The best online casino games

Online gambling companies have a lot of games. The lowest number in a venue’s catalogue is hundreds, the highest goes well beyond ten thousand pieces. A good online gambling site will most likely have from a thousand to a few thousand games. In this article, we talk about the best online casino games and things associated with them.

The best casino games

Any decent online gambling house should incorporate these kinds of games into their catalogues.

Slot machines

Video slots are arguably the most popular games in arcades around the world. This is due to several factors:

  • They are very simple and play can begin immediately, even without having to study winning combinations, betting options and rules, as they are programmed into the interface and all the player actually does is press the button to spin the reels and hope for a lucky strike. Of course, you can customise the game options to suit your preferences and wallet, but no one can deny the simplicity of slot machines.
  • Modern slot machines are very appealing in their visual and sound design. As such, they attract gamers with an atmosphere of beauty, excitement and potential high wins, which, when they occur, are accompanied by flamboyant, flashy graphics that many gamers enjoy.
  • Video slots are very diverse in their themes. Therefore, every person can find something to their liking in online slot machines. Examples of themes in modern slot machines are Ancient Egypt/Rome/other civilisations, mythology and culture (Greek, Norse, Roman, Mayan, Aztec, Asian, Incan, Viking, Medieval, etc. ), adventure, exploration, pirates and treasure, underwater world, Wild West, fantasy, magic, fairy tales and folklore, animals and wildlife, aerospace and sci-fi, Hollywood, music, sports and athletics, food and culinary, retro and vintage, horror, Halloween, superheroes, comics, romance, love, luxury and wealth, carnival and festivals, Las Vegas and casino lifestyle, safari and jungle, circus and its performers, science and technology.


This card game has become wildly popular because it’s simple, fast and provides an adrenaline rush in the same way as many other online casino games. The rules can be boiled down to two sections:

  • collect 21 points with card sides to win or
  • collect more than one dealer (casino) without exceeding 21.

There are also variants of blackjack with different rules, which allows it to appeal to a wider audience. And since the betting range is quite wide, depending on the specific gambling establishment, it will also attract more people who prefer


Roulette casino games online are often considered synonymous with the casino concept itself: they are vibrant, fast-paced and very elegant. The turnover of money at the roulette table is also huge. There are different versions of roulette, which mainly boil down to these three:

  • European (classic) – with 1 zero sector and a house edge of 2.70%.
  • French (with milder rules than European) with 1 zero sector, but 1.35% house edge due to a special rule ‘La Partage’ which halves the house edge.
  • American with 2 zero sections and a house edge of 5.26%.

There are hundreds of roulette games because they have different visual designs and can vary slightly in rules. So before you start playing a roulette game, make sure you familiarise yourself with them.

Video poker

It’s possible to play casino online poker in many online gambling halls, although in-person poker is also very popular. Poker is one of the few games where you can win millions of dollars playing it in real life. Video poker isn’t as wild, but it’s still about decent money – hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands of dollars.


Although Keno has a relatively high house edge, it’s a lot of fun and it’s not impossible to win even large sums of money. The idea of Keno is to guess as many numbers as possible from the row of decreasing numbers that occupy a field of 80 numbers (from 1 to 80).

In classic Keno, a player must define 7 numbers he/she wants and make a bet (typically, in online gambling houses it is possible to start with a bet of $0.1 and go all the way up to $100 per game round, but it would be a wise decision to look for specific betting ranges in each gambling establishment before starting the game).

When a game is initiated, the Random Number Generator (RNG) defines 20 numbers that must occur on the field. If any of them match the numbers a player has entered, you win. To win, you must guess a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 numbers. The winning table looks like this (for a bet of $1 for 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 correct guesses respectively):

  • $1
  • $2
  • $22
  • $422
  • $7,000

This is a geometric progression where each consecutive number starting from the second in the row represents the sum of the bet plus 20 to the power of 0, 1, 2 or approximately 3.

Many people play online casino Keno games because of the high prizes possible, the variety of bets they can adjust according to their bankroll, and the fast speed of the game, which can be automated without the need to press buttons each time to start a game.


Baccarat is a great alternative to blackjack. In this game, it is also necessary to total the value of the cards, but instead of 21, as in blackjack, it is necessary to total 9. Cards 2-9 have face value, 10s and face cards are equal to 0 and aces are equal to 1. The house edge varies from 1.06% to 1.46%, depending on the rules. Players can bet on a player, banker or tie.

Live dealer games – live dealers

Live dealer games are those online casino games where a live person replaces a machine’s random number generator. They are popular for several reasons:

  • Realism. These games provide a great immersion into the atmosphere of a real arcade, where only the screen of your device separates you from the surrounding reality and tangibility of a brick-and-mortar arcade.
  • Social interaction with a dealer increases the level of immersion in the game.
  • Transparency in a gaming process. Some people still believe that RNG is a scam and doesn’t truly represent the game’s results. While it is impossible to convince these people that they are wrong, it is possible to replace some RNG games with live dealer games so they are no longer afraid.
  • Variation. There are many online live dealer games where everyone can find something they like.
  • It’s easy to play these games anywhere, anytime.

Try before you buy. Try all new casino games for free

To make sure they like the game (or not), players like to try a game in a demo mode before they actually deposit money and use it to play that game. They do this with existing games and the new ones being added to the catalogues.

It’s worth noting that not all game providers offer the option to play in demo mode – some providers only allow play for money. We wouldn’t say this is a wise solution, as people don’t like to buy the cat in the bag. So when they don’t have a chance to familiarise themselves with the games in a free mode, they are most likely to leave a gambling establishment because they don’t want to pay to play online casino games they don’t understand.

