One of the most attractive features of an online casino is that they offer a greater and more varied amount of games than land based casinos. Through the ever expanding number of software providers and their game portfolio there is a minimal chance that an online casino will not include games that you are interested in. Since these platforms are compatible with each other, an online casino may include multiple software providers, with multiple types of games for a highly varied offer of games.
Different Types of Games
Online casinos often categorize their games in order to make the site more clear and coherent. Most games have been split into some of the following categories: slots, table games, live casino, and other games. Naturally, some online casinos are so large that they also include a Sportsbook, Video Poker, or Bingo. In this case, most slots and live casino games can be found under the category Casino or Vegas.
In case you are not yet familiar with the multiple types of games, we have dedicated a section to explain the different categories.
Slot machines, more commonly known as slots, can be split into three categories: videoslots, classic slots, and jackpot slots. Classic slots are the oldest kind of slotmachines, and are often found in bars, where they aim to entertain bored customers on a quiet night. Naturally, these machines do not include animations or features such as sticky wilds or avalanches. Fruitmachines are the most familiar classic slots games.
The exact features that classic slots don’t contain is what makes videoslots so attractive. These include bonus features and animations that make the game more attractive for gamers. 3D videoslots are even more animated, with 3D avatars that interact with the player during big wins or bonus features. Jackpot slots can be both fruitmachines or videoslots, as long as they include one or multiple jackpots. The most well-known slotmachine software providers are: NetEnt, Microgaming, NextGen Gaming, Betsoft (3D slots), PlayTech, Play’n Go, Quickspin, and iSoftBet.
Table games are generally speaking any games that you might be played around a table. This includes but does not necessarily mean the following games: roulette, poker, blackjack, baccarat, Texas Hold’em, punto banco, red dog, trumps, and craps. These games are automated and generally faster than the live casino games.
The live casino at most online casino’s include many of the most played table games, but then live, with real croupiers. This means that you receive the full land based casino experience while at an online casino. These croupiers welcome you to the table and personally deal you your hand. While some live casino platforms are in an actual casino, with real players, not only virtual players, most online casino’s use studios where live casino dealers can concentrate on the online players without being distracted by real players.
Virtual Reality Casino Games
A newcomer are so called Virtual Realty Casino games. We will create an article soon about VR Casino Games and which games you can currently play. At Slots Million you can already play VR Casino Games with an Oculus Rift.
Casinos often offer several other games that do not fall under the other categories. These casino games are often individual and used to improve the variety so that all players may find what they are looking for. Some examples of games that may be placed in the “other games” section are: bingo, horse racing, arcade slots, four by four, Germinator, keno, or flip card.
