Internet-Ready TVs are Made for Watching - and Playing - the Classics


"Let’s have s look at what you could have" (CC BY 2.0) by markhillary

Yes, it’s not the Golden Age, but this has got to be one of the best times to be alive. We now have super-advanced technology that enables us to not only consume contemporary culture but also access everything that came before it - and that includes the ‘70s and ‘80s classic TV shows. With the modern internet-ready TV sets, viewers can now instantly open sites that allow them to choose their own programming, such as YouTube and Netflix. You can even play classic games on the TVs as well. These retro-look TVs are pretty much made for plugging in and playing some nostalgic entertainment. Plus, many of them are large enough to remind us of the silver screen.

But there's more. Imagine the game shows of old with an interactive internet element. You can now recreate that using a Smart TV. How about replaying a load of classic Bullseye or Gambit episodes and then enjoying the modern incarnations of the game?  

If you don’t remember Bullseye, you can check out old episodes on YouTube. It was a British game show of the ‘80s and ‘90s based on darts and presented by Jim Bowen. There were three pairs of contestants, each with one darts player and one person to answer questions. The show followed a fairly straightforward format which made it easy viewing - the very definition of a classic. Players competed through three main rounds; Bully’s Category board, Pounds for Points, and Bully’s Prize Board. The winners who played the final round could also go for Bully’s Star Prize Gamble at the end. The best prizes tended to be holidays, cars, caravans or speedboats. Once all those unforgettable episodes have got you in the mood, you can play Bullseye games online through your internet-ready TV

Gambit was an American classic based on blackjack that ran in the ‘70s and ‘80s in which two couples competed against one another to win cars and cash prizes. The aim of the game was to get two cards adding up to as close to 21 as possible, and players had to answer questions to win control of the top card from a giant deck. Contestants then had the option of adding that card to their own hand or their opponent’s hand.
The winning couple would go on to play a bonus round called the Gambit Board. The couple had to select cards and uncover prizes. If they exceeded 21, though, they went bust. The key was to stop before that point to take home the prizes that were revealed.  

There is no doubt that after a few episodes of Gambit you’ll be in the mood to play some blackjack for yourself. Like Bullseye, you can play this casino classic through your Smart TV. And, if you're interested, there's a 21st-century currency for your stake.

Bitcoin is the internet currency that has boomed in recent years, and now many online casinos operate with it. Playing blackjack with Bitcoin on your internet-ready TV is another great way to mix a timeless game with the convenience of the 21st century.

Of course, there are plenty of other memorable TV Shows that you can combine with games on your internet TV. Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud, and Jeopardy all have game versions to give you a chance to imagine you were really there at the time!
