Fixed to not win?
I play a lot of solitaire and decided to try this one. There's definitely something non random about the card deals. I consistently win about 30% of my solitaire games. With this one I'm not likely to win 10%. I don't know if this is intentional or just bad coding. I don't know why it would be intentional unless it makes more money on the free version with ads. Definitely messed up.
After playing this app a lot more I did hit some "wining streaks" where I was consistently winning a much higher percentage. The thought that other developers may be skewing theirs to win more often did cross my mind. Thanks to the developers on this one for the response and insight. I increased my rating in accordance with my extended experience.

Hi Cyrus, thank you for your review! We use the Mersenne Twister (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mersenne_Twister) as our random number generator, and the International Organization for Standardization's template for shuffling (http://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/algorithm/random_shuffle). Streaks of losses (and winning streaks!) are common in truly random solitaire. Microsoft's Klondike Solitaire used pre-verified shuffles for their game, meaning that there was only a set number of limited games, rather than a virtually endless supply of unique games (as with randomized deals). Using pre-verified shuffles would also have the unfortunate consequence of making the app size larger than using a randomization algorithm to generate cards. Solitaire apps that offer winnable deals are using these pre-verified deals (rather than a "better" randomization algorithm than ours). I hope this gives some insight into why our Solitaire seems so challenging, and why we haven't implemented winnable games - although this is something we are keeping on the table.
I have played this Solitaire forever (it seems so anyway) and I love it! It is the absolutely best Solitaire there is. It's straight forward and easy to play. There aren't any distracting graphics and the game flows nicely from one to the next. I’ve tried several solitaire games and this one rises above every other solitaire app I have checked out. If you like glitz and bells and whistles and colorful graphics that hide the cards you need to play then get that kind solitaire app. If you want to play Klondike solitaire or FreeCell for an hour or two choose the Brainium app. You will love how smooth it is to play too!

This is one of the best all around games of Solitaire to play. However, the extremely annoying ads for other games that want you to play their games, is way beyond what it should be allowed to interrupt your Solitaire game. I might have been able to withstand it a little longer, but recently two games of preview have recently appeared that LAST over 20 seconds!! If I want to search for a new game, I’ll do it. Those lasting longer than 5 seconds will make you want to quit playing the beautiful game of Solitaire. We’re bombarded to the point where we spend as much time trying to get rid of the ads as we do playing the game! I’ve just about had enough. And I’m not alone in my thinking. Ugh!!

Hey wormpoop, It looks like you're accidentally using the free version. If you search your iPhone/iPad for "Solitaire" you should see two icons- one with a gold border (the paid version) and one without. Delete the one without a gold border and you'll be good to go! To search your iPhone/iPad just drag your finger downwards anywhere on the home screen, and a search bar will appear at the top. Here’s an Apple Support article demonstrating how to search: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201285
To delete an app just press the icon on your home screen and hold until it starts to wiggle and a little "x" appears in the corner- press the "x" to delete it. Here’s an Apple Support article demonstrating how to delete an app: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207618
It's possible the paid version was accidentally deleted, but you'll be able to download it again for free using the original purchasing Apple ID. Here's the direct link:
