Casinos are one of the best ways to have fun while getting some fast cash. Conversely, it can be the alluring bandits that make you want to lose more money, all in the hope of winning big. Your experience in one depends on how much you know about the game and how good you are at controlling your chips. If casino experience has been in your bucket-list for a long time, you must play these five popular casino games:
Slots or slot machines are one of the easiest, yet longest casino games (link is applicable in the the jurisdiction of Curacao). It is easy to lose money in this game with the hope of hitting the jackpot. A player inserts the coin and presses a button or pulls the handle to see if the patterns on the spinning wheels match. If they match, players win a certain amount of money; otherwise, they lose money. Their inclusion in the online casinos like ShowLion has changed the original slot machine concept with extra bonuses for the players aside from the main payout.
Blackjack is a card game where the players do not compete against one another, but the house or the dealer. In this game, two players take turns to compare cards with the dealer and reach 21 by saying “hit” to get new cards. One “hit” ends a turn; conversely, they can also double their bet instead of getting new cards to end their turn.
Roulette is one of the riskiest casino games and is based on pure luck with no 100% foolproof strategy for winning. In this game, a player wagers on a number or a group of numbers. If the wagered number or numbers come up when the dealer spins the wheel clockwise and the ball counter-clockwise, the player wins the money. To bet on numbers, players use a table which has numbers 0-36 and 00. Moreover, one can wager based on the colour, column, and the number ranges.
Poker is an indeed international card game where players wager on their hands. Despite being centred on the card, the game is essentially a chip management challenge and the player who manages it very well by minimizing their loss wins. One of the critical components of this game is the ability to bluff and trick other players into losing more money than you. The winner is the one with the best hand (a hand consists of five cards) based on the hand ranking.
Ranks of Hands:
- Five of a kind
- Straight flush
- Four of a kind
- Full house
- Three of a kind
- Two pairs
- One pair
- No pair
Craps is one of the most popular casino games for the high-risk and high-gain nature of the game. Being a dice game, players wager on dice rolling outcomes of either one or multiple dices. As with every other casino game, players use chips to bet instead of money.
Rules in brief:
The rules of Craps are the same for both land-based casinos and online ones. If a player (shooter) gets 7 or 11 on the first roll, then he or she wins their bet. If the shooter rolls out 2, 3, or 12, they lose the money but retain the dice. However, if they get 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10, the number becomes their “point” and keep rolling until they get their point for a win or roll out a 7 to lose money and dice.
