Understanding the Different Types of Online Casino Games

You may have come back from a holiday in Las Vegas and would like to continue the thrill of the casino at home, or perhaps join friends for a quick game of online bingo. Whatever your reason, online casino games can be a little tricky to navigate for those just starting out. Read on for more information on the popular games and their differences.


With Covid-19 impacting the bingo halls, playing bingo online provided an outlet for those who had to stay at home and yet still wanted to enjoy the game. And although things are once again open, online bingo has continued to be popular with those who enjoy playing the game from the comfort of their own homes. There are many different themes and sites to choose from but the basics of the game remain the same, however, you don’t need to worry about missing a number as they are automatically marked off. If you are worried about the social aspect, many online bingo sites have a chat room too, so you can chat with fellow players during the game.

Common online bingo games include:

  • 90 Ball Bingo – The most traditional game of bingo
  • 80 Ball Bingo
  • 75 Ball Bingo
  • 30 Ball Bingo


The most common type of online casino game, slots, come in an array of different themes and styles. They are simple to play and don’t require a large amount of cash to get started; some games can even be played with a penny. Online slots don’t vary much from those you will find in a casino, the player makes their bet, clicks to spin the reels and then waits for them to stop to see if they have lined up in the player’s favour or not. A game to play when you are short of time.


A traditional casino card game, of quick pace and luck. Blackjack is played with a 52 deck of cards; to win you need to get to 21 or as close to 21, without going over. The game is played against the dealer. The online version is very similar, firstly you make your bet and then click deal. Once you can see the cards you have been dealt you can choose if you want to ‘stand’ where you stick with the cards you have been dealt or ‘hit’ where you are dealt a third card. If you are successful in being the first/ closest to 21 you will receive your winnings. If you go over 21, unfortunately, you have lost. With online blackjack, you can choose whether to enter into a live dealer game or a game which is generated by RNG (random number generator) and you play against the computer.

Hopefully, you now feel a little more confident in trying your hand at online casino games. Good Luck!
