6th Place: Video Poker Deluxe
This mobile app by Happen Labs offers exactly what it says on the tin. Video poker? Only that and nothing but video poker. Deluxe? Yes, of course — 16 different video poker games in one app and more to be added soon. Casino? Well, how else would you call a place where you can gamble?
The app looks pretty simple and lightweight. And judging by the blue and red colour scheme, styles itself as a classic video poker machine successor. So if you wish to feel this retro vibe — grab your welcome coin bonus and start a game of Jacks or Better, Joker, Double Bonus, All American or some other of your choice.

4th Place: Video Poker — Free
Many apps build around the nostalgia of video poker machines of the ’80 and ’90s. But this one is essentially a video poker machine transferred into your phone. That deep blue table colour? Here. Classic card designs? Here. Even letters look a bit pixelated because they were on 640x480 displays back then.
All in all — it offers an excellent opportunity to experience how people played back then. Or live it out again. That’s why 500,000+ people chose it.
Lightweight and smooth app
15 classic video poker games to choose from: Jacks or Better, Double Extra, Aces and Faces etc.
No distractions like ads, pop-ups and annoying animations and sounds — just you and the game
It might look a bit bland for those used to modern games
No way to play for real money
No iOS version
3rd Place: American Poker 90’s Casino
“It’s a great simple game with no ads, offering a fun way to burn time and make the numbers go up.” Nothing better describes this game than this quote taken from the Google Play review section. The app takes you right into the 90’s video poker, offering such classics as Fruit Poker, American Poker 3 and the game that gave its name to this application — American Poker ’90s.
Further immersion is achievable with in-game design and sounds. So you can actually imagine yourself in front of a classic video poker machine, pushing buttons and inserting coins because even coins jingling is here.
Fairly lightweight app
A full immersion into the classics through sound and graphics
Games take some 5 seconds to load
Fairly low free coin amount discourages high bets
