1. Free Windows Phone Casino Apps

You’ll find plenty of free Windows Phone casino apps listed in the Windows Phone marketplace. Generally these apps are not developed by casino companies, but by independent developers who specialize in making games. Thus the emphasis will be less on realistic gambling, and more on interesting gameplay. This type of app doesn’t cost anything to download and install. Playing is also free, as you gamble for game credits rather than real money. This is great if you’re just looking to hack around. But if you’re looking for an authentic casino experience on your Windows Phone, you might want to choose a real money casino instead.

To get started with free Windows Phone casino apps, head over to the Windows Phone marketplace. You can choose from hundreds of different games, including:

• R&CO Roulette
• Craps 2
• SlotMachine
• Texas HoldEm Poker

2. Paid Windows Phone Casino Apps

You can also find paid Windows Phone casino apps in the Windows Phone marketplace. The only difference between these and the free marketplace apps is that you have to pay a small fee – generally from $0.99 to $3 – to download them.

Since paid apps are usually developed by pros, you can expect them to be more carefully crafted than free apps. Free apps tend to be bare bones, skimping on animation and game features. Paid apps tend to go all-out with impressive graphics, sound, and game variations. The bottom line is that you’ll get a better user experience by using paid casino apps on your Windows Phone.

Some paid apps are just implementations of classic casino games. Others are more specialized, like strategy apps that help you hone your skills. There are a bunch of different apps to choose from, no matter what game you play. Here are a few examples:

Video Poker Strategy ($1.99)
• BlackJack ($1.99)
• Baccarat Pro ($2.99)
• Sexy Roulette ($1.29)
• CrazySlots ($1.29)

3. Real Money Windows Phone Casinos

If you’re looking to do more than just practice, you’ll want to look at real money Windows Phone casinos. These allow you to gamble for cash right from your mobile. It’s just like gambling at any regular online casino. But with your Windows Phone, you can gamble no matter where you are – on the bus, in the waiting room, or even at work. You won’t find real money casinos in the Windows Phone marketplace. Instead you’ll have to look for mobile clients on your favorite online casino’s website. If you surf over to your favorite online casino using your Windows Phone, you’ll usually be automatically presented with a mobile download link. Click it to start playing.

Alternatively, visit your favorite online casino on your computer. You’ll see a mobile option in the menu bar or on the front page. Click it, enter your phone number, and you’ll receive a text message with download instructions to your mobile. After that, real money gambling on your Windows Phone is easy as pie.

4. Play Money Windows Phone Casinos

If you don’t want to play for real money but still want a realistic gambling experience, you can use play money Windows Phone casinos. These differ from apps in that they aren’t available in the Windows Phone marketplace – you must get them from actual online casinos.

To start gambling at play money Windows Phone casinos, follow the same steps as you would to set up a real money casino. When it comes time to select a real or practice play option, choose the former. You’ll then have access to all the excitement that comes with playing through a real gaming provider, without the risk involved in playing for your own cash.
