Fun game-some issues

Long time linked in member

This combination of Scrabble and Texas Hold 'Em is a lot of fun. The achievements are challenging, but not overly so.

A couple of issues are the dictionary used. Some very common words get rejected. Also, occasionally, there will be multiple valid words from players, but the game doesn't designate a winner and takes everyone's money. I've also had the game lock up fairly often.

For these issues, I give the game 4 stars. Still playing!



Word Poker Live Free is a little challenging to learn, but you’ll be raking in the dough in no time once you get the hang of the game. Even if you’re not familiar with the rules of poker, the game is easy to play. This is the first game of its kind that I’ve seen for any device, and I applaud the developers at Graphite Fusion for coming up with such a unique idea for a game.

From the main screen you can choose your table settings and join a game, check out achievements you’ve earned, manage your account, visit the store, and access game settings. When you start the game you’re allowed a certain amount of money. Once you join a game you start with three letters as your hand. As the hand progresses you can either fold, bet, check, raise, or call. Whoever has the highest scoring word gets the majority of the pot. If there is a tie between players, the winnings are divided equally.

Prior knowledge of how to play poker is helpful, but not necessary. Instead of creating pairs and flushes, you’re simply trying to create the highest scoring word.

Good way to pass time


Good practice for coming up with words you don't use often.
