A few players manage to turn $1000 into $2 billions within days of the release of Word Jackpot. This means that I've critically underestimated the money making power of wordsmiths around the world. Therefore, I've decided the up the challenge of the final unlockable word club.

From now on, Grande Palais will only accept words that are at least 4-letter long - this is on top of the lower frequency of vowels. This sounds a bit unfair to late comers to Word Jackpot, but I trust that it will make the game more exciting overall.

1.0.1
====
- Added a 'biggest loss' leaderboard.
- Added the option to quit a round at the expense of bet being forfeited
- Grande Palais now requires a minimum word length of 4 letters.
