Absolute Fun in Absolutely Poker!
Can you beat our Slingo CHADBOT in Absolutely Poker? Come try your poker chops against that mechanical bucket of bolts and see how you stack up!
In Absolutely Poker, you compete in 10 rounds of poker action versus our CHADBOT. As you play, you’ll get 25 cards (1 at a time) to place on a grid. You’ll need to try to build the best poker hands you can with the cards you get.
Meanwhile, CHADBOT will be doing the same. He gets the same cards as you do, in the same order – but he may not place them on his board in the same spot as you place yours. Your goal is to outscore him, so keep an eye on that troublemaker!
In Absolutely Poker, you’ll score points for hands you build diagonally as well as vertically and horizontally. You’ll have to work hard to beat CHADBOT, though – he’s one tough nut, and you’ll have to score big to beat him.
When each round is over, you’ll be compared to see if you beat CHADBOT or not. It goes without saying that the better you score in Absolutely Poker, the more likely it is you’ll win – and you’d better think hard before you place your cards, because you don’t get any points for each round unless you defeat CHADBOT!
So get ready to show our Slingtastic bionic brain who knows poker. He’s no easy mark, but he’ll show you a fun time and keep you coming back for more!
