[prMac.com] Baltimore, Maryland - PlayScreen, LLC is offering to double a player's Zynga Poker - Texas Hold'em(TM) chips if they make the switch to the Five Star Rated game, Billionaire Poker. Billionaire Poker is available for the iPhone and iPod touch and Billionaire Poker HD is available for the iPad. Both can be downloaded from the Apple App Store. Sporting stunning Retina Display graphics, original social features, and a unique "practice" mode, Billionaire Poker offers mobile gamers a comprehensive - and realistic - poker experience unlike any other on iOS.
Players who download Billionaire Poker can simply email a screen capture of their Zynga Poker game to PlayScreen with their Billionaire Poker account into (screenshot with Player ID or the Player ID itself), and PlayScreen will deposit double their Zynga Poker chips into their new Billionaire Poker accounts.
Billionaire Poker is free to download and play, the latest in a series of poker titles beginning with PlayScreen Poker in 2011. Like the original game, players start with $20,000 in free chips, which can be used to play live against opponents from all over the world. Free chips are awarded daily-or by winning hands, which unlocks achievements.
Billionaire Poker introduces new social features that make the game even more engaging. Players can easily create 'groups' of friends (or players they've previously met in-game) and then use this list to track and compare stats and achievements. Another key feature: Players can now invite friends to join them without having to leave the hand they're in - let alone the table itself. Players who would rather host their own games can now create private tables with friends.
PlayScreen is so convinced that Zynga Poker players will prefer Billionaire Poker, that it's willing to bet that once players give it a try, they will make the switch to Billionaire Poker permanently.
"Many of our players are former Zynga Poker players, they tell us Billionaire Poker is superior" said Sherri Cuono, CTO, PlayScreen, who launched one of the first online poker games in the mid-'90s. "So we're placing a bet that if we double their Zynga Poker chips they will make the switch to Billionaire Poker."
"Not one aspect of Billionaire Poker was overlooked," says William Volk, CCO, PlayScreen, who has been developing games since the 1980s. "We knew we had to go 'all-in' to compete against the likes of Zynga - so we listened to our player base and made sure to include the best social features, graphics, and gameplay money can buy. Players who make the switch, will notice the difference immediately."
