Whether our personalities have anything to do with it, or it is merely a matter of choice, is still up for discussion, but when it comes to choosing a favourite online casino game, most players fall into one of two categories: slot games or table games. Slot games run purely on the luck factor, whilst table games do involve a certain measure of skill, some more so than others. The most popular online casino games involve a combination of the two categories mentioned: some players prefer leaving it all to luck, whilst other players prefer to have some measure of control over the outcome of a game.
Whatever tickles your fancy, it’s bound to be one or more of the games listed below.
Blackjack is a game of strategy, and a very popular one at that, especially so amongst players from the Philippines. The players and the dealer will receive two cards each. The players’ cards are traditionally dealt face-up, whilst the dealer’s cards will consist of one card being dealt face-up, and the other card facing downwards. Blackjack is a banking game, and the aim in its simplest form is to reach a total score of 21. A score of 21 constitutes a win, and cards will be requested from the dealer until such time as 21 is reached. In the event that the values of the cards tally to more than 21, the player will automatically lose.
Poker is certainly one of the most popular online casino games. A large selection of variations of the game can be played online. Essentially, the winning hand will be the player holding the highest value hand, alternatively the last remaining player to not fold during the game.
Poker has always been a highly popular game as far as card games go, and the online versions of the game at desktop and mobile casinos have followed suit.
Most people would be able to recognise a Roulette Wheel without too much effort. The wheel is marked with numbers ranging from 0 up to 36. Bets may be placed on a variety of combinations, i.e. even numbers, odd numbers, the colour red, the colour black, etc. The wheel is spun and the ball will land at random in a specific spot, determining whether the bet has been a successful one, or not. Players from the Philippines have happily made the transition from playing at land-based casinos, to indulging in the online versions of Roulette.
Online slot games have managed to gather a cult following of super-loyal regular players, online. This applies not only to online games in the Philippines, but to the world over. Slot games are rationally developed around a specific theme. This makes for highly popular play. Players have the opportunity to enjoy entertaining games based on a theme of their choice, for e.g. their favourite movies, bands, holidays – the list is endless. Online slot games are purely based on luck, and require no additional skills on the part of the player.
