New Skill Games for a New Year

Thought of your New Year’s Resolutions? Here’s mine: to upskill with skill games.

When I started in the industry, I didn’t know a thing about gaming. Honestly. I hadn’t heard of 888 Casino, Rummy Royal or Dream Bingo, and I was blissfully ignorant to the furore surrounding Full Tilt Poker. I had a vague notion that slot machines were loud, ringing things to be found in the back of the pub. To me, skill games were the ones where you control a giant claw and try to get a fluffy bunny.

Interestingly, it’s entirely possible to hop onto 32Red Rummy and write a comprehensive evaluation of the bonus structure without knowing how to play gin rummy. But it’s a very clinical way to operate. How are you supposed to understand where the excitement lies, or what the point of it all is?

So I’ve been learning and playing the games that we love to play and now I’m thoroughly obsessed with bingo, poker and blackjack. Next on the list: gin rummy, which has always seemed to me to be something old people play whilst tucking their cardigans around their feeble bodies, but which Rummy Royal has promised is one of the best card games going.

I think the New Year is a perfect time to think about learning and trying new things. What will you be doing in the New Year?
