    Default Pokie Roms for Android?

    We are going to try and get the Mother In-Law off the Pokies
    She has ask for a tablet with games on it she can play.

    My first concern was she will start "online gambling".
    I did a quick Google search and there are actually Pokie Games on the Playstore
    I haven't tried any

    But has anyone here had success with Pokie Roms for Android?
    Considering the Tablets have a touch screen, they should work well.

    I know i should be looking at other "Non Gambling" games, but i'm interested to hear if anyone is running commercial roms on Android?
    Thanks

    Found an Emulator:

    I reckon you are just exchanging one evil for another.

    Every stupid game there is hounds you to "buy credits".

    I haven't run any pokie emulators yet. The old PC executables looked good, but I'm wondering if there are any for the raspberry pi?
    I've got an old chassis that I was using for parts, but now there is enough left to give it a new life as pokie pi.
    drop a new LCD screen in and wire up the buttons to the GPIO and away we go.

    I could of course just drop in a PC and run the .exe files with a hacked up keyboard, but a pi just seems more appropriate.

    I've been slowly working away with an old electro mechanical unit with PIC chips to do all the work.

    gee, the last time I ran Wine ummmm... it was unstable. More unstable than the current windows OS at the time

    I would have thought a rom emulator might have been a better idea than doubling up on the OS, but it's on my list of things to try.
