Cheat score A:

At first I thought this guy was just really good, but some quick research and knowledge about this game comes to the conclusion that this is not a possible score regardless of skill.
For those of you familiar with the game "Helicopter", you know that the way the game gets harder is that the path you travel gets narrower, making it progressively harder. The narrowing starts out fast, and slows as your score goes up, but never stops narrowing. Because of the way this works, the path will eventually converge on itself making it impossible to go any further after a certain point where skill no longer matters. However 234538 is FAR past this point, meaning this is not a very good player, this is a cheater.

(Very Possible) Cheat score B:

The other top score by this player is also suspicious. Though not technically impossible to get, there are many reasons to believe this player cheated here to.
1. Because in this game points are bet and lost instead of only increasing, the obvious tactic is to go all in several times and stop when a high score is reached. A score of 2354500 is about 10 times higher than second place, meaning he all-in'd at LEAST 3 times after he had already won, a very chancy and somewhat stupid thing to do when 1st place could be claimed, but instead choosing to risk it.
2. Also the least amount of times he would have had to win to attain this amount is 12, assuming No losses. If we assume the odds of winding a hand of Blackjack to be 50% (It really is lower than this obviously, but 50% is easy to work with), then it would take approximately 4096 tries to do this, (2 to the 12th power). Whereas the second place score, would require 8 strait wins, achieving this in 1 out of 256 tries, a much more reasonable score, especially for someone who did not have to go for a one in 4096 chance.
3. The digits of this score are oddly similar to the other score that was verified to be a cheat score. He may have been careless.
4. The time between both scores is very close, considering how impossibly high both scores are.
