A look at some of the most popular online games of 2019


Online gaming represents a huge global industry, and one that generated $137.9 billion in 2018. Interestingly, mobile revenues now account for more than 50% of this market, and this percentage is likely to grow incrementally going forward.

Regardless of how you access your favourite virtual gaming platform, however, you’ll be able to select from a vast and diverse range of titles that should appeal to both serious and casual gamers alike.

We’ve listed three of this years’ most popular games below, whilst asking what makes them so special:

Fortnite Battle Royale

Every list of this type should start with this entry, with Fortnite Battle Royale established as one of the most popular online games of all-time.

This game has a staggering 3.4 million concurrent players across all major platforms, from the PS4 and Xbox One to your choice of mobile handset.

Even more incredibly, this game achieved these figures less than a year since its release, with its combination of free-to-access gameplay and low system requirements complimented superbly by outstanding graphics.

As first-person shooters go, this is a genuinely immersive and accessible game, and one that can be enjoyed wherever you are in the world.fortnite

90-Ball Big Ben Bingo

If you like to play online bingo on your home computer or mobile, you’ll know that there’s a huge diversity of titles currently available on the World Wide Web.

One of the most stand out versions is the 90-Ball Big Ben iteration, which is a truly enthralling title that’s boasts some incredible promotions and outstanding visual effects and audio features.

Above all else, players can win a whopping jackpot worth up to £1000 through this game, which we’re sure you’ll agree is not bad for a few minutes work!

Of course, to access this game you’ll need to identify a viable bingo site or online sportsbook, so be sure to compare the market in detail before making a selection. This will help you make an informed decision that leads to you leveraging the very best real-time promotions!

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)

Whilst the Fortnite franchise may now be blazing a trail for all other first-person shooter and strategy games online, the success of these titles would not have been possible were it not for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Make no mistake; this game set the original benchmark for titles in this genre, and it continues to sell in huge volumes across the globe to this very day.

PUGB certainly remains a great and accessible game in its own right, with many arguing that its gritty and more-mature gameplay is superior to Fortnite’s cartoonish alternatives. So, if you’re all about the Battle Royale craze but prefer a more down to earth game, PUGB is undoubtedly the best option for you.

This game currently has a whopping two million concurrent players active on the Stream platform alone, with many more enjoying the title on PC, Xbox One, Android and iOS platforms. So, if you want to check this out, you’ll have ample opportunity to do no matter what device you’re using!
