In terms of the types of games that are available at land-based casinos and online casinos, there is not a lot of difference. They both offer mostly the same types of games, depending on the type of online casino. The differences are usually with the variety of game options for a single game as well as the betting options and progressive jackpot offerings.
These popular games can be played at online casinos.
Most slots games at online casinos are called ‘video slots’. You can choose between traditional slots, called fruit machines, that only has three reels and other video slots that have five reels. The five-reel games offer more opportunities to win.
If you want to try your hand at online poker, you can choose between electronic poker, video poker and even live poker. The first two you play as you would other online games, while live poker offers the option of playing with a real dealer and players who can talk to each other via a chat channel.
Craps is the game where you throw the die and bet on which numbers they will end on. This game offers many different betting options. You may remember the phrase ‘snake eyes’ being used in casino movies. This term is usually used at the craps tables.
Most online casinos have a separate section for sports betting. Here you can bet on a variety of sporting events, races, and more. Not all casinos offer the same variety of sports betting options. If this is your main area of play, look for an online casino that has a special section with a large variety of sports betting options.
Other games include roulette, blackjack, and baccarat for the big spenders. You will be spoiled for choice no matter which online casino you decide on. Remember to play responsibly and have fun!
