It’s no secret that poker games are ten-a-penny on mobile devices. Throw a stone into the mass of titles that make up the Java market and you're almost guaranteed to hit a stack of virtual chips.
Even if you narrow your focus to include only the Texas Hold 'em derivation of the timeless card game, you’re still faced with a overwhelming choice of titles all vying to get your spurs under their tables.
With a marketplace this saturated, you have to go the extra mile to make your particular take on the formula stand out from the competition. In the case of Pokermillion: Hold 'em, its oddly aspirational trappings fail to distract from a functional but uninspiring package.
Playable but perfunctory, Pokermillion: Hold 'Em is left treading water in a very crowded pool due to its awkward presentation and lack of flair
