New “Casino for iPad” App Fails to Return Investments

Dec 13, 2010

A new iPad app called “Casino for iPad” can be purchased from the Apple App Store for $6.99, but does not allow this money to be won back.

The basic idea behind gambling is that money is spent in an effort to win more. The “Casino for iPad” app from Viaden Mobile ignores the part about winning, and instead focuses on offering just-for-fun casino games. This is a valid strategy, but it could leave some consumers wanting more.

“Casino for iPad” comes with 12 games, including iPad roulette, iPad poker, iPad blackjack and iPad slots. The games are played with chips, but these have just token value, and cost nothing to acquire. Big wins can be broadcast on major social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, but have no real world value.

In contrast, true iPad casinos like Platinum Play Mobile Casino and All Slots Mobile Casino offer a similar selection of casino games, all designed specifically to work with the iPad’s multi-touch interface. The difference is that these casino games accept real money wagers, and offer real money payouts.

In fact, some of the games available at these iPad casinos offer progressive jackpot prizes capable of paying out several million dollars – all for an investment not much more than it takes to purchase the just-for-fun “Casino for iPad” app.

Of course, not everyone who wants to play casino games on an iPad will want to gamble for real money, so the new “Casino for iPad” app certainly has its place. But for iPad users who are interested getting something more for their money, there are other options available.

    How could someone charge $7 for a blackjack game with no payout?

    What a rip off.

    Surely if the app make it clear that there’s no cash win, it isn’t a problem, though? I could understand the article’s outrage if it was selling itself as an app where you could win money and conning people, but it’s clearly not, so I don’t really see the issue – people don’t HAVE to buy it!
