Xbox 360 Games to Scratch a Gambling Itch

Xbox 360 Games to Scratch a Gambling Itch
Published by: BigJ on Friday, January 19, 2024
Tagged: Gaming,

We live in a time where video games, especially those available on game consoles, are more complex than ever. Instead of titles where you blindly stick to the directions you're given, many games today allow you to explore massive worlds, complete side missions, and/or play so-called mini-games. This way, you can experience new things and increase entertainment.

Xbox 360 Games to Scratch a Gambling Itch

With the help of the mini-games we mentioned, which are also available to players using Xbox 360, you can engage in various activities, including gambling. So, if you have a gambling itch, this option can be beneficial.

Of course, you can always choose online gambling for real money on the best casino sites, however, in the meantime, playing Xbox 360 games with gambling activities can help you raise your game to a higher level before you delve into popular casino options, such as blackjack, baccarat, poker, slots, and more. After all, casino-style Xbox games curate a low-stakes, no-risk environment to hone your gambling skills – understanding probabilities, betting strategies, and bankroll management.

In this guide we have prepared for you, we will look at some great games that fall into this category. Let's roll!

Saints Row 2 for Xbox 360

Saints Row 2



Even though it was released in 2008, this action-adventure game by THQ and Volition is still popular among Xbox 360 players. Saints Row 2, as you probably guessed, is the second installment in the iconic Saints Row series. A lot of action is promised to players. Still, one of the most interesting things about this game is the opportunity to get involved in various gambling activities.

So, when you play Saints Row 2, you can visit the Crash Landing nightclub in Huntersfield, the Poseidon's Palace in Stilwater Boardwalk, or the Student Union HQ in Stilwater University and play poker and blackjack.

CATAN Console Edition Launches Next Week On Xbox & PlayStation

CATAN Console Edition Launches Next Week On Xbox & PlayStation
Published by: BigJ on Monday, February 20, 2023
Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

Dovetail Games revealed that CATAN: Console Edition will be released on Tuesday, February 28th, on Xbox Series, Xbox One, PlayStaton 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles. Pre-orders are available now, with early access beginning on February 23rd for those who pre-order.

CATAN Console Edition Arrives On Xbox & PlayStation Consoles In February

When CATAN – Console Edition, developed by Nomad Games and published by Dovetail Games, was announced last year, gameplay and strategy were key elements in making Console Edition authentic, with a dynamic single-player AI and the ability to track resources on your smartphone both highlighted as core features.

A host of other features are included, relating to single-play, couch multiplayer and online multi-player. The dynamic AI comes in the form of individual AI characters that very much look the part within CATAN’s distinctive visual style. They’ll have their own gameplay strategies, some are more willing to trade, some less and some play more proactively than the others - just as some do playing the physical board game!

Couch multiplayer forms part of the release, with only one console required to play with up to four friends around the TV and the ability to track resources on a smartphone even without the need to install an app. Offering enjoyment with friends and family has been a key part of developing the game for console. Cross-play has also been confirmed for online multiplayer, bringing together fans of CATAN from both PlayStation and Xbox platforms.

The bold games are exclusive to that console.

PS3 Exclusives above 8/10: 5
Xbox 360 Exclusives above 8/10: 39

Xbox 360 has 7.8 times as many 8/10 games exclusive to their console. Also, NBA Street Homecourt and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2007 are the only ports that rank higher on the PS3 and are above scores of 8/10.
Does this, for now, prove that Xbox 360 has better games than PS3 at this point? Also, will the PS3 be able to catch up and then keep up in the coming years? There's a long way to go, but for now, the claims that PS3 doesn't have many good games... is true.

Ratings taken from MetaCritic.com. To be in the top scores for each console, each game had to have at least 5 ratings from seperate sites.

Catan” for Xbox LIVE Arcade puts players in the role of colonists on a newly discovered island, where they vie for control of valuable territory and resources through strategy and trading. The game can be learned in just minutes, but will challenge players of all skill levels, even the experts!

Klaus Teuber, creator of the original Settlers of Catan board game, had this to say about the collaboration with Big Huge Games: "I had no doubts that Brian Reynolds would do a great job, and the first version of the game exceeded my highest expectations. The AI is so clever that I even lost several games in a row! Hands down, this game for the Xbox LIVE Arcade is an amazing achievement."

Catan” will be available worldwide for 800 Microsoft Points and is rated E for Everyone.

Game Features
* Learn As You Play tutorial, making the game instantly accessible even to players who have never played “Settlers of Catan” before

The classic version of “Centipede” challenges gamers to defend their villages against an onslaught of centipedes, spiders, army ants and more. Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers will also have access to an “Evolved” version which features pre-rendered, high definition graphics, special effects like motion blur, trails and particle-based explosions that make this classic as enjoyable today as it was in the arcade decades ago.



In “Millipede,” the primary challenge is to obliterate chains of arthropods that creep down from the top of the screen. Scattered mushrooms are the gamers’ main tool to shoot, destroy and redirect the menacing millipedes. “Millipede” also offers up Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers an “Evolved” version of this coin-op classic.
