Popular Online Games



If you decide to gamble online, you have plenty of options when it comes to the type of game and the number of casinos available. If you'll find it at a brick and mortar place, you'll most likely find it on the web somewhere, too. Playing online lets you try out a game you might be too shy to sample in person.

Table Games



Almost every table game offered at land-based casinos has an online version. Roulette, craps and blackjack are just some of the many available. When you play craps online, you place a wager on whether the person rolling the dice will get the right numbers or not. If you decide to go with roulette, you make a bet on a number or series of numbers. You win if the wheel stops on one of the numbers you picked. The goal in online blackjack is the same in real life, you want to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over.

Lottery Games



You can also choose to play games such as Bingo or Keno online. In both, a series of numbers are chosen. To get "bingo," the numbers chosen need to match the numbers on your card in a row. In Keno, you pick a series of numbers before playing. If your numbers are called out, you win.

Lotto games and table games are just a few of the options available at web-based casinos. You can also try video versions of poker or online slot machines. The type you choose depends on your experience and your preferences.
