Casino Games for the 21st Century


The development of online casinos in recent years hasn't just influenced the way we play poker, slots and other casino games but is starting to shape the actual games we play, too. Although there are plenty of traditional poker games that are available to play in online casinos in the U.S., these 21st-century updates offer an exciting way to play and win big by incorporating the latest technology. Let's explore some of the more popular ones.

Video Poker

Video poker was first popularized as a computerized slot machine game that could be played in arcades or casinos throughout the U.S. It's a format that has transitioned well to being played online with leading online casinos and online poker platforms developing their own versions. Regardless of how or where a game is played, all video poker games follow the same basic format:

-         Five starting cards are dealt

-        Standard poker hand rankings are recognized

 -       Players can choose, hold or discard cards

 -      Discarded cards are replaced using a single, random draw

 -    If a player's hand matches a qualifying hand, then the corresponding prize is won

The outcome of a game of video poker depends entirely on a randomized number generator, which shuffles the deck in play. There is a total of 2.6 million card combinations possible every time a deck is shuffled, which effectively removes the possibility of patterns occurring. The rules for each game are the same as draw poker, and typically, the aim is to generate the highest-ranked poker hand possible. Some leading online casinos in New Jersey like 888 have a selection of video poker games based on newer poker variations like Jacks or Better.

Progressive Jackpot Slots

Progressive jackpot slot games are some of the most popular games played online; no doubt due to them being a staple for land-based gambling in New Jersey and throughout the U.S. Although all slot games have a jackpot, in traditional slot games these jackpots are fixed at a set amount. No matter how many times or how frequently the jackpot is hit, the value of the prize stays fixed. However, both online and offline progressive slots games have a jackpot that increases in size every time a player makes a wager.

With each wager, a player makes the jackpot grow larger and larger, and depending on the game, some jackpots can reach hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. When the jackpot is won, the prize defaults back to its standard amount but will be built up again when more players place wagers. In a progressive jackpot slots game, the prize is higher, so the stakes are higher, but this often makes for exciting game play. 888 Casino has a wide selection of progressive jackpot games to play online with Millionaire Jackpot being one of the most popular titles.

Fast-Fold Poker

The concept of fast-fold poker was first introduced by an online platform in a game called Rush. The premise worked by offering something new for a traditional poker game that took advantage of the opportunity offered by online and mobile play - speed. Players in a game of fast-fold poker can fold their hands as soon as they are dealt and move onto another one.

This non-stop format not only builds plenty of excitement, it also benefits online players. In most online casinos in the U.S., fast-fold poker games offer the chance to build up a lot more loyalty points than traditional formats, meaning players have a greater opportunity to earn rewards from playing the game. Most fast-fold poker games are also based on cash tables and use the Texas Hold 'em variation. However, some games, such as SNAP Poker from 888 Poker, are playable in both cash-game and tournament formats.

A lot of the leading online casinos also offer the chance to take part online in live games streamed from brick-and-mortar casinos as well as numerous other formats and variations. As the online casino and gambling industry continues to develop, we can expect to see more 21st-century takes on traditional casino games. There's a lot of discussion in the industry around the impact of virtual reality, and although it's a long way off, we could start to see the next wave of online casino games being influenced by this.
