Black Spins Casino features an extensive range of outstanding casino games including online pokies, jackpots, Slingo and instant-win scratchies. These popular casino games can be played across all devices which means you can enjoy gaming on the go, whenever and wherever you like. We include some of the best real money titles from a wide array of big-name developers such as Netent, Playtech, Pragmatic Play and Evolution Gaming. Read on for further information about some of the best online casino games that we currently offer at Black Spins Casino.
Online Casino Games – Pokies
Casino games don’t get much more iconic than pokies. They grace the floors of land based venues the world over and are as widely played (if not more so) than traditional games such as roulette, poker and blackjack. For some players, their casino experience isn’t complete unless they spin some reels. These games have proliferated across the web in a big way over the past ten to fifteen years. Indeed, you’d now be very hard pushed to find an online gaming casino with a portfolio that wasn’t dominated by pokies. Even classic card games play a distinct second fiddle to pokies.
And this is the case with Black Spins Casino. We feature an enormous range of variants – some are based on the classic pokie machines of old while others showcase some of the most exciting trends in online casino game development. From progressive jackpot titles to the blockbuster Megaways variants, our collection is aimed at gamers who want to play the best casino games currently available. Our lobby is constantly being updated with new releases, some of which feature ground-breaking new mechanics and innovations. So while it’s good to include established classics, we recognise that most of you who play online want to try the very latest titles as well.
As discussed in more depth in our online pokies category page, there exist multiple slot versions aimed squarely at those who want to play reel-based casino games online. Here’s a quick re-cap.
Three Reel Pokies
Games with three reels tend to be pretty simple to play. Devoid of bonus rounds and usually comprising a small number of pay-lines, these types of casino games are intended for casual players, newbies and retro-heads. Despite their simplicity, they’re usually highly playable.
Five Reel Pokies
Nowadays, games at the casino, especially those based online are dominated by pokies. Unlike primitive three-reel or video poker games, five reel slots are often replete with bonus features, engaging in-game mechanics and highly polished visuals. They’re about as far as you can get from traditional bricks-and-mortar pokie games. They tend to be the one of the main attractions for players looking to escape the often staid environments present in games of roulette or poker.
Progressive Jackpot Pokies
Web-based pokies with progressive jackpots take online casino gaming to a whole new level. These games pool small percentages of player stakes to create enormous jackpots. For games such as Mega Moolah, these jackpots can often reach life-changing amounts due to the sheer number of people who play casino games like this around the world. So, unsurprisingly, progressive pokies are very, very popular with patrons, particularly those looking to win some money playing at online casinos.
Online Casino Games – Slingo
Slingo is one of those casino games, online players often try as an alternative to online pokies. The game is a kind of pokie/bingo hybrid that fuses the best elements from each to create an immersive, highly accessible game. Casinos offer Slingo because it enhances their game lobbies. After all, it doesn’t matter how much you enjoy playing a casino’s pokie games – everybody needs a break now and then!
Casinos usually feature Slingo games that are based on 75-ball bingo. These versions include a 5 x 5 grid that’s similar to a standard online bingo card. Below the numbered boxes is a set of reels. In order to win, you’ll need to fill up the grid by spinning the reels to reveal numbers.
Movie/TV Themed Slingo Games
As with real money casino games such as pokies, there are plenty of officially-licensed Slingo games that are based on popular movies or TV shows. Popular examples include Deal or No Deal, X-Factor and Love Island. Despite the elaborate, often highly-polished theming, game play usually follows standard Slingo rules. A few versions, such as DOND, don’t include fixed pay-tables but instead offer the chance to win multipliers.
Progressive Slingo Games
Certain Slingo games (X-Factor included) feature progressive jackpots. Although fairly lucrative, these jackpot games aren’t exactly life-changers. Still, it’s still possible to bag a decent amount of money through some perseverance. In order to get your hands on the booty, you’ll need to unveil a series of special symbols, usually on a pre-specified reel.
