Slotomania. Hit it Rich! DoubleDown. Zynga Casino. Big Fish Casino. Even if you don’t play them, you surely have someone in your entourage – or your Facebook friend list – who does. The social casino industry has grown a lot in the last few years. Social casinos are routinely found among the most downloaded, most played, and most lucrative games in various app stores. But they have a limited game variety, and they are often filled with ads and in-app purchase incentives that can drive some players mad (yours truly included). After getting tired of them, I started to look for an alternative, which would give me better quality games without so many annoying ads. And even if I wasn’t hoping to find one, I did – and in the most surprising place, you could think of.
Player, meet Royal Vegas
Slot machines, blackjack, video poker or even bingo – these are all games you can play at an online casino with real money. This I did know. What I didn’t was the fact that all mobile casinos have a completely free option – and by completely free I mean that there are no ads, no in-app purchases, nothing but games. And a lot of them, too.
The Royal Vegas Casino offers its newbie players the possibility to test drive its software free of charge, without risking their own cash. The game library available in this “practice mode” is the same as if you would be playing “for real”. The only thing that’s not real is the money you play. And, of course, the money you win.
The Royal Vegas Casino puts its free practice mode at your disposal on all its platforms: download, desktop browser, and mobile.
How real money gaming beats social casinos
Just how much bigger a real money casino’s game library is compared to those offered by social casinos? First, it’s the game variety. On mobile, the Royal Vegas Casino has a bit over 100 titles for you to try – over 80 slots, plus table games and video poker. But on a desktop browser you can play over 300 different games, and if you download its free software suite, you’ll gain access to over twice as many. What social casino can beat that?
Next, it’s the quality of the games themselves. The Royal Vegas Casino has several award-winning titles, including several inspired by blockbuster movies (Terminator II, Jurassic Park, The Dark Knight Rises, to name just a few), TV shows (like Battlestar Galactica), even video games (like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider). And pretty much everything else you might be looking for.
Last, but not least, if you run out of credits to play with, you can simply head over to the casino’s “practice” cashier and add more to your balance. No waiting for friends to send you some, or paying money to top up your account…
