There are more than 600 slots altogether, drawn from a range of high-end developers and forming the lion’s share of The Pools’ game library.
Whilst The Pools may not boast as many titles as some of the more specialist slot sites, its strategy of offering a high-quality selection containing something for everyone is highly effective.
The Home tab within the casino section is the best place to start. I found this contained several helpful categories, which might have warranted separate tabs of their own. Here you’ll find new games, Megaways and Drops & Wins, etc.
The dedicated Jackpots tab is home to 32 jackpot titles, and the current value of each is displayed clearly, which makes things easy for players who are holding out for huge wins. Included here are a few WowPot games, which recently broke the record for the largest single online jackpot payout when one lucky player won more than €38 million!
In addition to regular slots, The Pools’ casino area is home to a specific Slingo section containing more than 50 games.
Other casino games
The Table Games tab contains 150 or so games, but these overlap with the Live Dealer section. In terms of video RNG-based table games, The Pools really impresses, with a good deal more to offer than some industry-leading casinos. If this is your thing, look no further.
In total, there are 15 live dealer games available, with all the basics covered. Live casino fans will find the offerings here mostly familiar, spanning blackjack, roulette, sic bo, baccarat and poker, as well as Monopoly, Deal or No Deal, and some live lotto games.
Beyond slots, table games and live games, The Pools offers dedicated Sports, Arcade, Football Pools and Lotto sections. Because of this site’s legacy, these seem worthy of a shoutout.
The sportsbook is comprehensive yet, compared to some others, easy to look at. The interface has been kept clean, with handy tabs for in-play games, seasonal events, special sports promos and more.
The ambiguously named Arcade section contains a small number of unique mini games, scratchcards and exclusives. Even for committed slots fans, it’s worth taking a look – something might catch your eye.
In terms of Lotto games, The Pools goes above and beyond. I found some very tempting offers of games with prizes such as “£1 million every year for a decade”. There are 4 lotto games to choose from and they run frequently.
Last but not least, the Football Pools is running just as it always has, except that its online now, and there are several additional variations too.
All in all, there’s a bit of almost everything on The Pools’ site. The only thing you won’t find is bingo, but this omission isn’t likely to turn many players off considering the quality of what is on offer.
