I had a free £10 voucher off them this morning. It's some scrathcard promotion and you use the Ronnie james Dio hand to reveal the win.

Still waiting for the voucher, even though I won. It's Apple' it's a con - what's new. Some things never change, even at Christmas. Eventually found it in the Spam box!

BB, did you get some irritating pop music start playing when you clicked on download game?  I didn't bother in the end, the sound was too annoying...

Actually, yes I did! I even closed the app completely & restarted it, but the annoying song persisted. So I muted my iPad volume & got the game.  excellent!
