What are free online casinos?

If you want to delve into the world of online casinos for the first time but you're not sure if you want to risk any of your hard-earned money just yet, free online casinos are a great option.

Free online casinos offer their full range of video slots, table games, and casual casino games for free. That means you get to make use of virtual cash that doesn't cost you a single cent. Win or lose, there's no downside for you and you are able to experience how the games on offer work before diving in and making your first deposit.

The availability of free games at these casinos can vary, but let's take a closer look at what you will be able to find.


Free slots and more

The internet is filled to the brim with hundreds of online casino games. Slots based on movies, cartoon characters, and your favourite bands can all be found. There are also hundreds of variations on well-known table games such as poker and blackjack. The key to any successful casino encounter is finding the right game that works for you. 

But where should you start? Below are the general free-to-play casino games you'll find at most online casinos. Try them all or choose carefully and discover what really works for you.

  1. Free slots: By far one of the largest categories of casino games, slots are a firm favourite for most punters. These free games are also the main focus for much improvement as technology advances. Many casino game creators also focus entirely on slots as they offer the opportunity for creativity with regards to imagery, themes, soundtracks, and reel configuration. Slots offer the perfect starting point for new players as they are easy to understand and a lot of fun to play. There's also a wide variety of options available. You could choose to spin the reels of a movie-themed slot, or take on a classic fruit slot. Perhaps you'd enjoy the look of a 3D video slot? With so many great options to choose from, you'll be occupied for hours experiencing everything that free slots have to offer.
  2. Free table games: If you've ever visited a land-based casino, you'll have seen the many table games on the floor with a dealer standing at the head. Likewise, there are a myriad of online table games to choose from, but the experience is a little more private as there are no dealers or players around. Instead it's just you and the online table game where you can place your bets and hope for the best! Free table games at online casinos include favourites such as blackjack, roulette, craps, and many more. As mentioned before, there are different variations of each of these games and therefore the rules may differ slightly to what you're used to. Always be sure to read the rules of the table games you join before playing along.
  3. Free casual games: Not as popular as slots or table games, casual games make up a smaller, but important part of online casinos. Casual or novelty games includes classics such as Keno, scratch cards, Sic-bo, and many more. There are many versions of these classic casual games available, each one bringing their own individual addition to the game.

Platforms for free casino games

We all love having options. From food, to music, to where we play our casino games! Options are what make playing at online casinos so fun. You can choose which type of game you'd like to explore, which theme you want to experience, and even where and how you play. 

Play from your browser: Browser-based casino games are the most popular form of free casino games. They're so popular mostly due to the fact that there are no downloads required, and thanks to the invention of HTML 5, games load quickly and easily.

Play from your mobile: While most casino games that run on HTML5 can be played from your mobile browser too, you also have the option of playing via a mobile app. Suited perfectly for Android and iOS devices such as your phone or tablet/iPad, mobile apps allow you to take free casinos with you wherever you might be.

All in all, free casino games are the perfect way to relax and enjoy a fun table game, slot, or casual game without any of the risk.
