Profiling the most popular types of casino games

Casino games have been a part of London’s entertainment culture for centuries.

Some of the most popular games we play now have been around since their fruition.  

There are classic card games, slot games and all kinds of new creations to enjoy.

Whether you play online or at a land-based casino, there’s a plethora to choose from. 

To help you make that decision, we’ve put together the most popular games so you can pick the one that suits you best.  

Most popular types of casino games

  • Slot games  

Slot games are one of the most popular games to play both online and at a land based casino.

It’s one of the easiest games to play as there are hardly any rules to remember. 

You’re also not playing against anyone else so you don’t have to worry about trying to guess their next move.

There are loads of different games to choose from with all kinds of fun themes.  

There are slot games based on films, tv shows, or even well-loved items such as the sweets in Sweet Bonanza.

No matter what you’re into, you’re bound to find a slot game that you enjoy.  

  • Poker 

Poker is another popular casino game that people play both online and in real life.

It’s one of the more complex games to play as there are a few rules involved.

You have to know when to fold, and when to raise the bet.  

You have to be good at bluffing, but not bluffing so often that you hamper your chances of a win. It’s a delicate balance to get right, but it’s worth the practice.

It can be a really fun game to play, and it’s a very sociable one. 

You’re always playing against other people so you can play with friends, or make some new ones along the way.  

  • Blackjack  

Blackjack is a great card game to play as it’s just you and the dealer.

You have to take some risks with this game as you’re trying to guess if the total of your cards is closer to twenty-one than the dealer’s. 

The difficulty is that you can see both of your cards, but only one of the dealer’s cards.

Sometimes it’s easy to tell who is going to be a clearer winner, but this can be a close call as well. 

You have to know when it’s best to take the risk, and when it’s best to just accept defeat.

This is a quick fire game that’s great to play when you’re on the go.  

  • Bingo 

Bingo has always been a very popular game, but it has a reputation that it’s just for the older generation.

However, the tide is finally turning on this outdated idea.

More and more people are enjoying bingo because of how easy and fun it is to play. 

All you have to do is cross off the numbers on your automatically generated bingo card as they’re called out.

If you get a whole row crossed off, you have to say bingo as quickly as possible in order to get your prize.  

Bingo is a great game to play with friends as it brings everyone together.

When you play bingo online, there’s always a chance to make new friends through the chat rooms that are on offer.  

  • Slingo 

Slingo brings together two of the most popular games to play at an online casino.

It combines slot games and bingo together to make one new game that’s super fun to play.  

When you play bingo online, the numbers are randomly generated and then will automatically come up on the screen.

However, when you play slingo, you have to generate the number yourself by using a slot game type reel. 

So, the numbers are still random and you don’t have any control over what numbers come up.

However, you have a more active role in generating the number.

This means that you’re more focussed on what’s going on in the game, as you’re in charge. 

It can be easy to be distracted during a bingo game as the numbers are popping up on screen whilst you’re chatting away in the chatroom.

But slingo is a game you can play solo and focus on more easily.  

  • Roulette  

Roulette is another favourite when playing at a casino – both online and land based.

It’s so simple to play and whether you win or not is completely left up to chance.

There are no rules, you just have to decide where to place your bet. 

On the wheel, there are a bunch of numbers with different colours.

All you need to do is pick either specific numbers to bet on, or you can choose combinations.

This is either all the reds, all the blacks, all even numbers or all odd numbers.  

You can be more specific, such as choosing all the numbers above 10, but that’s up to you to decide.  

Now you know all of the most popular casino games, which one do you want to play first?