How we rate online casino games

Although there are many different games in gambling halls, they can all be rated. To provide our readers with fair, thorough and objective game ratings, we stick to the following approach to rating:

1.Experience of the game. It contributes 40% of the weight to the rating. This criterion assesses the overall enjoyment and engagement with the game, including the smoothness of the gameplay, user interface design, sound effects, animations and immersion in the process. This criterion basically shows how exciting the game is based on a subjective opinion.

2.Goodness of RTP (25% contribution). The number we consider good starts with 95% RTP. Anything below that is not a good thing in a modern gambling market.

3.Innovativeness of the game. How many new or unexpected elements does a game have? How different is it from the others? We give this criterion a weight of 15%.

4.The quality of graphics and sound and their consistency with the nature and theme of the game (10% contribution).

5.Bonus features (both in-game and purchased). This criterion contributes the final 10% to the rating.

The best software providers and great graphics

Not all game providers focus on providing excellent graphics in their games. Some games aren’t about great graphics at all (like many roulette games where the only animation is the wheel spinning). That’s why we’ve compiled a list for you of 10 great game providers with three games each that have great graphics (just so you know, we also place the RTP indicator next to each game):

  1. NetEnt (Starburst, RTP: 96.09%, Gonzo’s Quest, RTP: 95.97%, Dead or Alive 2, RTP: 96.8%)
  2. Microgaming (Immortal Romance, RTP: 96.86%, Thunderstruck II, RTP: 96.65%, Avalon II: The Quest for the Grail, RTP: 95.92%)
  3. Playtech (Age of the Gods: King of Olympus, RTP: 95.98%, Gladiator Jackpot, RTP: 91.46%, Great Blue, RTP: 96.03%)
  4. Betsoft (The Slotfather II, RTP: 96.6%, A Night in Paris, RTP: 96.5%, Good Girl Bad Girl, RTP: 97.79%)
  5. Evolution Gaming (Lightning Roulette, Dream Catcher, Monopoly Live) – these games do not have defined RTPs.
  6. Yggdrasil Gaming (Vikings Go Berzerk, RTP: 96.1%, Valley of the Gods, RTP: 96.2%, Jungle Books, RTP: 96.1%)
  7. Quickspin (Sakura Fortune, RTP: 96.58%, Big Bad Wolf, RTP: 97.34%, Eastern Emeralds, RTP: 96.58%)
  8. Thunderkick (Pink Elephants, RTP: 96.1%, Esqueleto Explosivo, RTP: 96.0%, Fruit Warp, RTP: 97.0%)
  9. Play’n GO (Book of Dead, RTP: 96.21%, Reactoonz, RTP: 96.51%, Fire Joker, RTP: 96.15%)
  10. Red Tiger Gaming (Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, RTP: 94.66%, Piggy Riches Megaways, RTP: 95.71%, Dragon’s Luck Megaways, RTP: 95.69%).

As you can see, there are many games on the list that have an RTP below 95% (which we’re not happy about, but these games have great graphics). It’s up to each player to decide whether or not they want to play games with an RTP below 95%.

Banking and customer service

Important criteria for assessing the gaming experience in this or that casino are the quality and completeness of banking services and customer service.

Banking services include:

  1. Deposit and withdrawal methods. In Denmark, a mix of local and global methods is considered a good solution.
  2. Transaction speed. Anything that is instant and executed in less than 1 business day for withdrawals is perfect, while only instant is perfect enough for deposits.
  3. Fees and limits. Since a casino business is profitable in its core business, taking fees and commissions from customers for transactions cannot be considered good. So, one should look for places that don’t charge customers for money in and out. Limits are another thing though – there may be limits on bets, deposits, withdrawals, account balances, bonuses and operating volume per month. Some of these limits are controlled by current iGambling legislation, while others are a matter of choice for gambling operators.
  4. Security and encryption. It is common to apply PCI DSS requirements to all banking transactions.

When it comes to the quality of customer support, the following features are useful:

  • customer support service presence
  • its quality
  • problem-solving ability
  • availability of useful resources, such as FAQ.

Fantastic bonus rounds and jackpots

Online gambling sites in Denmark can give their customers various bonuses (in amounts not exceeding DKK 1,000 each):

  • Bonus money
  • free spins, bets, rounds, rolls
  • adjusted prices for certain casino services (VIP participation, purchase transactions and bonuses, etc.)
  • remuneration for bringing a friend and for affiliate marketing.

Naturally, you should look for places where these bonuses are up to the maximum limit of £1,000 and where they have a wagering requirement that is as low as possible.

When it comes to jackpots, they can be cumulative (where you can win millions of kroner), which come from specific game providers and/or games, and regular, which come from individual games that can award tens of thousands of kroner. Danish legislation does not prohibit jack

Fair play

The principle of fair play is one of the cornerstones of the iGambling market worldwide. Online gambling venues need to ensure that they work:

  • Randomness in game outcomes according to the game mechanics
  • Transparent, clear and enforceable game rules
  • Player protection and responsible gambling (exclusion of minors, people on self-exclusion lists and people with gambling addictions who have installed self-limitations)
  • No cheating
  • Fair and impartial dispute resolution.

How many different casino games are there?

Estimating the exact number of casino games that exist in the world today is a very challenging task. If someone were to undertake this work, it would be close to a full-fledged scientific study that would require funding, staff, computer equipment and premises.

Roughly speaking, there are tens of thousands of gambling games in the world. They are made by around a hundred companies that supply these games to the iGambling market. Each company has dozens to hundreds of such games in their catalogues so far, and the release rate for each company is from 1 to a dozen new games every year. Video slots are represented in the largest selection.
