From blackjack to poker, Vegas-style games dominate iOS's free card-game category. The games don't come with free drinks, however. If you're tired of playing the hand you've been dealt and would rather build your own deck to duel an opponent, check out the card-battling games including Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh.

What is a trading card game, or TCG?

In a trading card game, sometimes known as a collectible card game, you build a deck of cards that you use to duel an opponent in a turn-based game. Trade cards with other players or buy expansion packs to construct a deck that matches your playing style. Most card games give you a starter deck, but to expand your collection, you often need to buy expansion packs through in-app purchases.

What are casino apps?

Casino apps for iOS include Vegas-style games, such as slots, blackjack, poker, roulette, and bingo. Most apps focus on a specific game of chance, such as Texas hold 'em. But a few, including Big Fish Casino, offer a choice of games. Play with friends, have the app suggest opponents, or play against the game.

What about other card games?

You can play solo card games, such as solitaire, or challenge family and friends to a game of Uno.

What is the difference between free vs. free to play?

With free games, you can download and play the game without cost. While some mobile games are truly free -- such as Zynga's Solitaire -- they often are supported by ads. The alternative to free is free to play, where you get a basic set of cards to begin playing with. Then, to add more powerful cards to your deck or play more hands, you need to make in-app purchases, which can range from 99 cents to $99.99 per item.
