Free Solitaire Online

Don’t feel like downloading and installing games on your PC? Don’t worry, you can find many types of free online Solitaire playable directly from your browser. One of them is  Net Solitaire  which includes Klondike, Spider, Pyramid, FreeCell and many other card pastimes that can be used completely free of charge. The site does not require registration and is based on HTML5 technology, which means that it works on all browsers and all devices (including smartphones and tablets) without the need for Flash Player, Java or other special plugins.

I suggest you also experiment with  World of Solitaire which offers a wide range of playable Solitaire games without having to install absolutely anything on your computer and, of course, without spending a cent. It includes the “evergreen” Klondike but also the Spider, the FreeCell, La Belle Lucie, the Pyramid and many more. Again, all games are in HTML5.

There are also other sites you can turn to to play a “little game” of online Solitaire. Among the most interesting are  Kongregate and Y8 which both offer a huge range of online Flash solitaire games and therefore require Flash Player to work (if you remember, I explained how to download it in my article on how to install Flash Player ) unlike Net Solitaire and World of Solitaire. To play, all you have to do is click on the preview image of the video game you want to start.
