Two things have stood out about AEW Games since its launch back in November of last year:
- Everyone involved is having a lot of fun acting as the faces of a new video game brand.
- In an effort to get something with the company’s name on it to market a lot quicker than the time it takes to actually develop and launch a wrestling game (and to hopefully make a few bucks in the process), the first thing out the door would be a reskinned mobile casino app.
Well, you can now download AEW Casino: Double Or Nothing from the Apple App and Google Play stores and… both of those things are still very clear.
If you’re looking to kill some time playing poker, roulette, slots or seven other games of chance on your phone, there’s nothing wrong with AEW Casino: Double Or Nothing. If you want it to have more AEW flare than some logos on tables and Kenny Omega, Cody, or Sting on load screens, however – you’re probably going to be disappointed.
But if you want that All Elite flare you love from Being The Elite and Dynamite, the launch trailer is your hook-up. From intentional Omega cheese to John Silver being a shirtless dork to Dr. Britt Baker rolling the bones because “mama needs a new x-ray machine,” the brief video is a blast…
Is it more fun that playing AEW Casino: Double Or Nothing? Answers will vary. It’s hard to argue the game is more original than the trailer, though.
Here’s full presser for the app’s launch, in case it helps you decide:
