Casino Over Under
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Reviewed by Jim Desposito
Casino Over Under is a simple card game that draws you in and doesn’t let go.
Before you know it you’ll have played dozens of hands and wonder where the time went.
Developed by Casino Over Under, LLC, this simple and fun game is great for either short bursts of play or extended sessions.
While a tutorial is provided, it hardly needs one. You’ll learn how to bet and that “over” means that the value of your 3 cards is greater than 23, while “under” means that the value of your 3 cards must be less than 18. Once you know those two numbers you’re good to go.

Unfortunately when playing on an iPad the last screen of the tutorial does not display all the text so you don’t see what number you have to be less than for an “under” bet. Aside from that it would be a nice option to let players quickly bring up the over and under numbers at any time.
You start out with 1,000 chips ($1,000) and the play is very straightforward. You decide how much to bet, whether or not you want to wager a “bonus” bet, and then choose “over” or “under”. That’s it! Simple? Yes. But also very hard to put down.
If you want to play at higher stakes tables you can wait until you’ve won the minimum needed for the table, wait for the timer to run down to make 500 chips available, or buy the chips you need. You can add different amounts of chips starting at 5,000 chips for $0.99 all the way up to 500,000 chips for $6.99.
Layout and Graphics:
For what this game is, the design works very well. It’s not flashy and the card animations are minimal (when a card is shown you see it turn over), but for a betting game it’s fine. We would like to see some options for the card design but not a big deal.
The choice of fonts and color combination is perfectly reasonable making all numbers and text quite readable, when you can see them, and the ads along the bottom of the screen do not interfere with gameplay.
At a glance you see all the pertinent information; the table your at, the amount you have to bet, the payout for a bonus bet, and the buttons that you use to control the play of the game.
If you like playing casino type card games this is definitely one you should check out. It’s free to download and lots of fun to play.
