Australia’s favourite online casino games

Online casino games are a perfect replacement for offline casino games. Thanks to the Internet, players don’t have to leave the comfort of their home to play. All they need to do is join a casino website and start playing for free or for real money.

The games can be played on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or even a desktop computer, provided that a gadget has a stable internet connection. Some of the most popular online casino games found at online casinos include slots, roulette, baccarat, poker, blackjack, video poker, Pai Gow, Sic Bo, and many others.

Play Casino Games for free

Free games are the exact opposite of real money games, as players do not have to spend a penny to play. Apart from the fun they generate, these games are meant to help players learn their strategies, game rules and upgrade their gambling skills. Once they understand how the games work, they can go further and play for real money. Of course, playing free casino games does not lead to any cash winnings, but it does help the player learn some important tricks to make them approach real money games with confidence and even have a chance of winning.

In most cases, online casinos do not require players to register or download software in order to play games for free. All requirements have been simplified to encourage players to spend more time at a casino. However, registration is required to play for real money, as this involves cash transactions. It is important to note that not all casino titles have a free practice mode.Each online casino tends to have its own selection of games that can be played for free. Although most casino sites offer free games, some sites prefer not to do it. Thus, the choice of casino could be an important factor.

Casino games for real money

Winning money is the purpose of playing for real money. However, this comes at a price. Unlike the free play mode, playing for real money involves risking real cash. Yes, no player can completely avoid losing money while gambling, but certain measures can be taken to minimise the chances of losing as much as possible.

This is where the importance of responsible gambling comes into play. First of all, it is necessary to set a gambling budget. This assures players that they will lose what they can afford to lose.

Another tip is to know when to quit. It is advisable for a player to quit while they are ahead. Yes, Sean Connery won 17 times on three occasions, but that may never happen again. Even the smallest win is enough to stop. A streak of losses is a sign to quit, as chasing losses can only lead to frustration and stress, and there is no guarantee that the player will win in the long run. As they say, there is always another chance.

Last but not least, playing while intoxicated is strongly discouraged. A sober mind allows you to think straight and make right decisions.

Casino Games Instant Play

Online slots

Instant play, also known as no-download casinos, is a version of online casino that can be played through a web browser without the need to download any additional software. This type of casinos offers almost the same gaming experience as their download counterparts. Players can enjoy slots, video poker and table games, just as they would if they download the software. Instant games can be accessed via any device with an internet connection, including a computer, smartphone and tablet. Since instant casinos do not require software installation, players can also save space on their devices.
To play at an instant casino, you need to have Adobe Flash Player on your gadget. Nowadays, many computers come with Flash, while some browsers such as Chrome have  Adobe Flash (that is) built-in. Some instant play casinos may require Java or HTML5 which work with almost all operating systems and are a key ingredient in building modern casino sites. Unlike in the past, when instant casinos had poor graphics and slow software, modern instant casinos offer superb graphics with rare instances of internet distractions.

Downloadable offline casino games

The internet offers thousands of casino games that players can enjoy in instant play mode, but a device must be connected to the internet. For casino enthusiasts who do not wish to be continuously connected to the Internet, there are many downloadable games, such as bingo, slots and blackjack, that can be played offline.

Playing casino games offline means playing in a completely different environment. As the phrase “Internet distractions”, common in instant play mode, is something like foreign vocabulary in the world of offline casino games.

Live casino games

Live casino games are an example of the latest innovation in online casino technology. Unlike traditional online casino games where gamblers play against a computer, this category of games involves playing against a human being – the dealer. The game is broadcast(ed) live as it’s happening.

Although live casino games have conquered the world of video gaming, they have various disadvantages compared to online casino games. This is due to the massive and expensive technology that casino companies use to support live casino games. Casino games that already exist in a live format include baccarat, poker, Sic Bo, roulette and blackjack.

History of online casino games

Casino history

Online casino gaming began after the 1994 enactment of the Free Trade and Data Processing Act in Antigua and Barbuda. This law allowed the Caribbean nation to license online casinos. What followed was the emergence of Microgaming, a software company that created the first online casino, The Gaming Club, in 1994.

At first, only a limited number of games were available at online casinos and the games were mainly based on the most popular games found in brick and mortar casinos. They included classic slot machines and table games, as well as keno and some video poker titles. The games were a great success and the developers had to increase the number of titles in their collections.
