Online iGaming Guide

Back to Guide

The first online iGaming sites first swung open their virtual doors back in the 1990s, allowing people to enjoy their favourite card and table games, including blackjack, baccarat, and roulette.

More than 20 years on, iGaming continues to grow in popularity, leading to more and more people looking to start playing for the first time. If you are one of these beginners, then you might be wondering about where to get started, which games you should play, or how to keep yourself safe.

There’s no need to feel bamboozled. Our handy guide covers everything you could ever want to know about gaming as a new player.

Different types of online slots

If you’ve never played at online gaming site, you might imagine that there are a handful of different options to choose from. But you’re in for a pleasant surprise as you’ll actually find hundreds or even thousands of different options. Of all these games, here are the most popular ones.


Slot machines were first created in the 19th century, but they’ve come a long way since then. Even if you’ve never played on one, you’ll be familiar with the spinning reels, the colourful symbols, and the payouts they give when you land on a winning combination.

Today, you’ll find hundreds of different video slot games to play online covering just about every conceivable theme imaginable from the Ancient Greeks to space. Each one has its own unique features too, including bonuses, mini-games, animations, and additional paylines.

With so much choice, you’ll almost certainly find a slot game that’s up your street.

Real money games vs free games

When you play games at an iGaming site, you can often choose between real money games and free games. Not all games will be available for free, though you can usually find a good selection.

The only real difference between real money and free games is whether you place your wagers with real or play money. The former requires you to make a deposit from your bank account (or another payment source) first and any winnings will be paid out as real money.

On the other hand, the play money wagers you make in free games won’t pay out real money. This is a popular option among players that want to learn the ropes or just want to play without staking any of their own cash.

Understanding the odds and return-to-player (RTP)

Every game has its own odds, though they may not always be displayed in the same way that you’d find in a sportsbook. On some games, you’ll hear the term “house edge” batted around a lot while you may see references to an return-to-player (RTP) rate when you look at slots.

In slot games, the RTP is expressed as a percentage and is a theoretical expression of how much of your stake you can expect to have returned to you if you play the game for a very long time.

For example, if the RTP is 90%, then you might receive $90 from $100 of wagers. However, some players will get more than this and others will get less. This unpredictability is what makes slot games fun and why millions of people enjoy them each year.

Online slot bonuses in a nutshell

Players can often take advantage of online bonuses, some of the most common options are:

  • Welcome bonuses for new players
  • Reload/deposit bonuses that match the amount you add to your account
  • Free spins to use on slots
  • Levelz - a special mini-slot that rewards loyal players

You can use bonus funds and spins to play your favourite slot games in the same way you would with real money, though there may be wagering requirements that you’ll need to meet before withdrawing bonus winnings.
