Cryptologic is a leading online gaming software provider. Along with Microgaming it pioneered this industry. Today the number of online casino games offered by Cryptologic is only next to that offered by Microgaming. Cryptologic made a niche for itself with its branded slot games. So popular are these games that Cryptologic has started offering them to casinos operating on other software platforms. In 2009 Cryptologic signed over 20 such deals. This article discusses the various online casino games categories offered by Cryptologic.

Slots form the bulk of the games at Cryptologic. Cryptologic has developed branded slots in conjunction with three parties and these are separately listed. Two of these categories were released late last year. DC Comics branded slots contain the games Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Paramount branded slots contain Forrest Gump and Braveheart. The mainstay of the Cryptologic branded slots is Marvel Comics. There are over 15 games in this category.

There are several other sub categories of slots games. Casual Game slots have unusual slots based on popular games. Jenga and Cubis are the most played slots in this category. Cryptologic has a category called Rapid Fire Jackpot. These slot games come with progressive jackpots that are awarded randomly. These jackpots are not large but are hit very often, hence the name Rapid Fire. There are the three reel slot games that are grouped under Traditional Slots and Fruit Machines, which are pub style slot games with features like Nudge and Hold. The bulk of the online slots are the five reel video slots. These are too many in number to be clubbed in one group. Therefore they are listed by the number of paylines. Cryptologic offers two All Pays slots, which have 243 paylines enabled. These are Just Vegas and Savannah Sunrise.

Of the Table Games, Blackjack and Roulette are listed separately. There are 11 blackjack games on offer at Cryptologic online casinos. There is a single deck game that offers the highest average payout ratio on optimal play. The only problem is that it has a minimum wager of $25, which can be steep for low rollers. The blackjack games include two multi hand games and fun games like Pontoon and Perfect Pairs. The two online roulette games offered are American Roulette and European Roulette.

The online games listed under Table Games mostly include variants of Casino Poker. The popular casino poker games offered by Cryptologic are Let It Ride, Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Pai Gow Poker and Texas Hold’em Bonus. Other table games are the dice games craps and sic bo and the popular land casino game baccarat. Cryptologic offers two scratch card games, High Fashion and Money Farm, which are listed under Lottery.

The final category is Video Poker. There are two categories - Bonus Video Poker and Video Poker. Nine identical variants are available in each of the categories. The more popular variants are Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Aces Faces and Joker Poker. The Bonus Video Poker games are unique to Cryptologic online casinos. In these games the rejected cards are not discarded but mixed in the decks again. If the player is dealt a rejected card again he is entitled to a bonus.

Cryptologic casino games have come a really long way and are rather impressive in comparison to some of the other providers. I still think that they could use some work and I'm sure that this is something that they know as well but all in all they're a good set of games and a solid company.
