Fresh casino games to play this winter

We are now in the thick of the winter season and as the evenings get colder and darker much earlier, spending more time in the warm indoors at home has lots of appeal. While cosy at home, we still need to stay entertained and one great option that many of us have been looking to is online gaming – specifically casino gaming.

While visiting a land based venue was once the only real way to enjoy casino games, many of our favourite games can now be found online and be easily accessed from a smartphone or computer.

The global casino gaming industry has been seeing rapid growth over the last couple of decades. Worldwide, the value of casino gaming has now surpassed $263 billion US dollars and continues to rise each year.

This is due to a range of factors, from the growth of the experience economy and ongoing legalisation of casino-related activities across the world to technological developments and increased access to high speed internet connections.

Casino sites are releasing brand new games on a very regular basis. As competition in the industry is fierce, they understand the need to keep content fresh in order to attract new players and maintain a loyal customer base.

For players at home, this means lots of choice in games to play. So many games it can be difficult to decide where to start.

That is why we have put together this handy list of some fresh new casino games to play this winter, including why you will enjoy each of these games and how you can get started with playing them:

Bingo Slots

Firstly, why play another game of bingo when you could play bingo with a twist this season? Introducing bingo slots, a combination of the best features of bingo and the very best of slots.

Bingo slots (also known as slingo) is now a game in its own right and there are plenty of titles to pick from online. Don’t worry if you are new to the hybrid version of the game as the format is something that you will mostly recognise from the two originals.

The display looks similar to a traditional online slot machine with the addition of a numbered grid. This typically includes a 5×5 grid and a single slot reel above or below the card. To win, you will want to match the numbers of the reel with those on the card and hopefully mark off five adjacent numbers.

To begin playing, you will need to select your bet amount and then spin the reel. Any matching numbers will be highlighted and marked off and you can usually buy addition spins at the end of the game if you wish to.

As you can see, it really is a fun, simple game. Some of the best bingo slots to play include Deal or No Deal, Book of Slingo, Slingo Advance and Red Hot Slingo.
