The placement of the banner ads does diminish enjoyment of the game somewhat, as it can block your view of the game board. It also blocks your view of items and text in the store! However, you can go Pro to get rid of the banner ads and unlock double chips.
Other than the Blackjack and a single match-3 game mode, additional game modes can be unlocked with extended play. The 3 additional game modes can be unlocked by making Level 3, 6, and 9 teas.
You can use the sliding bar before each game to customize the level of difficulty. The sliding bar goes from 0.1 to 9.9, with qualitative descriptors like “effortless” or “extra spicy” to explain your settings. The higher the difficulty, the more chips and points you will earn.
