The word “gambling” may have negative connotations, but some of the games we associate with traditional methods of gambing can actually be pretty fun.
I’m talking about bingo, roulette and poker – and if you enjoy these types of things you don’t actually have to gamble money to enjoy them. There are plenty of free games available on your mobile phone that allow you to play them without ever spending a real penny. Here are some of our favourites.
My Bingo Life
“Bingo game adventures await!”, reads the game description. My Bingo Life is a colourful and cute app where players can indulge in games of bingo at their leisure. You can play one, two or four-card bingo, and while you can’t win money, you can win in-game currency that can be spent on unlocking new avatars, funky bingo dabbers, and more. Aside from traditional bingo games, My Bingo Life also has fairground-themed minigames to enjoy, and cute little creatures that can be collected and cared for. Aww.
Jackpot Party Casino
Over 10 million people have downloaded Jackpot Party Casino, which surely tells you something about it? If you enjoy slot-type games, then this is the app for you. You can make in-game purchases for tokens and credits, but you don’t need them to play, and none of the games offer real money prizes. The game packs in over 100 different slot machines, all with various themes such as Greek mythology, space, animals and more. It aims to simulate all the fun of Vegas with authentic sound effects and visuals, and with so much to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
Zynga Poker – Texas Holdem
If card games of chance are more your thing, then you might want to consider downloading Zynga Poker. There’s been over 50 million downloads of this game so far on Android alone, making it one of the most popular card games on mobile. It’s free to play, and of course it’s all just for fun – there are no real cash prizes to be won. The game allows you to compete in tournaments, facing off against the CPU and real players in order to amass the best in-game score and climb the ranks. If you’re a dab-hand at poker and know your royal flush from your full house, Zynga Poker is worth downloading.
Roulette Royale lets you engage in both European and America table roulette. It’s, of course, free to play – and like the other games on this list there are no real prizes to be won; it’s all just for fun and for the thrill of the game. In Roulette Royale, you can play against real players in a host of multiplayer and tournament game options. Leaderboards and personal stat options allow you to track your progress, too, so you can see yourself climbing the roulette ranks.
