 22:17
I enjoy this game. It’s well-designed and fun to play (there’s a big But coming…read on). I’m a seasoned player, do not mind losing fairly, and play this game on my iPad at least 1-2 hours every day as a side diversion while working at my desk. I’ve achieved the #3 ranked player in “the world,” and have (eventually) won tournaments on nearly all continents. But after playing for a couple months now, and spending some $100 in Real Money for additional chips (the pleasure has been worth it to me), I’ll soon be letting my $20 million bank play out and move on. The honest reason is simple: the “house” (in this case the developer) uses shills, in the form of cartoon players, who make completely unrealistic bets having only one obvious purpose: to separate you from your money. No reasonable player ever goes All-In with the absurd frequency of these toon bozos; no real player ever bluffs that much or that foolishly. After all, cartoon players have nothing to lose. The end result, with frequent annoyance, takes away from the true enjoyment of this game when you know you’re being cheated by the house. For beginners, this is a good and fun way to learn Texas Holdem, with beautiful graphics. But if you expect fair rules in the long term, find another version of the game. (To the developer: this isn’t a decent way to make money, folks. Offer honest players an honest game, and you’ll have loyal users like me stay all-in for the long haul.)
Simulation needs work
by Tom can't find a unique nick on 2018/10/19 13:13
I appreciate that this poker app has tasteful, elegant graphics and photo-realistic avatars. However, after four months of play, I have come to the conclusion that this product does not (yet) employ fair game play algorithms nor random shuffle. For example, your simulated opponents will frequently go "all in" before the flop for hands they could not win without the turn or river. Low card and other junk hands that most players would fold become full house or straight draws that justify open bets. It is as though the outcome of each round is known and your simulated opponents bet accordingly. That is frustrating. Also tournaments seem rigged in your favor such that, unless you really botch your hands, you'll likely end up at the top so it's easier to advance to the next tournament. I hoped for an authentic experience in order to improve my betting game. If you just want to practice Texas Hold 'Em in a gorgeous environment and don't care strongly about authenticity, I would recommend this app. However I plan to look for another poker app that better simulates real game play.
Pay to Play!
by CrPokeHer on 2018/12/12 20:03
4.3 out of 5? Uh huh. The tournaments aren’t worth playing once you advance. You actually lose money in every tournament you play in no matter what place you take. If you come in scone or third you may as well not even play. Buy in for 40k. Third place gets 7k in a 16 person tournament. Ok. It’s all just a way to get you to buy chips. If the payouts were more realistic there’d be no reason for you to have to pay to keep playing in the tournaments so they keep the prize money low so you end up running out. I refuse to pay for more chips so I end up waiting 4 hours at a time to spin or play free heads up games. I’ve been beaten so many times when the computer only has 1 out, or to 4 card straits or a 4 card flush. It happens way too often in this game to be coincidence. You put your money in with the best hand and more often than not you’re losing. The only way to win these tournaments is to play extremely tight and only bet when you have the nuts. But then the screwed up blind system catches up with you and you’re basically done. Again all a way for them to keep your chips low so you buy more. Waste of time, don’t waste your money by paying.

Completely Shameful
by Moxthafox on 2018/11/02 13:50
A smooth, entertaining offline poker game (albeit perhaps a bit strange algorithm design at some points) utterly ruined by blatant attempts of getting its players to pay real-world cash. The Ticket System in the game is a slap in the face to people who simply want a decent offline poker game. There comes a point in the game where it quite literally does not let you play any more poker until you reach for your real world wallet. Once you win a tournament in a certain area, you can’t go back and play it to get more chips or even just play it for fun. On top of that hurdle, they also have areas that you cannot play without having a Ticket, and you can’t take on any bosses without completing the whole area. In short, the game is designed to draw you in for cash, just like 99% of all of these horrible excuses for mobile games nowadays. It’s completely pathetic. Whatever happened to Angry Birds and Plants Vs. Zombies, where you didn’t have to vigilantly wait for ads to pop up every time you do ANY ACTION on the game? It’s a slap in the face.
