Who hasn’t ever gambled in his life? Who hasn’t ever seen a gambling place, even in a movie theater? Although it is not a very recurrent topic in the world of electronic leisure, if we document ourselves a little we can find many video games set in casinos.
We are going to review some of them since the list is quite extensive and we cannot mention them all, but we can mention the most important ones. And if after reading the article you feel like playing a little, you can always have some fun making a free spins with no deposit bet through this website.
When thinking about video games set in casinos, the first title that comes to mind, because of its theme and popularity, is the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) saga, by Rockstar Games, which we have considered part of the most influential games in history. Throughout its more than 8 titles there are numerous occasions in which we have seen this type of premises, and we can even visit them and carry out some activity. We can say that they are a well-known part of these games, and their users are used to seeing them.
There is another title that will inexorably take us to these scenarios since it is set in a futuristic version of the world’s most famous casino-related city. We’re talking about Fallout: New Vegas. This title is a video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and distributed by Bethesda Softworks and is set in a post-apocalyptic future, the year 2281, after a Great War that almost devastated the planet. In this game we can find casinos like Atomic Wrangler, Vikki and Vance’s Casino or places like Gomorrah.
Other games that include the word Vegas in their title, such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas or Vegas Party, two video games with very different themes but with a common factor, casinos. The first one is a third person shooter developed by Ubisoft, in which a Rainbow team is sent to retrieve Las Vegas, while the second one is a casino simulator in which no real money is used and you can find games like slot machines, roulette and more.
The Polish game The Witcher III, based on the homonymous novels that are very famous in their country, and developed by the CD studio Projekt Red, has some missions that take place in casinos, which become very important in the later DLCs that appeared from the game. This is a secondary mission that takes place in clandestine places in the city of Novigrado, where you can even play cards, a game called Gwent, which has come to see the light in the real world as a result of its fame in the video game.
Practically all the games related to some kind of mafia are somehow related to casinos, and in many of them we can visit these places. Titles such as the Mafia saga, the Yakuza saga, the Sleeping Dogs, The Getaway or even the Saint Row saga (which although not 100% mafia are bands that want to control the city) have these locations.
We have many more video game titles set in casinos to share with you but space is limited. If you are interested in the subject leave us some comments and we will write another article to complete the information or to expand some of the titles that have attracted your attention.
Two video games with casinos and gambling
1. World Series Of Poker: The Official Game
Obviously the most important poker tournament in the world couldn’t stay without having its own video game. You might wonder what the point of this is, since you can participate in the WSOP over the Internet without any problem. The difference is that in this game you have the possibility to learn everything about the contest, but without betting any of your money.
Developed by Activision, it was released in 2005 for almost all consoles available at that time: Playstation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Playstation Portable and it is also available for Windows.
2. Red Dead Redemption – Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3
Released in 2010, this video game quickly became one of the most popular games of its kind at the time and even received the Spike Video Game Award for Best Game of the Year and others for Best Original Soundtrack, Best Theme in a Video Game and Best Original Game.
In Red Dead Redemption you must complete a mission to save the family of the main character (which is you). However, in the process you have the opportunity to have a good game of Texas Hold’em poker to win bets and get more money that you can use to buy other things.
Online casino applications have become a great option
The gaming sector is one that is usually highly regulated from different points of view, so it is very difficult for these casinos to offer their applications directly in mobile virtual stores (Google Play or App Store). Therefore, many casinos require you to enter their website and download the app directly there.
Therefore, many casinos require you to enter their website and download the app directly there; something that, admittedly, is not to the liking of many players.
Due to these difficulties, some casinos have not bothered to create apps, but to offer a mobile version of their website that is more functional, attractive and offers the same services.
What is the mobile version? It is nothing more than the casino website, but viewed from your phone or tablet; to enter it you will need to use the browser.
Not surprisingly, as the population is more connected from their mobile phones, the more important it is to be able to access the casino with their devices.
This new technological revolution is just beginning, and casinos will have to work hard to keep up with their applications, so that they can attract more users to their platforms.
The challenges are many, so it will undoubtedly be a very interesting topic to follow in the future.
