Casino VR Poker (Gear VR)
Intro: Playing poker in VR is like playing poker in real life! You can read each other tells and talk as if everyone is really sitting together in physical space. Play Texas Hold’em Poker with people from all over the world in the most popular social application in VR. Are you a pro poker player or just beginning? There are poker tournaments and cash games designed for all skill levels. You can compete for the leaderboards to get a crown for all to see and take part in daily tournaments with many prizes.
Verdict: While Casino VR Poker on the Gear VR isn’t perfect, it is pretty great. It’s so much more than most other VR poker apps, its social, it’s language universal, its relaxing, fun and dare I say deadly simply to play. With amazing tournaments, surprisingly telling avatar relations and rather nice graphics and poker room environments this is how poker games should be, and in VR it works surprisingly well. Sure, there are some in-app purchases for those of us who suck at poker (myself for sure), but you do get a lot of virtual currency for each real-world pound. If you enjoy a game of poker this game is a must, even if you only enjoy the odd game. At the end of the day, it’s 100% free to try so what is the harm in giving it a go!
