Poker is one of the oldest and most played games in North America. This passion people have for the game makes it obvious that it will show up in video game form again and again reaching eternally into the future. It’s not just the thrill of winning a hand that makes Poker so great. It’s the psychological side where bluffs and pot manipulation that gets your heart pounding. I myself play Texas Hold’em quite a bit and get a big kick out of the calculating skill involved.
Today I’ll be listing two machines meant to be set up in bars for betting purposes and two other TV plug & play systems for play at home. There’s no end to the varity of these machines, but these four are above average in quality for the price.
