Online Casino Game Types
Most of today’s leading online casino software providers have developed an exciting range of more than 100 different game variants. Microgaming has actually produced more than 600 different games and Playtech is close to having produced 300 individual games and the main game categories available at any online casino today include Online Slots, Video Poker, Table Games, Card Games and Progressive Jackpot Games.
Other additional gaming content which is now available generally includes Online Scratch Cards (and other lottery style games such as Keno and Bingo), plus you can also find unique/speciality games that may only be available at one or two casinos. These games are often labelled as Variety Games, Arcade Games or just ‘other’ games. They may also be called Hi-Lo games, Instant Win Games or Fixed Odds games. It all depends on where you are playing.
All of the speciality games from Microgaming for example can be found in a section called Variety Games and Playtech’s speciality games can be found in a section called Arcade Games or Asian Games. These games are generally available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode and they are ideal games for players who are looking to experience something a little different for a change.
When you visit an online casino today, you can also generally find more than one version of each game. For example, there are numerous different Blackjack varieties, several different types of roulette and multiple different online poker varieties such as Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Draw Poker, 3 Card Poker, Casino Hold’em Poker and Caribbean Stud Poker, and one or two other varieties.
New games continue to be added all the time at today’s online casinos, so players always have fresh gaming content to look forward to. The other types of games that you can find at Playtech and Microgaming casinos include Multi-Player games. Some of Microgaming’s most popular Multi-player games include titles such as Multi-Player Avalon Slot, Multi-Player Isis Slot, Multi-Player No Worries slot and Multi-Player Wheel of Wealth Special Edition Slot. Playtech’s most popular Multi-Player Game is a fishing themed slot machine called Fishing with Buddies.
