The casino industry has transformed significantly over the past few decades and places like Las Vegas are thriving! There is a long history of casino games being played and there are several variations in different countries for even the most basic of casino games. Online casino gambling has also made a massive impact on how things have transformed in the last decade making access to gambling easy. Here are some examples of the most popular casino games around the globe.
Probably one of the most popular card games that can be played in a casino is blackjack. This card game may seem quite simple but there is a lot you can learn about it.
The aim of this game is to ensure that you beat the dealer, either by standing on a combination of cards or by the dealer busting. Anything over 21 is too many and would signify a bust. The Ace card can either be a 1 or 11. As such if you had a combination of a 3 and an Ace you could choose for this to be a total 4 or 14. There are also options to split or double down.
Splitting can be done when you get two cards of the same – although it is strongly recommended never to split when you have two tens and always split when you have two eights or Aces. Doubling down is recommended when you have a combination of cards of 9, 10 or 11 (however this depends on what the dealer has). Nothing can beat blackjack which is a combination of an Ace and 10 (or Jack, Queen or King).
This popular game that is played all over the world but, depending on where you play, there may be some different rules. There is a wheel that has numbers from 0 to 36 on the wheel and the croupier will spin the wheel and see which number the ball falls into.
Generally, only in Europe is there one 0 but American roulette has two 0’s. You place chips on different numbers and if this is the number comes out then you will receive a payout of 35-1. As such, put a pound on a number and it comes out and you will receive £35. There are also several side bets you can place on this game which could include red and black, odd and even.
Slots and Bingo
Finally, head to any casino and you will see slots and bingo everywhere. These fun games have come a long way from the simple one-armed bandits of old. There are slot games which cover all sorts of genres and are packed with some super fun bonus features to keep you playing. Bingo games will often come in many different varieties too and some brands will offer Slingo, a popular slots and bingo hybrid.
If you want to try a slot, you are in good company. From online casinos to land-based ones, there are slot machines everywhere waiting for you to try them.
Remember though, all casino games including slots and bingo are forms of gambling and as such anyone wishing to participate must be over the age of 18 and must only spend what they can afford to lose.
