I think I'll bump my earlier evaluation up to a 4 now.

It is very polished with a great interface but I'm so used to RK game's having multiple layers of depth and strategy and this one just feels kind of two dimensional.

I mean for the most part it just feels make the highest ranking power hands you can to earn as many extra cards as possible...but actually, okay, there is a bit more to it.

To really keep the bonus cards coming you'll need to figure out how to make all 9 combinations as efficiently as possible and how to work the line clearing mechanism. As far as I know all cards dropped off from the bottom go back into the deck so, if being clever, one could really increase their odds of getting the cards they need for a royal flush by working on it on the bottom and using the upper two rows as a means to simply hold another 10 cards not needed for this hand.

See, just to keep in line with my conspiracy theory of this game being closely related to Lines of Gold, notice how Lines of Gold was JUST updated yesterday?

Totally different publishers but perhaps they share some internal coding bits?
