Texas Hold ‘em FREE on Xbox Live Arcade for the Next 48 Hrs only
Just in case you forgot, starting tonight at 1AM Pacific time and for the next 48 hours, you will be able to download Texas Hold ‘em from the Xbox Live Arcade. After that, you have to pay 800 MS points and admit that you were a lame gamer that didn’t check Playfeed often enough.
One of the cooler features in this release is the “Persistent Bankroll”, a system which should keep the betting fairly realistic:
Your virtual bankroll is tied to your gamertag and keeps a running tally of your chip count. If you lose all of your chips in a poker game, you’ll have to play lower stakes buy-in games to make back your stack and earn your way to the big tables.
This should be a great chance for all of those frugal gamers out there to break into the XBLA scene!
