Burning Monkey Casino Question

To the developer of Burning Monkey Casino

first, an amazing game, for an amazing price

I noticed you just had an update release of :

- More Jokes from the comedian!
- Starting money (and Mo' Money button) set to $500.
- Tons of Statistics: Win/Loss Rate, Profit/Loss and more.
- Adjusted house advantage and payouts.
- Fixed problem of music and jokes sometimes not playing.
- Other memory improvements and bug fixes.

my question
are you going to add things, like various types of scratch tickets, maybe a $2, $5, $20. etc

I find that the scratch tickets alone are worth the buck it cost for the game
I get that seem feeling that i get when i play real scratch tickets, the anticipation, and the feeling that i blew all mah money -haha

love all the Freeverse games

thanks

I would like that as well, Now I can't complain too much as the price for this game is super low. But I too am addicted to the scratch offs and would love some different denominations to play with. Man I have always wanted to play a $20 scratch off, just never had $20 to just blow on one, Come on freeverse! make my wish come true! PLEASE...

BTW- Keep up the great games, you are one of my favorite if not, my favorite dev in the app store currently

FYI Freeverse has its own user forum, might be a more likely venue to get in touch with Freeverse devs & reps... Dunno, but thought I'd mention it.

Yea I'm sure they do, I am really only active on these forums and macrumors... I know they frequent these boards and I'm sure they will see this thread sooner or later.... Not that it matters, thought I'd mention that...

One thing the update added that I don't like.... Advertisements

Why would they subject me to such things when I am already paying for their products? I don't mind if they put some advertisement on say an info page in the settings or something, but man, on the main game screen? WTF?

yeah we talked about the advertisements in another thread
the developer put it nicely that those advertisements help keep Freeverse able to develop and deliver the games that they do, for the price of .99

they aren't intrusive, as they are on the loading screen..its not like it nags you every two minutes

so i'm okay with them, as long it keeps freeverse coming out with new apps
of thier existing quality and or better

plus they are hard coded so they you dont have to have a wifi connection to play the games, like other apps that only allow you to play with a wifi connection so that they can stream ads to you

Sorry I missed that thread (link?). I understand why they put advertisements in I'm just wondering why on the game screen of monkey casino? I can only complain, and I apologize, I have a small case of OCD when it comes to
in game advertisements...
