Fun facts about Casino games
- The first government to recognize a casino was II Ridotto, back in 1638 in Venice, Italy.
- World War II veteran Elmer Sherman won over $25 million playing slots! Back in 1989 he won $4.6 million from the Las Vegas Mirage casino, and he fulfilled his "life's dream" to win another large jackpot after winning $21.1 million while playing at the Cannery casino!
- The popular casino game Slots originally dispensed chewing gum, not money. Starting in 1888 the machines started to dispense coins, and the slots world has never looked back!
- American roulette, a highly popular casino game, is actually a bit harder than it's European cousin -the American version has 38 areas for the ball to land while the European version has 37. Hence the "00" on the American roulette wheel that is missing from the European version.
- While it's technically legal to count cards in Blackjack, casinos frown upon it. And perhaps no one knows that quite like the actor Ben Affleck who was banned for life after getting caught counting cards at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas.
- The curiously named casino game Craps got its name from early French settlers living in New Orleans. Originally called 'Crabs', the French speaking settlers played with English speaking players and, as is wont to happen, the language differences and the passing of time led to the game ultimately being called 'Craps'.
5 Reasons to Play Free Online Casino Games
Why should you look into free casino games to play in your free time? Well, we can give you five reasons why it's a fantastic idea to opt for the rewards gained from free betting games over gambling in real table games at Las Vegas or Atlantic City.
1. It promotes safe and responsible gaming
Perhaps the best benefit of playing free casino games is that you can experience the thrill of gambling without actually risking your money. All our games only involve “pretend” money. It's a good setup for people itching to play on a casino floor but who don't have spare cash to risk. Of course, the only drawback is that you don't win hard cash in a free casino game. But not losing your hard-earned money is a pretty good trade-off!
2. It's great for practice
Because online casino games mirror the real thing rather well, it's an excellent place to prepare for the real thing. For instance, you can familiarize yourself with the rules of Blackjack, Backgammon, or slot machines. It can also be helpful to refine your strategy in Texas Hold ‘Em. And because you're not risking real money, you can practice continuously until you get the hang of it.
Of course, there are certain things that a free casino game won't prepare you for, such as calming your nerves when faced with a big bet or figuring out if your opponent is bluffing in poker. Nevertheless, a free online game is an excellent preparatory step.
3. You have endless gaming options
Only in online casinos can you try any table or slot game you want, in almost any variety conceivable. Slot machines alone have unlimited variants, as do popular games like craps and backgammon. You can even sample international casinos and try out their versions of popular games. The only problem is that you can get overwhelmed with the endless options in front of you. But in our opinion, too many choices is a good problem to have!
4. You can play anytime and anywhere
The best thing about online casinos is that you can play anytime and anywhere. So whether sitting on your couch or taking a break at work, you can enjoy the action of online gambling even for just a few minutes a day. In addition, we offer free casino games, no download required. That means you can access it on any device – all you need is an Internet connection. Fancy playing slots while waiting on the subway? You can do that!
Plus, online casinos never close. So you can always play any time of the day or week, and there's no need to dress up for the occasion.
5. There's no waiting time
When you want to play on a casino floor, you often need to wait in line for a spot at the table. This is especially true for popular games like Texas Hold 'Em or slots. Online casino games don't have that problem. Virtual tables are endless, which means you can get in and finish a game in a matter of minutes.
Tips for Winning Free Casino Games Online
The topic of winning in casinos is a broad one. After all, everyone wants to make a fortune at the tables. So, to add to that growing body of knowledge, here are some tips on winning at an online casino (free games included).
First, learn the odds of the game you're playing – and figure out how to swing it in your favor. For example, you can have a 99.95% odds of winning in blackjack with the right strategy. Therefore, it's best to go deep into your favorite game and memorize some statistics, such as what the pros do when playing Texas Hold' Em.
Because of this, it's best to stick with games where skill plays a part because these are the only ones where you can "turn the tables" on the house, so to speak. On the other hand, slots are based mainly on chance, so you can never hope to outwit the house with a strategy (no matter how anyone claims it's possible). So if you want to win consistently, it's best to avoid games of chance, unless you genuinely enjoy playing them.
This comes to our next point – superstitions don't work. For example, some might claim they have a "pre-game" routine that guarantees a win, but that's not true. No one can control the results of a casino game (aside from cheating, of course) because it's all based on randomness and chance.
Now, while you're only playing with “pretend” money in a free casino game, it's still a good idea to treat it like it’s real. This is the only way that you can play the right way. Trust us, no one wants to play with someone who goes all-in all the time because there's no risk involved.
Good luck playing our free online casino games!
