Casino games are not all created equal. They are built around the same basic principles – they are easy to learn and fast-paced, with simple rules. They pretty much fit the definition of hyper-casual games. Some of them, in turn, rely too much on their winning potential to keep players satisfied. Thus, they can be dull, repetitive, and – let’s be honest – boring. There are, in turn, exceptions, games that you can try at the Spin casino online that are fun to play even when there’s no money involved, which brings them as close to hyper-casual games as possible.
Blackjack was played as early as the early 17th century in Spain, from where it spread to France, England, and the United States where it received the name we all know today. It is a game with simple rules that’s easy to learn but hard to master. As such, it’s a challenge not only for your luck but also for your mind.
Blackjack is one of the few casino games, like the ones you can find at no account casino UK, that need a strategy as well as luck to be played right. You have to make the right decision based on limited information (the dealer’s upcard gives you a hint on what’s coming next) that you can use to bend the odds in your favor. Thus, winning a round is satisfying no matter if you win money or if you simply beat the dealer – and the odds.
Slot machines have been around for more than 120 years… and have remained pretty much the same, no matter if they were powered by springs and drums or bits and bytes. When, in turn, they found their way online, complete freedom to experiment was bestowed upon them. This gave birth to a few very interesting and unique games that break all conventions.
One of the most entertaining breeds of slot machines is “cluster” slots. These take a page out of the “match-3” textbook: matching tiles horizontally or vertically, having them disappear from the screen, and triggering cascading wins while triggering various power-ups in the process
Cluster slots may not look much but they are surprisingly fun and captivating to play.
Finally, here’s a game that only really works in brick-and-mortar casinos – but there, it is perhaps the most fun to play: craps. The game we know today, invented in 1907, is based on a dice game called “Hasard” played as early as in the 14th century. The game was incredibly popular among soldiers during World War II, then retained its popularity – both in a “street” version and a “casino” version – to this day.
In casinos, the craps table is always surrounded by a crowd. The shooter – one of the players around the table – throws the dice, while the others cheer for them and encourage them. And when their turn is up, another player takes over the dice. Loudness is usually frowned upon in casinos – except for the craps table, where it is encouraged.
