The Most Entertaining Casino Games

Casino games are perhaps the most controversial form of entertainment. On one hand, they are games – many of them are pretty entertaining and even addictive in the positive sense of the word. On the other hand, though, they can cost you money and they can also be addictive in a not-so-positive sense. Still, there are millions of people around the world playing them in one form or another, either in the halls of the massive resorts in Las Vegas or Sun City or online, playing slot machines and table games at outlets like JackpotCity online casino.

There are some casino games that are a bit too monotonous if played with no real-money stakes involved – but there are a select few that are captivating and exciting even when they are played for winnings in nothing but virtual money.


Blackjack is a game of chance with a long history, played in Europe in one form or another as early as the 1600s. The game then accompanied explorers on their expeditions to all corners of the globe, finding their way into gambling dens, saloons, and later the grandiose casino resorts of Las Vegas and Macao.

Blackjack is one of the few casino games that actually give players the chance to make decisions that can influence the outcome of a hand. Also, it’s a game that’s exciting on its own, without the need for the player to stake real money on any hand, probably due to the strategy and skill involved.

Slot machines

Slot machines are the most popular games at online casinos, and they are the ones present in the biggest number in real-life casinos as well. They are simple, they have an incredibly steep learning curve, and while for an outsider they may seem repetitive and boring, they are captivating enough to glue millions of gamblers each year to their screens.

Slot machines are capable of putting their players in a state similar to “the zone”, a mental state of focused concentration on the activity they are involved with that makes the hours run by. The slots have millions of fans out there, playing them both in a real-money setting or casually through websites or apps like Slotomania or Big Fish Casino.


If you ask an online casino player about craps, their response will be that it’s a total snoozefest. Ask a brick-and-mortar casino player about the same game and they’ll be much more excited about it. When played in a real-life setting, craps is perhaps the most entertaining casino game ever created.

When playing craps, a player is designated the “shooter” in charge of the dice – and all the people standing around the table betting on their throws (or even against them) cheer for them. When you step inside a casino, you’ll usually find the craps table the easiest because it is the one surrounded by happy players constantly making a noise.
