It's doesn't have to be about playing poker or blackjack.

With the best iOS card apps, you can move beyond traditional Vegas-style casino games to play clever and captivating games based on rummy, solitaire, Russian Roulette, and more. Steal treasure, manage a kingdom, even play with cats.

What is the difference between iOS's free-to-play and paid games?

In free-to-play card games, the developer makes a basic set of cards or abilities available to everyone to play. Then, to add cards to your deck or play more hands a day, you make in-app purchases, which run from 99 cents to $99.99 per item. In paid games, you pay upfront to download and play, usually 99 cents to $9.99. While some paid games like Reigns give you everything for one price, others -- such as Exploding Kittens -- offer in-app purchases to add cards.

Why are there no paid casino games?

Almost all of the iOS slots -- blackjack, poker, roulette, and bingo games -- are free-to-play but come with restrictions, such as allowing you to play a few hands a day. To play more daily hands, you need to make an in-app purchase, which run from 99 cents to $99.99. The freemium plan works in the developers' favor, as all the top grossing card games in the App Store are casino games.

Can I share my iOS games with family?

Through Apple's Family Sharing program, you can share apps, music, and e-books with up to six family members, on iOS and MacOS devices. Use the same credit card for app purchases, and monitor a child's purchases.
