What are the Best Games to Play at Online Casinos?

If you’re something of a novice to online gambling, choosing the best game with the highest likelihood of success can be a daunting task. Although many people favor slots as the “safest” and easiest way to go, table games in fact provide better odds. Most people think the big casino sites are the best but you can often have better luck at similar casinos and their partner sites.

Here are a few tips to guide you on the top five games to play online:


The main advantage of blackjack is that you are only playing against the dealer and not competing with seasoned gamblers. The only requirement is that your cards must amount to a higher number than the dealer BUT remain under 21, hence the alternative name of “21”. Blackjack usually offers the highest odds of winning at most online casinos, with a typical house edge as little as 1 percent.


This game is fast-paced and can intimidate new players, but it’s fairly easy to learn and the odds are good at 50-50.  A player known as the shooter rolls two dice against the back wall.  If he rolls a  ‘7’ or ‘craps out’ on this come-out roll, the betting ends. It’s vital to learn the terms, such as “come-out roll” and print roll”  and the different types of bets. The main two to focus on are ‘Pass-line bet’ and ‘Don’t pass’ bet, which means players bet on the shooter winning and vice versa.


Roulette is probably the best known and easiest game to play. It gives you a quick thrill and can generate quick cash, but is it simply a game of chance or is there a level of skill involved? I believe it’s the former, but if you watch for a while, after several spins, you may get some insight into any trends or patterns that emerge. You can play it safe all night by simply betting on red or black (or odds and evens) and maintain near a 50-50 chance of winning. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, bet on a single number that offers far better odds of 36:1.

Video Poker

Poker has always been a popular card game, made more so by TV westerns and Las Vegas movies. Online or video poker is growing rapidly because if you have wi-fi you can play anytime, anywhere. You may find that you’re a natural or, if not, search the internet for tips and guidelines on the best strategies. Unibet online casino offers plenty of advice for ‘newbies’ and offers a wide range of games such as the popular Texas Hold’em and Omaha. The core game can be picked up fairly quickly, then it’s a case of practice and developing a feel for the cards, especially when to hold and when to fold!


Slot machines have been the backbone of casinos for decades, and there is a huge variety to choose from. While you’re unlikely to make your fortune, it’s easy, safe and requires very little skill or thought. Different symbols represent different amounts, so get to know the machines first and also look out for those offering special bonus rounds. Choose a machine with a high R.T.P. (Return to Player) and for a relatively small stake you might just hit the big time. If you’re lucky enough to do this, learn to walk away and quit while you’re ahead – the longer you carry on, the odds against you are likely to increase.
