Online casino games in WV
With more than a half-dozen online casinos active in West Virginia, there are plenty of different games that West Virginians or visitors to the Mountain State can play. Most of us can guess what these options are, but there may be some opportunities that would surprise you. So, here’s a rundown on every type of casino game you can play with your mobile device in West Virginia.
Every West Virginia online casino offers or will soon offer more than 100 different slots for play. Unlike actual slot machines, which are usually organized by their bet amounts, you can usually choose whatever size bet you’d like to make on every single online slot game. Online slots often allow you to auto-spin, too, if you don’t want to push the “spin” button 50 or 100 times.
Online slots in West Virginia come in the same fixed jackpot and progressive jackpot varieties that you find in person. Through the progressives, it is possible to put life-changing money into your pocket with a single spin. Be aware that progressive jackpots are usually tighter than fixed jackpot games because the casino has to fund the escalating grand prize.
Online video poker
Online casinos in West Virginia offer options for video poker, too. The exact number and variants of video poker available on each app is different, but most of them carry at least one version of the game.
Video poker remains the last holdout for the classic poker game five-card draw. The game, long the favorite in Old West saloons, is rarely seen in actual poker rooms anymore. So, if you want a bit of nostalgia, perhaps to harken back to games around the kitchen table, video poker can provide that doorway for you.
If an online casino offers table games of any kind, you can be certain that blackjack will be the game in the front and center of the roster. Many online casino sites in West Virginia even separate blackjack into its own tab, as it is not uncommon for them to have more than 10 variants of the game to play.
Every online casino will have standard blackjack to play. However, online blackjack games come in all different flavors. Thankfully, each blackjack game online has detailed instructions to help you understand how the game works. Make sure not to miss out if you decide to give a new blackjack game a try.
Most of the apps have at least one variant of roulette available for play. Roulette games tend to be separated into one of two varieties — American and European. The primary difference between the two versions is the number of zeroes found on each wheel. American wheels have two zeroes (0 and 00), while European wheels have only a single zero (0).
Other online table games
The presence of other table games on West Virginia online casinos is extremely spotty. Some apps, like DraftKings, BetMGM, and Caesars, have scads of table game options that include less-common table games along with multiple variants of blackjack and roulette. Other apps, like BetRivers and PointsBet, are still building their libraries and may only have a few options. Regardless, here are some of the most common “other” games that you may find to play under a site’s table games tab:
- Big Wheel
- Casino Hold’em
- Casino War
- Four Card Poker
- Let It Ride
- Mississippi Stud
- Pai Gow Poker
- Three Card Poker
- Ultimate Texas Hold’em
This list is not exhaustive and could likely include other games. Furthermore, as casinos expand their lists, more games will pop up. The best thing to do is check out your casino of choice if there’s a game you have in mind.
WV live dealer games
We’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about one of the newest and most exciting offerings on West Virginia online casino apps. Live dealer games allow you to play table games under the control of an actual flesh-and-blood dealer on an actual physical game. The dealers operate in a specially-designed studio and can interact with the players as they play. Live dealer games have proven popular in West Virginia and elsewhere because they solve one of the major drawbacks of online casino play — the loss of social interaction and the visceral experience of playing in a live casino.
The list below is a sample of what live dealer games are available in West Virginia. New games will likely appear in the future, so don’t take our list as the end of the story. Nevertheless, here are some of the live dealer casino games we are certain you can find in the Mountain State:
- Baccarat (BetMGM, DraftKings, Caesars, FanDuel)
- Blackjack and variants (BetMGM, DraftKings, Caesars)
- Three Card Poker (BetMGM, Caesars, FanDuel)
- Ultimate Texas Hold’em (BetMGM, FanDuel)
- Roulette and variants (BetMGM, DraftKings)
- Game shows (DraftKings)
- Casino Hold’em (Caesars)
