What different types of casino games are there?

There are various types of casino games out there which not only excites you but also helps you earn money with it if you have basic skills and lots of luck. Here are some famous casino games in brief.

Blackjack

Also known as twenty- one, Blackjack is played between several players and the dealer. Based on probability there are usually two to seven players in this comparing card game. The objective is to beat the dealer as players do not play against each other, but against the dealer. Players can beat the dealer either by getting 21 points in the first two cards, reaching a final score higher than the dealer without exceeding 21, or letting the draw additional cards until the hand exceeds 21. Scores depend on the value of the cards, with the face cards worth 10 and the ace worth 11 or 1.

Slots

Slot machines host several games with the basic rule of inserting money, pulling the handle/ pressing the button and causing the wheels to spin. The player gets the money according to the pattern of the symbols once the wheels stop. Many jackpot slot games like the Mega Moolah are very famous.

Poker

Poker is a card game where cards are hidden, and the players have to determine the winner of each hand. The players’ wager according to the rank they think their hand is worth in comparison to the other players. Money is put in the pot by the players who believe the wager has positive expected value or is just trying to trick the other players. Therefore, this game runs not only on probability but also psychology. The rankings of the card in increasing order are the high card, pair, two pairs, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, and royal flush. The player with the best hand is the winner.

Roulette

The game consists of a circular wheel with numbers ranging till 37 (38 in American roulette). Players choose which number or group of numbers (red/ black, odd/even, and high/low) he/ she wants to wager on. The croupier signals no more wagers and spins the wheel along with the ball. The ball rests on one of the numbers and all wagers corresponding with that number win.

Baccarat

In this comparing card game, players are given two cards; one is the player while the other is the dealer. Players have to wager either on the player, dealer or the tie. Once all the players finish wagering, cards are dealt. Hands are added, and the winner is the higher of the two, and the one who placed the corresponding wager. If the result of the added hands is above ten, then it is subtracted by 10. For example, 9+6=15 and therefore, 15-10=5.

Craps

This game involves two dice where the player wagers around the table. Each player gets a turn to throw the dice where a throw of 7 or 11 is a win whereas a throw of 2, 3 or 12 is a losing throw.

These are some of the casino games which are undoubtedly thrilling. Make sure that you know all the rules of the game and enough balance before beginning to play.
