Casino games haven’t had the greatest traction on consoles, but you’ll be surprised to know that casino games do exist. Traditionally, casino games have mainly been targeted towards mobile devices, but there are plenty of games that are available to enjoy on the PS4 too.
One such example is The Four Kings Casino and Slots (Four Kings), currently available on the PS4 in North America, by Digital Leisure Inc. The Four Kings Casino and Slots is a social MMO that immerses you in a simulated casino experience. The game lets you create a personalised 3D avatar that represents you in the online world, and as you play, you’ll unlock more clothing to further customise your look.
When you enter the casino, you’ll be able to enjoy the most popular casino games like Texas Hold’em Poker, Blackjack, Roulette, Bingo, Instant Keno, Slots and more. Four Kings is a living world that is constantly evolving with new events, clothing, and games.
And if you’re a fan of poker and casinos, you can also enjoy playing video poker at the Red Flush Online Casino, and without the need to download any software beforehand. Searching for “casino” on the PlayStation Store results in plenty of results, including add-on content and bonus chip packs.
Unfortunately, there is a clear gap in the number of casino games available, especially for older consoles like the PS3. And that might come as a disappointment to fans of these games. The Four Kings Casino and Slots is perfect if you are particular about playing at your own pace, while socialising with friends and working you way up to VIP status. And if you prefer, you can always play free video poker online.
The game is primarily single-player, but you can engage with up to 48 players online. It’s online only so a PlayStation Plus subscription is required to play, even if its on your own. The good news is that the game supports Remote Play, so you can also enjoy it via a PlayStation Vita, PC or Mac (with Remote Play application).
There are plenty of add-ons for the game, including PlayStation avatars, that you can use to customise your profile. Or you can give yourself a chip boost by purchasing chip packs. 400,000 chips will set you back $19.99, while the lowest pack of 5,000 chips will cost you $0.99.
PlayStation Plus subscribers get access to a free starter pack, which includes 10,000 chips to play with in the game, and an exclusive Founder’s T-Shirt for your avatar and an in-game badge. Various other starter packs are available too, including the “Double Down” and “Jackpot” packs, each coming with their own benefits. Of the two, the “Jackpot” packs is the most expensive, but comes with a massive 1 million chips and exclusive in-game items.
If you are really into casino games, you can also indulge in a dynamic full HD theme called “Casino: Lady Luck” to grace your PS4 home screen. The theme will sent you back $2.99, but it is sure to add some style to your PS4, along with some eye-candy.
