Peek-A-Boo Poker is more or less just like a regular video poker. The exception is that it is particularly sleazy . This is one of three titles for the adults, which the NES released by Panesian in 1991. But due to their adult nature and also due to the fact that these were not licensed by Nintendo, there was lack in demand and the sales and distribution were not very impressive . All the three titles are amongst the holy grails of NES game packs.

These games are quite thrilling and exciting to play. It was because of NES games, that video game creators got inspired and made similar such games. Though expensive but they let you experience the greatest fun and thrill which no other games can!
