One of the two top consoles of its generation, the Xbox One has sold more than $40 million units since its launch on November 2013.
Boasting a fantastic collection of video game titles of just about every genre, the Microsoft gaming juggernaut has also made sure to cater to gamblers with some superb titles throughout the years.
Since Microsoft develops video games first and foremost, their casino games are quite different and unique when compared to the games developed by actual gambling software companies.
With the Xbox One soon to be succeeded by the Xbox Series X this holiday season, we thought it would be a great time to take a look at some of the best gambling games the Xbox One delivered during its storied 7 year run.
Four Kings Casino & Slots
By far the most complete casino simulator released this past decade, the Four Kings Casino & Slots is every gambler’s dream.
Allowing you to take on an avatar to represent you as you enter this virtual 3D casino, Four Kings takes your gambling to the next level by making it a completely social gaming experience.
Rather than just allow you to play on an empty Blackjack table, Four Kings joins you with online players from around the world as you chat and compete on classic staples, such as Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, Slots, Video Poker, and Bingo.
Boasting some impressive graphics and completely realistic gameplay, Four King might not let you bet real money but there are prizes at stake. With the money you win from your gaming you can buy in-game items and customizations for our avatar, as well as work your way into the VIP section once you are deemed a veritable high roller.
The perfect game to hang out and relax with friends and strangers alike while playing cards, Four Kings even includes a bowling alley you can visit between games when you want to take a break from raiding the house.
GTA – Diamond Casino & Resort
After years of rumours and speculation, The Diamond Casino & Resort finally had its grand opening in Grand Theft Auto Online on July 2019. Completely revolutionizing the game and invigorating the player base, according to the Rockstar newswire, The Diamond is:
“More than just a place to let go of your inhibitions and your sense of the passage of time, The Diamond is the one-stop destination for quality entertainment, high-end living and a range of experiences you won’t find anywhere else.”
Allowing you to convert your GTA$ cash into casino chips, The Diamond offers a fantastic array of gambling games to wager your in-game currency on, including Three Card Poker, Blackjack and Roulette, along with GTA world themed slot machines like Twilight Knife and Impotent Rage.
The Diamond also boasts an Inside Track where you can bet on virtual horse racing, and a Lucky Wheel where you can win prizes including cash, clothes, or even some of the game’s most flashy super cars.
However, The Diamond is not just about gambling! Take part in dozens of story missions protecting the casino, run the venue’s operations or even perform a heist to take the house for all its worth.
You can also experience the high roller lifestyle by purchasing a Master Penthouse, making you a VIP and unlocking all sorts of perks like valet parking, an aircraft concierge on the rooftop helipad, a limo service, access to the VIP lounge, and much more.
One of the most creative and complete poker games that have ever graced the world of console gaming, 505 Studios’ Prominence Poker is the game all future poker games should measure themselves up against.
Featuring stunning visuals, customizable characters and fantastic gameplay, Prominence takes Poker outside of the sterile environment of casinos and back into the seedy underground from which it sprang. Each game takes place in different questionable locations in the corrupt town of Prominence – including the back rooms of biker bars, Laundromats, and more – you will face off against a colourful array of gangsters and crooks as you make your way to the top.
If you have what it takes, you may even reach a final showdown with the mysterious town founder, “The Mayor”.
Prominence Poker can be played against AI or other human players, and is currently Free to Play on Xbox Live.
Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo
One of the most dynamic and original Blackjack games ever made, Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo takes you on a journey to become the best blackjack player in the world!
Choose between twelve characters – that look suspiciously like those in Street Fighter, and enter the most intense blackjack tournament the world has ever seen. Compete against your friends or enter a Single Player combat against AI competitors, and face off in a head to head blackjack battle in which only one can come out victorious. With each character boasting his/her own story-line to unlock, there’s plenty to play for!
Featuring dramatic and exaggerated graphics, various original stages set in casinos throughout the world, post-match mini-scenes and a fantastic soundtrack, Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo takes the world’s most famous banking game to the next level!
If you prefer to play for real cash instead we recommend you to go with one of our reputable and safe casino sites.
Are you ready for a real Vegas style party?
A casino-themed party game collection, Funbox Media’s Vegas Party takes you and your friends to the heart of the strip where you are to compete on a virtual board game featuring 10 different mini-games.
Roll the dice, move up the board and see which challenge awaits you across 17 different environments, as you and your friends pair up against each other in Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Bingo, Slot Machines, Darts, and many more.
Each player will start the game with the same number of chips, and will win or lose chips as they move along in search of the end of the strip. In the end, there can only be one winner!
From VooFoo Studios, the makers of the hugely popular Pure Pool, comes another fantastic table game adaptation: Pure Hold’Em.
Allowing up to 8 players to sit down at the virtual Texas Hold’Em table, Pure Hold’em aims to simply and faithfully reproduce what makes Hold’Em such a fantastic game to play with friends and strangers alike.
Boasting beautiful 3D graphics and highly enjoyable gameplay, Pure Hold’Em allows you to choose between playing cash games or tournaments. Much like other games on this list, if you manage to prove yourself worthy, you can work your way from the regular casino floor and up to the high roller’s suite in the VIP penthouse, where you will face off against other top players such as yourself.
