Casino Games

With the gambling industry always growing at a fast pace, new casino games are also invented and introduced relatively often. Most of them do not get a lot of exposure, but rather are played by a couple of passionate players always looking to try some new form of gambling. On the other hand, there are games like Slots, BlackJack, Roulette and Baccarat that are widely popular and just about anyone who has ever heard something about gambling is well aware that these games exist. Caribbean Poker has also started to take off and is offered at most Brick & Mortar Casinos.

Lets take a look at the most popular casino games with a brief introduction and tips on how to play them. You can also read our in-depth guides for each, if you are new and not quite sure about the rules.

Slots are the most popular form of gambling in the world. Young and old people love to play these computerized gambling machines because they require no knowledge and more importantly, are very entertaining. You can also often have a shot at winning large amounts of money by betting pennies.

Slots differ between their types and themes. There are video slot machines as well as classical ones, that contain less advanced features. The all new type that has been introduced only recently is 3D Slots. These stand out with the exceptional graphics and realistic feel that can be gotten by playing them in front of your computer.

Even though making money playing slots consistently is not possible, the basic advice is to play ones that offer a shot at large progressive jackpots. You never know when the machine will award its progressive. Life changing money can be won and already has been won by by spinning for nickels – it could be you!

 

Roulette is the most popular casino table game and is very easy to learn as well as play. It contains of a wheel and table layout where the bets are placed. You can choose between betting a single number or several ones as well as choosing whether the number will be colour in red or black. These are just a couple of possible bets, but you get the idea.

This game also contains of various types that are probably into hundreds, but there are only 3 real types that differ by significant features and a bit in gameplay too. These are American, French and European Roulette variations.

A basic tip to play this game – look for casinos that offer French Roulette as this is the type that features lowest house edge of all, a tiny 2.5% when betting on even money bets (red/black or even/odd).

 

BlackJack, also called 21, is without a doubt the most popular casino card game. It also is my personal favourite and I can honestly tell that you will have a fantastic time playing this game. It’s exciting and highly profitable, when you are lucky enough. Of course, the casino still holds an advantage long term, but the swings in this game are real crazy. Also, the house advantage is a tiny 0.40% given that you play single deck BlackJack and follow the basic strategy.

Following the basic strategy is also the best tip I can give to you, as this will reduce the house edge to a minimum. How to do this? You can learn about it in our BlackJack Basic Strategy article. You will also find a printable strategy sheet there, which can be used while playing this game online or even offline!

 

 

Baccarat is actually a newbie in the family of online casino games, when compared to its relative competitors like BlackJack. Online casino sites added it to their offerings only couple of years ago, but it has proven to be one of the most played games today.

The key to its popularity is the action and excitement it brings, quite similarly as BlackJack. However, there is no room for skill in Baccarat and you will only have to decide how big or small you want to bet and where. Rest will be done by a casino.

Simple tip for playing this game – always bet on the banker and never bet on a tie, as that’s the bet with worst house edge thus your mathemathical expectation is the worst possible.

 

Caribbean Poker was introduced by David Sklansky (yes, the poker legend) after casinos saw how popular the so called club poker was getting. It’s a version of this very same poker game, but played against casino. You get 5 cards and have to decide whether your combination will beat the dealers. If you think so, you call and dealer opens his cards. The game was lacking popularity until a progressive jackpot was awarded. Nowadays just about any online casino site offers this game and pools progressive jackpots to make them larger. NetEnt powered casinos are known to offer some really huge jackpots for caribbean.

Simple Caribbean Poker Tip – call the bet when you hold at least AK or a pair. Otherwise fold and move on to the next hand.
