Griffin Technology Unveils Poker Game App for iPhone 3G
Nashville, TN - July 10, 2008 - Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod and iPhone, today announced the availability of its first game for iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPod touch. The Vegas-style video poker game is called 5 Card Touch, and will be offered exclusively on Apple's App Store website.
5 Card Touch is the first in a series of applications that Griffin will be rolling out for the App Store. Griffin apps will be available for download directly onto iPhone -- giving users the convenience of accessing the game at all times, even when iPhone is in Airplane Mode.
"We are thrilled to roll out an even greater selection of offerings for iPhone and iPod owners," said Paul Griffin, founder of Griffin Technology. "Now Apple fans can get everything they need for their iPhone and iPod collection from Griffin, including cases and accessories, interactive games and more."
The fast-moving video poker app stakes the player at $1000 in virtual money, and keeps track of winnings, hands played and won, and so on. The app works just the way you'd expect a poker game to work: To play, bet between one and five credits, then hit Deal to begin a new hand. On your touchscreen, tap the cards to be discarded, and tap "draw" to get new cards. The amount won is determined by the amount bet and the final poker hand dealt, with a Royal Flush earning the most points and Jacks or Better winning the minimum prize.
- Easy to learn video poker; Jacks or Better to win
- Smooth animation and graphics
- Keeps track of your winnings and hands played, won and lost
- An iTunes App Store exclusive
