As our societies shut down and we were forced to come to grips with a new reality during the pandemic, a lot of things changed. We had to get used to not seeing friends and family as often as we would like, working became something many of us did in sweatpants on our couches, and many people found new hobbies.  

One of the most popular forms of online entertainment during the pandemic was playing on online casinos. Gambling online has since its inception always been a popular pastime for many, but the combination of added free time and a bit of spare cash meant that a lot of people found themselves winding down after a working day with some gambling on their favorite online casino

But what are the most popular formats to play online? Today a prospective customer is faced with a wide array of options when it comes to what and how they want to play. Join us as we list the hottest gambling forms currently being played on online casinos.


Videoslots are the most popular form of casino games online by a long shot. These are, as the name implies, derived and drawing heavy inspiration from traditional slot machines and offer a fast-paced and colorful experience. These have grown heavily in popularity in recent years as they are generally very easy to pick up and understand, while they still offer a fun and interesting way of playing. 

Today this is offered on practically all online casinos with an emphasis on gaming instead of betting. Videoslots are also often the games where one can use a welcome bonus to gain an advantageous start to their gambling on a specific site.

Videoslots have also grown so popular due to the simple fact that there are often hundreds of different games to choose from. These are all played in similar ways but with different themes, ensuring that there is always something for everyone. 

Live casino 

This is something that has been around for a couple of years, but that has exploded in popularity recently. As you can probably figure out from the name, live casino means that the players follow an actual dealer through a web camera. They perform all the moves of the game and ensures everything runs smoothly. 

The games available are mainly classic casino games such as Baccarat, Roulette, and Blackjack. These are often modified slightly to fit the format better. The biggest developer for these games is currently Evolution gaming.

Betting is still as popular as ever 

Betting is still extremely popular, and when live sports started again after the pandemic lockdown there was naturally a big surge of interest. Today many people have gone over to live betting, as it is a more dynamic and engaging way to bet. The most popular sport to bet on in the UK, and in Poland, is naturally Football.
