Microsoft delivers its own batch of gambling paraphernalia.
Microsoft Casino attempts to deliver an entire â€œcasino experience,â€ rather than just the games by themselves. Three major casinos are featured – Treasure Island, Mirage and the Bellagio. As your path to riches commences, youâ€™re given the option of choosing your appearance, right down to creating your own custom face, and are handed five grand as starting money. Upon entering each casino, you get a birdâ€™s-eye view of the playing floor and have all the important games to choose from – Blackjack, Craps, several variants of Poker, Roulette, Slots and much more. As a nice extra, each game has a tutorial explaining its workings.
At nearly every game table, youâ€™ll be playing alongside a variety of competitors with a distinct look, attitude, and style of playing. While this diversity can add an interesting element to gameplay, it also means youâ€™re forced to listen to their annoying, nonsensical banter every so often. Luckily, thereâ€™s an option to turn that off. While Microsoft’s Casino might not be fundamentally different from any of Hoyle’s iterations, and will undoubtedly be branded as a simple clone, it is nonetheless a pretty good gaming package for gambling aficionados to enjoy.
