Casino Games That Every Xbox 360 Console Should Have!

Xbox Casino Games

November 22, 2005 will forever remain to be a significant date in the gaming calendar. The Xbox 360 took the current console generation by storm to become one of the latest gaming crazes worldwide. By capitalizing on some of the weakness displayed by Sony’s PlayStation 2, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 managed to leapfrog its main competition in sales and hype, raking in millions of dollars for the company and changing the course of how we shall forever be playing games.

But genuinely speaking, you can never play hype, this is a fact that every avid player knows and Xbox’s launch lineup was inferior, at best. Thankfully, so much has changed since then, more so with the advancement of technology and the development of online casino portals. There are now plenty of websites to choose from; games that can be played from the different servers straight from our devices such as the IGT free slots – No download and No registration among many other features.

Thanks to this, avid casino players, who also happen to own Xbox consoles can now choose games that best suit their needs to continue playing from the comfort of their homes.

Microsoft’s catalog of casino titles has increased significantly since the first console was sold to include some amazing and entertaining casino games. For the full rundown of some of our top Xbox games, check out the gallery below.

Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays - Texas Hold 'em Update

Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays - Texas Hold 'em Update
Published by: forahobby on Monday, November 27, 2006
Tagged: Gaming, Live Arcade, Xbox 360,

This week on Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays we offer a full-featured update to one of the most popular titles on the service – Texas Hold ‘em.

We’ve listened to our community and as a result, a host of features and improvements have been added to Texas Hold ‘em to speed up game-play, eliminate cheating and ensure proper competition. As a result, the online multi-player leaderboards will be reset to eliminate the inflated scores that currently appear. In a future update in early 2007, we’ll be adding Xbox Live Vision Camera support as well.

The update will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 beginning Wednesday, November 29, after 0800 GMT (1:00 a.m. PST).

Below is a full list of the new features and changes in the Texas Hold ’em update:

- Game-play has been sped up:

- Post the blind and play right away! – Players can now, if they wish, start playing immediately when joining a table by posting the big blind, rather than having to wait for the blind to come to them.
New ‘Away’ mode – Players can now set their status to ‘Away’. Hands will be auto-folded and blinds auto-posted until the player returns.

- New ‘Auto-boot’ mode – Players who continuously let the timer expire (more than three times in a game) will be booted from the table

- Faster overall pacing – Timers and messaging durations have been adjusted to speed up game-play among experienced players, but still allow novice players plenty of time to play.

- Improved blind structure – Initial blinds, as well as blind increases, are now more proportional to table stakes, ensuring more meaningful increases during game-play.

- Matchmaking improvements – Players are no longer matched into games they cannot afford

- Improved interface controls – Improvements to controls, such as increasing/decreasing stake amounts

- Leaderboard display – A player’s full winnings and rank are now properly displayed

- Art and text improvements – Game art and spelling issues have been addressed

- Online exploits addressed – Certain known exploits that enabled cheating have been addressed. As a result, the online multi-player leaderboards will be reset to eliminate inflated scores as a result of these exploits.
