With more than 5 million likes, DoubleDown Casino is one of the most popular casino games on Facebook. It's now available as a free app for Android devices. DoubleDown Casino Slots is a simplified version of the online game, offering casino-style slot machine games, but in most ways it's a lot like what millions of users have come to expect. DoubleDown Casino Slots can import your game settings and earnings when you log in from Facebook, but you can also register separately or play as a guest. Players logged in through Facebook can even play against their friends and others. We tried this free game while logged on via Wi-Fi over our usual broadband connection.
DoubleDown Casino Slots lets you log in via your Facebook account or as a Guest. We tried both. If you've played this game online, the Android app can access your data. New users won't notice much of a difference, though. When you first run this app, it asks to install some files on your SD card. It probably won't matter to most users, but it's another thing to be aware of. The game's interface has the garishly bright colors and jangly sound typical of online casino games and even more common among their Android versions. We expected nothing less than handheld Vegas, and DoubleDown Casino Slots delivered. The game's basic setup has four slot machines on the floor. We started with the first one, Cleopatra, and won on the first spin. Another spin and we'd won enough to buy some serious chips. DoubleDown Casino Slots' games get much more complex, the more you play and win.
One thing you need to be aware of, though: Unlike most free Android games, DoubleDown Casino requires an active broadband Internet connection. That's not a problem with a Wi-Fi connection, which the developer recommends. But if you're streaming 3G or 4G data from your wireless carrier, time spent at DoubleDown Casino's slots could have an effect similar to a trip to a real casino, if you rack up a big bill. Of course, with DoubleDown Casino, your "winnings" are all in fun!
