Summary: It could be faster when it deals the cards and when others bid back and forth, but it was really useful when I was trying to learn the basics on games I wanted to play on a trip to Vegas. It did help me out a lot. I lost my original copy so this is to replace the one I lost. I enjoy it.
Summary: This is the only DS casino-type game I've tried and I use it mainly for blackjack and video poker. Both games are fine for me. (I am an occasional low-stakes casino gambler.) It's too bad you have to play hold'em poker to earn enough to open the video poker, but it's fairly easy to accumulate money. In fact, I would not recommend this game if you are a poker enthusiast. If I can win in a hurry, it's too easy to outsmart the opponents.
Summary: Sega Casino really was a pleasant surprise. There are so many bad casino games out there that I have played, I didn't have really high hopes for this game. But I was delighted when I started playing. I have just recently returned from visiting Las Vegas for the first time, and since I loved Vegas so much I needed to get a casino game. I like playing blackjack, roulette, and texas hold em' and this game does all of them very well.
Summary: I guess I didn't read all the reviews so thought I could play Keno on this game. No way! You have to unlock a kazillion points - which are almost impossible to get - in order to unlock the next levels which include Keno. There is no way I'm capable of that. So. since I don't play cards that well... this was a terrible game for me to buy. ONLY 4 GAMES ARE IN THE BEGINNING PART.. and you have to unlock everything. What a terrible concept and not much fun.
Summary: This game does fine replicating the casino classics. The downside is you have to unlock some of the games by reaching some achievement levels. It kind of bothered me because the game I wanted was locked and I did not want to sit and play this thing until I could get to it.
Summary: I only play texas hold em on this game although I've unlocked everything. The AI is pretty stupid but it allows me to brush up on some basics while I'm on the go. Umm... I've tried the other games and they're alright but didn't really hold my interest. The graphics are serviceable if not all that pretty. The video poker interface is really weird. Roulette is only fun in very small doses. Black Jack is just you and the dealer so it's not all that fun.
Summary: This is a great game and the Texas Hold'em Poker is a lot of fun to play. It's not a big deal that some of the games are locked, if you are losing, you can just turn off the system and restart, and then you can only elect to save once you've earned enough money to unlock the more advanced levels.
Summary: Sega Casino for the Nintendo DS is the kind of casino game that will satisfy anyone who loves casino games for the games themselves. If you are the kind of player who needs a walk-through 3D casino, a face maker, and other non-related extras, you will be severely disappointed. This game is all casino with little of anything else. Game play is excellent.