Just a money maker for the author
by AllRoundGuy on 2019/07/27 21:44
If you expect to play a poker simulator, this is NOT the game for you. If you just want to kill some time playing around with a poker game that you don’t expect too much from, this is okay. I haven’t spent a dime on this game and I’m glad. This game has up to 39, so far, cartoon characters that you play against. Remarkably they play aggressively and are extremely lucky - like going all in with a pair of threes before the flop against a pair of aces and surprisingly; snicker, snicker; hitting a third three. The probability of winning with pocket aces is 31.6% or about once three hands where you have pocket aces. I’ve had pocket aces numerous times and have yet to win a showdown with them and have only won twice going all in with them. The main point to this game is to make you watch commercials or pay for extra items, in other words, to make lots of money for the author.
Not a free game. Here’s why
by Krosisa on 2018/09/04 17:02
This game is not only free but in a sense a subscription service game. Here’s why 1. The ticket system. In each region, there will be at least one city where you must pay a ticket to play, not the chips you’ve won. Tickets are cash only items. The way the game is designed, if you win a city (get gold) you can not play the city again. So eventually you are stuck in a situation where you can’t play any poker game unless you buy a ticket from the cash shop. The response from the company to that will be there is a free daily challenge system where if you win 10 games, you get a ticket for free. Fair enough. Here’s the catch: you need to wait 4 hours in between each game so even if you are playing on the dot, you can’t play a real poker game (daily challenge is 1:1, not a tournament style) for 40 hours. The game is designed to get you stuck where you have to pay cash to play any more. 2. The ads. The unskippable, long, video ads before every single game. I understand they need to play ads because the game is offered “free” notwithstanding my point above. But the sheer amount of as on this thing was unbelievable. I did pay the money to get rid of the ads - that is before I got stuck in the situation mentioned above with the ticket and ads don’t matter anymore since I can’t play a game without paying more money. Good game, but terrible cash cow design.

Chips

Loved it at first. Was cruising along, all of the sudden I lose 3 games in a row on unbelievably bad beats on the river and I have 900 chips left and the cheapest tournament I can play is 30,000. I refuse to spend any more real money, it’ll be a month before I can do enough daily challenges or watch 4 ads every 3 days before I can even play another tournament with hopes of getting at least second place to salvage some money. In what world do you lose money if you get 3rd? I mean seriously. The payouts are not nearly high enough compared to the buy in. A very obvious cash grab and it must be working well because they will not change it. I have now deleted the game in search of a more realistic and fair playing experience. P.S offer some type of exhibition or allow old tournaments to be played. Don’t want to shell out 30k in chips every time I feel like playing a game. Hopefully they fix it to stop the exodus of users. Until then I’m moving on.
Well Designed BUT ....
by petesamzeke on 2019/06/26 13:21
This game is well designed, and could be five stars - but it is clearly geared toward skimming money off the users. If you don’t want to constantly spend your real money for more chips etc, you will have to patiently use the ‘Spin’ and ‘Free Games’ features to build up cash - then expect to be beaten by your cartoon opponents making successful bad bets against your rational ones. You can also expect to frequently receive a ‘five-two’ (or similar) hand three times in a row and/or frequently be beaten by a flush or full-house that is one card better than yours. It’s annoying that the game doesnt produce an honest card distribution and result. If you can overlook that, then you might have some fun with this game. Is it really too much to ask to have a well-designed, honest play, Texas Hold Em App?
Incorrect Review
by Its free and fun! on 2018/10/17 16:57
One reviewer wrote that this was a “cash cow” game and the only way to get tickets is to buy them. Untrue. I’ve never spent a dime on this game and have earned well over a million dollars, lost it and rebuilt it again. The game give the option for a free spin every 3 hours and you can play one on one to earn cash and tickets! Additionally if you turn in the airplane mode in your device you can play ad free. I think this is a great game.