Big Brand Pokie Themed Slingo Games
Like Slingo casino games based on films and TV, it makes perfect sense for online casino developers to also associate them with established, big-brand pokies. Rainbow Riches Slingo is probably the most well-known example. Closely based on the illustrious pokie game, this Slingo variant requires real money players to complete five slingos to win prizes. While this sounds a like a bit of a stretch, RRS also features a special bonus round that can pay out as much as 1000x your initial stake.
Online Casino Games – Scratchies
Scratchies are games casinos continue to include as part of their wider portfolios. As with video poker, or random number generated games such as auto roulette, they’re usually very undemanding real money games that are easy to play. They’re closely based on the standard scratch cards that you might pick up at your local convenience store – more often than not, games online include multiple rows of covered themed symbols. These can be virtually scratched off to reveal (hopefully) some sort money prize. Without wanting to explore the psychological elements behind this popular online casino game, most scratchies satisfy the ‘quick-fix’ mentality that seems to grip so many players these days.
Mobile Casino Games Online
The technologies used to develop online casino games have come a very, very long way in the past 10 years or so. About a decade ago, if you wanted to use your mobile device to play a casino game online, you’d have to make do with Flash-based titles. Although this framework was and remains useful for creating animations it wasn’t ideally suited to mobile devices. For one thing, the platform isn’t exactly secure. It’s also a major battery hog.
So, in 2012, the late Steve Jobs wrote an open-letter in which he publicly criticised Flash for these very failings. Jobs also announcing that his cherished iOs operating system would no longer support the platform. And that pretty much spelled the death knell for Flash-based casino games.
Advent of HTML5 Online Casino Games
However, Job’s letter led to the introduction of a new framework that would change gaming online forever: HTML5. More secure, kinder to battery-life and extremely flexible, HTML5 was quickly seized upon by casino game developers. Within a few years, most had converted their entire back-catalogues – not just pokies but games such as roulette and blackjack too. This in turn resulted in online casinos updating their game lobbies. Today, developers exclusively use HTML5 to create beautiful pokie, roulette and blackjack games as well as live dealer environments that are accessible across all devices.
Online Casino Games – Gaming on the Go
The HTML5 revolution also gave rise to the ‘gaming on the go’ fervour/stupor that still grips players. And whether you like it or not, playing casino games on small devices is probably the future. This is why developers are at pains to ensure that their casino games are fully responsive, regardless of the platform on which they’re accessed.
While some are basically simplified versions, the majority of online casino games now include exactly the same features that you’ll find on desktop computers. Just like other top online casinos, all of our slot game titles and classic casino games are fully-responsive and ready for play on mobiles and tablets.
Top Casino Game Developers
In order to present our players with the best casino games, we partner with the best casino game providers. These companies serve real money casino games to online casinos around the world and have become established names within the industry. All of the games available at Black Spins Casino have been created with skill, imagination and ingenuity. Here are some of the most notable examples of the game developers we work with.
Blueprint Gaming is part of the Gauselmann Group and was founded in 2001. It began life supplying slot games to bricks-and-mortar casinos before expanding its operations to include the development of online pokies. Although there don’t exist any Blueprint-powered versions of video poker, roulette or blackjack, you’ll be able to find a dazzling collection of online pokies, some of which showcase the company’s land-based origins – the Pub Fruit series is a typical example. Joining Blueprint’s standard slots is the highly successful Jackpot King franchise – there are currently six variants of this massively popular game including: Eye of Horus, Wonders of Egypt, Buffalo Rising and 7s Deluxe.
Big Time Gaming
Big Time Gaming specialises in creating web-based casino slot machines – so adept have they become in this area that most if not all casino slots developed by BTG feature some sort of innovation. Based in Australia this company has built a reputation of international repute in a relatively short space of time. As well as player-friendly card games such as Auto Blackjack, Auto Roulette and VIP Roulette, BTG has unveiled a slew of well-received real money pokies like Bonanza, Queen of Riches, Temple Quest, Temple of Fortune and Fruit Cake. One of its major cash cows is the Megaways slot engine – the in game shape-shifting mechanic that changes how the symbols appear with each spin. Many of these casino games can be found at online casinos, ourselves included!
