Carrom Game

The world is full of real money and virtual money games through which you can sharpen your skills to the best. If we talk about carrom board, it comes under skill-based board games and is a very popular game among teenagers. It is preeminent in India. The height of this game becomes double in online platforms where a user can play and earn real money. The player has to sink all the nine carroms(either black or white) before other opponents to win the game. So, a game that is so popular among youngsters will be highly beneficial for an iGaming platform.

Pool Game

The pool is a famous online pool game that is professionally played by users all over the world. The 8 ball pool game has gained immense attention from cue sports players. This pool game is usually played on a pool table as a ‘singles’ or ‘doubles’ game with cue sticks as well as 16 balls, one cue ball to strike other balls, and 15 object balls.

The objective of an 8 ball pool is to put all your designated balls (which can be solids or stripes) in the 6 pockets, and then the 8 ball (black ball) at the end. The player who pots the 8 ball/black ball after all balls (Solid or Stripes) wins the game, but if the player pots the 8 ball/black ball before any ball is left, the other player will win the game. Online pool games have a separate fanbase, you win, you earn. Adding Pool games to an iGaming platform will be highly beneficial.

Ludo Game

Ludo is one of the most popular board games in India. Almost every gamer would have played this game. Ludo is a skill & strategy-based board game that has 2 modes of play. One is ‘Snake & ladder’ and the other is ‘Multiplayer mode’ where a maximum of 4 players can play the game.

In the multiplayer game, the objective is to enter all 4 pawns in the ‘HOME’ box with the help of ludo numbers. The player who enters all 4 pawns first is the winner. The opponent can kill the pawn in the middle if the required ludo number comes.

In ‘Snake & ladder’ mode, the player has to reach the 100th box with the help of ludo numbers and ladders. The player who reaches the 100th box first is the winner. However, if the player faces snakes in the middle the number will go down. The popularity of Ludo offline or online is of the same level. So, adding a Ludo game to an iGaming platform won’t be a bad idea.

Cell connect

Mahjong solitaire is a single-player matching game that uses a set of mahjong tiles rather than cards. It is more commonly played on a smartphone than as a physical tabletop game. The 144 tiles are arranged in a special four-layer pattern with their faces upwards. A tile is said to be open or exposed if it can be moved either left or right without disturbing other tiles. The goal is to match open pairs of identical tiles and remove them from the board, exposing the tiles under them for play. The game is finished when all pairs of tiles have been removed from the board or when no exposed pairs are remaining. Mahjong is another game that provides high competition and at the same time offers fun & excitement. Mahjong can be an asset to any iGaming platform.