Cheats & Expensive
by the tactition on 2019/06/25 23:59
This game will NOT allow you to continue to play unless you spend “Chips” which must be won or purchased to buy stupid things like fake sunglasses, houses, and motorbikes. Even if you win every tournament, you will not have enough chips to continue playing unless you purchase them for outrageous prices. The more you play, the more expensive this game becomes. Further, you’ll find their algorithms provide you with about 70% straight and flush draws during an average tournament table while also providing your competition with an 85% likelihood of pocket pairs or two pairs per tournament. Further STILL, the algorithm isn’t sophisticated enough to enable computer generated players the opportunities for true poker finesse. Thus, they consistently lay traps for you until the river is played or they immediately go all in before the flop. This occurs with about an 89% rate of repetition per tournament. Garbage app.
A good offline poker game
by Tmwill on 2018/08/22 22:10
I wanted to find a poker game that I could just play and not have to deal with crazy all-in every single hand, that online free poker usually is. This is a good game, with fairly decent computer play. I wouldn’t call it great because they way they structure the tournaments needs some work. What I mean is, the tournament as you travel through the different areas never really changes. The amount of chips you start with continues to increase as you move up and win tournaments, but the small/big blinds increase at the same level. So, each tournament throughout the entire game is the exact same experience. The number of starting chips increase, but the amount of play doesn’t. So, each tournament experience is basically the same.
Terrible
by Pillseller on 2018/10/20 01:06
First week I thought it was awesome, beatable players, logical advancement, and the offline stuff was great; play only when you want to play. Then Atlantic City hit, 23 players to beat and I’ve had bad beats that are beyond absurd. It’s been 6 weeks and still can’t beat it. It’s literally level one. I play poker weekly, I’m don’t have a bracelet or anything but I can hold my own. The bad beats are so over the top it’s not even fun. Just now on the first hand with 24 players in, 2 before me go all in. I call with a AK suited. Cards flip and the other players have 7-4 off-suit and 6-10 suited. No way anyone would go all in with that crap from the first hand of a tourney. Flop comes 5-6-8. Computer flops a straight and I’m first out. This has happened every other day for 6 weeks. If you want an unrealistic game to test your bad beat patience then this is for you, otherwise skip it. It’s ridiculous.
Paid $15 and my purchased items never appeared
by JuliannaB1983 on 2019/04/28 03:17
I submitted the issue to their Helpdesk. They asked for screenshots proving my purchase. I asked for clarification but didn’t hear back, possibly because it was a Friday. I figured it out on my own and provided the screenshots. No reply so far, but it’s the weekend now, so I’m hoping I’ll hear back soon. I’m blocked by a paywall and the items I purchased to get past the paywall never appeared. I understand the need for paywalls for free-to-play games, but I think it’s important that the developers prioritize fixing bugs such as this: If you’re going to block players from proceeding in a game until they pay, please make sure when I do pay, that my purchase is reflected in the app. Seems reasonable, right? I’m guessing it had something to do with a bad network connection, but who knows. Hopefully we can get the issue resolved soon.
I’m on the fence, leaning towards neg side
by ---123--- simple on 2018/07/02 21:11
I started off really enjoying this game, I redid some games, turned everything into gold trophy’s 5-6 total, an I can’t play at all anymore because I don’t have tickets,an I’m low on cash, I’m stuck waiting on daily challenges, now my thinking is this ,I’m here at your game, why are you making me go look for other games to entertain myself ,while I wait on your time restrictions, find me something to do, also I”ll talk quickly about the cost of entry vs rewards $$ won. It should not penalize you for winning an trying to move along you need bigger payouts, Something is off on the entry costs an cash lost or won to play.( I can’t stress this enough, there should be something to keep me on your game because I’m losing interest quickly waiting on tickets.)
Good graphics, sucky algorithms.
by Avgeek425 on 2019/09/02 17:32
I enjoy this game. The graphics are good. The offline feature is awesome. But the algorithms really need to be improved. The game is basically stacked against you. Doesn’t feel genuinely like a real poker game. It’s almost as if the computer knows your cards. Now I understand if the developers and programmers are over their heads with finding the right algorithms. That’s ok. That’s why other games make more money anyway. But...how about increasing incentives. Like instead of waiting 9 minutes to play the free game, you can increase the rewards and lower the time to keep players more engaged in the game. If you can’t fix the algorithms I think you can increase the rewards side to boost player’s advantage to win and keep them engaged in the game.
