New Games Rock: Hot iGaming Genres That Rule the Polish Market

Online casino games are a weird bunch. Some pay close to nothing, and games like that bring life-changing amounts to those that play them right and have Lady Luck by their sides. There are games based on skill and those that rely solemnly on luck. It’s a real jungle out there, and the Polish casino market is no different. With thousands of new games that hit the market each year, it has only selected ones get the chance to remain engraved in the minds of Polish players.

But what are they? Anna Rosak, a digital specialist and gaming expert from Poland, knows all the answers. Rosak was there when the first online casino in her country hit the market and lived to see the constant change in the iGaming industry. She also believes that evolution is the key to success.

“Online gaming studios must keep delivering, even if the player is only topping up with small deposits. There is no way around it, as they expect more, and companies must deliver. Otherwise, players will turn to a brand that offers what they need. So casinos must dance as gamers play”, says Anna.

The Allure of Progressive Jackpot Games

The most prominent trend in the Polish gaming market is the rising popularity of progressive jackpot games. Simply put, games have a massive prize pot attached to them, but that is not where the story ends. The pot gets bigger with every single spin played, as a small amount from every bet is added. And Anna claims the biggest pots can reach millions of Euros.


“Polish market is being captivated by the existence of such massive prizes, and casinos tend to expand their jackpot portfolios to cater to player’s needs,” explains Anna and adds, “Content suppliers also have to keep up with the demand. For example, Microgaming, the brand behind the Mega Moollah series that gained worldwide recognition, is constantly adding new titles into the mix.”

Slot Sagas to Tell the Tale

Content suppliers release hundreds of new games each month. Any respectable casino supplier will make sure to add at least one new game monthly. But gamers from Poland are not craving new games. They are craving sequels, prequels, and spin-offs, based on the games they already love.

“I blame Marvel. They have created a whole cinematic universe, and now players want to experience a casino universe. I can’t blame them, but the passion for what is familiar is getting out of hand”, says Anna and adds, “There are only so many new games one can produce based on the existing plot line, so I don’t see this trend to last.”

But how do companies do it? The answer is hiding in new features, which always has to be more rewarding than in the previous episode. “It’s madness, but players love it. And who am I to judge?”, Anna wonders. “Yes, sloty online are definitely the most popular games in our region. The more new versions of good old slots – the better!”, Anna concludes.

Online Poker – The Game of Kings

After the poker boom in the early 2000s, online poker platforms went on a bit of a hiatus, at least in Poland. However, now it is coming back stronger than ever, as players discovered not only the world of peer-to-peer poker platforms, but all sorts of sub-genres that can help them enjoy the beloved card game.


“It is no longer all about the colourful video poker, or the peer-to-peer tournaments where you get eaten by high-roller sharks before you play the first hand. Polish players, now more than ever, enter the captivating world of casino poker”, explains Anna.

So, what’s so special about casino poker? According to the experts, you engage in the game against the house, and not others at the table. This important element of the game makes every win much sweeter, and therefore, the entire genre harder to resist.

Live Casinos for Authentic Experience

Casino poker is a very common genre at live casinos, but it is not the only one. A broad variety, combined with the latest technologies that enable broadcasting 24/7, made live gaming something Polish players can’t resist. Live roulette, baccarat, blackjack, or colourful game shows – the players from Eastern Europe are feasting upon every single table that comes their way.

The magic of live casinos relies on the realistic approach to gaming. From the comfort of their own homes, players can play with professional dealers, using professional equipment. And best of all, they get more games at their disposal, than they would at a brick-and-mortar establishment. Sounds like a pretty good experience.

“Staying in your pyjamas and playing luxurious and glamorous casino games all day? Where do I sign up?”, jokes Anna.
