Best Online Casino Guide


Other Online Casino Games

There is, it has to be said, a vast array of games on offer at the average online casino these days.

And we get the message from you, the player, that it can be overwhelming sometimes.

Just a brief look at the number of new slots that have come out from one developer alone (NetEnt) paints a pretty picture – we’ve had Aliens, Wonky Wabbits, Wet n’ Wild, South Park, Twin Spin, Gonzo’s Quest and Creature From the Black Lagoon, all of them over the last few months.

However, fear not, we exist to bring a little clarity and method to the madness!

Actually all these games can be grouped into 3 categories straight off the bat.

These are: Slots, which are the same as the standup games of old where you put a coin in and press the buttons, just with a far more sophisticated and hi-tech twist.

Second there are the ‘table games’ which would include (but are not limited to) games like Baccarat, Roulette and BlackJack, since they are all played over a ‘table’ with a dealer or croupier overseeing things.

Then there are online Poker rooms, where you play against other, real players as you would face-to-face.

These 3 categories can be subdivided into Live versions, high roller (playing for high stakes) and low roller (low stakes) versions, and a few other subgroups, but essentially that’s it!

You can add sports betting, by the way, but this is quite a distinct category, which by no means all online casinos carry.

And there is a fourth, quite small (but by no means insignificant) group, actually.

For want of a better phrase, we call them ‘other online casino games’!

It’s true, simply because they don’t fit into any neat category!

But what are the popular other casino games out there?

Well, they are too numerous to list here, but here are some of the most popular ones:

Red Dog Progressive is a popular game from NetEnt, available at quite a lot of sites, and revolves around you betting on a spread of cards.

More popular still is Pontoon, which is related to BlackJack (in fact you could argue that these 2 are table games – it’s just that casinos often place them in their ‘other games’ section online).

A big component is that of scratchcards. These are identical in principle to the scratchcards you can buy in a supermarket, kiosk, newsstand etc. but are virtual - you simply 'scratch' the numbers you want online, thus none of that annoying silver stuff to blow away afterwards!

There are some even simpler variants that you might find when you play other casino games.

These can include very simple graphical games, which might come down to random chance, or equally might involve some skill in, for instance, shooting open boxes to unlock prizes.

There are even straight heads-or-tails coin toss games out there for you to play!

On the other hand, there are some more cerebral, quiz-based games as well, if you fancy testing your knowledge for money.

Where to play other casino games online?

The answer really is the same as where you’d play slots and table games – in other words at the best casinos.

We list only casinos which meet our stringent requirements in terms of, not only games selection, but also reputation and statistics when it comes to speed and ease of making withdrawals, security, payment providers, return to player stats, big wins, languages offered, quality of customer services and more.

Naturally some casinos are going to have more in the way of the, shall we say, more obscure games, than are others; Bet-at-home, for instance, has an admirable selection for the more off-the-beaten-track-oriented player, but as noted, all you need to do is click on the ‘other games’ tab at an online casino to quickly peruse what’s on offer.

It’s also worth seeing if you can play other casino games free; most casinos will allow you to play for free at least for a limited time, and often more, so that’s a great way to get a feel for an unfamiliar game and its rules and idiosyncracies, before committing to making a deposit or even deciding if it’s for you at all!
