Online Casino Games

As the popularity of online gaming continues to gather pace, online casinos are continually updating their portfolios of games. Keeping things fresh is a sure fire way to keep attracting new players and regulars alike, However, any gaming enthusiast will be eager to see some of the old favourites alongside the newer additions.

In the last couple of years the introduction of free online casino jackpot games has seen a huge number of new players. Giving people the chance to win real money without ever spending a penny, it’s easy to see why this has been so popular.


Poker

Poker is perhaps the oldest and most classic of all online casino games. It has many variations, including straight poker, stud poker, draw poker and community poker. Of these, Texas Hold ‘Em (a community game) is the most popular and common.

The game itself centres on rounds of betting, with a dealer responsible for distributing cards between players. The player with the best hand wins the collective pot of money at the end of the game.


Roulette

Roulette is perhaps the most easily recognised game across the world, with casino newcomers having seen variants of the game through films or TV. Completely reliant on luck, the players bet on various outcomes of a ball bounced round a spinning roulette wheel, including red/black, odd/even, rows, straight runs, corners, or any of a number of other possible bets with various different payouts.


Craps

Like roulette, players at the Craps table place bets on the outcome of a roll of dice, the difference being that the players themselves roll the dice whereas a roulette croupier will drop the ball around the wheel. All of the other players will place bets on how they think the dice roller (“shooter”) will fare – commonly whether the dice will “Pass” line or “Don’t Pass” line (also called “Win” and “Don’t Win” or “Right” and “Wrong” bets).


Backgammon

Backgammon is not the most popular of casino games, though it is one of the oldest board games for two players. In online casinos, players win money by earning points, and so doing by removing their own checkers from the board before the opponent can do the same. Due to the various moves and tactics available to players, the game is favoured by some due to its reliance on both luck and skill.


Slots

Slots (or “fruit machines” in the UK) have been in casinos since the late nineteenth century. The premise of the slots revolves around the user operating a slot machine, which spins wheels upon each play that randomly stop, revealing a line of symbols. The player may win or lose on the outcome of these symbols, having deposited a set-stake to play each round. Like roulette, slot machines are solely in the realm of luck and require no skills or special knowledge from the player.


Bingo

Bingo is not a traditional casino game, but the recent upsurge in online gaming has seen bingo become one of the most popular games found online. In bingo, each player has a number of randomly numbered cards, upon which they must cross off the numbers as they are called out by the bingo “caller”. The patterns in which the numbers are crossed off determine the winning player/players. Most commonly and historically, the winning patterns are lines (whereby lines of numbers are crossed off) and “full houses” (all of the numbers on a card are marked off).
