Do you enjoy playing slots and table games? If so, you might be interested to know that there are some video games that include gambling mini-games. In this post, we are going to share the best video games for gamblers with you. You can drop by VGR’s gaming forum to share tips for gambling in these games and to discover other video games that feature gambling.

Here are the Best Video Games for Gamblers

  1. Grand Theft Auto Online

Perhaps the most exciting video game destination for gamblers is the Diamond Casino in Grand Theft Auto Online. GTA’s casino does not allow you to win real cash, but you can risk real cash by buying in-game currency using out-of-game funds. You can then play for a chance to win in-game cash and prizes.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Rockstar Games newswire, which may give you a heads-up for times when you have a chance to earn extra with various revenue sources. If you find yourself with that kind of opportunity, you can earn extra in-game cash for gambling.

  1. Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2

Two more video games that feature gambling mini-games are Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2. Gambling in the original game includes poker, liar’s dice, blackjack, horseshoes, five finger fillet and warm wrestling. Gambling mini-games available in RDR 2 include poker, blackjack, dominoes and five finger fillet.

  1. Fallout: New Vegas

As you are exploring the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas, you have the chance to visit multiple casinos offering slot, blackjack and roulette. Fallout: New Vegas has an original gambling mini-game as well known as “Caravan.” Various characters in the game are available to play Caravan with you.

  1. Second Life

In the games we talked about above, you can only win in-game currency from gambling. But in Second Life, you can technically gamble for real money by playing what Linden Lab refers to as approved “skill games.”

You can stake Linden Dollars on skill games. You can then convert your winnings to US Dollars afterwards if you want, or leave them as Linden Dollars to spend in-game.

There actually used to be a broader selection of gambling games available in Second Life, but Linden Lab was not regulating in-game gambling in those days. Still, you will be pleased with the current selection of “skill games.”

  1. The Witcher 3

In The Witcher 3, you can play “Gwent,” which is a gambling mini-game. As you progress through The Witcher 3, you will be able to collect cards to build a more effective deck, making it easier to win future rounds of Gwent. There are even Gwent-related quests and achievements specifically for Gwent. And if you enjoy the Gwent mini-game in The Witcher 3, you can also play the free-to-play Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.

Now you are familiar with some of the best video games for gamblers. Each of these games will help you scratch that gambling itch while engaging you with all kinds of additional excitement you will never find at a regular casino.
