Canadian Online Casino Games

The Canadian online casino has a range of different casino games for the player to choose from. The casino games can be broadly categorized into a number of different groupings.

Slots - Slots games are perhaps the most well known, and popular, of all the casino games. The slots games are based on the original slot machines where players would deposit a coin, pull a lever and wait for the reels to match up and win a payout. The online casino will usually offer a huge variety of different slots games. As well as the classic slots versions there are also video slots with a larger number of reels and usually a number of additional bonus games. The online slots games of today are based on movies, books or even famous celebrities. The slots also usually include a number of additional bonus games and other special effects that can result in the player doubling or even tripling their payouts.

The progressive slots games are extremely popular among Canadian players. Progressive slots have a jackpot that keeps on growing every time anyone plays the game. In some online slots games the jackpot can reach well over a million dollars before one lucky player wins the entire pot.

As well as playing online slots alone, the online casino will also run online slots tournaments where players can actually test their luck against other slots players.

Table games – Table games are another popular game choice at the online casinos. The table games are traditionally played around a table with cards or dice.

  • Blackjack – Before any cards are put down, a wager is placed on the table. Once the wager is in place, each player is dealt two cards. The aim of the game Blackjack is to beat the dealer. This is done by getting as close to 21 points as possible without going over the 21 points.
  • Roulette - As opposed to many of the other table games, this game is played using a large wheel. The numbers on the wheel range from 0-36, the aim of the game is to bet correctly the number on the roulette wheel where the ball will land.
  • Baccarat - Baccarat is a card game played between two hands, the "player" and the "banker". Each baccarat coup has three possible outcomes: "player" where the player has the higher score, "banker", and "tie". The word "Baccarat" is used in place of zero within the game, to refer to zero-valued cards and hands.
  • 3 Card Poker - 3 card Poker uses a single deck of 52 cards, 3 Card Poker is actually two great games in one.  There is Mobile Pair Plus and mobile Ante and Play. These games can be played one at a time, or both at the same time.

Specialty Games- A third category of casino games is the specialty games and they include games such as scratch cards, lottery style games like keno and horse racing.

Although they are played on a smaller screen, the mobile casino games have the same format and game play as the games at the online casino and the jackpots are just as generous. The different mobile devices will often have a mobile casino that has been developed specifically for that device. The mobile casino games that are available for tablets - including iPad - take advantage of the large screen and the many additional and unique functions of the device.
