The Best Gambling Games At Online Casinos

Compared with just a few years ago there has been a revolution in the quality and diversity of online casino games. Not only are the games themselves smoother, more entertaining and amazingly designed – the devices which you can play on have increased massively too.

Whether you are into slots, traditional table games or many of the new and exciting gambling opportunities that today’s high tech world makes possible – this is the right page for you. The focus here is on real money gambling, though of course many readers will enjoy the numerous social casino games out there. I’ll start with the different ways you can enjoy casino games in 2016, then cover the main categories of games available, before a brief word about some of the perks and bonuses available to you.

Casino Gambling Games – Main Platforms

#1 – Downloadable Casinos: If you have a laptop or PC then you can download a casino to your machine, which gives you access to the best graphics and features and a super-smooth experience. Usually the main casino client is downloaded, but not every single game (just think of all the different slots and how much room they would take). When you choose a game, this downloads in a few seconds and away you go. This is the model which has served online casinos and their players well for the last 15 years. While the games are getting better and better, this way of accessing them is still my favorite.

#2 – Tablet / Smartphone Apps: With the mobile revolution the opportunity to play casino games on the move has brought this form of entertainment to a whole new generation. Data-networks have reached the point where they are stable, and many players connect to their home wifi network to save on the 3G / 4G costs. Apps vary from simplified (graphically) versions to fully featured casinos. If you prefer you can register and manage your account via your laptop, then play when mobile.

#3 – Browser / Flash Casino Sites: Another alternative to downloading is to play ‘in browser’. These games are fully featured, and the latest browsers have overcome any propensity to freeze that plagued them in the past. I now prefer in-browser games to the full downloads for most sofware platforms.

#4 – Shared Platforms: Facebook is the big one here, though Zynga and many more social networking type systems are included. These are largely fun games, and not real gambling, however there are real money social casino games in the pipeline, with 888 leading the way. I am sure that this will be a growing area for the future and look forward to adding blog posts as well as in-depth coverage in this area of the site.

Online Casino Games – The Main Types Of Games You Can Play

The categories do merge together a little, and I have outlined the main types of online gambling games below with this in mind. Within each type of game there are many individual games, you will find overviews and videos of most of the key types here on High Tech Gambling.

#1 – Online Slots: This is a huge category all of its own. Slots take several forms, starting with traditional 3-reel slots games, going through video slots (many of which have cool feature rounds as well as multi-line play) and including innovative games loosely modeled on slots concepts. This is such a huge area that I have created a dedicated page for Slots Games Online. You'll find overviews of the major slots makers, guides to getting the most from individual games as well as pieces which focus on individual casinos within this category. I recommend US readers start with my US Slots Software page.

#2 – Table Games: This is the second major category of casino games and includes traditional favorites like blackjack, roulette, baccarat, Caribbean Stud and craps. Compared to a few years ago, the graphics and ‘playability’ of these games has improved a lot – keeping the old favorite gamblers pass times fresh and fun. I created a page which goes through the options and links to key guides for specific games - you can find it here

#3 – Video Poker: A cousin of online slots, video poker a US favorite and includes such favorites as ‘Deuces Wild’ or ‘Jacks or Better’. You will be surprised how far these games have come, with 100’s of variations and quirks keeping them fresh. Start with my Ultimate Guide to Video Poker.

#4 – Bingo / Scratchcard Games: There are plenty of games based on Bingo, scratchcards or wheel-of-fortune type concepts. These have evolved over the years and now include themes, cool graphics and sometimes fun feature rounds too.

#5 – Casino Tournaments: These can be based on Slots or Blackjack and involve competing with your fellow gamblers in a knockout format. Great fun and a lot of play for a small buy-in, the best thing of all about casino tournament games is that you can grab a big win if you are the last player standing. My dedicated casino tournament games page gives you strategy tips and advice for getting the most from this game format.

Casino Games – Deals Which Online Gamblers Can Take Full Advantage Of!

If you love online gambling games then you should be taking advantage of bonuses ranging from free spins on slots apps, to deposit matches (100% is the standard, though you can get even better deals) through the main different types of loyalty scheme, which reward you for your play with more bonuses, cash rewards or even gadgets.

I have created a page dedicated to the best casino bonus deals which compares what is on offer at the different sites. One thing I will say here is that you should really not be playing without some kind of extra incentives in place… Remember, online casino gambling is a competitive area, and there are lots of operators who would be happy to give you incentives to play with them instead of their rivals!
