Hoyle Casino is a virtual casino video game published by Encore, Inc. It was previously published by Sierra Entertainment for a variety of different platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Sega Dreamcast, and Game Boy Color.

Set in a virtual Las Vegas casino, players create profiles and are given a set amount of virtual money. A player can then visit any part of the virtual casino and wager their virtual money as they could in a real casino.

The game offers instant access to the rules for each game, as well as real time tips and strategies as the player plays a game. Hoyle Casino features 25 default characters to choose from, or players can simply create their own unique custom character.

Controversy and bugs[edit]

The 2007 version of Hoyle Casino was plagued by a bug in the cards game. A player would place a bet, and then the game would freeze for 30 seconds before continuing. Encore was not able to fix this bug. Customers' only recourse was to visit the Encore USA website and submit a refund request for the software. This bug was fixed in Hoyle Casino 2008.[citation needed]
