    That's actually pretty reasonable but I feel like such the sucker as I'd already spent over $10 trying to get a basic foothold in their Freemium Three Card Monte.

    Yeah changed my review now. Very tempted to buy them. Shame it’s time limited and I hope future tables can be bought.

    Wait, where do I find that purchase option in the app? I can't seem to find it.

    I just updated the app a couple days ago and after that a pop up add appeared in the app. I believe when I bought the 7 tables for 19.99 there was one day and approximately 21 hours left for the promotion.

    Some people are getting the one-time offer, and others aren't. If you get it, it's VERY obvious - a big banner appears on the top of the home screen (the one with the 3 options to play the game). I don't know why they decided to make it a timed offer - mine has already disappeared, as I didn't have enough iTunes credit to buy it. The way the mobile app has been handled has really turned me off of the game.

    This App is getting worse and worse.
    For days I kept grinding the daily challenges, until I had enough parts to promote the first table.

    And what did I get?
    NOTHING!

    Needs another 15 parts to promote it AGAIN and only then I supposedly get to play it.
    It's like they made a bet that they could make the most confusing and greedy app ever and did quite a good job with that.

    If the tables would have been added to Zen Pinball as usual I most likely would have bought them. No way with this trainwreck though.

    I was going to buy the one off price for the tables but i didnt in the end. I'm worried that when the next tables come out it might just be 'freemium' rather than again 'one off chance to buy them all'.

    The table i played on was excellent but i must admit i cant notice a huge difference between this and Pinball Arcade. I mean i can tell the Zen one seemed to flow better but the pinball arcade ones are fine for me, i'm a casual player so i just dip in and out various tables.

    I've found Pinball Arcade to be very realistic. In fact, I had only played Ripley's Believe it or not on my iPhone until I encountered one in real life. I played it on one quarter for over an hour! I've gotten really tired of the Zen tables lately. They're all ramps to ramps.

    I agree PA could use some more tables, but they lost the Williams license to Zen...
