A Guide to Game Selection at Online Casinos
In today's online casino world, game collections start in the couple of dozens and can go as big as 10,000 or more.
This will probably include slots, virtual table games and maybe a live casino. But there's also bingo. Crypto games. Dozens of types of slots. Lottery games. Live casino game shows. And loads more!
With that much variation it's sometimes hard to know what a good collection is. That's why we've assembled this guide to game selection at online casinos.
We'll go through everything you need to know about game selections. That includes:
- How to know a good collection when you see one
- Examples of top games and developers, so you can quickly pick out the good ones
- What makes a unique online casino game selection, such as crypto focused or exclusive games
What Makes a Good Game Selection
At the bare minimum, any decent online casino should have 50-plus slot games and a dozen or so virtual casino table games.
A live casino game lobby, with HD streamed live tables and dealers, is also basically standard in today's market!
A very good selection will have:
500+ slots, across all types of spinning reel games and from a few different developers
A hundred or so virtual casino games including video poker, blackjack, roulette, baccarat and others
A live casino selection with 50 or more titles. Such as the latest live game shows from a developer like Evolution, Pragmatic Play or Playtech
Some other kinds of unique games, like virtual keno, craps or blockchain powered crypto games. This is optional really, but always fun to see some experimentation!
For some specific names we recommend looking out for in any casino collection, here's a list of some top-tier global online casino game developers:
Real Time Gaming
Big Time Gaming
IGT, or International Gaming Technology
If you see any one or more of these in a casino's game collection, you should be onto a winner. Some casinos, you'll even find all of their games in one place!
Lastly, make sure to check your casino has a well-organized game collection. 10,000+ games are basically useless if they're only in alphabetical order with no search function!
A great collection will have several search, filter and favorite functions so you can find your top title or look for new games in no time!
Making Your Game Selection: Choosing the Casino Game for You
This is a tough one, as it's all subjective really.
But - broadly? Virtual and live casino table games are slower paced and methodical, with less of a chance for big wins from a small bet. But if you play consistently might slowly up your bankroll!
Slots pack in a mile a minute gameplay and the potential for big wins. Off of tiny bets in some cases.
They're also easier to play, in general. Although, if you get some understanding of slots, it can help you pick out the good ones. But that's another topic entirely!
If you like the biggest online casino prizes, slots are also the way to go. You'll find multimillion dollar prizes on the biggest progressive jackpots.
