What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The World Series of Poker: Hold 'Em allows players to compete is simulated poker tournaments with virtual money. The money they win or lose carries over from one play session to the next, so losing big will leave them with virtually nothing to play with the next time they log on. However, players will automatically get $50 added to their wallet for every day they play a game. The app simulates the lush, high-stakes world of Vegas casinos.

Is it any good?
WORLD SERIES OF POKER: HOLD 'EM is a smooth, polished app that poker lovers will adore. Its look and feel are very realistic -- although the live-action opponents (played by actors) in the career mode can sometimes be cheesily over-the-top. It's possible that a game like this could entice kids to check out "real" gambling sites, but the way you can lose all your virtual money -- and have nothing to bet with the next time you play -- could also teach some very important lessons.
