If you’re on a relatively tight budget and don’t have a great deal of money to spend but still fancy a few spins of an online slot machine, or a few hands of a popular card game, here are some of the best online casino games that you may want to check out.
Top online casino games you can play on a budget
Almost every online casino game out there today has a wide betting range that caters to everyone from low rollers to high rollers. In other words, you can play almost ANY online casino game, even on a shoestring budget. There are very few games that do NOT allow you to adjust the stake to suit your budget. For example, in most online casino games today, you can play from as little as C$0.10 to C$0.50 per hand, round, or spin.
Therefore, some of the best online casino games to play on a budget include the following popular categories:
- Table & Card Games (e.g., Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, Poker)
- Online Slot Machines (e.g., 3-Reel Slots, 5-Reel Slots, 6-Reel Megaways Slots, Progressive Jackpot Slots, and more)
- Live Dealer Games
- Instant Win & Lotto-style games (e.g., Online Scratchcards, Online Keno, and Online Bingo)
- Video Poker Games (e.g., Aces & Faces, Jacks or Better, etc.)
Tips for playing casino games on a budget
Here are several useful tips for playing casino games on a budget. First of all, go into the casino (whether it’s an online casino or offline/land-based casino) with a budget and try your hardest not to spend more than you budgeted for. A great way to do this when playing online would be to set deposit limits from the moment you sign up to a casino site. You can do this when logged into your account, and it’s one of the best ‘safer gambling’ tools currently available to online casino players.
Another great way to ensure that you don’t overspend is to adjust your stake as soon as you launch any of your favourite online casino games. For example, you may have only deposited C$10 at the casino, but the default stake in the online slot that you just launched may be set to C$2.50 per spin. This means that you would only get four spins, and if you lose all four spins, your casino session time could be over before it even begins.
You may want to reduce your stake to around C$0.10 or C$0.20 per spin to give you more time playing your favourite game. You can reduce or increase your stake using the player controls that are generally located beneath the reels. Reading the rules of a game before you start playing a game is also highly recommended.
What are deposit limits?
At many online casinos today, you can set deposit limits, spending limits, win/loss limits, and even session time limits. As soon as you have reached the limits that you have set, a pop-up notification will appear on the screen to inform you. Let’s just say that you set a C$50 monthly deposit limit on the fifth day of the month. If you deposit the full C$50 in one go, it means that you wouldn’t be able to deposit any more money until the fifth day of the following month. If you try to deposit more, you simply wouldn’t be able to.
If you deposited just C$30 on that particular day of the month, then you could only deposit another C$20 from the moment you deposited the C$30 until the fifth day of the next month, and so on. In other words, setting your limits can really help you stay in much better control of how much money you spend at an online casino. To set your limits, you need to log in to your account and then click on the safer gambling tools button or the responsible gambling tools button.
If you can’t seem to find out how to set your limits, it might be a good idea to try and get in touch with a friendly and professionally trained member of the casino’s support team. They should be able to point you in the right direction, and the best way to reach them is normally via the live chat feature.
