Playing the casino games: Which games to play at the online casino?
 When you download the online casino software and install it on your computer, you are greeted with hundreds of different games the second you open the virtual casino lobby. So which games to play at the online casino? Of course, we cannot give you a definite answer to that - just as there are many different people in the world, there are many different casino games created to cater to almost everyone. Some people prefer the blackjack tables, which others find playing blackjack to be a mundane and slow experience and prefer the excitement of the fast-paced slot machines. And you personally, just like anyone else, are likely to have favourite "go-to" game at the casino.

 Of course, some casino games offer better winning opportunities than others, but at the end, the ultimate choice of which games to play at the online casino fall solely on your preferred style of gambling. We will look into each of the main forms of casino gambling games and let you make up your own mind about which one to play.

 In general, we have divided the casino games into three different groups and we will look further into each one of them with follow-up articles, which you can find at our main guide. Here we are just going to outline the basic division of the casino games and give you a sense of which one you may want to play and explore further by reading our guides. The three different casino games styles are:

 No.1 - Table Games (Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Baccarat, Pai Gow, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud)

 The tables games are very easily to spot at both the land casinos and the online casinos - they always involve the use of a table. And this is where all the similarities between the table games end. As you can see, the table games include some of the most popular casino games in the world, such as Poker and Blackjack. Some table games are played with cards, while others require dice or a wheel and a ball. One thing you can say about the table games - they are hardly boring. Another thing one can mention about them is that if played at the local casino, there are some rules and etiquettes that must be followed. If you are reading our Casino Gambling 101 guide with the aim to improve your land-based casino game, we have a whole article dedicated to the casino etiquette.

 No.2 - Video Machine Games ( video slots and video poker)

 Despite the movie references to the table games (the antagonist will always play a table game of some sort, either blackjack or baccarat, sometimes roulette), the video slots and the video poker machines are the most popular games at the casinos. Yes, you would never see a movie character discussing deeds over the one-armed bandit, but if you have ever been to a real casino you will see that more than 80% of the casino floor is occupied by slot machines and video poker. There is a reason for this and that reason is simple - most people prefer the video machine games over the table games. And when it comes to the online casinos - the video slots are the king. At the online casinos the slots are not only the most advanced graphical feature you would ever see, but more often than not offer much better odds to the punter as compared to the table games. There are some video slots at the online casinos so loose - people have created blogs, forums and websites specifically for those video slot games.

 No.3 - Specialty games (Keno, Bingo, Scratch Cards, others)

 These are games which do not fit in any of the two groups above. You can play Keno at the casino either sitting at a table or at a machine; the same applies to Bingo or scratch cards. Of course, if you prefer the online casinos, all the games will be played via the casino software, but that's beside the point. Unless you are extremely bored or you are a big fan of Keno or Bingo, we recommend you avoid those games as the offer the worst odds at the casinos.
