When it comes to betting online it is not just sporting events which have seen a huge increase in popularity. Online casino games are one of the most popular forms for betting. In this article we are going to look at some of the most popular games and some advice from BettorMind on how you can approach these games the right way.

Popular Casino Games

Blackjack – One of the easiest and popular casino games available online. Players are playing against a deal with the aim of the game to finish as close to a score of 21 as possible. The cards use their numerical value with the exception of Aces which players can choose to be used as a one or eleven and the face cards which count as a score of ten. In order to win you must be closer or equal to 21 points.

Roulette – A roulette wheel consists of numbers usually from 0-36. Apart from the 0 which is commonly green, the remaining colours are split into red and black. Players place bets on which number or colour they think the ball will land on. This is a very fast paced game and players can place bets on multiple outcomes during each spin of the wheel.

Slot games – One of the most popular choices of games is slot machines. There are so many different types of game available to players the opportunities are endless. As with traditionally slot machines you may find in land-based casinos players pay per spin of the slot with a variety of different outcomes available and all with different values. The pay out vary from game to game and in value depending on their difficulty to achieve.

Chance Vs Skill

One of the most important factors to consider when betting on an online casino is the effect of your chance vs your skill. Some games like blackjack have an element of skill and strategy which over time you can improve on. Having an understanding on the way to play the game and actions to take will improve your chances of winning compared to a player who has never played the game before. With games such as Roulette and more so slot machines, skill has less of an impact on the outcome of your bets. This is because the games will have consistent odds for each action. For example, in standard roulette the odds of picking the correct number are 35/1 and those odds are the same for every spin of the wheel.

BettorMind Advice

Research – With so many varieties of games available, it is important you research what you are betting on, just like you might do when betting on sports. The more understanding you have of the games the better informed you will be and be much better placed to make the right decisions when it comes to your betting.

Staking – As mentioned above, the impact of chance vs skill in many casino games does affect your chances of winning. Therefore, you should ensure the stakes you are using are within the budgets you have set yourself. When playing games like roulette and slots, each bet can last less than a couple of seconds to settle. This high frequency is something to consider as it will impact on your budget and staking.

Online Casino games are enjoyed by many players. How you approach them should be different to how you might approach sports betting. Please make sure to check out the advice in this article as well as our other guides at BettorMind.
