Online casinos usually have hundreds of games for us to choose from irrespective of the software provider behind it. How many games you get depends on the casino you are at and the software provider powering it.
Slots form the biggest chunk of games for all providers except the specialists, like Evolution Gaming for live casino gambling. This is because they are hugely popular among players: they are fun to play, deliver superb winning opportunities and don’t require any special skills to master; a healthy dose of luck will do.