One star cash grab
by TheBet777 on 2018/03/13 20:41
This game went from 5 stars to 1 star in my mind. Great interface and gameplay, and was fun to start. But... it starts off with small tournaments with 5-8 players and low buy-ins. I was enjoying the game and paid money to remove ads. Soon after that, the tournaments have higher buyins and more players, but the payoffs remain small. A tournament with 16 players and $5k buyin, but you only get $9k for winning and $3k for coming in 3rd? How does that make sense? The next one is 24 players and $10k buyin, but you only get $19k for winning and nothing for 2nd or 3rd. If you play twice, win one and come in 2nd one, you’re actually down chips! With 24 players! After paying money for chips (and remove ads), I’m out of chips after one day and feel like I was robbed. Not a good feeling.
Good turned bad
by UnkownClicker on 2018/07/16 14:10
The game started off really well (5 stars), but the tournament payoffs after the 5th tournament aren’t really worth it. You spend $5k, to win a total of $8,800, so you only win $3,300. If you get third in that same tournament, you “win” (if that’s what you want to call it) a negative $2600. How does placing in a tournament lose you money...? That doesn’t make any sense. On top of that, you can do different things to gain some money back (that you’re getting screwed over on in tournaments). However, you can win a measly $1k (which is barely a drop in the bucket). Then wait 4 HOURS for another shot at $1k. Gameplay and everything else is great, but you can’t play anything if you don’t have the virtual money to play. Of course, you can always pay to play, but that’s ridiculous.
When can we expect Poker World 2
by x7H on 2019/09/13 07:28
This game has been highly enjoyable for me. I work on ships and spend most of my time without WiFi. I hoping for a new version with more cities or you can just change the name to Poker Universe and just change the names of the 66 tournament sites. I’ll go for that. No other poker game looks or sounds as good as yours. I finished this game on 4 different devices I only paid the 2 dollars on each device to get rid of the advertising, but I would pay much more for 100 or 200 cities on Poker World 2 or Poker Universe 1.
Don’t download unless you plan on spending real money
by Casual Poker on 2018/09/24 03:46
This game seemed fun enough until I spent the weekend watching the computer act like no other poker player on the planet. This game is rigged for you to have to spend real money. Every time it looks like you are about to advance you watch the computer move all in with 2 + 7 pre flop and end up with a full house. I’ve seen the computer catch 4 of kind multiple times in consecutive sessions. Then once you have exhausted your bank of money the only alternative is to purchase in game currency with real money. Don’t fall for this trap. If they were running a legit game I’d say it could be worth it. But after deleting and re-downloading the game at least a dozen times, I’ve realized that you literally can’t win.
Not terrible, but...
by DJ Sam.r.i on 2019/02/17 04:00
There seems to be a very heavy tilt of unfairness for the NPC. They could have a garbage hand and nothing on the flop, but you have a decent pair. You make a bet serious bet that NO REAL PLAYER would match with the cards their holding and they end up with a 3 of a kind from the next 2 cards. I've lost count of how many times this has happened. It's like the NPCs already KNOW what cards are coming up. Still a fun game if you can pick up on the way the game cheats (because it is consistent) and fold when that happens EVEN IF YOU HAVE A DECENT HAND you still have to fold or you WILL lose. Not sure what algorithm the devs are using, but it is a SERIOUS advantage for the NPCs
Great game... for about a week
by nsanteramo on 2018/07/10 03:39
Game is very obviously made to hook consumer so they spend money. At first, buy ins and payouts are proportional to something you’d expect. After you win six or seven small tournaments, the buy in’s start getting ridiculous in comparison to the payouts. For example, a 16-person tournament with a 10k chip buy in will pay out like 18k if you win, 11k for second, and 7k for third. You could be the best tournament player in the world and you’ll lose money quickly in the long run as you’ll get bad cards and lose... it’s poker. If you don’t place top two in ever tournament you play on average, you’ll be forced to buy chips which is next to impossible with 16-24 other players. Great game, cool set up, but unnecessarily challenging
Fun until you’re stuck
by eslackey on 2019/01/29 02:58
They make it super hard to earn tickets. Eventually you get stuck and can’t even play poker unless you pay them real $. It’s easy to make “game” money by winning, but you rarely can win tickets. It can take a week of daily challenges before you get a ticket. The daily “spin” NEVER lands on the tickets. There should be a better way to earn them other than paying actual money. It makes the game not fun for people that can’t afford to buy a bunch of digital tickets. I get that developers have to make money, but let me watch some ads for the tickets or something, or earn them in Blackjack, or make the spins actually land on them occasionally.
