The 4 Best Free Online Gaming Sites
Free to Play Online Gaming
Many of us spend the majority of our time working on our computers. Everyone needs a little downtime. Here I share with you a list of some of the best gaming sites that are available online. Purchasing games can be terribly expensive. Here you will find a list of games with beautiful graphics and unlimited playtime, all for free!
Without a doubt, pogo.com is my favorite game site. I've been playing games on their site off and on since 2003. If you enjoy casual games such as hidden object, crossword puzzles, mahjong, card games, board games, strategy games, and time management games, then Pogo is a great fit for you.
On Pogo, you get to design and decorate a "mini," which is a smaller, cartoon version of you. With tokens you earn, you can shop in the "mini mall" and purchase decorations and clothing for your mini.
As already mentioned, by playing games you earn tokens. You can also use those tokens to enter into daily drawings where you can win varying gifts. And, if that wasn't enough, at the end of a Jackpot game, you are allowed to do a "Jackpot spin." With Jackpot spins, you can earn large amounts of tokens, or you could even win a monetary prize! No purchase necessary.
While Pogo is free to sign up and play, you do have the option to join Club Pogo. With Club Pogo you enjoy more games, no commercials, and many other fun bonus features. I myself, am a Club Pogo member, costing me approximately $40.00 for a year membership (which works out to be a little over $3.00 per month). In my opinion, it is well worth my money.

What is your favorite kind of game to play?
I certainly couldn't write an article about the best free online game sites without talking about Steam. While Steam is touted as being a one-stop-shop for online gaming and game purchasing, it is also a great place to commune with fellow gamers and safely download and play games for free.
Steam is more than a gaming website; it is a gaming platform. Simply sign up for free and install the Steam platform on your computer. Once installed, from the games drop-down menu you can select "Free to Play." From this list, you will find pages and pages of completely free games to download to your Steam platform and play! Steam has a lot to offer and is always adding new free and pay games.
Another cool thing about Steam is that they have plenty of absolutely free Virtual Reality games that you can use with your VR Gear. They also have many open-world games, also completely free to play.
Here is a list of categories for the free games that Steam offers. You can customize your search according to these:
- Free to Play
