Tried it. It's full of "In-App Purchases" for real money. It wants you urgently to connect to some well-known social networks first. If not: You can play as a "guest" (last option).

I choose "play 1:1" (first option) but obviously I was connected with some network or online game service (and not with AI). I made one shot and then waited for more than 60 sec until the opponents makes his shot but it didn't happen.

You also have the option of creating an account with them instead of using Facebook login credentials.

One of the nicest looking pool games with pretty good physics and a fast and easy matchmaking system. Obtaining the more pricey items probably isn't feasible without paying real money, but it's mostly aesthetics. If you just want to play pool and don't care about having a cool-looking cue, no problem.

Sounds like Pool Rebel is still the best.

played one game and I had no waiting time. Don't know if my opponent was a real person but the game was fun and the controls work fine. But I played the sh*t out of Pool Live Tour and this one seems similar so I don't think I will spent much time with it.

Me and my girlfriend sunk a ridiculous amount of time into this game. Not sure if it's the "Rolls Royce of pool games" but I enjoy it and it is free so BOOM!