Eyecon has become a highly respected developer in iGaming over the past five years or so. OK, so it doesn’t feature video poker or table games such as blackjack and roulette. But this exciting company has one of the most exciting ranges of real money casino slots in the business. To date, Eyecon has been solely or party responsible for a raft of innovative games such as Temple of Iris, Shaman Spirit, Caravan to Cairo and Beat the Bobbies at the Tower of London. It’s no surprise then that games from Eyecon are sought after by so many casinos.
For a typical web-based game casino, online players tend to gravitate towards titles developed by trusted casino game providers such as Microgaming. In fact, this company is one of the most storied of all and was launched way back in 1994. Its list of casino games includes blackjack and roulette, slingo game titles as well as various scratchies. Nevertheless, Microgaming’s considerable reputation is largely down to slots. On top of the blockbuster progressive game franchise, Mega Moolah, casinos are able to offer players hit games such as Immortal Romance, Break Da Bank, Noble Sky and Fortunium Gold.
When it comes to creating innovative games, developers don’t get much more innovative than Net Ent. This Swedish-based outfit started out in 1996 and originally specialised in land-based gambling. Since then, its focus has shifted to online casinos and they’re now considered pioneers in the field of casino game development. They’re back-catalogue includes a small collection of standard and live dealer games – but Net Ent are more well-known for highly-rated games such as Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst and Divine Fortune. Their work can be found on the casino games list of more than 200 operators, including Black Spins Casino.
NextGen was established in 1999 and is one of the world’s largest casino game development studios. Dabbling in the lottery and land-based gambling sectors, it also features an outstanding portfolio of casino titles including traditional dealer games such as blackjack. Nonetheless, it’s their online pokies that have garnered the most acclaim. Some of these include 300 Shields, Jackpot Jester and Foxin’ Wins – an instant win scratch game variant is also available for the latter game and is highly popular.
When you visit a top games casino online, game developers such as NetEnt, Microgaming and SG Gaming tend to dominate the lobbies with their acclaimed casino games. There’s also a pretty decent chance that you’ll come across a game or two from Pariplay. In fact, this particular iGaming specialist boasts a portfolio of more than 4000 games and serves them to more than 15 regulated markets around the world. Gamers who like to play online regularly will recognise some of their most famous casino game titles. The most well-known examples include slots such as Wolf Riches and Fruit Basket. Pariplay has also released roulette and blackjack card games, as well as instants and scratch cards. Of the latter two categories, standout games include $100,000 Cash Cuisine, Zodiac Fortune and Santa’s Workshop
Innovation is the name of the game with Pragmatic Play. Its expansive casino game collection comprises online pokie machines, video poker titles and iconic dealer games such as blackjack and baccarat. In common with all of the major developers of casino games, Pragmatic Play pays close attention to players that enjoy gambling on the go. Its range of table games and slots are written in HTML5, so in terms of responsive gaming, casinos have access to a superb range of mobile-ready games.
The clue’s in the name with this esteemed iGaming development. You won’t find video poker, blackjack or roulette in its massive portfolio. No, outstanding, ground-breaking slots is where it’s at for Quick Spin with most of its games appearing in casinos the world-over. Some of the most notable examples include Sugar Trail, Sinbad and King Collosus.
Having been established in 2002, Realistic Games hasn’t been around for quite as long as some of the other casino game developers mentioned here. Nonetheless, it’s drawn the attentions of many top online casino operators, among them Bet 365, Bet Victor, Stan James, Sporting bet and Black Spins Casino. In addition to three reel and five reel slot variants, Realistic has developed card and roulette games as well as online instants such as Hi Lo Gambler and Keno.
