Its software is good, but the players do not have much of a choice because there are few buttons on the interface. The sound effects include a harp, jingle bells, and drum beats. Both 2D and 3D graphics are available. The desert color scheme is factual, but the symbols are not exactly animated because they are merely flipping and flickering.
