There are various online games, but the most popular casino games are Slots, Roulette, Poker and Blackjack when it comes to card games.
Slots vary in the type of games as well as the amount that can be played. There are slot machines for very low prices and also others where one can bet a lot of money. Obviously, the higher the stakes are, the bigger the prize. One advantage of playing slots is that you can play solo. You do not need other players and can bet as low or as high as you like. These machines can be very addictive and it is not unusual to see old age pensioners sitting in front of these types of machines putting ‘pennies’ into the slot for a whole morning.
Roulette is played amongst players but yet again solo. When the croupier spins the wheel, there are usually quite a few players participating. However, how you bet, on which numbers, perhaps black or red, odd or even depends entirely on you. A player wins when his number or numbers ‘come up’. The number or colour which comes up is where the ball stops. Many people can win at this game at the same time. More than one person can place their bets on the same numbers. According to your wager, you will win what is due to you.
Poker is a card game where the player has to bluff to win. It is not necessary to show your hand unless the other players pay a price to see what you have in hand. You might not have any good cards and yet win the game if the other players have no intention of paying up to have a look at your cards. It is very important never to give the game away by the look on your face or by making any particular movement. The winner is usually the player who manages to convince the rest of the group that he is the one with the winning hand.
Blackjack is a card game where the players individually play against the dealer. The person who makes up twenty-one points or who manages to come closer than the dealer to twenty-one (without going over twenty-one points) wins the hand. Blackjack wins are double or nothing i.e. you either double your money or else lose completely.
