Microsoft delivers its own batch of gambling paraphernalia.
Microsoft Casino attempts to deliver an entire “casino experience,” rather than just the games by themselves. Three major casinos are featured – Treasure Island, Mirage and the Bellagio. As your path to riches commences, you’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 bird’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, you’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 you’re forced to listen to their annoying, nonsensical banter every so often. Luckily, there’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.
