New Online Casino Games – Who Needs New Casino Games?

attract customers. In gambling business it is games first of all. Different places offer different games, but the leading ones are poker, blackjack, and roulette. Less popular and therefore rare in gaming houses are game of craps and baccarat. There are also about 10 special games in the world. However there are far more games in casino. Where do they come from? They appear due to different things:

1. Inventions

Every year about 2-3 new author games appear on international exhibitions. In the beginning they attract casino operators by their uncommonness very much, who examine them, read incomprehensible rules carefully and try to play these now-how. But their interest gradually disappears. In fact these games are not interesting and sometimes can be difficult to understand not just for an ordinary player, but casino representative as well. Also many games require special equipment. Even if the owner places a table for such game, the customers of casino will be disappointed by it: “Too difficult, boring, not interesting”. And frequently: “No chance”.

2. Casino inventions

From time to time the owner or employees of gaming houses invent quite interesting games. However, they have no future as well because of the above mentioned reasons: “I don’t want to spend money to learn new games”.

3. Innovations, based on the change of existing games

In this case, to think of a new game, it is enough to change the rules of already existing one.

So what makes gaming houses to introduce new games in a casino? Are modern players bored with original version of roulette, blackjack and poker? Not at all. Except some kinds of poker, that are popular nowadays due to really interesting innovations, all new games are only small marketing help in promotion actions of casino. They do not have any playing effect.

If a game is too complicated and casino wins a lot, players leave it at once. It is not interesting for the customers to play too simple and ineffective games. Far more attractive for them are games with the history, such as roulette, queen of the games; poker, having many combinations; intellectual blackjack, having as many or even more combinations as poker games. Besides, if an online casino offers bonuses in a form of free cash, these bonuses turn the house edge that normally exists in these casino games into a player edge over the house. That’s why online casinos started disallowing some games form qualifying for the wagering requirements on their bonus offers. Online casinos that disallow blackjack from their bonus offers lose a lot of good customers. There are still many casinos that disallow blackjack from the wagering requirement qualifying play, but a player should always look at which games these casinos do allow, and play only if the house edge will be small enough on the allowed casino games to provide good money value for the bonus.

There is an opinion, that for the majority of players it is not so important what to play. The main thing for them is an atmosphere of a game. For example, roulette – people are trying to get to the bottom of this game for ages. Naturally it is easy to join them and try your luck.

As a result it appears that the same games such as roulette, blackjack, poker are popular in casino, and all the rest ones keep manager happy that there is “a variety of games” there. That is not bad at all; the main thing is that both players and employees of casino are satisfied.

Mobile Casino Games – Part One

Nowadays hardly anybody will be surprised at online games. But the technology forges ahead, now you can play not only at home, but almost in any point of the world. I am talking about mobile casino games. Everybody has a mobile phone (smartphone, PDA, Palmtop Computers), the coverage is increasing, so the possibilities for playing are impressive. Let us have a look what mobile casinos and mobile poker rooms offer us.

Mobile casinos entered the market of mobile games earlier, therefore, there is much more variety here now. Mobile casino games are offered by gambling technology specialists Spin3 (a company that is associated with major casino games software provider “Microgaming”), as well as “Play Tech”. So far only a limited number of online casinos with the software of these companies offer mobile casino games, but their number is gradually growing. There are a number of mobile casinos with their proprietary software affiliated to large online gaming companies, as well as independent mobile casinos. It should be stated at once that it is better to play in mobile casinos, which are represented by famous and well known online casinos: it is more reputable, more convenient, more depositing and winning withdrawal options, reliable customer support etc.

Starting to play mobile casino games a player has to open an account in a corresponding online casino. Sometimes it is possible to do it through a mobile phone, but it is more convenient to do it through a computer, the internet and mobile account are the same as a rule. The majority of deposit methods, in particular, all the electronic payment systems, will also work only through a computer client, though, the player can make a deposit from a card directly by means of a mobile phone. Downloading your favourite casino games on a mobile it is also convenient to have a computer at hand – complete a special registration form on the casino web site, enter your phone number, select a country and a game and receive an SMS- message on your phone with the direct link for downloading.

Again, in principle, it is possible to open a WAP version of the casino using the mobile and download games directly from there, but it is less convenient. In contrast to an online casino where you can download the whole package of games, games are downloaded here one by one, and the choice is not so wide, approximately ten games: black jack, baccarat, roulette, video poker, keno and various slots. The games are not very big, about 200-300 Kb. It is not difficult to guess that there are certain requirements for your mobile phone. As a matter of fact the majority of contemporary phones meet the mobile casinos requirements. On the sites of mobile casinos it is possible to check whether they will work on your phone.

The game is downloaded, you have a login and a password, the money is on the account and you can start playing. I will only make a remark that for safety purposes in contrast to online casino in mobile phones it is impossible to record the password, therefore, if you lose a phone, casino money will not be lost.

Strategy Or Pure Luck? Three Types of Online Casino Games Revealed!

Casinos have been places of fun and excitement ever since they first opened their doors hundreds of years ago.

The thrill of the games of chance and the appeal of the enormous jackpot prizes, attract millions to the gambling capitals of the world every month.

Since the creation of the Internet, online casinos offering online casino games have known incredible growth and have become just as important as their land based counterparts.

There are many different types of online casino games to choose from, each of them with their own characteristics and exciting elements of luck and sometimes skill and strategy.

With the necessary practice, some casino games can even be played professionally.

There are three types of online casino games:

1. Table Games
2. Electronic Gaming Machines
3. Random Number Games

Table Games

Table games usually are played with cards or are based around dice. Well known examples of Table games are: Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Baccarat and SicBo.

While there are strategies which could allegedly enhance your winning odds ever so slightly in pure chance games like SicBo and Craps (dice games) and Baccarat (card game), it is a fact that these games are entirely based on luck.

On the other hand, practice, study and some good strategies can seriously enhance your Poker and Blackjack skills and game, and increase your winning odds in these popular card games.

Electronic Gaming Machines

In western casinos there are two types of Electronic Gaming Machines which you can find in almost any online and land based casino: slot machines and video poker games.

The slot machines are the most popular games in casinos throughout the world and online alike. They are easy to understand, incredibly fun to play, and for players visiting a land based casino, the machines are less intimating to engage with than the dealer and other players at the actual casino tables.

Video Poker games are based on a five-card draw poker game, and are (in land based casinos) played on a computerized console (resembling a TV-screen).

Winning on the Slots is solely based on luck, but in a Video Poker game you can compute the probability of winning, based on the cards you’ve been dealt from a simulated deck of cards, and with the option to choose which card to hold, there is a certain element of skill in the game, which makes it even more fun.

Random Number Games

As their name clearly reveals, Random Number Games are based upon the selection of random numbers, either from a computerized random number generator or from other gaming equipment, and are played at a table or online (e.g. Roulette), or on a console, online or through purchase of paper tickets or cards (e.g. Keno and Bingo).

While there are roulette strategies out there which may indeed help you win, in practice they are extremely risky and your losses are likely to far outweigh your winnings. So it’s best to have luck on your side at the roulette table.

Good luck is also needed when playing Keno and Bingo. It seems that the only strategy that could possibly work, if you are considering playing these games in which winning is solely based on luck, is doing some good deeds and let Karma do the rest.

Whether you like the sheer excitement and adrenaline of waiting to find out if you’ll get lucky and hit the jackpot, or you master the art of bluffing and possess excellent strategic insight, online casino games will whisk you away from the daily grind and keep you entertained for hours at a time.
