I’d like the play the app itself but “players” generated by it too often bet and raise as a group and do so in ways that humans never would. Have to assume this is a purposeful design element because no one who knows anything about poker would design this into their game. Unless they were a sadist, of course.
The computer wins on the river far more than probability allows. Betting 4-5x BB pre-flop on every hand is unrealistic. Used to be fun. Now just painful. Deleted from my iPhone
Overall this is a fun poker app, especially since it is free and ad-free. A couple things I'd like to see would be some "quick bet" buttons with various dollar amounts or 1/2 pot bet options so I don't always have to "dial in" my bet. Secondly would be an option to always skip the "acting" in portrait mode. Sometimes it's just easier to hold the phone that way but I dislike the cutaways most of the time. Really enjoy the app!
Not worth the time
Can you please update the app to where the ACTUAL winning hand wins ALL the money in the pot. I just “lost” a full house hand to two pair of 4’s and kings. Explain to me how in the world a pair of 4’s gets even a little bit of that pot when I win with Ace high boat with Kings
Best free game I’ve ever played
Apple did a great job with the new update but where was this update 10 years ago
Fun and fast. Best yet. Just a little hard to learn how easy it is to play this app. Somehow reading the instructions helped!
A great way to learn poker for free with no risk? Great idea! Bots constantly getting full houses and flushes? Never being able to win a game? Apple wth honestly. Came in excited, came away depressed by the lack of care in the app. Try a different game.
