Poker is one of the most played card games around the world. It’s not just a matter of luck but rather the art of bluffing that secures a special place for this game among the lovers. While there are thousands of dollars being placed on bet, the spirits are always high whether it’s a loss or a win. It’s not only a part of casino tables but rather has become a family game show over past few years with a nice way to spend quality time with your family. No matter you like it or not, Graphite Fusion has ensured that no one misses it!
We are talking about the new iOS app, Word Poker Live Free that has been developed by Graphite Fusion for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later version. It is the one and only app in the App Store that gives the players a chance to play live poker against real players in real-life situation. But the game is not just plain poker that you would find anywhere else, it is rather a combination of poker and scrabbles. If you remember, scrabbles ask you to create different words and the knowledge of the English language takes you home. A similar experience is offered by this app, but with a twist.
Each letter has a different value assigned to it depending upon the frequency of it occurring in the words. You are given three cards in the starting hand which denote the three letters. Now, you have to use these 3 letters along with 5 more laying on the table to create words with more the points. As the hand progresses, you can bet, call, check or raise the amount of your bet. The person ending with highest points in the hand takes the pot. However, if you can’t find the right word, you can always pretend to and bluff your opponents.
The game allows you to select the table according to the bet you are offering. This prevents amateur players from entering a room of professional players and losing all their money and thereby fairs the game. You can join a room or leave it anytime you want. You can also chat with other players if you want to further heat up the discussion. You can also unlock new achievements by winning the games.
The game is available for free in the app store but is ad supported. The ad-free version is available for $0.99. Also, if you run out of chips, just open the store and buy them for $1.99. You can also customize your look to the opponents and buy new avatars or unlock them.
The game is really awesome and simply a treat for the poker-lovers. The concept is unique and addictive. You just can’t stop going for more once you get indulged in the proceedings. Playing against online players with chatting features gives you the same warmth as playing against your family members in the house. Just sign-in and start filling your pockets.
Pros: real-time gameplay against real players, unique concept, addictive.
Cons: nothing found yet.
We will give this app 9 out of 10 stars.
