A trip to Las Vegas is a dream come true for many gambling fans as there's no better city in the world to enjoy amazing nightlife, world-class restaurants, extravagant shows, and all the gambling action you could ever desire. While your iPhone can't magically teleport you to Vegas or let you play a starring role in a Cirque du Soleil show, you can enjoy the next best thing: casino online action on your smartphone or tablet device.
You won't be able to wager for real money but you can still enjoy all your favorite games such as slots, poker, blackjack, craps, and roulette. A variety of apps -- both free and premium ones -- put virtual versions of hundreds of casino games in the palm of your hand. In many way the iPhone is the dream device for top online casino games, as it's easy to pick it up and try a few spins or play a few hands here and there when you have some time to kill.
Poker fans will be especially happy, as the game translates well to the iPhone and poker apps such as Apple Texas Hold'em and Zynga Poker are some of the most popular iPhone gaming apps on the market. You can sharpen your poker skills versus computer opponents or log onto a network of tens of thousands of players from around the world, with a seat at the table always available and waiting for you.
Playing on your iPhone is also a great way to practice and learn new games before your next big trip to Vegas. Not only can you learn the rules to tricky games like craps or Pai Gow but you can practice and learn at your own speed, without the pressure of other players at the table waiting for your decision. There are also apps for online blackjacktrainers that can teach you both basic strategy and how to count cards -- but you'll have to leave your iPhone in your pocket when you're actually in Vegas so be sure you do your homework beforehand!
