March 28th, 2011

Gambling is a thrill, especially when you win! But nowadays you don’t need to go to Vegas to place a few bets. With online gambling, Vegas comes to you, with games such as Blackjack, Roulette, Slots, Poker, Backgammon and Online Pool.

Blackjack is one of the most widely played online casino games in the world. The basic rules of the game involve adding the value of an initial two card hand in hopes of being dealt a value of twenty-one, sounds simple enough, think you can win? Try your hand! Blackjack is played all over the world, and the reason it’s so popular, is because it’s fairly easy to play, but easy to win? You decide.

Roulette is a table based game, where players may choose to place bets on either a number, a range of numbers, the colours red or black, or whether the number is odd or even. The reason this is well loved is because you have so many options to pick from, so many different opportunities to win! If you want to play it safe, you can take a 50/50 chance on odd or even, or if you’re feeling lucky, you can gamble it all on that risky number of your choice and with any luck, the money will soon be rolling in.

Slots are one of the cheapest and fastest way to win money (and loose it!) out of all online casino games. All you can really do is click and hope you win. The appeal of this game is that it takes seconds, you don’t need to involve yourself in an in-depth session to get the thrill, one click and you’re away.

Poker comes in so many different varieties that you’re bound to find a game that suits you. The most popular has to be Texas Hold ‘Em, but if you’re a Pro and want something a little more complex, then try something like Five-card Stud to get the adrenaline pumping. From cents to dollars, however high you dare, and see how much you bring in. Definitely something for people who like a long game, and with today’s increasing interactive poker rooms, you can even talk to your fellow players if you wish. The settings are gradually becoming more and more real, leaving few reasons to travel miles for the gambling experience when you can get it in your bedroom, your lounge, wherever you like!

You can’t get more traditional then Backgammon, and it seems traditional works as more and more people are turning to Backgammon for a different gambling experience to the norm. Instead of simply being based on luck, there is some skill involved, and as with most gambling games, successful play requires a combination of luck and skill, because in Backgammon, a single dice roll can sometimes significantly change the outcome of the game.

And finally, Online Pool. Online Pool is sweeping the nation, because once again, the internet has made travelling miles to a pool house a thing of the past, and now, a new online feature means that you can now place money on your gaming skills! So if you think you’ve got the skills, and a bit of luck to boot, it’s worth a shot or two.

So if you think you’ve got the skills, and you’re feeling lucky, then don’t hesitate, this is just a very short list of the popular right now, there’s so much more out there, there’s something to suit everyone out there, whether you’re looking for a quick thrill, or a complex game. There’s a lot out there if you get looking!
