Slot machines are the most played games at casinos. But are they the most entertaining, too? Well, depends on who you ask. Depending on the slots you play, your experience can be immersive or dull, captivating or even boring. The truth is, there are thousands of slot machines at casinos, both online and in brick-and-mortar casinos, that it’s impossible to state whether they are fun or not.

There are, in turn, other games at casinos that are simply fun to play, no matter if they involve real-money wins or not. These are the ones that you should try today.

Casino poker

Poker is a fun game - but it needs a lot of patience, especially if there are many players involved. Casino poker is different: it retains the basics of poker but turns the speed up to maximum.

There are several poker variants that have received the casino treatment over the years - the most-played ones are certainly Caribbean Hold’em, the casino version of Texas Hold’em, and Casino Stud poker based on - you guessed it - Stud. Also, there is Video Poker, the single-player variant of Five Card Draw which is one of the most played games of chance around the world.


Bingo is not like other casino games. Where other games focus on a single-player experience, bingo is a lot more focused on the social setting, both online and in real life.

In real life, there are tables with several bingo players and their tickets, chatting away while the numbers are drawn, while online bingo halls have chat functionality and side games built in to their system where players can discuss whatever they can think of and play games while they wait for the next draw to come.

Bingo is played in many settings, from dedicated bingo halls to churches and homes for the elderly, sometimes for money, other times for charity.


Finally, here’s a game that’s beloved especially by younger casino players, capable of offering the same experience both online and in real life, both in a real-money and in a free-to-play setting.

Blackjack combines the speed of a typical casino game and the excitement of a game of wits. It is one of the few games where the decisions made by the player actually matter. More often than not, these decisions can bend the odds in the players’ favour, allowing them to overcome the house edge and win as many hands as possible. But it’s not the win itself that makes this game satisfying - it’s outwitting not the dealer but chance itself. No wonder that blackjack is one of the most entertaining casino games of them all.
