Great Casino Games Online

by on Jan.28, 2015, under Games Online

What features define a great casino game? Is it the intricacy of the graphics? Does the game play need to be fast and furious? Should the platform be secure and transparent? In fact, all of these metrics should be kept in mind. To better understand this concept, let’s take a glimpse at what many consider to be the most popular virtual games to enjoy.

Slot Machines

Forget about the mechanical versions; their online variants have become the talk of the entire gaming community. Sites such as Megafortune not only offer a good play, but jackpots can easily reach well over 500,000 euros. Paired with second-to-none graphics and trusted payment systems, slots have truly taken centre stage for many players.

Poker

Poker is one of the more traditional games available and its online counterpart is just as exciting. Once one learns the basic rules and strategies, hours of lucrative fun await. Not only are modern games much like their real-world sidekicks, but modern amenities such as the ability to interact with other players and even speak with a live dealer are added bonuses. For anyone who is searching for white-knuckle excitement, poker is a sure bet.

Bingo

Bingo has moved out of the community centres and into the comfort of our living rooms. One of the best aspects of the online version is that the rules are the same. As less strategy is involved than would be necessary in poker or blackjack, bingo is an ideal choice for those who are simply looking to have a bit of fun. Of course, there are some impressive jackpots that can be rewarded. Most major sites provide an ample selection of bingo games.

These are some of the platforms which are growing in popularity on a daily basis. By appreciating which ones are the most popular, that winning round may be closer than you think!

Getting Your Game On

by on Jan.23, 2015, under Games Online

Most of us like to have a good board game session every now and then, but it can be hard to get enough people together who know how to play the same game. After all, you don’t want to waste time explaining the rules over and over again! Getting online to play your favourite board game is a great way to get your fix as well as improving your skills and meeting new people. There are three main types of board game sites online.

Dedicated Servers

These sites cater for one particular game at a time, meaning you’ll find a lot of geeks and big fans of the game, but also a more realistic experience as all the programming will cater for that one game. A great example is www.playcatan.com which is dedicated to the Settlers of Catan series.

Popular Games

If you’re more of a traditionalist with your games (we’re talking Monopoly, Risk and Cluedo here), then big game sites like www.pogo.com allow you to play slightly edited versions of your game for free. Just make sure you read the adjusted rules before you start playing.

Social Media

Finally, lots of people use social media websites like www.facebook.com to play games with people that they are already friends with. The range of games can be more limited than on dedicated sites, but it’s definitely more fun competing against people that you know in real life.

Great Online Role Playing Games

by on Jan.16, 2015, under Games Online

When talking about great on-line role playing games, you have to start with the worlds most popular and longest lasting game: World of Warcraft  First released in 1994 and continuing with regular updates including the most recent ‘World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor’ released late in 2014, Blizzard Entertainment has kept fans returning to their fantasy world for over 20 years. Playing a character from numerous races allied with two main factions, players level their character and gain equipment (loot) through fighting AI controlled monsters and other players.

For a slightly different on-line role playing game, think about eve online. This long standing spaceship based RPG was released in 2004 and while it does not attract as massive a following as World of Warcraft, there is a very loyal following among fans, considering the game to need a more mature player. Players assume the identity of a starship pilot and interact in a massive galaxy of 7800 systems, many of them completely player controlled and operated. Eve has been celebrated for it’s very open ended game play style, allowing players to experience the game in whatever way they wish from piloting massive battleships to becoming a merchant or miner. Players choose from between four main factions that determine the style of ships that they can use.

A newer entry into the on-line role playing genre is Wildstar. This game takes from similar games like World of Warcraft and adds an active combat system, placing emphasis on players being able to dodge and aim attacks correctly. The game world is a chaotic blend of fantasy and science fiction where a player might be anything from a spell casting character, a close combat heavy warrior or choose a higher technology assassin or robot controlling engineer. There is something for everyone. Distinct jobs further define whole the player wants to play the game, leaving many options. While the game was only released in 2014 it has already garnered a large following and is set to continue on into the future.
