Gambling has been around since ages past. Where we might have needed to organize a tavern meeting with a group of village acquaintances and friends 3,000 years ago, or taken a family vacation to Las Vegas or Macau (whichever is closer) 30 years ago, we now enjoy the convenience of modern technology to power our jackpot hitting fantasies. With the ubiquity of our always connected devices, whether they be our work computers sitting in our office, begging to be used for non-productive purposes once our boss leaves the room, or the even simpler smart phones in our pockets, gambling has never been easier.

Nor has gambling been more widespread. With high profile figures from some of the most popular sports leagues in the world like NBA Commissioner Adam Silver advocating for legal betting in professional basketball, or the NFL’s Attorney Brook Gardiner deflecting the pressure for legal betting in professional American Football, it seems like betting of all forms for all types of games is in the each day’s new headlines.

With that in mind, how can you get in on the betting fun? For starters, going to the aforementioned worldwide Meccas of gambling is not a bad place. But for those of us who just want to get started more simply, what are some of the best, most popular games to play online that are fun, and that offer the chance to win big? Without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the hottest games around today.

Blackjack

While not quite representing the payout of the 1-3 odds in predicting Indiana Governor Mike Pence as Donald Trump’s VP choice, what blackjack is to many familiar with the game is a safe bet. It is familiar to a large crowd, it is easy to pick up and learn if you are not familiar, and while the winnings are not going to be huge, the likelihood of winning is much better. There is a reason it is more popular around the world than games like roulette, after all. Without having to study up on counting cards or any other sort of strategy, you stand a good chance of hitting some sort of jackpot, even if it is just modest. Just do not push fate and bid recklessly, that is a recipe for long-term losing.

Bingo

One of the great things you can learn about bingo is that it is truly a social game. Therein lies the appeal of all the elderly people in retirement homes playing this classic by the tens of thousands, or the draw of bingo on cruise ships – when there are about a thousand other things you could be doing on the high ocean. As the best bingo sites demonstrate, there is an endless degree of variety in terms of themes to choose from. But again, do not forget to mingle in the chat rooms. It is there where a lot of the true magic happens, with strangers becoming friends, and stories being told all over the simple game of bingo. Winning is always a hoot, too!

Poker

This one is a doozy. While real life poker is a game of reads and tells, the online variant is nuanced differently for obvious reasons: there are no visible cues to pick out from the physical presence of the people who are playing across the world with you. Instead, the online poker player has to deduce patterns over a period of time from the folks they play with, which makes it somewhat of an investment. Here too is tons of variety, so go wild!
