Poker

This a game enjoyed by millions of Americans and people around the world. The 2017 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas just saw an incredible 7,200 players ante up the $10,000 entry fee to play in the world championship. Just as in ‘live’ poker, the online game has expanded across the globe as well. You can play in cash games or tournaments 24/7. Poker variations include Texas Hold’em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Pot Limit Omaha, 7-Card Stud, Razz, Badugi. Poker can be played at limits or no limit, which means a player can bet their all of their chips at any time. In the table games area of a casino you’ll 

Roulette


Are you watching the wheel go round and round? This is another popular game because it offers excitement, it’s fun to play and it’s easy. As that ball spins, there is a definite sweat. It leaves you on the edge of your seat.  Roulette is a very common form of betting. It is a game where the players must guess which number will come up when a ball is dropped into a spinning wheel. Each different number or combination of numbers pays a certain amount, should it be the winning number. Much like a one ball game of bingo, the element of luck plays a large part.

Strategic betting is a common part of the game. There are those who make a point of giving as many chips to the table as possible in the hope that a huge win will come from one or two of their bets, making a small profit on their initial outlay. Tactics such as these can backfire, but when they pay off it can be a small fortune that passes between the house and the player.

Real money online casino sites have many different roulette tables for you to try your hand. Playing online can give you a taste of the game and allow you to see what a bigger game might be like and help you decide whether it's something you'd be more interested in pursuing further.

Blackjack


Blackjack is the number one casino table game by a long way. When you consider the low house edge, elements of skill in making the right decisions and a large number of variations (many with interesting side bets), you will understand why it maintains its number one ranking. Keep in mind that those side bets do have a high house edge compared to the main game. If the chance of a big win or extra entertainment balances this – then by all means enjoy them. The newest game to grab the imagination of online players is the live dealer games – where you’ll play against a dealer in real time from a remote studio.

Top Casino Games

What games do you play? Everybody has a favourite casino game. Personally, I like poker. Others choose slot machines, roulette, blackjack, craps or video poker as their gambling entertainment. There’s no sense entering a casino to put money down on an endeavour you don’t enjoy. Never played blackjack? Why are you risking your hard earned cash trying to hit twenty-one? Not sure what a check-raise is? Perhaps you should avoid the poker room. The most important things to consider when deciding to play at a brick and mortar casino or dabble in some online gambling are your enjoyment level, your understanding of the rules of the game and your bankroll. 1) Play a game you consider to be fun. 2) Do you know how to play the game you’re betting money on? And, 3) Can you afford to lose at the limits you’re playing?

For the purposes of this article, let’s assume points ‘2’ & ‘3’ are taken care of. You know the rules of the game you are playing and you are playing low stakes that won’t leave you in a bind if you’re unlucky. So, what are the most enjoyable, most popular casino games?

Slots


So many games to choose from and so many lines to play. Gone are the days of the one armed bandits and single line draws for three sevens. Nowadays, there is every type of game and many of the most popular, most fun to play, are based on TV shows or top-rated movies. Land-based casinos are littered with slot banks featuring games like Lord Of The Rings, Iron Man 2, Deal or No Deal, X-Men and the Incredible Hulk. These games come with all the bells and whistles; dynamite graphics, bonus spins and multiple lines. Some people give slots a bad rap suggesting they’re a ‘waste of money’ because the odds are in the house’s favour. Some think all the money is being wagered in the tables games area. Truth be told? It’s a proven fact that more people go to casinos to play slots than anything else. This translates to online casinos as well.  More and more people are using the internet to gamble from the comforts of their own home. Software managers are always upping the ante too; developing better games, better graphics and more entertainment.


Remember: Set a budget and have fun!
