Gambling and console games traditionally have nothing to do with each other apart from the fact that both serve as entertainment. Today more video games are played on mobile devices than on PC and console altogether and the gambling market is also going in the mobile direction as over half of the world’s population own smartphones.
However, console gaming gives a far better visual experience than PC and especially mobile gaming. So what do those people do who want to gamble but don’t want to compromise in graphics and sound? We have discussed with Szilvia Sultés, Hungarian iGaming expert the availability of casino games on consoles like Xbox or PS4. Szilvia has a deep knowledge of the gaming business and you can read more about her here.
Gambling on consoles
If you like gambling, chances are you do it for the chance of winning some real money. The bad news is that at this moment there aren’t many online casinos where you can play using your console. Your best chance is to access online casinos through your console’s in-built web browser. Online casinos, such as 20bet, accept players from Hungary so you might as well try your luck using your console. There have been several very successful Hungarian poker players like András Németh, Márton Czuczor or Norbert Szécsi, all winning over $3 million in prizes.
Rumour has it that in the next few years online casinos’ 3D slots and poker games for Xbox one will be coming to the market so it will be possible to play for real money.
If playing poker and other casino games offline appeals to you try one of these games on your console:
1. The Four Kings Casino & Slots
This is one of the best online games for Xbox One and PlayStation. This virtual 3D casino lets players choose their own avatars and allow a wide range of casino games.
