Parlor Games at Internet Casinos
Parlor Games (Parlour Games) are also often referred to as Variety Games, Speciality Games, Arcade Games, Asian Games, or just Other Games. They tend to include lottery-style games such as bingo, keno or online scratchcards and they are the perfect alternative for players who are looking to play something other than standard Vegas-style table and card games, video pokers or online slots machines.
Depending on which software provider has developed this range of Parlor Games will determine exactly which category they fall into when visiting certain online casinos. For example, Microgaming calls their Parlor Games ‘Variety Games’, and Playtech’s Parlor Games can generally be found in a section called Arcade Games, and so on.
They are generally not hard to find and they can usually be played over an instant flash casino platform or via a casino download client. Some of the most exciting Parlor Games from Microgaming included games such as Super Bonus Bingo, Keno, Samba Bingo, Mayan Bingo, Enchanted Woods, Cashapillar (scratchcard), Max Damage and the Alien Attack (arcade-slot), Granny Prix, Hexaline and Electro Bingo.
Other great titles from Microgaming to keep an eye out for include Ballistic Bingo, Bingo Bonanza, Halloweenies Scratchcard, Pharaoh Bingo, Germinator, Abra-Kebab-Ra, Wheel of Riches, Beer Fest, Bubble Bonanza, Wheel of Riches, Four by Four, Big Break, Bowled Over and Card Climber.
When visiting a Playtech powered online casino, you may want to look for some of their great Parlor Games such as Keno, Sports Balls, Mega Ball, Jackpot Darts, Dice Twister, Derby Day, Penalty Shootout, Pinball Roulette, Final Score, Frankie’s Fantastic 7s, Around the World, Hold’em Showdown and Spin and Win.
Most other software providers, such as Realtime Gaming (RTG), Cryptologic, WMS Gaming, IGT Interactive, Sheriff Gaming and various other top software providers have also developed a small range of these exciting games. Most of the other Parlor Games that you can find at today’s online casinos have been developed by software providers that specialise in producing what is commonly referred to as ‘soft gaming’ content. There are enough Parlor Games available online to keep most players entertained for hours at a time.
