Looking for an online casino game with a difference? Whether you’re bored of blackjack, slots, roulette, baccarat and want to expand your horizons, or simply want to see what whacky games the Internet has to offer, check out these seven bizarre online casino games for a totally different online gaming experience.
Microgaming’s Sterling Silver slot
The Sterling Silver slot game by software provider Microgaming is the only true stereoscopic 3D slot game available on the Internet and if you have access to a pair of 3D red and blue glasses you should definitely give this game a go. In Sterling Silver 3D, the slot symbols come to life as though bouncing out of the screen, creating a whole new depth to the game. The slot itself is nothing special, using a silver theme where symbols consist of blocks of silver and silver machinery, but wild symbols, a gamble feature and free spins up the excitement levels.
Sterling Silver comes with a warning that playing in 3D can lead to visual fatigue and other side effects, but a standard 2D version is also available. If you don’t have access to a pair of 3D glasses or are feeling weird from playing in 3D, and all you need to do to play in standard 2D mode is hit the 3D button in the top right hand corner to switch over.
Blackjack Party by Evolution Gaming takes the interactive experience of live dealer gaming to a whole new level. While the game itself is just a standard version of blackjack, it is hosted by a duo of charismatic entertainers who have been professionally trained for television. Rather than just watching a croupier deal cards, in Blackjack Party you get to watch as the bubbly dealers partake in friendly banter, chat to the players, make jokes and provide guidance, with the focus being on fun. This is a low stakes blackjack variant where the party vibes are the main attraction, and is a must for players who want to take advantage of the convenience of online play but miss the interactive side of the casino experience.
If you happen to have access to an Oculus Rift headset, you can experience the latest and most bizarre form of online gambling – virtual reality slot games. Offered by leading online casino Slots Million, players get to walk the aisles of a virtual slot lounge designed to look just like a gaming room in a land based casino. You can interact with other players from across the globe, or sit yourself down at any of the virtual slot machines to play games in full 3D. Some of the most popular online slots have been optimised for virtual reality play, including Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Scarface, Twin Spin, Foxin Wins and Fisticuffs.
Playboy Live Dealer
Live casino games hosted by beautiful women dressed as sexy Playboy Bunnies, need we say more? Microgaming’s platform of Live Playboy games is a shining example of the innovative possibilities that lie within the world of online gaming, and you don’t need to head to Las Vegas to enjoy the experience. Choose from Playboy Blackjack, Playboy Baccarat and Playboy Roulette, with games streamed in real time via a live video feed direct to your computer. Enjoy the eye candy along with the thrill of scoring some real cash wins.
Hairy Fairies scratch card
If you’re a fan of scratch cards and other luck-based games, you have to give Hairy Fairies a go. This Microgaming online scratchie variant uses a theme too good to resist – a bunch of fat, beer-swilling men dressed as fairies hovering above a backyard barbecue. This game requires absolutely no skill to play, as all you need to do is click to select nine of the 12 beer gutted fairies to reveal their hidden prize amounts. If you match three of the hidden prize values, you win that amount in cash. Too easy, and too ridiculous not to try at least once.
A Night with Cleo slot game
Only available at select casinos, A Night with Cleo is an online slot game with a naughty side. Instead of using a traditional gamble feature which typically gives players the chance to double their winnings by guessing the correct colour or suit of a face-down card, A Night with Cleo offers a more risqué gamble. After any winning spin, you have the option of clicking the unique Double Up feature where you guess which one Cleo’s flowers is hiding the prize. Not only does a correct guess give you the chance to double your winnings, but it will also remove an item of Cleopatra’s clothing. Think of it like strip poker, but for a slot game. Why? Why the hell not!
Ka$hatoa is a niche game that’s available at several of our recommended Microgaming casinos, and it makes our list of bizarre games based on the absurdity of its concept. Basically, Kashatoa is a warped version of a pinball game, with the aim being to get the ball to successfully drop through a series of blocks in order to land in a winning space. Absolutely no skill or strategy is needed and the player has no control over the results – you simply click to select the size of your bet and hit the play button to launch a pinball onto the playing field. The beauty is if you get the ball through the maze, you can win anywhere from double to 30 times the size of your bet, so it can be a good way to pocket some winnings if luck is on your side.