Stuck...
by Schmeldo on 2018/04/30 15:43
I've been playing this game for a couple months. Started it to practice for a charity tournament I was in. I've enjoyed it and haven't had to pay for chips yet, but I'm stuck on Brazil. 26K buy-in, have to beat 16 players to advance. I've come in 2nd or 3rd several times, but can't get past it. It's frustrating as heck. I actually "spent" almost 250K chips trying to beat it. If that's the way they get you to buy chips, it ain't happening.
Stick with Governor of Poker
by sad engineering phd on 2019/03/24 09:57
Stay with their other title! The play is about the same, I’d say Governor is if anything a bit more lively, faster paced and the interface there is better laid-out. My beef with this game is that it’s trying very hard to be a money as in real dollars sink. In Governor, there was always a way (involving playing poker, not watching ads or waiting days for a trickle of random chips to come in) to claw back up from zero chips after a run of bad luck. In this title, nope - you can’t even go back to older tournaments with lower buy ins because they are shut off forever once you win them. Pay real money to get fake money in order to keep going? Nope.
No help
by kimberly1963 on 2019/02/10 05:09
I loved playing this game until I could not go to next level and I had already complete all the spots but it kept saying finish previous spot well I looked several times there was no more spots so I installed it and I keep my progress I had played daily I was a good bit far in the game well when I reinstalled the app it kept wanting me to start at the beginning I emailed I know 10times or more they gave me every reason you can think of as to why I couldn’t get back to my level everything they ask me to do did now I can’t even get email back I suggest not getting this app there support system is not worth nothing
Tell me how
by slbarnett on 2019/09/08 12:43
I love games of skill and learning to play Texas Holden was something I’ve wanted to do. However this game is quiet ridiculous on odds from what I’ve watched on tv. It is really unrealistic how many times I’ve lost when one of the fake players goes all in and I match it and loose when I have three of a kind or two high pair. How likely is it that I would have three aces and the other player will have a straight so often. I call bull #*%&!!! I have never seen other players go all in so often either as these guys. It’s absurd. Impossible to know when they have a good had or not.
Almost impossible to beat the computer!
by wrobbiehill on 2019/08/12 20:12
I was excited about an offline poker game but I am disappointed in this game. I spent hours paying the same computer avatar no matter what if I raise they folded and they always check no matter what it’s alway a check and then goes all in. Almost every time I would have the best hand and the computer would know that the river card would be take the pot of it it was the flop. I’ve never seen the “luck” that this game gives to the computer in my life playing online poker. Don’t waste your time on this game like I did.
Higher you go the worse it gets
by irishbes on 2019/06/13 03:46
Started off great. Was getting good hands. Characters would fold when they didn’t have a hand. Then I got to the last game in North America. Had to win that one to move on. Then the hands went to hell. Rarely even got any paint let alone pairs. Played 5 rounds. Other characters would stay on crap hands and then low and behold. Always seemed to win on the river. Then guess what $1.99 for more chips. I did it once. That was enough to see it wasn’t about a fair game. But how many $1.99 they can scam. No idea why there are so many good ratings. It’s a scam. No way is it not rigged to make you buy more chips
100% cash grab
by Krabby on 2018/05/14 03:04
This is the first review I’ve ever written on Apple store. This game is ok until you have to win a 24 person tourney advance in the game. You literally can’t go any further in the game until you WIN this tourney. Winning a 24 person tourney is hard enough, but they rig it so you have no possible way of winning. The buy in is $10k so you will need to spend real money to get more chips. You go all in and everybody calls. And you won’t win. I somehow managed to actually finish 2nd twice. Both times i had much better hand to win tourney and both times got rivered. Run far away from this game.
