I am not a texas holdem fan andI like this. Good old fashioned straight poker. If Global leaderboards are added I will buy it. maybe Agon ? Without this features I will get bored in 5 minutes playing poker with only me to beat.

I hope the dev can let me know if global leaderboards are in the plan

This is really great for me, I am sick of texas holdem...................

If you do add Global high scores, they should only count when you cash out and your game is over, I think ...that would give the game some strategy.

Thank you for your interest. Yes, global leader board is one of the features we will add to this and all of our future titles eventually. We have not come to a conclusion yet, but most likely we'll use OpenFeint.

For the next update, there are already a list of features planned and being developed.

We don't just push out app and move on, we'll keep updating them, and promise to deliver the best user's experience possible.

Great, I know that sometimes the complication is to decides what is the high score and I don't think it can be the highest score in a certain game but like I said in the other post ..............should be when you cash in and the game ends.......

I will wait and buy as soon as you have global scores............since it's not for real money, that is a must to make it a challenge and to have a reason to keep playing..............hope this update comes soon

Its not poker its video poker like in the casinos. Personally i would make alot of the features the machines have such as double up, speed, help screen, etc. I play alot of video poker when i visit the casinos and if you made it just like the machines i'm sure you'll get lots of takers.

We're not going to put cash out in the game, as it is not necessary. We're probably going to rank based on statistics, etc. As for achievements, it's going to be there, as we're going to use OpenFeint.

But we have more features and enhancements planned for v1.01, so it will be a feature after the next update. (v1.02)
