Not everyone is aware of the multitude of different games you can play at a casino. I’ve listed a bunch of them in this article so take a look and expand your casino knowledge.
It’s A Whole New World
New to the world of online casinos? Don’t worry, you are in for a treat. I fully understand that being introduced to this absolute jungle of games, many of which you’ve never heard of or seen before, can be a bit overwhelming in the beginning.
I hope and think you will get a better understanding of what to expect after reading this article. Have a good read and when you’re done, head out into the wilderness of casinos and dive into the many entertaining games on offer.
The most popular and most common game is of course the slot. You will find out that there is an incredible amount of them out there and some are more fun than others.
If you expect them all to be boring fruit machines like in the old days, think again. It’s a whole new world out there as you are about to find out.
Just to give you an example of the evolution of slots, did you ever think you could go fishing right there on your phone? Well, grab your gear and let’s head out onto the lake.
Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy – Evoplay
The bonus round is where all the big fish love to hang out and there are two ways for you to get there.
Bonus Buy – This is where you pay a small fee and you’ll be taken directly to the bonus buy. In this game it will cost you between 45x – 137x your bet, depending on how many spins you want.
Collect Scatters – Most slots will let you enter the bonus round if you can land at least 3 scatters and the same goes for this game. You can get 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, if you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters.
Worth A Fortune
Even if you don’t catch anything, a day on the lake can still be worth a fortune for your mental health. However, when doing it in a slot, it can also be worth a fortune but in a monetary way, if you know what I mean.
Playing Blackjack online is really fun and as a table game, Blackjack is one of my favorites. The Table Games category is a lot more widespread than slots because of the versatility and amount of options.
Blackjack is only one of many games available at all casinos. Some of the other games that are incredibly popular are:
- Sic Bo
All of these games are available under Table Games but it doesn’t end there. Why? Because each of these categories have a bunch of different variations under it.
For example, let’s continue down the Blackjack rabbit hole for a little while longer. You may think Blackjack is Blackjack and that’s it. Well, you would be wrong. Let me list a few different options you will have if you are looking to play Blackjack at any of the online casinos.
- American Blackjack
- European Blackjack
- Blackjack Multihand Pro
- Free Bet Blackjack
- Blackjack VIP
- Blackjack 3
- First Person Blackjack
- Blackjack Lucky Sevens
- Multihand Blackjack
These are only a few of the many options but I’m pretty sure you get the idea, right?
American Blackjack – BetSoft
I prefer keeping things simple and the same goes when it’s time to take a seat at the Blackjack table. These screenshots are from American Blackjack by BetSoft and it’s an easy game to play, even if you are a beginner.
Do You Stand or Take a Hit?
I opted to play three hands at once, which is quite nice in a game like this. After the cards were dealt I was given a soft 16, 16 and a 13. Not an optimal start but when is it ever, right?
Considering the dealer was showing a 3, it’s a classic move not to push too hard and instead hoping the dealer will go bust. This is why I actually decided to stand on all three hands, believe it or not.
What a nice feeling it is to be right in Blackjack. After showing a 3, the dealer flipped his other card which was another 3. The next card was a 10, leaving him a 16 and obviously he had to pull another card.
I believe I told you it’s a classic move to let the dealer go bust with a lower showing card, right? When the next card pulled turned out to be a queen – Boom, I was a winner in all three of my hands!
I wish it was this easy every time but it definitely is not. However, my moves really worked this time and since it was done to demonstrate one of the many Blackjack games, it makes me look like I am a Blackjack Master, haha.
Explore Your Many Options
Anyway, you should explore the many different table games and I’m sure you will find more than one game that you really like.
Many of the table games are available live as well, which is really cool. This is as close as it gets to a land based casino and I think it’s a great option. Evolution Gaming is the king when it’s time to play live and there’s a lot of quality games out on the market.
Sometimes playing with a live dealer is a lot more fun than the non-live version and you will see for yourself that it’s a major difference.
You will see most of the classics on the list of live games, such as:
- Roulette Live
- Speed Blackjack
- Three Card Poker
- Texas Hold’em
- Double Ball Roulette
Most of the games will have multiple versions with different twists and I’m all for it.
