Although Zynga debuted Texas HoldEm Poker more than five years ago, it remains one of the company’s flagship games to this day. You may not be able to win actual money, but you can still join any table — from casual to tournament style — and face off with up to nine players from around the globe in what Zynga claims is the world’s largest free-to-play online poker game. Also, feel free to spend real money on gifts for friends and decorating your table seat.
Though nothing like the Hangover, myVEGAS is the best way to prepare for visiting everyone’s favorite, sinful city without setting foot out the door. Not only does the slot title allow gamers to get in some practice on a varying mix of machines, but it also awards real-life prizes users can redeem in Vegas. Although it may take a fair amount of time — and winning — to earn said prizes, users can cash in their virtual chips for free concert tickets, drink specials, and overnight suites at the Bellagio, MGM Grand, and New-York New-York among others. It may be a stereotypical as far as casino games go, but the real-like perks are hard to pass up.
Bingo Bash isn’t the kind your grandmother tackles with her friends on a Sunday afternoon. It’s the No. 1, self-proclaimed mobile bingo title in the world, shuffling players through different worlds adorned with penguins, sphinx, and Jack Frost among a slew of other nontraditional characters. The gameplay functions akin to regular bingo, with an announcer calling out specific tiles on which you hope you’ve placed a card, but random rewards and experience points add a welcome twist to the title. Players don’t directly compete with friends, but in typical social media fashion, they can send friends power-ups and gifts to aid them in their struggle for the next level. Moreover, players can even set up multiple boards if one proves too tedious, offering a frantic opportunity for failure or success.