Easy and Nice Graphics
by SheldonCPR93 on 2018/03/13 01:43
This game is so well made. It is nice go around the world playing matches to improve your game. What I love about it is , the game gives you many chances to enjoy for free and to get chips to keep playing. Even if you are a beginner the game have a small tutorial and hands that you will feel comfortable playing . Nice game , but a lots of adds be patient and have a good game
Great game bad thinking
by flipflopdripdrop on 2019/09/10 17:48
The game itself is wonderfully crafted. The mechanics and fluidity of the game itself are great. The only issue I have with the game is that there comes a point where you cannot progress without spending money if you fail. In order to get to Atlantic City, you need to beat the #10 seed and obtain 2 golden tickets. Using these tickets you can buy into a game and if you win you can continue. If you lose like me you are stuck in a position of paying to progress
Best offline poker game....
by XerophyllumTenax on 2018/08/03 22:37
Takes a while to read the AI characters, but once you get to playing against them the better you get at when and what to bet. I also like the around the world concept of the game. Build another offline hold em game using different avatars and no ticket required entry fee, but the same game engine.
HUGE SCAM
by Christian431 on 2018/10/18 04:21
(Game started out great) I’ve Been stuck on the South America São Paulo tournament sense August. The game is set up to where the computer gives you bad hands continuously. The bets just get higher and higher. I’ve put over $40 into this game and still can’t beat it. I’m a very experienced poker played and this game is a complete scam. You can wait 40 hours to gain money to play tournaments and maybe win a ticket but the further you get its all about paying to play. As you advance there’s no 2nd and 3rd payouts or purses you either get first or you’re out of luck and get nothing... I give this game 0 stars ...
Barely tolerable
by DJ J Dot on 2019/08/14 05:14
This isn’t the worst poker game out there (one extra star for offline play) but like most of the others, its insistent dependence on forcing you towards in-app purchases make the game mechanics vastly less realistic than live opponents. We are clearly light years away from a free or cheap offline app that even vaguely resembles an actual poker game, ironically because of capitalism, but this game was tolerable for longer than the others, and I’ve played most of them. It’s still a disheartening farce, and a grotesque insult to a beautiful game.
Ticket money grab
by Crucifiction machine on 2018/08/24 00:04
The ticket situation to play games is asinine. You either have to pay real money (which I did a couple times) to get tickets to play, or play the daily challenges for one ticket about every 1.5 days. They have a thing you can roll like a slot machine that gives chips, and it has a possibility to win tickets. But the ticket reward is always one slot away from being won. Which leads me to believe that it’s programmed that way to taunt you. It’s comical how often it happens really. I rarely pay money for an app and regret giving this developer money.
Annoyed
by naewill22 on 2018/06/25 18:08
A little annoying. They make it impossible to win and get the star level you need to play the next round. I have completed all the challenges on world 2 but can’t go on because I don’t have enough star power. I would have to pay to get star power or finish in first place every time. I don’t think that is is fair. If you finish in third second or first. You should get enough star power to continue.
Don’t waste your money
by Stooopud on 2019/08/22 01:20
This games only purpose is to make the developers money and they will force you to pay to continue. The computer knows what cards you have and what will be dealt to the point of going all-in preflop and making you waste your chips. Tickets are not awarded with enough frequency and you are forced to pay to play. Even if you pay to gain more chips or tickets, the games chemistry will not and will force you back into a corner. I like the art and style of the game, but cannot get past the forced microtransactions. Deleting.
