With so many casino apps for iPhones and iPads to choose from these days, one can be forgiven for being rather confused as to which ones are worthwhile and which ones are a complete waste of time. If an app is free then all you’ve lost is your time, but when you’re paying for it you’d like a little assurance that you’re going to be receiving your money’s worth. Thankfully when it comes to casino games, many of the apps are free, so you won’t be out of pocket should you find the app disappointing.
One of the most popular casino games at the moment is Texas Hold’em Poker. This game, which is a variation of traditional poker, consists of two cards being dealt face down to each player (known as “hole” cards) followed by the dealer placing 5 community facing up in the centre of the table. The players attempt to make up their best possible hand from both their “hole” cards and the communal cards on the table. The player with the best five-card hand wins the pot.
The one thing that has remained constant since the very first iPhone came out is that Texas Hold’em Poker is a very popular app. When the iPad came along it became even more so, as bigger screens improved the overall gaming experience which in turn gave rise to the increased popularity of casinos such as Jack Gold Mobile Casino. Suddenly, people who had never considered gambling before were trying their hand at poker and slots, and found themselves enjoying a variety of games which they had never had easy access to in the past.
When it comes to free apps, World Poker Tour® Hold ‘Em Showdown is one of the better ones to try. Described as ‘highly polished’, this app allows you to compete against up to 8 others via GameCenter. The graphics are beautiful and the fact that you can even create your own intricately customized avatar is a bonus. As far as poker apps are concerned, this one will make a fantastic first impression.
On the more comedic side, Dogs Playing Poker provides a light-hearted environment for poker fans and dog lovers alike. This fun-filled game will leave you smiling from ear to ear – especially after you’ve chose your given player from a selection of 19 different dogs, and even a fox and a walrus.
VIP Poker HD is another free app which allows you to play against thousands of players across the globe. The iPad’s wide screen enhances the gaming experience, making you feel like you’re playing in an actual Las Vegas casino.
Depending on what you’re looking for you’re almost certain to find a casino app that meets with your approval. With new apps being developed all the time, it is highly unlikely that you’ll ever run out of games to try – the only thing you’ll run out of is time to try them.
