The game was released a long time ago. It's a sale. But it never had an own thread on TA.

There is a lite, just try it yourself:

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

DL'd the lite. The game seems fun. I've got a serious lack of poker games on my iPhone so I may grab this.

As far as poker goes, for $2, is there abetter option that I should check out before pulling the trigger on this one?

Imagine Poker 2 is pretty fun. You can play as different characters as you unlock them which is a nice feature.

I think I'm going to give this one a try as well, looks promising.
