Online casino expert Eve Luneborg, at new online casinos site Kongebonus, has commented on the findings: “It is interesting to see online keno, lottery, and bingo games take the top spots in the ranking, as all are simple number drawing games that do not require any strategy or skill from the player. Perhaps games of chance like these are more palatable to online players who do not want to play more complex games like poker or blackjack and prefer straightforward, low risk casino games.

“Arguably, the simplicity of these games is also more enjoyable, and anyone can play them. Whether you are a seasoned gambler or have no experience playing casino games online, you could easily win a game of keno, lottery, or bingo. No pressure, no stress, no skill – just have fun!”
