The Variety of Online Gaming

The internet is the treasure trove of variety. There are so many options for everything, and delightfully that includes gaming. There are probably thousands of games online that you can play. Chances are if you can think about any type of game then you can play it online. There are variants for every offline game and sport online. There are powerhouse companies that have made billions of dollars online, for example, EA sports, IGT, Konami, and NetEnt.

Online games fall into three main categories:

Casino games

These are adaptations of regular casino games found in offline casinos. The main aim here is to win money, and while strategy might help, luck is the bigger factor. Casino games have developed into video slots games which carry heavy elements of video games. Bingo has also been adapted to meet the online demand, as well as roulette and lotto.

Board games

These are adaptations of board games such as Chess, Drafts, and Sudoku. Games in this category are not only relatable to people who have played their offline versions, they follow the same rules too. The only difference really is the interface. Strategy board games have levels and are quite challenging to the players. Strategy games require concentration and will be a turn-off for people who have short attention spans. The excitement is more restrained and people who enjoy these games tend to savour intellectual stimulation. Often, the only win is the feel good and bragging rights.

Video games

These are the most popular games online. Video games are close simulations of reality or an alternate reality. Games like FIFA, Need for Speed, and Hitman are very well-developed with crisp graphics, a compelling story line, and high excitement. Racing games are especially addictive due to the thrill of the race. For many people, video games are a way to relax and have fun either at home or in transit.

The choice is there for players, and one is not restricted to any one category; you can play them all.
