I have always considered myself to be something of a casino lover in the past; the sounds of cards being shuffled, shrieks of joy from the blackjack tables and the whir of slot machines providing an impressive orchestral backdrop to a grandiose Bond-style environment that is a hive of activity. However, stepping into Casino Royale can be quite a considerable effort; aside from sourcing that perfect tuxedo and an immaculate Aston Martin DB9, a real casino environment can be a bit overwhelming at times. It’s always better to keep things fun and casual rather than pressurising yourself into competing with Le Chiffre and the like.
Mobile gaming is a great way to experience all that a casino has to offer from the comfort of your own chair or even if you are on the move, and I was lucky enough to be invited to the Dorchester Hotel with Casinoeuro to challenge myself at the Sherlock Holmes and the Stolen Stones slot game. It was great introduction to the game, with the buzz of a crowd without the pressures of a real-life casino. The idea was to learn more about this particular slot game from the experts at Casinoeuro, with guidance on how the game worked and what prizes could be won.
Having played a few similar games online before, it was fairly easy to get into the spirit of things and watch those reels turn. Just three win lines and an easy-to-read prize system make spinning the reels really good fun and engaging; there’s no confusion about how to win or what to win. Being from London, there is also something quite apt about seeing Sherlock Holmes’ smiling face pop up on the screen in a throwback to the city’s past. Unlike other games that perhaps require more intense participation, it was easy to pick up and a great way to while away a few minutes, be it over a morning coffee or an evening with friends.
There will always be a place in my heart for a deck of cards, but Casinoeuro mobile gaming has genuinely opened my eyes to a whole raft of entertaining games of luck and chance that keep the whole experience fun and accessible. The pick-up-and-go nature of the site and the multitude of games to play means that there will always be something else to discover, although there will always be that affinity for that deerstalker hat or magnifying glass. Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner…
