I Win Box: Written iPhone App Review
Reviewed by Marilyn Chau
I Win Box by J.B.J Development is an app pitched as being a fun, easy way to win cash prizes. I Win Box players enjoy spinning a virtual die in order to work their way around a game board. Players can then submit their scores to an international score board for a chance to win weekly cash prizes.
I Win Box features a basic game board and a “click-to-roll” die that players use to test their luck. The goal of I Win Box is to get the high score of the week, and players can choose to play the game as long as they’d like to. However, only high scores that are saved and submitted to the international score boards are eligible for winning real cash prizes. Therefore, players must make the decision to either roll the die again to try to gain more points (and potentially lose all of their points) or to simply submit their scores as they are. The weekly high scorer of I Win Box currently wins $25, but this cash prize could change with time. Therefore, while playing I Win Box does require a bit of decision-making, most of the success gained in this app is based on randomized chance through rolling a virtual die.

Appearance and Layout:
The appearance of I Win Box doesn’t really leave any room for complaints. The graphics are bright and colorful and will remind many players of the graphics seen in traditional board games; others might notice the similarities between I Win Box and the designs in lottery machines. Either way, the simplistic graphics of I Win Box leave no room for confusion of how to play the game. Likewise, navigating through I Win Box is very simply done. First time users are greeted with an entry screen that directs them to either play the game, view current high scores, learn how to play the game, or personalize their app’s options. Setting up an account on I Win Box is also simple to do and must be done in order to be eligible for any of the weekly prizes. Just like the graphics of I Win Box resemble those of a board game, so does the game play and overall layout.
I Win Box is currently a free game through the iOS store, although special in-app purchases can be made if desired. Since playing I Win Box could potentially result in winning actual money, some iOS users might see this app as one worthy of the memory space it would take up on their devices. However, the chance of winning on I Win Box seems to be relatively low, and the randomized game play that doesn’t require much thought and so while it may very well enjoy the popularity of other games of chance such as lotto or slot machines, it may also bore some players. Give it a shot and see what you think.
I Win Box iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
