Online Casino Games - What's Easiest to Play?

January 5, 2015

There are some people who are very serious about their efforts to gain an "edge" somehow over the online casino, and they tailor their approach accordingly. They want to study all the rules and all the strategies at their disposal, and they want to become a virtual "maven" at whatever game they are playing. Of course, this approach takes some time and effort. And we are happy to address the needs of those casino players.

But some people really don't want to go that far. They would rather put a minimum of effort and do a minimum of thinking as they feel it contributes to the relaxation provided by their pursuit. And those people have to be addressed as well.

The best way to do that is to talk about those games that are easiest to play, so those folks can put their minds an "auto-pilot" (we're being a little tongue-in-cheek here) and just sit back and play.

Heading up that list is slots. Maybe that is why the game is the most popular in an online casino, and why there are more variations to slots than anything else. What this literally requires is that you decide how much you want to bet, and click the button that says "Spin." Of course, there might be some thought that has to go into the amount of your bet, with three factors - the denomination, the number of coins and the number of paylines you activate. But once you have decided upon that, everything gets pretty simple from there; well, unless you decide you want to change the size of your bet. Thankfully, however, you might be able to take advantage of the "Autoplay" option that is available on some slot games, in which you pick one bet and click one button and let the reels spin over and over again, as much as you want them to.

Baccarat also comes to mind. And that might be a surprising revelation for some people. That's because those who are unfamiliar with it don't have much of an idea about how the game basically works, and then past a certain point, the rules kind of get complicated. So if your objective is to understand all of it, that might be a hill too high to climb. But since there are no real playing decisions that have to be made, the only determination that must be made prior to each round of play is whether to place a bet on the Banker, the Player or a Tie. Then the program that runs the game takes care of the rest.

If you are looking at games like craps, Caribbean Stud, or video poker, which require you to know how the game is played and how to make your decisions accordingly, then you are probably barking up the wrong tree!
