There are hundreds of casino games that can be found in the online world. There are also going to be numerous casinos at which to finds these games. A lot of the industry is changing because of new regulations, governments trying to stop illegal gambling, and the release of new games.
One thing that is changing is skill based gambling. Skill based gambling are online games in which you will compete for real money, but it is based on skill rather than chance. Chance games are things like slot machines, some arcade games that require you to guess on numbers, or even Keno. Those games are all about the spin or the luck of the draw. In skill based online casino games you don't have to worry about guessing games, instead you have to have talent. It is a lot like the video games a player would play at home. There is skill involved in solving puzzles, moving up in levels, and gaining the win in the game.
There are four very popular skill based game categories on the internet sites. These game types are gaining in popularity so that the players will win more money for an actual skill, rather than a game of chance that could lose them money each and every time.
The arcade games are not always skill based, however there are several online that are new offering the skills. The arcade games are usually sped up puzzle games like collapse or even mini golf. The player has to be able to hit the golf ball and make points in a game. It takes skill of the player rather than a computer programme shooting the ball.
Next we have other types of puzzle games. These have time limits. Bejeweled and HexTwist are considered puzzle games. They require thought to figure out what you should select next and there are patterns.
Word games like Bookworm and Alphabet soup are becoming very popular in the real money casinos. In the past these games have been available as free games to play for fun, and especially for children. The fact that they are now being made available for online play with real money adds to the adventure of the whole aspect.
The last type of skill based game is the trivia games. These games are timed, played for money and test your knowledge of trivia. These games can have movie themes, history, or even science themes. It is up to the player to select what type of trivia they would most like to be asked. Again there is a time limit which can affect how much you win, especially if you are a little too slow, but they are based on skill and not the luck of a guess for most.
Disney was the first to produce a skill based internet site. This company is Skillgames.com. However, since Disney there have been more companies creating their online games and making them for real money, which Disney is for children and just fun.
