1. Slots


Slot games are one of the most popular games to play online, they’re known for being simple, yet exciting when you match up the images through chance. Over the years, slot gaming has developed with new themes, based on TV shows or different popular games and new graphics that has allowed more complex games to come about.

Classic slot games are the ones we’ve known to have fruit symbols and other matching images that spin to try and match. Their simplicity and well-known themes make it easy for gamers to pay and likely win.

2. Roulette

online vs live roulette

Roulette is one of the classics when it comes to online casino games and has been popular for a long time. Players bet on the outcome of a spinning wheel and predict where the ball will land, whether that’s on a black or red, or a number. However, there are several versions that you can get when it comes to online casinos. Live Roulette, also brings a new level to the table to make it even more enticing for payers.

Don’t worry, we’re not talking about Russian Roulette. But European Roulette is a version that features a wheel with 37 options which are numbered from 0-36 so you predict which number it will land on. With American Roulette, on the other hand, there’s an additional double zero place too, so it decreases the chances of you winning with an extra pocket.

When it comes to French Roulette, there are new rules introduced. So if you land on zero, you can recover some of your bets. There are also additional rules, like the ‘La Partage’ and ‘En Prison’ which can give you more options to win, making it a more popular option.

3. Blackjack


I used to play Blackjack as a kid with my parents, but we’d bet with matches instead of real money. However, it’s a game of both skill and luck which makes it a popular one for online casino players.

The aim of the game? Beat the dealer by having a hand as close to 21 as you can. You’re dealt two cards to start with, and then you can choose to have a hit aka take another card but face up so everyone can see, stick with your current hand, or buy where you bet more money to buy an additional card face down.

If you go over 21, then you’re out. However, if you get a picture card (worth ten points) and an Ace, then you’ve got Blackjack.

There are a few different versions out there, some containing a split. So, if you have two matching cards, you can split them into separate hands, you can also put one card up if you’re

  1. Trying to bluff to beat the dealer, or
  2. Have Blackjack – picture card and 21

There are also variations of Blackjack when the dealer only gets one card face up until everyone is dealt their two cards. In Blackjack Switch, players have two hands and you can switch but that’s where more complicated rules come in. As far as the most popular goes, traditional Blackjack can be a lot of fun without getting too complicated.

4. Poker


Poker is undoubtedly one of the most popular games when it comes to Casinos, both online and offline. With skill, strategy and a good poker face, in person, there’s no wonder online versions of the game have gained immense popularity.

There are still many versions of poker games available, whether it’s Texas Hold’em (Beyonce vibes) with two private cards and then using a lineup of cards in the middle to match too until you get Poker.

Poker is a game of skill and strategy, and its online versions have gained immense popularity. There are various types of poker games available in online casinos, catering to different skill levels and preferences. Which is what makes it really popular.

5. Sic Bo

Sic Bo is a game I hadn’t really come across before until I researched this article. It’s an ancient Chinese Dice game which has been becoming more popular in online gaming and casinos because it has little rules but some decent payouts all based on the roll of a dice.

As far as I’m aware, small bets can win between four and ten. But, if you bet higher you can roll the three dice and win for numbers up to 17. There are then specific bets which have a higher reward but lower probability.  In addition, there are combinations so you et on specific numbers, which offer a moderate risk and reward – and therefore, can be a popular choice when it comes to games.

6. Dragon Tiger


Dragon Tiger is a simple and fast-paced card game that originates from Cambodia. It is similar to baccarat but even more straightforward.

Players bet that the Dragon hand will have a higher card value than the Tiger hand. The game uses a standard 52-card deck, and aces are low.

Players bet that the Tiger hand will have a higher card value than the Dragon hand. The game is resolved quickly, making it perfect for players who enjoy fast action.Players can also bet that both the Dragon and Tiger hands will have the same card value. This bet has the highest payout due to its low probability. Simples.


Online casinos offer a diverse range of games to suit all tastes and preferences and getting the right taste and equipment can make for a healthy gamer. From the simplicity of slots to the strategic depth of poker and the elegance of baccarat, there is something for everyone.

The introduction of live dealer games has further enhanced the online casino experience, providing players with a more immersive and interactive way to enjoy their favourite games. As technology continues to improve, we can expect to see the quality of online casinos and the games they offer improve as well.
