The Butler’s Top Five Online Games

Recent years have seen the online gaming industry expand at an ever growing rate with more and more people the world over depositing to gaming sites and winning big! The Butler from the online bingo site takes a look at the industry and reveals his favourite games from available on the internet.

1. Bingo

Bingo is believed to have originated in Italy during the 1500s before migrating to other parts of Europe throughout the 1700s and in recent years has expanded from bricks-and-mortar games to online and its popularity has increased exponentially as a result.

There two main types of bingo that can be played with the 90 ball bingo descended from the Italian game invented more than 500 years ago which is most popular in the UK and the 75 ball version of the game that was invented in the USA in 1929. The major difference between the two is that 90 ball version sees you win prizes for marking off the numbers on your tickets as they are called – the more lines you get, the bigger the cash prize you win! 75 ball bingo is similar to 90 ball bingo, but instead of marking your tickets line by line, you must mark them to a certain shape. Once you get this shape on your ticket, you are the winner of the big prize.

Both versions of the game are available at where you can play both free and paid games.

2. Poker

Poker is another game that has massively expanded from smoky backrooms and home games into a massive worldwide business with the invention of the internet. There are many different varieties of the game, with the most popular version being Texas Hold’em. In this version of the game each player is dealt two cards and five cards are dealt in the middle of the table for all to use. To win the hand you need to make your best five card hand using whatever combination of the seven cards available. It is an easy game to pick up and learn to play but as 1989 WSOP Gold Bracelet winner Mike Sexton once remarked “It takes five minutes to learn but a lifetime to master”.

Other popular versions of the game are Omaha, which is similar to Texas Hold’em except you are dealt four cards and you are able to make your best hand with two of these and three on the table, and the draw and stud versions of the game. Draw games see you dealt all five cards and you are able to replace as many cards as you wish, while stud games see cards dealt out both face down and uncovered.

3. Blackjack

Blackjack, or as it is sometimes known 21, is the most widely played casino banking game in the world and in order to win you have to beat the dealer. The best hand to get in blackjack is ace-ten/jack/queen/king and is known as a blackjack. This will always win you the hand, as long as the dealer does not also hold a blackjack, and you can also win by having a higher final score than the dealer or if the dealer goes bust by exceeding 21 on his cards.

The game was invented in the early 1600s and has grown to become one of the most popular card games in the world, both in live casinos and online, ever since as it appeals to both novices and experts alike. offers a variety of blackjack games in the casino section of the site, so check it out today for your chance to win big at the card tables!

There are many systems available to be used to optimise winnings at the roulette tables, although their effectiveness is questionable at best, and there is plenty of opportunity to win big at the tables. There are two versions of the game with the European version of the game having 37 slots from 0-36 and a 38 slot version of the game popularised in the USA with an extra 00 on the wheel.
