In appreciation for BlackBerry users’ loyalty through the recent service outages, RIM has rolled another set of its free premium apps that will continue to be released over the next month and remain free of charge until the end of 2011. This installment features a pair of games from Gameloft: the action shooter N.O.V.A. and Poker game Texas Hold ‘em Poker 2.
We’ve written about Magmic’s Texas Hold’em King Live several times because it’s probably the most advanced BlackBerry game in terms of features and monetization strategy. First, the game uses in-app purchases to allow poker players to buy more chips in order to play. Second, the game features its own in-app advertising that shows ads for other Magmic titles. Third, the app uses Pretzil integration to give users access to a plethora of avatars that can be used in-game. There are more great features such as their social integration, but we feel these three features really set them apart.
Recently, Magmic announced that it has passed over 600,000 active player accounts. This number translates into over 7,000,000 “All-Ins” and over 50,000,000 hands dealt over the last 6 months. These numbers add to the already impressive numbers for the THK franchise. Over the years, Magmic’s THK franchise has over 50 million installs across 5 major platforms. These guys were in the business of huge downloads before Angry Birds came around.
Hit the jump for THK Live’s feature set.