Awesome
by TommyCliche on 2018/03/23 08:43
I love not having to play online- the only thing I would change is two amount of chips you have to enter each game with, I think it's just to get you to buy chips eventually, but other than that it's a very fun game.
Clearly rigged odds
by anon fish on 2019/01/06 18:56
Ok, ok. Everyone assumes that someone complaining about a poker game being rigged is a sore loser. Even though I might be a sore loser, this game is for sure rigged. How do I know? Pocket Rockets. Lots and lots of pocket rockets. Pocket aces only come up about 1 in 255 hands or so (if I remember the odds correctly). They are super rare. I’ve played about 300 hands so far, and every time I have KK or QQ or two pair, some npc has pocket aces. This has happened five or six times now. Further more, I haven’t been dealt pocket aces once. Smells very fishy to me. These kinds of odds don’t exist in live poker. Never have I ever seen pocket aces come up so frequently in my opponents hands. If you do play, expect a lot of bad beats likes this. Your opponents will have flushes frequently, straights frequently, pocket aces always. It feels like you’re playing a straight games with a bunch of people who have cards up their sleeves.
Rigged
by wildfire178 on 2019/07/21 14:42
This game is so rigged. They must have their on “players” at the tables programmed to have a better hand than you do. I’ve had straights numerous times only to be beaten 9 out of 10 time with a flush, same goes with two pair beaten by straights, flushes beaten by full house, not like in a real game this happens nearly every time. I actually bought gems to change into money and then it even got worse. Guess they figured I was fool enough to do it once that pthey would make me lose and do it again, no way don’t like to play with cheaters.
Good game but.....
by Capn' hooks on 2018/09/07 09:36
Once you win all the gold trophies you can only play the free daily game and blackjack boat, plus they still try to sell you chips AND tickets that you don’t need and can’t use. I was hoping I could keep my riches and start the game over from scratch. The game is kinda glitchy as well, it would freeze and cut out mid game and deny me from closing out their chip and ticket pop up window from time to time. Other than that it’s a good game and great way to practice poker.
in-app purchases
by Jkz1qe on 2018/07/08 21:33
my two-star review has become one star since the "update" that now demands money just to make the game functional with its ticket system and such. Some tournaments NOW you're JUST about to survive when three new players show up, and then you lose, and then the game locks up unless you buy more stuff. You know what'd be better? Charge something like $9.99 for the game and cut out the money pit in-app purchase garbage. I'm sick of it. I don't recommend this game, and am about to delete it- but I wanted to update my review first.
Great until....
by some willy wonka BS on 2018/11/16 18:05
This game teaches you well how to play and I even got addicted for the next few hours UNTIL I got to one of the tournaments that require a golden ticket instead of chips. There are two ways to get tickets. 1. Spin the wheel (2. On the one on one challenges. Fast forward seven weeks todayI-still haven’t gotten a ticket and today I’m deleting this app and hoping to find a better one
What happened?
by JessYoYoYo on 2017/09/08 15:17
I've been playing this game for about a week and I have enjoyed it. But, something has magically gone wrong. Can somebody please explain why it shows the "youda games" screen, but fails to launch past that when I attempt to open it??? I've won almost every trophy in South America and now the app won't open. Aaarrrggghhh!!! I will gladly update this 2-star review to a better rating if somebody can help me fix it, but this is unacceptable. Thanks!
Hmm
by Pilipaa on 2019/07/27 19:53
So I have a love hate feeling towards this game as poker for me in general is fun, however this game executes it kinda predictable. Every first couple rounds the some AI will raise or go all in like it could be their first hand and they have nothing, just absurd gameplay. Flopping top hands or catching top hands on turn. This game can be frustrating like poker in a way that when you lose you lose, it just aint your day.
Good concept
by AsianAgentVenom on 2018/09/22 22:57
Decent game with ads that give you more chips cool. But other than he tournament style structure itself. If your low on chips your stuck till you can either buy or free tournament comes up. If it only had a practice mode were you can play without gaining or losing chips we would be able to hone your skills it’d be way better.
