There are many video games out there which contain casinos. However, while most video games do not permit you to wager and win real money, many do still offer an exhilarating casino gaming experience using in-game cash. If you are an avid gamer and want to ply your trade and hone your skills playing casino games inside a fictional world, where are the best casinos to play at? Here is our look at the five best casinos in video games.
Fallout: New Vegas
The post-apocalyptic Fallout series travels to Las Vegas in this game. Of course, being set in 2281, everything is very futuristic. Nonetheless, gambling is available in six different locations in the game, most notably in the Atomic Wrangler Casino, Sierra Madre Casino, The Tops, Ultra-Luxe, Vikki and Vance Casino and Gomorrah. Expect to find blackjack, roulette, and slots games. Craps tables, while present, cannot be played and only adorn the casinos for decorative purposes.
Grand Theft Auto Online
For years, the casino in Grand Theft Auto Online had remained closed. An irritating “Opening Soon” sign prevented players from going inside. But now, GTA players can convert their GTA cash into chips and play a variety of games at the Diamond Casino & Resort in Los Santos. Playable games include slots such as Impotent Rage and Twilight Knife, virtual horse races, roulette, blackjack, and three-card poker. Lucky wheels can also be played, which could result in chips, cash, clothing, or supercars being won for use in the game.
Red Dead Redemption
Both Red Dead Redemption and its recent successor, Red Dead Redemption 2 have gambling features woven into their gameplay. While the Wild West series permitted a spot of poker in the original release, the sequel sees a host of casino games playable in its Blackwater Hotel Casino. Poker is again playable, alongside blackjack and Liars Dice. You can even wager on arm-wrestling, Five Finger Fillet, and horseshoes in this game. Just do not get caught cheating (and you can cheat) or you are in for a duel to the death.
The Four King Casino & Slots
The game was released for the PS4 and offers a 3D social casino experience, with games including Texas Hold’em poker, slots, blackjack, craps, roulette, and many more on both low and high-limit tables. Tournaments and competitions are the name of the game here, with the Four Kings Casino offering exclusive in-game rewards for the best players.
Caesars Palace 2000
If you like retro gaming, then the PlayStation 1, Dreamcast, and PC hit, Caesars Palace 2000 is about as good as it gets. Naturally, this game is based on Caesars Palace Casino and includes eleven popular casino games spanning six card games, keno, video poker, slots, and more, all with artificial funds, of course.
Some of these games may be dated and simple, but they make for the ideal training grounds for players who are considering wagering real money online in the future. If having a crack at the Bonanza Slot and other leading games speaks to you, why not practice, and play for free on these games first?
