How to Choose the Right Casino Game

If you’re just getting started in the online casino world, then choosing a game can seem a little daunting. Most casinos have hundreds, if not thousands, of online casino games and finding the perfect fit for you can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

We’ve put this guide together to help you decide whether to go for the best online slots, table games, or other casino games. Here’s how to choose the game that suits you the best.

Know your interests

First things first, it’s incredibly important to know what you are looking for when choosing the perfect game. Decide what it is that you want to get out of your experience. 

Are you looking for an interactive, challenging game that can take quite a long time to wrap up? Then have a look at things like poker or blackjack. However, if you’re there to rely on luck more than skill or looking for something quick and simple, then you should probably play online slots.

Knowing what you want from your online casino experience will make it easier for you to choose the kind of game you are going to enjoy the most.

Understand important terminology

Before you get into casino games, it’s essential that you understand the most important terminology that will influence the kind of game you play. Here are just a few terms that you should remember:

  • RTP: Return to Player Percentage, or RTP, is basically the likelihood of winning at a game based on the overall wins on that particular game. It’s calculated by the percentage of all the money wagered on the game that has been paid back to players. For example, if you bet £1 one hundred times on a slot game with 96% RTP, then you COULD expect £96 back. However, this isn’t guaranteed, as it is calculated over the long-term rather than per bet.
  • House edge: The house edge is, in essence, the opposite of the RTP. It is the percentage returned to the venue for all bets placed on a specific game over time.
  • Volatility: Volatility is a term used to assess the risk of a casino game and its payouts. There are generally three different types of volatility: Low, medium, and high. Low volatility offers frequent wins but in smaller amounts. Medium offers relatively frequent wins with slightly higher amounts. High volatility games don’t pay out very often, but when they do, the win is usually significant.

Know your budget

Whenever you decide to play casino games, it’s important that you do so in a responsible way. You should always set your budget before you play and ensure that you are using money from an entertainment budget that you don’t need for any essentials.

Once you know your budget, it will be easier to decide what kind of games you can play. Most games have a minimum bet limit, and this could impact what games you choose. So if you have a £20 budget for your gaming session, there’s no point in choosing a game that has a £10 minimum bet, as you will only get two games out of it at most. If you have a limited budget, it’s best to choose games like online slots that have a £0.05 minimum bet.

Know your casino games

Before deciding what game you want to play, it’s also important to know as much as you can about the different games on offer at your casino of choice. Here is a quick overview of the most popular casino games that you can choose from:

Online slots

Slot machines are the backbone of the casino industry, and you would recognise them as the old-style fruit machines found in brick and mortar casinos. They are by far the most popular games in online casinos and for good reason! There are literally thousands of themes, designs, payouts, and other things to choose from when it comes to slots. 

They are incredibly simple to play; all you have to do is press the button to spin the reels and then rely on a little luck. The outcome is determined by an RNG (random number generator) that ensures every person gets a fair shot at the jackpot, mobile casino big prize, and bonuses that are often found in slots games.

Choose the game that you identify with the most, whether it’s the theme, graphics, gameplay, minimum bet, or jackpot size.


Blackjack remains one of the most popular games in all casinos. It has one of the lowest house edges out of all the casino games, and this makes it a tempting choice for many players. However, blackjack is also one of those games where strategy and understanding are important. 

So, if you don’t already know how to play blackjack, but you would be keen due to the small house edge, simple gameplay and relatively short game time, then the best thing to do is learn as much as you can about blackjack strategies before you put money down.

Poker is another one of the top choices for players. This is an excellent option for players looking for something a little more interactive and mentally challenging. You can choose to play against the casino or against other players who are online.

There are so many different poker variations available that you will never get bored, and you’ll constantly be learning. Poker, more than any other casino game, comes down to skill and knowledge, however. It’s important that you know when to hold, fold, bluff, and more, in order to have a successful poker experience in the long term.


Nothing much beats the rush of waiting to see what number the ball lands on in the roulette wheel. In online casinos, the number that the ball lands in is normally determined by an RNG; however, some online casinos offer live roulette, where an employee spins the wheel in real-time.

Roulette is a good mix between luck and skill. You can never determine where the ball will land, but you are in control of how you bet to cover different numbers. For example, you could go with odds or even numbers and up your chances of winning – but your payout will be smaller. Or, you could choose individual numbers, which is riskier but will have a more handsome payout.
