Online Casino Games
The main types of games that you can find in any reputable online casino today include online slot machines, online blackjack, online video poker, online roulette, online craps and online keno. These games have been developed by various online casino software providers and they produce realistic outcomes thanks to their Random Number Generator’s (RNG).
Online Slots generally range from classic slot machines to video slot machines. Classic slots usually have 3 reels and 1 winning payline and video slots usually have 5 reels and multiple winning paylines. These games give the illusion of ‘spinning reels’ and the aim is to have three or more matching symbols to line up across any of the active paylines to receive a prize.
Simply select your stake per spin using the player controls (which are usually located beneath the reels) and then when you are ready, either hit spin or auto spin. When the reels finish spinning, you will either win a prize or not, it’s that simple. Video slots generally have Wild Symbols which can substitute all other symbols on the reels to help generate new winning combinations, as well as Scatter Symbols which can trigger Free Spins and Bonus Symbols which can trigger second screen bonus rounds.
The betting ranges on most online slot machines can range from as little as 0.01 coin per spin up to in some cases as much as 500.00 coins or more per spin. Some of these games also have progressive jackpots up for grabs. A Progressive Jackpot is an accumulating prize pool which have no fixed top amount.
Blackjack is quite possible the most famous card game in the world. There are several different version of this games such as Blackjack, Blackjack Surrender, 21 Duel Blackjack, Double Attack Blackjack, Pontoon, Blackjack Peek, Blackjack Switch, Lucky Blackjack, Blackjack Pro, European Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, Vega Strip Blackjack, Multihand Blackjack, Perfect Pairs and various other varieties, but they all follow the same basic principles.
Playing against the dealer only, the aim is to reach as close to 21 points as possible using the two cards that you are initially dealt. Each card is worth its face value in points. A King, Queen and Jack are worth 10 points, while the Ace can be worth 1 point or 11 points. Once you have placed a bet, you will be dealt two cards. Simply add the two cards together to find out the value of your hand. For example a 9 and a King is worth 19 points.
You then have the option of trying to improve your hand or sticking with your current hand. Once you have made a decision, it will then be the dealers turn and he must draw to all 16s and stand on all 17s. The person whose hand is closer to 21 pints will win, but if you both end up with the same value, the hand will end in a tie (aka a ‘push’).
There are many different Video Poker varieties available online today and they are all based on 5 card draw poker. The aim is to try and achieve the highest winning poker hand possible and the better your hand is, the bigger your payout will be. The lowest had on most video pokers is a pair of tens or better and a high card is NOT a winning hand in most video pokers.
When you set your stake, simply hit ‘draw’ or ‘start’ to play a game. You will initially be dealt 5 face-up cards and all you need to do is hope for a decent hand. You don’t have to try and beat any other players and you don’t have to try and beat the dealer. By looking at the first five cards, you can then choose to discard 1 to 5 of those cards in an attempt to try and improve your hand.
You can only discard your cards once, so make sure that you choose wisely. As soon as the new cards have been dealt, one round will be complete and you will then be paid accordingly. You can generally find some great single hand video poker games and also multihand games where you can have up to 100 hands dealt per game.
Roulette is one of the most popular games at any online casino today. You can find multiple varieties with the most popular ones being European Roulette, French Roulette and American Roulette. Other popular varieties include Newar Roulette, 3D Roulette, Marvel Roulette, Multi-Wheel Roulette, Video Roulette, Roulette Pro, Mini Roulette, Multiplayer Roulette, Premier Roulette and various other varieties.
It doesn’t take too long to learn how to play this game and the idea is to guess where the ball will land on the roulette wheel. You can place your chips on the betting table and then as soon as you are ready, hit spin so that the ball can be released. As soon as the ball has landed in one of the slots, one round will be complete and you will either be paid a prize or not.
For beginners, placing ‘straight up’ bets seems to be the norm, but this particular bet has quite steep odds of 35:1. It’s probably better to start with simpler bets with much better odds. For example, you could place your chips on the outcome being Red or Black (with odds of 1:1) or on Odd or Even (same 1:1 odds). You can also place bets on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd 12 numbers, 1 to 18, 19 to 36, Corner Bets, Column Bets and various other bets are also available.
For many players, Craps is often the most difficult game to learn how to play. Therefore we recommend playing on this game to begin with in the practice/free play mode. The betting table may seem a little confusing to begin with, so make sure that you browse through the rules and take your time to learn the many different bet types and their corresponding odds.
This is a popular dice game and it is also recognised as one of the most exciting table games available at any land-based or online casino. You can place your money on the outcome of just one roll, or you can place your money on a series of rolls. The first roll in a new game of craps is known as the Come Out roll and the point will be established if the two dice total 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10.
If a 3, 7, 11 or 12 is rolled on the Come Out roll, it will immediately end the round. When the point has been established, the ‘On’ puck will be placed on the puck. After the point has been rolled, the dice will then continue to be rolled until either a ‘7’ has been rolled or until the point has been rolled again.
Keno is a popular Numbers Game which is also recognised at an Asian Game at many online casinos. A Keno grid usually consists of 80 individual numbers and the main aim is to choose some numbers and hope that those numbers will be drawn. The more numbers you match, the larger your payout will be.
You can pick as few as 2 numbers up to usually no more than 10 numbers. You can either select ‘Lucky Dip’ (same as ‘Random Pick’) or you can choose the numbers yourself. As soon as you have placed a wager, select your numbers and then you can play one round or you can play multiple rounds. The numbers will then randomly be drawn from the keno machine and you can watch as they are drawn or you can speed up game play by deactivating the animations.
There are several different types of Keno available online today, but they all follow the same basic lottery-style principles. This game is really easy to play and it can quickly become addictive. You can select numbers simply by clicking on them and if you are not happy with your selection, you can normally just click on that number again to remove it.
