Slingo, ‘The Voice,’ video poker variations—Online casino sites cater to adventure-seekers
When it comes to online casino games, a lot of players like to stick to the basics—blackjack, roulette and, most of all, slots. But, online casino sites in New Jersey also know that sometimes players like to get a little adventurous and try something new.
So, in the spirit of adventure, sites offer up a host of innovative new games that put a little pizazz in their online offerings.
A great example is Slingo, a combination of bingo and slots available at sites like PlaySugarHouse.com. Bingo itself is a relatively new online phenomenon, but Slingo takes it a step further.
Slingo starts with a numbers grid that’s very similar to bingo. The goal is to match five in a row, as many times as you can. This includes horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines.
The difference is that you spin the wheel on the bottom row that generates the numbers you are trying to match, much like a slot machine. In some versions of the games, you have to move quickly to mark your matches. In others, they are marked automatically. The bottom grid can also give you jokers, free spins and even instant prizes.
Another new game from International Game Technology (IGT) matches the fun of the TV hit “The Voice.” Game play involves spinning chairs, much like the judges on the show. Chairs spin when you hit play. Each chair releases musical notes. Players try to fill up prize columns or release instant wins.
For fans of video poker, check out some of the table game variations of poker that are available at multiple sites. The most basic is Three-Card Poker. In this game, you are basically playing a three-card hand against a dealer.
Players start by making an ante bet. The player and the dealer each receive three cards. The player has the option to make a second bet of the ante amount or fold. The player’s objective is to make a better three-card poker hand than the dealer.
What makes the game fun are the optional side bets. The Pair Plus side bet is based on the player’s initial three-card poker hand and pays on a pair or better. The Six-Card Bonus side bet is based on the best five-card poker hand that is formed when combining the player’s hand and the dealer’s hand and pays on three of a kind or better.
Those extra jackpots can give three-card poker a fun burst of action that video poker can’t always match. Three Card Poker is offered at almost all of New Jersey’s online sites.
So, that’s a quick look at a few table games that might spruce up your online experience. We’ll highlight more in the future and in the meantime, good luck.
