When we think about gambling, it gives us a feeling of fun and excitement with a thought of winning. Unfortunately, we don’t always win. The real fun is found in the playing, not just winning. Here’s the list of the most popular and classic games you’ll find in casinos where you can even enjoy over the internet (online casino table games).

 

Slots

 

Slots are very popular in casinos. Slots are machines that play a number of various games. The player only needs to insert coins into the machine, and either pull a handle or press a button. The wheel will then start spinning. Traditionally, slot machines have 3 wheels, but in modern machines, they have 3-5 simulated wheels. Once the wheels stop, the player wins based on the wheel’s pattern of symbols.

 

Roulette

 

In this game, there is a wheel that features red and black slots with the numbers 1-36, and one or two green zero slots. Aside from the wheel, there is a table that also consists of numbers 0-36 and 0/00. It offers additional sectors for betting: even-odd, red-black, low 18-high 18, low/middle/high 12, and for the first/second/third columns. After all the players have placed their bets on the table, the dealer spins the wheel clockwise and throws in a small ball counter-clockwise. The wheel has numbered slots. Hence, whichever is the number of the ball lands in the slot, is the winning number.

 

Craps

 

Craps is the most popular diced games in casinos. The players bet on the result of the combined number two dice will land when rolled. There are many sectors to bet. The Pass line is the highlight of Craps, where 7 and 11 wins on this line. While 2, 3, and 12 lose.

 

All remaining numbers (4,5,6,8,9 or 10) rolled to make a specific point. If that number is rolled again before a 7 is rolled, the bet wins. On the contrary, 2 and 3 wins, where 7 and 11 lose on the Don’t Pass line. The Fieldline wins on 2,3,4,9,10,11, and 12, where 2 and 12 pay double. The Come line is playable after a point is settled, which also plays the same as the Pass line. While the Don’t Come line plays like the Don’t Pass line after the point is established.

 

Blackjack

 

Also known to be 21, Blackjack is also a card game between the dealer and the player. The dealer gives out two cards to each player and keeps two cards. One of the dealer’s card is facing up while the other one is down. Each player attempts to beat the dealer by getting a count as close to 21, without going over 21. Aces are equal to 1 or 11, face cards equate to 10, and number cards are pip value. The player may either “stand” (not ask for another card) or “hit” (ask for another card in an attempt to get closer to 21, or even hit 21). The player whose number is closest to 21 without going over 21 wins.

 

Poker

 

Poker is the most famous card game played in casinos. The game is a 5-card hand, where the hands are ranked from lowest card to highest card. The sequence of the card is a high card, pair, two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, and royal flush. The player who’s got the best hand wins the game.
