Roulette Alternatives

Playing online roulette is our favorite way to spend an evening and we love the game absolutely. It offers a great combination of good casino bonuses, a fair house edge which gives you a chance to make a profit and just the right mix of regular wins and big wins, as well as offering progressive jackpots for when we fancy going after the REALLY big wins.

But, despite our love of the spinning wheel and the bouncing ball, every now and again, just to spice things up, we like to play something a little different. Online casinos have so many options when it comes to games it seems a shame to stick to just one – even if it is the best one!

However, with some casinos serving up more than 500 games, knowing where to start can be tough, especially if you’re used to playing just roulette, which is why we’re taking a look at some of the other popular casino games.


Blackjack is arguably the most popular game in the casino, be that online or in the “real” world. One of the great things about blackjack is that it has a very low house edge, meaning theoretically it offers a good chance of long term success. On the down side, those used to roulette may find it a little slow paced, especially if you’re playing live dealer casino and with a full table. The other possible negative, compared to roulette, is that you don’t have the same possibility to win big from a small stake. Backing a single number at roulette can deliver returns of 35/1 whilst in blackjack your biggest payday will be 3/2 on a blackjack itself.


Slots are great fun and a good way to pass a little time. From a small stake, a dollar or even less, you can win big, with wins of 500 times your stake or even more possible. Slots carry the opposite pros and cons of blackjack though in a way, with those huge payouts balanced by a house edge that can be as high as 15% and which is almost certain to be greater than roulette.

Other Casino Games

Craps is not a game too many players play in online casinos but why not give it a go, or perhaps try your hand at baccarat or even keno? Many casinos offer a demo mode so you can try games for free before you play with real cash so why not try something new next time you fancy a change from roulette?
