  1. The game features a tutorial if you so desire, and they make it a nice learning curve as you work your way up the casinos. Nice friendly interface that takes minutes to master.
  2. A classy collection of four types of poker as well as blackjack, slots and video poker. The game's only real downfall is requiring multiple cartridges for multiplayer.
  3. Sure it costs a bit more than a deck of cards, but it also provides you with digital opponents, dealers and even a couple of games you cannot play solely with a deck of cards.
  4. At least in WCP, when players get tired of beating up on the poor A.I., they can play some Blackjack or Video Poker to pass the time.
  5. The poker play is solid, but the AI players are predictable. [Feb 2005, p.117]