SG Gaming is part of the Scientific Games Corporation and is one of the major providers of casino games for land based venues, arcades and betting establishments. It also does a decent line in online card games such as blackjack as well as roulette. SG Gaming’s main area of expertise, in terms of web-based titles, is the creation of real money slots. Famous examples include Action Bank and the Rainbow Riches franchise (originally developed by Barcrest). For online casinos, games from this esteemed company can really complement their portfolios. This is why Black Spins Casino partners with this acclaimed brand.
Tips for Playing Online Casino Games
You should now have a pretty good idea about the kinds of online casino games that you’ll be able to play here at Black Spins Casino. You’ll probably be familiar with some of the game developers that we work with as well. So how do you protect your bank balance and increase your chances of winning some money when playing these games? Well, you’ll need to accept that all casino games have some sort of house edge. Depending on the game, this can be expressed in different ways because, as you’ll see, the term ‘house edge’ isn’t usually used when describing slots at online casinos. Anyway, scroll down as we now provide a few tips that should, at the very least, help you from hemorrhaging money while enhancing your odds of walking away with a few bucks. Bear in mind that much of what follows is aimed at newbies.
Tips for Playing Pokies
If you’re looking to play online pokies to the exclusion of all else, then you’ll need to become familiar with some of the following terms before committing your money. RTP and its relationship with ‘house edge’ is a good starting point.
First of all, check the RTP of any reel-based game. This is a percentage that describes how much a slot machine will pay-out per one hundred bets. Anything above 97% is considered pretty good these days – in fact you’ll be hard-pushed to find a game with anything lower. So how does it work in relation to house edge?
RTP v House Edge
An RTP is basically the same as a house edge but expressed in a different way. So for example, a pokie that offers a 91% RTP will have a house edge of of 9%. The latter expression is used by casinos to explain the advantage they have over the player in regards to table-based games such as roulette, blackjack or poker. Unlike ‘house edge’, an RTP is used exclusively for slots. If you prefer to use the ‘house edge’ in setting your budget for playing slots, try and stick to games with a house edge of at most 3%.
In addition to RTP and house edge, you should also check the volatility as well. The pay-out frequencies of any online casino pokie varies. Some pay out regular albeit small amounts of money and are of a low volatility. High volatility pokies are those that pay out less frequent but larger sums of money. Volatility is an especially important consideration when planning your gambling budget. Happily, most of the best online casino sites will include information about RTP and Volatility.
Tips for Playing Pokies Progressive Jackpots
RTP and volatility should also be considered when playing casino games online that offer progressive jackpots. You should also bear in mind that the chances of bagging a progress jackpot are extremely remote. So don’t get blinded by the prospect of winning life-altering amounts of money. Instead focus on standard wins. The best online pokie games with progressive jackpots include excellent, highly-engaging bonus rounds and in-game elements that are pretty lucrative in their own right. So the key here is to be as realistic as possible. That way, you’ll be far less likely to spend inordinate amounts of money in pursuing what amounts to an impossible dream.
Tips for Playing Instant Win Games
Real money games such as scratchies are extremely simple to play and offer a pleasant, if undemanding distraction. But like any games found at online casinos, you’ll want to play sensibly. As well as setting a reasonable budget, it’s worth remembering that scratchies, while a lot of fun, are not ideal money back games. Sure, it’s more than possible to win some top prizes. But don’t expect to cover your losses in the long term. In order to improve your chances of winning money, try to play with more cards. Obviously, the more you play with, the better your chances of receiving a pay-out.
Tips for Playing Slingo
Like we mentioned earlier, casinos offer slingo games to players looking for a break from standard casino game titles. In order to boost your chances of winning money games such as slingo, it’s sometimes worth buying extra spins in order to fill those boxes. Be mindful that doing so can be a costly practice, so keep an eye on your bankroll. While this approach doesn’t guarantee wins, you’ll most definitely have a better chance of landing a prize. Some slingo game variants also feature multipliers that help you to accumulate points which, in turn, can be used to win cash/money prizes.
