The casino games that are popular in Europe are slightly different from the ones played in United States of America. The popular games in European Online Casinos are as follows:
o Blackjack – The most popular versions of Blackjack played online are Blackjack Multi-hand, Blackjack Multi-split and Blackjack Single Split. In totality, Blackjack is one of the popular games played in European Online Casinos.
