While brick and mortar casinos are still widely popular, nothing is quite as popular these days as the online casino world. Online casinos attract an incredibly high number of players.
Their advantage is the wide variety of games and the variations of games.
However, while there are so many varieties of games to play, table games still remain as one of the most popular types of games you can play at the casino.
So, with this in mind, we have to ask, what are the best casino table games you can play?
The Best Table Games To Play
Sure, slots are great and all, but table games have a magic to them that we just cannot resist. So, what are the five best table games you can play at your casino, either in the flesh, or online?
In blackjack, it is just you Vs the dealer, even when there are other people at the same table.
The premise of this game is simple. Get as close to 21 as you can without going over, and try to get a higher score than the dealer.
Each player will be dealt 2 cards, and you get a choice on what to do, you can stand, which ends your turn, hit, which is to be dealt another card, split, which you do if you have two cards of the same value, where you can split your one deck into two.
You can also double down, which means to double your bet, and you get one more card before you go against the dealer.
There are strategies you can use to play this game well and win, however, no strategy is a sure fire way to win, so remember to be humble and not get too risky.
Baccarat has some similarities to blackjack. Its rules are simple. You can bet on the player, or the dealer, you could bet a tie, or all three.
Cards are dealt to the dealer and the player, and if you picked the best hand, you won!
The best hand is the hand that is close to 9. However, if the hand goes over 9 then the value gets 10 taken off. So if you had 9 and 8 then the hand would be valued at 7.
It is considered to be a high-stakes game, and can be real good simple fun.
Craps is a fast-paced table game that comes with quite a lot of jargon, so it is good to get to know this before you start. Every player will take turns in rolling these dice, while the remainder of the table will place a bet.
You can get various bet types with craps, including ‘don’t bets’ which can be a bet made against any shooter.
It looks complicated, but it also usually has brilliant odds and can be a great game to learn, also, it’s a good way to show off to your friends when you know it.
Roulette is a fantastically easy game to learn how to play. It is very popular in the U.S. and in Europe and there are two different versions thanks to this. European roulette does have better odds, however.
It is a unique game, you place your bet and then a ball is thrown into a spinning wheel and the number and color the ball lands on is the winner.
With roulette, you can make inside bets or outside bets. Outside bets have the best odds but the lower payout whereas inside bets have a higher payout but worse odds.
#5. Poker (3-Card)
If you fancy learning poker, the 3-card version is the easiest to start with.
You play against the dealer, and you will place a simple ante bet and receive 3 cards. You then decide if you want to play your hand or fold it. The rankings in this version of poker are very similar to Texas Hold’em, it’s just a bit simpler.
Dealers also cannot play if they do not have a Queen, high, or higher. If this should happen then the play is a tie and your ante bet pays even.
