Casino games

On our casino games page you will find an overview of the most played gambling games. How should these games be played, where can they be played and how do you have the best chance of winning? We also offer free casino games. Refined players share their experiences.

Here you play those fun games

What a casino is all about are the casino games. Of course other things like fun and location are also important, but the essence of a casino visit are the games on offer. All this added together makes the "magic of the casino".

Casino games are not difficult

Casino games are generally simple to learn and play. Logical because the casino wants as many players as possible and therefore makes the threshold as low as possible. Furthermore, a casino game must be exciting and offer the possibility to win a large amount of money with a low bet.

Although the rules are simple, this does not mean that all games are easy to play well. That's why libraries over the centuries have been devoted to the best possible strategies to beat the casino. This has not been possible to date. You can, however, limit the house advantage with a good basic strategy. This way you can beat the casino on certain days and go home with a big wallet.

Play in an online live casino

An interesting section of casino games are offered by the online live casinos. A live casino is conducted from a studio. In short, it means that online players can bet on the live casino games. These are so-called table games that are also played in Holland Casino such as roulette and Blackjack. The payout percentages also correspond to Holland Casino.

In addition, there are the “game shows” that some live casino providers offer. Especially Evolution Gaming excels at this. In recent years they have released games such as Dream Catcher, Mega Ball, Deal or No Deal, and Crazy Time. These are all fun game formats where high winnings can be achieved with a small bet. In addition, they are games with a high entertainment value presented by a nice host. So entertainment!

Play Now

When we talk about free play, we mainly mean the online offer. After all, at Holland Casino, for example, there are no games where you can play with practice points. In most online casinos you can play the games for free in “fun mode”. You get some “Play Money” and when that is gone you can refresh the page to get new “Play Money”. You do not need to create an account to play for free. Nice and easy.

Another way to play completely for free is through a “no deposit bonus”. Here you get real money or free spins after you register yourself. For example 10 free spins on a specific slot machine or € 5 in your account. It is important to know that there are many conditions attached to these types of bonuses.

Paying out the money you get through the no deposit bonus received is often difficult because of course it was also completely free. There are also limits on how much you can withdraw with profit from a no deposit bonus. The purpose of this bonus is mainly to introduce you to the casino and the games. The fact that you feel like playing with real money makes it a bit more fun.

Playing for free is especially fun to get used to playing and betting online. You can also practice rules and try out certain strategies. Finally, it is of course especially fun as a pastime.

Game providers

Casinos generally do not make games themselves. They buy these from the game providers. They invented and made them. That explains why most casinos, both online and land-based, have many of the same games. Well-known game providers are Netent, Microgaming, Playtech, Stakelogic and Novomatic.

In case you choose one of the slots, it is important whether you choose one with a high or low “volatility”. It is also important whether you want to play a progressive jackpot machine. These can make you very rich in one go, but of course give less 'normal' prices.

Casino games offer from various providers

Many providers of casino games can be found on the internet. The so-called “land-based” casinos can be divided into Holland Casino and the arcades. By this we mean, for example, “Jacks Casino” and “Fairplay”. There are differences between the offerings of these three.

  1. Arcades and catering

    These are not allowed "Non-mechanized table games led by a human croupier" to offer. This means that no table games such as roulette and blackjack may be offered. They are allowed to exploit mechanized games such as slots and roulette machines.

    The payout percentage is legally 60%. But research shows that in practice it is about 83%.

  2. Holland Casino

    The state casino has a so-called license to organize gaming casinos. They are therefore the only one in the Netherlands. With this license, both mechanized and non-mechanized casino games may be offered. So in Holland Casino you see gaming tables with croupiers around which the guests stand and bet. Cozy! Holland Casino is required by law to pay out at least 80% at slot machines.

    In practice this turns out to be 92%. The different table games have a payout percentage related to the type of game. Examples of percentages: roulette 94,74%, blackjack 99,5% (if played according to the perfect rules), Money Wheel 92,31% and Punto Banco 98,6%

  3. Online casino

    Internet providers have a license comparable to that of Holland Casino. They are real casinos that also offer live table games in the form of online live casinos. But of course most of them also have a huge range of slots. In the Netherlands, the license is issued by the Gaming Authority (KSA).

    In fact, of these three providers (arcade, Holland Casino and online casino) has it online casino by far the largest selection of different casino games. This is of course because they don't need physical space to place games. Because they do not have high housing and personnel costs, they are able to pay out higher percentages. An online casino pays out about 97% to its players.

There are no games that pay out 100% or even more than 100%. In that case, the casino game would be loss-making and the player could thus play constructively profitably. This means bankruptcy of the casino. That will not happen.
