See BettingTop10’s full report below on where and how to get the most bang for your buck when playing online casino games.

Playing Online Casino Games

Online Casino games offer great variation; you’re literally spoilt for choice. However, you should not feel overwhelmed by all the different game choices on offer. Which one do you choose to play?

To simplify matters, playing casino games online is almost identical as playing them in a brick-and-mortar casino in Atlantic City or Vegas. The major difference is that it’s simply you and your skill against the computer. The technology allows the game to be played faster, which translates into you having more chances to win or given the mobile play possible in the Garden State, the opportunity to play anywhere, anytime at a time and location that suits you. No more expensive and time-consuming travel to a land-based casino required.

Whilst we can’t choose the games for you to play, we can definitely assist in pointing you in the right direction in finding a game that best suits your individual personality, and playing style through our casino games list below.

Slots

Originally, slots games were only 3-reel, but now, you’ll find 3-reels, 5-reels & the radical & potentially life-changing progressive jackpot slot games. Simply spin the reels & check if the winning symbols are lined up as per the machines’ paytable.

Video Poker

With a low house edge & high RTP, Video Poker moves at your pace, no sitting around while other players to make their hands, in video poker its all about you.

Slingo

An original NJ invention, Slingo is an online game combining slots & bingo. Players usually have 20 turns to “spin” the numbers present on their bingo card. 5 Numbers appear on each spin & if they are found on the card, they are marked off.

Table Games

Traditionally, table games needed a dealer to control the game. Now, online casinos make it possible for you to enjoy table games like Roulette & Craps anytime of day, on-the-go or from the comfort of home on your own electronic device.

All your land-based casino table game favorites are available

Roulette

Roulette, whether played online or in a land-based casino is built upon the same simple principle. Correctly predict & wager where the silver ball will finally land (correct color, number or group) on the spinning roulette wheel makes you a winner!

Craps

Place your wagers on the results of the roll of a pair of dice – Craps is one the games with the best odds for players with a house edge of less than 1% and simple rules; roll a 7 or 11 to win, with more easily understood permutations possible.

Card Games

A range of card games are available to NJ’s online players and are an attractive option given their generally low house edge and tendency to be more skilled-based rather than luck-based games.

Blackjack

Popular for its low house edge and more chances to win, beat the computerized dealer in Blackjack by scoring closest to 21(Blackjack). The catch – you cannot ‘bust’ and have your hand value exceeding 21, meaning an automatic loss of the round.

Baccarat

The classic game made popular by James Bond; Baccarat requires little skill from players. Simply choose your card & cross your fingers that your result selection is correct. You have 3 outcome choices;

  • the dealer wins
  • the player wins
  • a tie

Keno

Keno is a lottery-like game, where online players usually wager by selecting numbers from 1 to (frequently) 80. In online casinos, cards are often used instead of numbers for more dynamic play. Like online slots, each keno game has its own paytable.

Bingo

Players mark-off their online bingo cards or numbers (or set the gaming site to do so automatically) as they are called. Each player receives a random set of numbers to equalize winning their chances. Be the first to mark off your numbers to win.

Poker

Most online casinos offer poker games where you can play multiple hands at once, & appear as if you are playing at an electronic poker table; not a live poker room where you are dealt by a real dealer, and you play against other players.

Live Games

Live Dealer Games are for players who long for the feeling of playing in Vegas or Atlantic City and wants to feel the atmosphere of real casino play. Live dealer casino games involve a real dealer hosting the game from a casino gaming table in real time, viewed via live streaming video. Players can make betting decisions on-screen, and can communicate with the dealer. Usually, Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat options are offered for live play.
