Trying Online Casinos with Free Spins

Online gaming is hot right now. It’s at a peak as people from all ages and backgrounds enjoy a variety of games. Just like we love to talk about Star Wars games here on the site, and things related to SWTOR, Bioware, or sometimes just MMOs or games in general, we also see the topic of online casinos come up from time to time. One reason is the connection between popularity of online video games and online casino games. Online gambling is also super hot right now. For many, it’s just another form of online gaming. For others, it’s a way to get their gambling fix when they can’t make it out to a real life casino. The virtual casino gives them the experience they want, or the chance to play different types of games, all from the comfort of their own homes. And the sheer volume of games and…

You Can Play Pokies Online

The internet now brings many things right to your door that you wouldn’t be able to enjoy otherwise, like pokies. Many people do not live where they can just drive to a casino and enjoy a good game (or 10) of slots. In fact, these games and all gambling are illegal in many areas. However, the Internet gives you the chance to play them any time you want. Online casinos also give you the chance to play as many different games as you want, all in one place. If you drove to an actual casino in person, you wouldn’t find so many options and chances are, many of the favorite, popular games would be full. You’d have to wait your turn at the pokies you most want to play. But playing online takes all of that out of it. There’s no dress code, no expensive food and drinks, and no…

Do Many Star Wars Fans Love Gambling?

There is a connection between people who like online video games and people who like online slots. Lots of people who enjoy one enjoy the other. Statistics have shown links between the two and we’ve seen this apparent in pop culture in a variety of ways. While we won’t likely see a casino added to SWTOR any time soon, you can enjoy some of your favorite slots from the comfort of your own home with online casinos. People also bet on the Star Wars film before The Force Awakens was released and there’s a good chance they will continue to place bets on future films, especially with all the records that first movie has been breaking. It’s an exciting topic for people. Just how some bet on the Superbowl every year (even if they’re not regularly sports fans) there are also people who will bet on Star Wars simply because…

Star Wars Casinos

  Casinos are a place where individuals can come together to gamble. This is not a new concept in the Star Wars world. We saw gambling mentioned in the original films in a variety of ways. It’s been a part of Star Wars canon all along. It’s not a surprise that there will be some crossover in people who like Star Wars and people who enjoy gambling and the casinos. We’ve talked before about how it would be cool to see more Star Wars gambling or casino games worked into our favorite Star Wars video games but with Disney at the helm now, that’s even less likely to happen. Disney seems to think that gambling (even virtual or just for fun) sends a non-family-friendly message that they don’t want to be associated with the franchise. So for now, if you want to enjoy some of your favorite casino games, you’re…

Star Wars Pokies Should Make a Comeback

If you have not had the privilege of experiencing one of the popular Star Wars pokies, you’ve really been missing out. Even people who aren’t huge fan of slots found these fun if they liked Star Wars. There were a variety of games like those to test your Jedi skills, mega jackpots, and more. As we told you about before, Disney decided the Star Wars pokies were not family friendly and a couple of years back, decided to shut them down. This was a very sad time for many fans because the Marvel and Star Wars slot machines were some of the most popular around. Disney may feel like it wasn’t suiting to their family friendly image but it was the adults who enjoyed these games and the people who grew up on the original Star Wars movies are adults now. In fact, it is those adults who have kept…

If Star Wars Had Live Roulette

We’ve talked about gambling in Star Wars before. Honestly, it was not an unheard of affair. In fact, in much of the Star Wars canon, it was quite common. Gambling was the betting of credits, or other possessions, in wagers or games. There were a variety of ways in which one could gamble. We saw gambling quite common on Tatooine. We saw Lando Calrissian lose the Millennium Falcon in a game of sabacc with Han Solo. There are many other parts of Star Wars canon and lore that reference betting and gambling. But what if Star Wars had live roulette? I can definitely see some of our favorite characters playing. I can also see some of the famous characters of Star Wars possibly losing. It’s fun to think about how a game like that could be incorporated into the Star Wars universe. One might even speculate that wars could have…

When The Star Wars Slot Machines Stopped Spinning

The (un)told story of how Disney decided that Star Wars Slot Machines weren’t family-friendly enough and the Force lost the casino battle Two major celebrations are in the air. First, it is the fourth anniversary for SWTOR! Congrats all around and hope for many, many more anniversaries ahead. The second, needless to say, is that the Force Awakens, once again. It is no small wonder. After the last reboot (1999-2005) there was a heavy feeling in the air that it might just have been the last one. Many even pondered that it might be for the best. But not really. Because the question must be asked – would you rather live in a galaxy that stars don’t war, or in one that they do? Don’t even bother to answer that. So spirits are high, and lines outside movie theatres are long. And not to spoil the fun, but it is…

3 Marvel/Star Wars Crossovers We’d Like To See

Now that Disney owns everything (or at least, Marvel and Star Wars), we’ve already seen a lot of changes for some of our favourite entertainment franchises. The most noteworthy of these changes is of course the forthcoming third Star Wars trilogy. However, we’re also seeing Star Wars spin-off films, new Marvel TV shows, and all kinds of spin-offs, side projects, and novelisations that weren’t around before. What we haven’t seen much of yet is crossovers between Marvel and Star Wars, arguably the two most significant branches of Disney’s modern entertainment empire. So here are a few ideas in that category that we think it would be fun to see, starting with gaming concepts. A Crossover Video Game The first idea that comes to mind in this regard would be a fighter series; first because these games are almost impossible not to enjoy and second because they’re probably the easiest ones…

Betting on Star Wars and Star Wars Games

eSport Betting is not a new concept. Just as with traditional sports, for as long as there have been sports, there will be betting on sports. In fact, some will consider it a sport in itself. Online gambling has exploded in recent years and video games are not left out of this scene. There are now even many sites like Superbettingsites.com available to help you learn more about esports betting. Popular games in the esports betting scene include DOTA 2, League of Legends and CSGO. Fans and professionals flock to these games and to the betting seen to try to win big after their favorite player/team wins big. The Star Wars universe is also no stranger to betting. There were various forms of gambling in and around the galaxy for millennia. Stories have been written around Star Wars canon that involved gambling and betting of some type of another. During…

Star Wars Gambling

Star Wars gambling is not new. It has been a popular pastime in the galaxy for millennia. In fact, some areas of the Old Republic allowed gambling and by the time of the Clone Wars, there was a push from Senator Simon Greyshade to legalize it throughout all of the Republic. Gambling had a big effect on Galactic history, as many will recall. For example, Watto lost his slave Anakin Skywalker over a podracing bet and Lando Calrissian won (and later lost) the Millennium Falcon in games of sabaac. Sabaac is a popular card game often played for high stakes. When played professionally, there would be a dealer to oversee the games. The game of sabacc used a deck of seventy-six cards featuring sixty numbered cards divided into four suits, and two copies of eight special cards. Each player is dealt two cards (sometimes five, depending on the set of rules in…
