Review: Astraware Casino for iPhone/iPod Touch

IMG_0107

The folks at Astraware have done it again and released another premier game for the iPhone OS.

Astraware Casino features 11 casino style games all under one title.

Included are:  Texas Hold ‘Em  No Limit Poker, Roulette, Baccarat, Video Derby, Texas Hold ‘Em Limit Poker, Blackjack, Video Keno, Craps, 3 Card Poker, Slots and Video Poker.

Read on for my full review of this fun filled game from what I consider to be one of the best iPhone OS application developers.

The game is kind enough to load your wallet with $1,000 in cash to get yourself going.

The settings are fairly straight forward and include the ability to change the game’s sounds.

Instead of the game’s built in sound effects Astraware Casino allows you to play your own iPod music in the background while you gamble.

Each of the 11 games has its own set of instructions.

A very nice feature for those who have been wanting to learn how to play the various casino game but don’t want to do it at their own expense.

I found gameplay to be very smooth in each of the 11 games.  There was little lag at all when waiting for the dealer to make its move.

The stakes start out low for each game but as you progress throughout the stakes increase.

There is also a bank within the game where you can withdrawal additional funds once you go broke or stash away your cash for a rainy day.

The game also gives out virtual prizes that you earn by playing.  You keep these prizes in a suitcase just like you’re on vacation.

You can select each prize in your suitcase to learn more about it.

Priced at the introductory price of only 99 cents Astraware Casino is the casino game you’ve been waiting for.

And best of all you keep your real money in your pocket.

M.S.R.P. – 99 cents

What I like – 11 different games, smooth game play, nice graphics, can listen to own iPod music while playing.

What I don’t like – nothing.
