Test Drive Unlimited 2 Casino Online – released in February 2011
During the start of 2011 Atari published the massively open online racing game Test Drive Unlimited 2. The game revolves around some unknown racer who gets the opportunity to enter a series of big racing tournaments. During various racing events the player works his way up in the racing world.
Sometime after the launch of TDU2, Atari revealed a brand new DLC called TDU2 Casino Online.

It sure does. In this DLC you can compete on a racetrack with up to 32 other players and even win a car by playing the slots machines! This DLC also comes with 10 new levels of progression. If you enjoy racing and the thrill of winning in a casino then TDU2 is about as good as it gets.

With the Pub Games the player is offered the chance to win money and items for their Fable II character by playing three different casino-styled games. By winning money and items during the Pub Games you can start Fable II with quite a rich character. The player is awarded with experience point for every piece of gold they bet during these three minigames. These experience points can be used to unlock concept art and higher-stakes versions of the minigames. You can also unlock different tournaments during which you can earn items by beating the computer controlled opponents.
Full House Poker – released in March 2011
If you enjoy playing poker then you should definitely check out Full House Poker that came out in 2011 as an Xbox arcade game. Although there are some other arcade poker games that came out for Xbox Arcade, Full House Poker still is the best one out there. Even though it doesn’t allow you to play for real money, it does offer a lot more than other online poker games for Xbox.
Besides the single player mode, Full House Poker allows you to play online against friends and strangers with Xbox Live. And that’s where the real fun starts. You can build up your bankroll and enter a variety of tournaments. In Full House Poker you can also join the so-called ‘Texas Heat’ events. During these events you play a 30 minute game against other players. The goal is to gain the most experience points. These points are awarded for winning hands but also for intelligent play. With these experience points you an unlock clothing and accessories for your in-game character, but they can also be used for gaining access to multiplayer games with higher stakes. We really recommend playing Full House Poker online as the multiplayer action is more enjoyable than the single player game.
