There is more to online betting than poker and blackjack. In fact you can pretty much place a bet on anything these days. If you don’t have a poker face or can’t get into blackjack strategy, here are three different ways to gamble online.
The fun, easy to master game of bingo made the transition from offline to online seamlessly. Additionally, the lack of national borders means new bingo games have spread around the web. For example, in the UK the traditional form of 90-ball bingo is now facing tough competition from the American variant, 75-ball bingo. Both of these bingo games are available to play online at Costa Bingo.
The difference between the two is fairly simple to explain. 90-ball bingo is played with 90 balls using a 3x9 card comprising of 15 numbers. To win the big prize you need to mark off every number on the card, but you can also win smaller prize for completing one or two rows.
75-ball bingo is played using 75 balls and on a 5x5 card using 24 numbers. You have to complete a pattern with the marked off numbers and there is just one jackpot to win.
During the last World Cup in-game or in-play betting was one of the most popular forms of betting. You could bet on who would be the next to take a corner, score a goal or get a yellow card. It makes games far more exciting and makes you feel as if you are really part of the action even when you’re watching online or on TV at home.
During the Olympics, this in-play betting is sure to be popular again, with players able to bet on a variety of sports and game plays, from who goes through to the next round to exact times clocked on track races.
Slot machines, slots or pokies have been around since the late 1800s and have been a success since their conception. These days they are commonly played online because they are easy to play and require little time, skill or knowledge. You can choose from a wide variety of themes and even play games based on TV game shows and arcade games.
