Thread: iPoker

  1. #1
    Default iPoker
    Hey everyone, I wanted to get some opinions on what people would like to see in a Poker game. Once I add splitting functionality to iBlackjack I will start work on iPoker later this month.

    My first thought is to make it a "Video Poker" style game at first, to get the rules down. And then as time goes on add other Poker variants like Texas Hold'em, Omaha Hold'em, etc and "fake" players to the game that those variants require.

    The links don't work, are those native games or web-based games?

    Texas Hold Em' hands down.

    No limit of course.

  11. #10
    No Limit Texas holdem ...but you should make it so you can only refund your account once every 24 hours or something to that sort. The reason why is it makes you want to play more realistic as the Money has some kind of meaning.

    If you can just refill your chips anytime and its No Limit Holdem there would be no reason to not go all in every hand till you build up a bank.

    Figure out a way for it to be a P2P game (like Battleship but Native not browser) and you will be a GOD!!!!!

    Well here's a peak into my thoughts.

    I'm thinking for it that besides the basic game, I'll implement a real online profile where it'll store your "bank" account, you can take out loans, etc. People with the most scores would be listed in a top-25 list, bank loans in this case would count against you. This would also tie into iBlackjack.

    THEN from there I'd add online play to that system, to join rooms, etc.

    All these things will come next year, because obviously it's a lot of work. This year I'll probably just have a real basic "Video Poker" just to start the game out and add functionality and get the main poker logic down then I'll expand it.

    They are web-based, which this thread clearly isn't about so who knows why he posted them.

    No limit texas hold em and video poker are so kute - oh, With iblackjack - I'm thinking in iCasino

  20. #18
    Hey! why dont you combine the games to a game you call something like "iCasino" or "iGambleAlot". When you start the game you can choose between iBlackjack or videopoker and later you add games to the list, making the app the ultimate casino app!! You could make games like roulette and one armed bandits.

    haha scratch lottery tickets would be cool with the interface ..

    I really like your iBlackJack, mostly because its the only game which is really nice looking.

    So.. how about that iCasino app?
