Full House Poker, the Ace of Xbox gambling games
If you couldn’t live without social gaming and gambling, Full House Poker was meant for you. With Xbox Live, you can easily connect to your besties and the fun can begin. This virtual poker game will provide you with gazillion choices: for quick action, you can play a two-player game, and if you have a little time on your hand, you should definitely join a 30-player tournament! The game also offers Texas Heat, with which you can play 30-minute games with thousands of players globally. As said on Metacritic in the reviews, the game is “Incredibly fun and entertaining, but also can be challenging at times. A good game for all fans of poker, but also for the newbie. The best poker game out there by a distance.” Only one question remains: what are you waiting for?
Poker Night 2
This is the video console game that will leave you laughing your socks off. The characters are lively and infinitely funny, the graphics are wonderfully thought out. The uniqueness of this game is that it will make you feel like you’re really sitting in a poker room with a couple of friends, fooling around and playing a nice party of poker. With vivid, light colors, this game is extremely cheerful, so it is a great choice if you had a hard day. It is the perfect game to relax with while also practicing your poker skills. It is not equipped with a multiplayer mode, but in the end, there is no need for one: with such realistic characters, single player mode is ideal.
Fable II Pub Games
This Xbox Live arcade game is principally made up of three pub games: Keystone, Fortune’s Tower and Spinnerbox. Starting off, it is important to know that once you have Fable II, the Pub Games part is entirely free. For the games, this is the gambling software that builds up tension; everyone starts off with low-stakes. Once, however, you have gained XP, you’ll be able to move on to high-stakes games. Each game offers you a different kind of gaming experience: Spinnerbox is more like a slot machine, while Keystone is a Roulette kind of game. Fortune’s Tower is an awesome card game that you’ll cherish once you get the hang of it.
World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions
Well, I could stop right after saying, “WSOP? Enough said.” But I will prove that your high standards will be met. With good-quality graphics and poker pros who we all know, this game will provide you with a glimpse into what playing at the World Series of Poker might be like. Set at the Rio Resort in Las Vegas, the tournament will sweep you off your feet and take you into the world of high-stakes and poker tactics that you never knew existed. This is the video game for true poker fans. Start the game and join the tournament… and, most of all, be prepared to play against pros like Joseph Hachem and Jennifer Tilly.
This simple card games of Hardwood Hearts will definitely leave your heart intact and beating for playing some more. It is so easy to get the hang of what this game is about, we really wish someone would make a mobile gambling app out of it. Here, too, there are multiple gaming modes, with four-player games and the classic Hearts game, Cutthroat. If you’re the creative type, you can also do a bit of customizing: change the background, the style of the cards and tables. You can also communicate to a certain extent with your opponents: feel free to send a Lightning, a Fireball or a Kiss to them. Though, my guess is, you won’t really be in the mood to send kisses to your adversaries; the game is much too tense for that.
Phew, we’re at the end. I know you’re anxious to get to it, so good luck and happy gaming! (Don’t forget that lemonade!)
