As an entirely different entity to playing poker, which experts say is fun to play, but should not be played for fun; the free casino game is designed purely for fun. Even casino games which are for real money play, should be played for their fun and entertainment value; most involve very little skill and this means they are “random” games. No random game should ever be played for a living, and professional craps, roulette, baccarat, and slots players are very few and far between. However, there is some element of skill involved in playing blackjack and you will find many more professional blackjack players; in fact many professional poker players will also take part in major blackjack tournaments.
But we are talking about the free casino game!
The free casino game can be found in any genre and theme you choose; any or all of the games we mentioned above may be played free plus plenty more – even poker can be found online for free. Now, while a gambler may not enjoy playing a slot for example, for free and only winning credits, a non-gambling player will love these games and find them to be great fun. In the case of slots games; these games are becoming exceptionally sophisticated, in particular in terms of video slots. We find some games with as many as 50 or even 100 pay-lines and intricate bonus features which actually equate to skill games. Playing the free casino game version of these slots allows the player to get a feel of what is expected of them. Be warned – it is lousy to get a big win when you are only playing for credits and planning to play for real; prepare yourself for this disappointment.
Most online casinos offer tons of free casino games; not always their entire portfolio, just examples of some of the best. Other casinos allow players unlimited access to free games, while another will allow real money free play as an incentive to register. This could be presented in the form of non-withdrawable cash, casino credits, a specific amount of time playing as many games as possible, or simply a limited amount of free spins. Which ever way you look at these offers; they are in essence a free casino game, so whatever it is, you have nothing to lose – take what they are offering!
Slots games with a great many pay-lines can be incredibly expensive to play, there is a set coin range, a number of coins per line, amount of lines to play; and it is always best to play over all pay-lines. So, playing these games free first enables the gambler to emulate how they would like to set the machine to their own budget, and see if they will be happy with the payout from the results. You will never walk into a live casino and have this small advantage over a random game like a slot – provided you can even get a seat at the game that you wish to play. Take this small advantage and try a free casino game, what have you got to lose?Post at 6:12 pm UTC by Jerry Whittaker
