A long-time fan of Risk, the only thing I found annoying was how long the board game took to play: 3 hours plus. With Lux, that's reduced to about 10 minutes (depending on your settings). Same fun without the drawn-out endings and arguments. What I like most is that you can just dip into the game and play a single round, or do a marathon, or just forget about it for a few months and then dip back in again. A lot of fun without being overly addictive.
The gameplay is almost perfect. It replicates the board game mechanics completely. (The only issue is that there is no way to see which cards I currently have in my hand, which would affect my strategy.)
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is for the silly nag-screen every time you finish a game (to check out the developer's other game).
Look elsewhere. If you like a challenge and to gamble if you win or not go for something else that is actually requires your skill.
The game controls the outcome not you, for example if you have 6 armies and the country you want to attack has 1, you'd expect to win, but the game decides if you conquer it or not. It should be a 1 to 1 army match (if you're moral rating is exactly the same), but for example you can lose 6 armies by attacking a country with just 1. This typically happens if you get off to a good start, so the game decides your doing to well and handicaps you as such.
Ps if you do download it some tips: the red army typically only starts attacking everyone once it's total number is greater than everyone elses.
Green, is most cases, will only start attacking another region once it has conquered the current region it tries to. So keep attacking the green region if you need to hold it off/build up you army numbers before it attacks you. This army plays with better logic than with all the others.
Yellow just attacks anything that has a fewer armies than it does.
Black doesn't do much and has poor logic.
This is my most played app of all time - it has remained on my phone longer than PvZ, Candy Crush, you name them, I've played them.
But, simple as it is, it just works. Great for a quick five minutes, then play again straight away.
