In times of need, and when entertainment facilities across the globe have shut down, it’s the gaming scene that comes to the fore. And with the power of Xbox One you can get your casino fix with many different games. In our eyes, the following are, hands-down, the very best of the best.
Should you wish to be able to play pokies for real money in Australia, or anywhere around the globe in fact, then there are multiple options on the table, with our favourites being the following…
Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition
Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition on Xbox One comes via the teams at both Headup Games and Stage Clear Studios. And where Headup have previously delved into many genres – some of their finest work is found with the likes of Bridge Constructor Portal – this is a game that lets you get a casino fix without needing to leave the house.
As you would expect from the name of the game, Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition invites you to join the best Blackjack tournament the world has ever known, as you get the opportunity to pit your skills against a wide range of card-playing foes.
Set in Las Vegas – the home of the casino – it’ll be up to you to play the right hands at the correct time in order to take down some of the fanciest card sharks of all time. With fun visuals and a background story that will have you becoming fully immersed in the entire experience, Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition should be your first port of call in the virtual casino world.
Pure Hold’em is one of our very favourite hold’em experiences available on Xbox One for one main reason – it’s just so beautiful to look at.
Cutting edge visuals are the name of the game here and what VooFoo Studios created on the back of the equally stunning Pure Pool are a sight to behold. But it’s not just about looking good though – Pure Hold’em on Xbox One provides a stunning hold’em experience, one that is very nearly up there with the real world equivalent.
If you wish to spend some time dropping bombs on the card scene, then Pure Hold’em will most certainly sort you out.
Prominence Poker most certainly takes a leaf out of the Super Blackjack Battle books to deliver a seedy old world full of interest and intrigue. It’s a world that tells of an underground gambling scene, one that is filled to the brim with dodgy dealings and crooked croupiers. But it is a world in which you can make a difference.
Taking the hustle into Prominence you’ll be left to show off your skills again, this time against a wide range of colourful characters out for a quick buck or two. By building rep, taking down bigger fish by the second, you’ll get to prove just what is required to be a successful player in the world of Prominence Poker.
And if you don’t, then well, you’ll be dragged down with the rest of them.
So there we have it – you don’t even need to leave the house in order to get your casino kicks. No matter which of these options you take up, you can be sure they’ll provide some of the very highest quality gaming experiences on Xbox One.
