Yawn! Outdated. Bland. I never really understood the pleasure of playing computer poker or slots. You don't get any real winnings and it's not like it's teaching you techniques as it's a computer you're playing with.
Few things can compare with the excitement of going to a casino with a wad of cash in one hand and a rabbit's foot in the other. The lights, the sounds, the drinks and the smoky environment (OK, maybe not that last one) all combine to form an adrenaline-pumping experience. Actually coming out richer than when you started is a difficult proposition, but if you do, you'll feel like a high roller and might even consider giving up your day job to become a fulltime gambler. Thanks to the recent success of poker as a pastime, game developers have jumped aboard the bandwagon and started releasing casino games on various platforms. It's worth playing.
