15-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook includes Blackjack to Texas Casino Poker & more; plus virtual casino betting

15-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook is a multifaceted gambling app that’s free to download and play. It’s all about fun rather than actual risk, but I’m sure it has more than enough mini-games to keep most players interested.
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Generous in-app credit to play with!
- 15 different games to play!
- Simple and responsive gameplay!
- Rules and help are essentially outsourced to different web links.
- UI might feel a little simplistic for some users.
15-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook is an essential Swiss-Army-Knife of card and casino games. Recently updated to include a Sportsbook which lets you place in-app bets on US sports (NFL, MLB and NBA), the game has a great deal going for it and a fun way to gamble without financial risk.
I’m not a gambler, but I really enjoy card games and 15-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook has plenty of those, including: Three Card Poker, Texas Casino Poker, Jacks or Better Video Poker, Deuces Wild Video Poker, Blackjack, Count Blackjack, Blackjack Plus, Switch Blackjack, Faceup Blackjack and Caribbean Stud. There’s more games here than I might ever learn to play, so it’s brilliant to see such a wealth of options available. I’ve had no problem at all with the card games and they’ve all worked well through my tests, although many Google Play Store users report mis-counting in Blackjack.
In addition to the card games, this games lets you try your hand at Roulette. It’s simple and intuitive to place chips and spin the roulette, which includes a realistic sound effect. You can also play on the slots, which while featuring a relatively simple interface, is responsive and works very well. Finally, and one of the latest additions to the game, is the inclusion of a Sportsbook. This provides virtual sports betting and leaderboards for the big three U.S. sports; basketball, U.S. football and baseball. I kind of wished these sports had more variety, but I guess among U.S. gamers these will be popular.
The variety you undoubtedly get with the game is a huge plus, there’s pretty much something for everyone here and each game works really well. I think compared to some other casino games the graphics are a little on the basic side, but the structure of the game is very stable. Another disappointment are the instructions. None of these are localised, all send you to web links which give you generic gaming instructions rather than some that apply specifically to the game. While rules might be universal, in-game play would be complimented better by clearer instruction for beginners.
This aside, it’s a great little app containing a wealth of gaming options. If you want the thrill of the casino on your Android device, you cannot go far wrong with 15-in-1 Casino & Sportsbook.

If you’re a fan of card and casino games, you’ll be certain to find something you like here. The graphics might not be as slick as Zynga Poker or Texas Hold’em Poker, but there are far more gaming options here. I think too, because it’s virtual betting, you can really go to town with your bets with little risk.
These kind of games are very addictive and gambling is a growing industry as a result. The games here are fun and, if you’re already a fan of such pursuits, you’ll come back often.
The graphics are a little basic if you’re comparing them to those in other Android games. That said, the visuals are clear, colourful and responsive. There are certainly far worse examples in the Google Play Store.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
Sounds are quite basic; just a smattering of appropriate sound effects here and there. I guess the sound in games like this are never going to be immersive enough to kid you that you’re actually in a casino, but they compliment the gameplay well regardless.
