Casino Poker VR :


+ Tournaments
+ Tournament prizes
+ Casual friendly : 6 difficulty levels to choose from
+ Very easy to follow what's going on : Sell all cards clearly, know who's turn it is and how much time he has left, who has a mike and if it's switched on...
+ Best NPC audio comments
+ Free 1K chips each time you run out of chips
+ Easy to mute a player
+ Available on Oculus Store
+ Big update coming
- Gamepad only
- Gear VR level graphics (despite specific CV1 version)
- Tournament prizes are Gear VR games
- No avatar customization : just 3 male and 2 female skins to choose from
- No body tracking : No hands and no room scale. Your avatar's neck stretches out if you move from your chair
- Closed down for a major update since December 2017
  • Best choice for playing some serious poker and for winning Gear VR games... but no hand gesture controls is dull.


MetaTable VR :


+ Best avatars : They use your custom Oculus Store avatar
+ Hand gesture controls available
+ Great graphics
+ 5 rooms to choose from
+ Most social : Items to share and play with...
+ Up to 8 players per table
+ Easy to mute a player
+ Available on Oculus Store
+ Big update coming
- Difficult to follow what's going on : Difficult to see the last card from the side seats, easy to miss that it's your turn if you don't focus on it...
- Casual unfriendly : No beginner table, and you have to bring ALL of your chips to the table
- Stingy : 1k free chips only once per day when you run out of chips
- Clumsy hand gesture controls : Bad enough to cost you chips
- Small player base, probably due to this ~2 months old game being too stingy with it's free 1K chips delay and too hardcore for new players to survive.
- Losing/Winning chips can easily create bad tensions, probably due to the game being too stingy with free 1K chips delay and too hardcore for new players to survive.
  • Best potential for updates and best choice for socializing... until you (or your friends) run out of chips.


Lucky Night : Texas Hold'em VR


+ Best NPC Dealer, and you can tip her
+ Some avatar customization available
+ Good graphics
+ Clearest interface for displaying results (a giant screen), by far.
+ No big update needed
+ Free 1K chips each time you run out of chips (does not stack, so you don't pile up 2k in 2 days this way)
+ Very generous in daily bonus chips
+ BEST (HAND GESTURE) CONTROLS, by far
- Not available on Oculus Store
- No high end table ?
- Player audio doesn't seem to be working
- Least social : Players are facing the NPC dealer instead of each other
  • Best and most immersive VR controls by far... but feels like you're playing against bots.


Lucky Night :


+ Multiple games, including Texas Hold'em
+ Same developers and almost exact same poker game as "Lucky Night : Texas Hold'em VR"
- No players

  • Best potential as a gaming hub with poker... but no (western) player base for now.
