Wondering what to do on a Friday night in? Whether you’re after a bit of well-deserved ‘me time’ at the end of the working week or you want to invite friends over for some stay-at-home entertainment, you can easily get the fun times rolling with a few well-chosen online casino games, from online slots to American Roulette and video poker. Read on for a list of the best casino games to play online at BetMGM Casino — all perfect entertainment for a Friday evening. 

Poker Tournaments

Getting involved in a poker tournament at BetMGM Casino is easy, and it’s guaranteed fun and action from start to finish. Whether you’ve been playing casino table games for years or you’re a novice, these tournaments aren’t nearly as scary as they sound. BetMGM gives you access to a free Poker Players’ Guide, which contains all the tips and information you need to learn the game or brush up on your skills. When you’re ready to put your knowledge to the test, tournaments are a great way to get started. With more than 70 daily events on offer, including some quick-fire sit-and-go tourneys, you can take your pick of the action — no more wondering what to do on a Friday night at home.

Game King Video Poker

If poker tournaments or online poker cash games aren’t your thing, consider trying Game King Video Poker. This game offers an impressive nine different video poker formats, including classics like jacks or better and deuces wild, along with some variations you’ve probably never encountered before, such as joker poker and double bonus poker.

Looking for balanced gameplay? You’re in luck. Game King Video Poker has medium volatility and an exceptionally high return to player (RTP) of between 97.80% and 99.20%. This game delivers a premium experience whether you’re new to video poker or a pro. Its user-friendly interface means adjusting bet sizes and holding and drawing cards is a cinch. 

American Roulette

Evolution Gaming’s American Roulette is a popular casino game to play online — and one that always gets top marks from gamblers. It ticks all the boxes, from realistic graphics that transport you to a buzzing roulette table on a glitzy casino floor to the number of betting options available. You get to choose from inside bets, such as straight-up, corner, split, and street bets, as well as outside bets, like column, dozen, even/odds, high/low, and color bets.

Another perk of this particular roulette game is its Favorite Bets feature, allowing you to save up to three of your most commonly used bet configurations for your convenience.

Live Dealer Casino Games

Live dealer online casino games combine online gaming with brick-and-mortar casino gambling. You play a game that’s live-streamed to players and includes a real-life dealer and other players with whom you can interact via a chat box as the action unfolds — all on the device of your choice.

Playing live dealer casino games gives you the opportunity to stay in while also connecting with others in an engaging game of online roulette, craps, poker, or baccarat — and if you prefer to play blackjack at an online casino, BetMGM also has several options for you to choose from.  

Online Slots

If you’re aiming for a quiet Friday night at home, BetMGM’s scatalog of online slots is one of the best ways to stay entertained, with a huge choice of titles, themes, and game mechanics to match your mood. Choose from calming games and unusual games, or head straight to the jackpot slots where potentially massive payouts await. 

When you play slots online, you get to enjoy stunning visuals, exciting game features, and a shot at unlocking major fixed or progressive jackpot prizes. Some of the titles available at BetMGM have been released to players ahead of most other casinos, while others have been developed exclusively for BetMGM customers. Does this sound like the perfect Friday night entertainment? Then have a look at our Exclusive Games offering.
