Time to Play Some Zynga Poker

Zynga Poker is a popular online Texas hold ‘em game that many people play. Zynga Poker is a multiplayer game. You play Texas hold ‘em with up to nine players.

I am going to explain my thoughts on this game by reviewing it.

Zynga Poker Review Information

I have played Zynga Poker for over five years, and it is one of the games I have played the longest.

I have played this game on many platforms. I currently play the game on my desktop computer and LG V20 Android phone.

How the Game Controls Feels

The controls are nice. I never feel like I am fighting the controls to make a certain bet size. Seeing how you bet a lot, this is a huge plus.

There is only one tiny thing that is a bit odd to me. I wish you can go all in instead of only matching the other person's chip stack.

I guess the result is the same, but it feels more satisfying to put all my chips in.

Ring Game in Zynga Poker

There are five and nine person tables, and there are normal and fast speed tables.The ring games work as expected.

You can auto rebuy back into games. You cannot auto top off your chip stack. You can sit up and sit back down to top off your stack, though.

I suppose being able to do this is better than nothing.

Sit and Goes in Zynga Poker

There are multiple sit and go buy ins. There are also five, and nine player sit and go tables.

Like most traditional sit and goes you get paid for coming in first and second place. Three people win chips at full ring sit and go tables.

The game also has Spin and Go events. These are much faster tournaments, and only the player who comes in first place wins chips.

Watch Collection

Recently Zynga added watches to the game. You collect these watches by playing poker and earning chips in a collection.

There are currently five watches to collect, and each watch gives you free chips.

One of my oldest complaints is that Zynga Poker has nothing to earn or collect long term.

This is a huge step in the right collection, and I am very excited to collect the watches.

The Game Has Challenges

Every day you get challenges to complete. If you complete all the daily challenges, there are bonus challenges. You also get one weekly challenge.

The challenges are a bit too hard. The game expects to play very high stakes compared to the total amount of chips you have. I ignore the challenges.

About Poker Leagues and the Rewards Center

Every week a poker league runs. You get rewards depending on your position at the end of the week.

I love playing in these leagues as they can be very competitive. It is fun to see how high of a league I can get to.

You can use the tickets you earn from challenges and leagues in the Rewards Center.

The rewards you get are small, but it is fun to collect them.

Events in Zynga Poker

There are events in Zynga Poker sometimes as well. The event I see the most is Mega Fast Cash.

To keep up with current events, be sure to check out the Zynga Poker Facebook page and Twitter page.

How the Game Looks and Sounds

The game looks nice. The cards are nice and big and easy to see, and the animations are fluid and do to feel slow.

The game sounds OK. Nothing spectacular here but nothing terrible either. I feel neutral about how this game sounds.

There are alert sounds when it is your turn to act. There is a clapping sound when people win hands. It gets cheesy after hearing it so many times.

Things in Zynga Poker Are Annoying

Zynga Poker is a game with few annoyances. The biggest thing I can point out is the notification spam. The game sends notifications for free chips every once and a while.

But the game also sends notifications for random things as well. The game send notifications a bit too much.

Other than that, there is not much else to point out. The game does show a few popups when you first start the game.

Features I Wish the Game Had

There are a few features I wish this game would have. It would be nice to sit out for a few minutes. Sometimes I need to take a tiny break.

I also wish the game had a four color deck option. It is a tiny feature I love in games.

Also, while you can stand up and sit down to top off your stack, it would be nice to have an auto top off option.

My Overall Thoughts on Zynga Poker

Overall, Zynga Poker is a great poker game. It is not my favorite, but it is a game I play often.

I would recommend Zynga Poker to people who are looking for an online poker game to play. Zynga Poker is one of the biggest poker games online, and it works well.
