The Best Casino Games
Wed 13 September 2017
Casinos are popular destinations to enjoy entertainment, good food, drinks and gambling. It is important especially with the gambling aspect of casinos to include popular games which will keep patrons coming back, and spending lots of time gambling and bringing money into the casino. The following are some of the most popular casino games.
Roulette is played by using a roulette wheel, which is marked with both the colors of red and black which alternate across 38 numbered slots in which a ball can land in when the wheel is spun. Players have a betting round in which they can choose if the ball will land on an individual number when the wheel is spun, an even or odd number, or if the ball may land on red or black colored numbers. Multiple bets can be placed and cannot be altered once the wheel is spun. The game is quite random but can work in terms of odds much like a coin toss. That is to say if a game has ended with the ball landing on red, 5 times in a row, it is less likely that red will be a safe bet as odds would suggest black would come next. Roulette players use odds and betting strategy in order to make money playing roulette.
Blackjack is one of the simplest and most popular forms of card casino games in the world. Blackjack in the simplest form has players competing against the house dealer in order to attain a hand of cards equaling as close or equal to 21 but not going over 21 as this is considered a bust. Players bet and are dealt two cards face up. Players may then add cards to their hand by saying “hit” or stand and compete with the cards they have. There are advanced options such as doubling down where the player will double their bet and agree to stand after receiving one more card. And splitting where if two cards are the same value a player can split the hand into two hands and potentially doubling their return. Surrender is also an option if the dealer has checked for a perfect hand. Blackjack is a fast paced game and can potentially have a very high payout in a short period if a player uses the correct strategy.
Slot machines are traditional gambling machines where players bet on the outcome of matching symbols on a mechanical reel system. Slot machines are one of the most popular casino games because of their low buy in and ease of use. Traditional one armed bandit slot machines were operated via a lever on the side of a machine. Bets were inserted and the three wheels would spin eventually locking into place and displaying three symbols in a line. If the symbols matched the player would receive a payout on their bet. Today many machines have computerized bonus structures which let players earn money by playing bonus games and betting extra lines rather than the traditional 1 line system. Players can match many sequences of numbers and use credit instead of having to feed coins into the machine constantly. Slot machines are some of the most profitable casino games for the house and also have larger jackpots for a much lower buy in than some other casino games. Players can truly get lucky and win thousands just from a single bet.
With so many popular forms of casino games it would be possible to include many more on this list. These three popular options have led to vast amounts of winnings from many gamblers and also a great amount of revenue for casinos around the world.