If you want to give that Poker itch a scratch, Casino Hold’em is one of many versions you can play live. Put down the small Ante and wait for the cards to be dealt.
In this case I had a King and a Four. Before things will move on, you need to make your decision. Double up and keep playing or throw it in the trash and fold. Like the daredevil that I am, I opted to keep playing even though I didn’t really have anything at all, just yet.
Leave the Game as a Winner
After all the cards were out, it turned out that I had pulled off a Straight. This gave me the win and I could shut it down, knowing I left the game as a winner. Easy, peasy!
Different Types of Live Games
There are other games available live as well, that might not be your classic table games. I would say that these types of games are getting more and more popular and they are the perfect change of pace to your Roulette, Baccarat and Craps.
Some of the games I’m referring to are:
- Crazy Time
- Lightning Roulette
- Deal or No Deal
- Cash or Crash
- Mega Ball
- Football Studio
- Live Wheel of Fortune
- Dream Catcher
If you enjoy Roulette and don’t mind a little extra spice, I highly recommend taking a look at XXXTreme Lightning Roulette. It’s a great switch to the old Roulette game and there are massive wins up for grabs.
Before each spin, it’s time to decide the Lightning Numbers. There can be a random amount of numbers pulled and in this case, it was numbers 25 and 28. When the numbers have been decided, they will get a random multiplier added to each of them and you can see above how number 25 will pay 100x and 28 will pay 50x.
Light Up the Numbers
As the ball keeps bouncing around and looking for a pocket to relax in, you can see the Lightning Numbers lit up on the board.
I’ve seen it happen many times before, that none of my numbers were pulled. You can’t win them all but as I said earlier, with a bit of luck, you can hit the Lightning Numbers and get a massive multiplier. I’ve seen them get up to around 600x sometimes and I wouldn’t mind pocketing one of those.
Give it a shot and see what you think!
One of the latest inventions for online casinos are scratch tickets. That’s right, just like the ones you can buy at the local shop or kiosk. I’m not sure how popular they are but considering they are still around and more and more of them are coming out, there must be an interest in them.
Go Old School
I scratched my way through all the squares because I’m old school and didn’t want to click on the “scratch all” button. It turns out I won €0.40 on something I paid €2 for. Yes, I won, which is great, but I still lost money which isn’t great.
I don’t think Scratch lottery is nearly as fun as the other casino games so I won’t do any more of it. You might like them though so don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
Provably Fair Games
Many crypto casinos have been coming out with their own games lately and they are all Provably Fair, meaning they are as 100% fair and even possible to check if needed.
They are all very simple games in terms of graphics. In fact, I will go ahead and call them extremely basic. Does that mean they are boring to play? Not at all. They are just different.
You’ll find a few different games but many are the same regardless of where you play. Some of these are:
Just to give you an idea, here are a couple of screenshots from BitStarz.
Some casinos call the game Aviator, but it’s the same idea. Place your bet and guess how far the plane will get before it crashes. If you manage to pull out before it crashes, you win!
I like Plinko and this is where you bet and hope that the disc/ball ends up in the biggest multiplier possible.
See For Yourself
These games are quite fun and I suggest you try a few of them and see for yourself. They are far from the casino games you are used to but changing things up every now and then is a good thing.
Progressive Jackpot Games
When people talk about playing at a casino, one word that every person knows about even if they have never played, is the word Jackpot. I think most people have dreamt about winning one of those life-changing Jackpots.
There are a lot of Progressive Jackpot slots out there, with Mega Moolah being the biggest of them all with Jackpots reaching sums close to a mind-blowing €20 million! By progressive, it means that a small part of the money that every player, anywhere in the world, bets on the game goes to a big pot, which is how the Jackpot can get so big.
It will keep growing until one lucky player wins it.
Some of the more popular Jackpot games besides Mega Moolah are:
- Fortunium Gold
- Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways
- Cash’n Riches
- Major Millions
Sports Betting Is on Its Own
If you wonder why I don’t mention Sports Betting, it’s because I wanted to focus on casino games in this article. Yes, you can bet on sports at many casinos but far from all of them. Even though I enjoy both sides of a casino, I prefer to separate the two.
So, now that you have gotten an introduction and overview of what kind of games you can expect at an online casino, I bet you are eager to try them out for yourself and I think you should.
