Magmic is once again pushing the BlackBerry envelope with some new features in their classic Texas Hold’em King title. They have added the concept of private tables to play with friends anywhere in the world. You can either add people to your table by tapping the phones together using NFC or you can invite them over BBM. The only real downside is that Magmic has decided to limit this feature to VIP players only.
This is how they stated it:
- You can invite up to 5 friends to your table
- Tables will become public after 10 minutes so you and your friends can play against the rest of the world!
- VIPs only! In order to reserve a private table you must be a highroller. Only casino members with 100k chips or more can get their own table!
I am not sure why they made those restrictions but hopefully they drop them in the future. Especially the one where the table goes public after 10 minutes.
