Casino Gaming Guides
Explore all the popular casino games in our extensive games guide. From roulette and blackjack to sic bo and video poker, browse through our resources to learn how to play all the games on the casino floor – and discover tips and handy gaming strategies for every game.
Roulette is the most popular casino game in the UK. The game is played by a small ball being spun around a wheel, which is spinning in the opposite direction.
The game is fast, thrilling and can be noisy in live casinos, with the ball scuttling around the wheel, the sound of the chips, call bets and the commentary from the dealer.
Mobile roulette and online is just as exciting as the land-based game. With online roulette and mobile roulette you can take your time with your bets and have the luxury of placing them where you like, without having to reach over other players. Plus the dealer never makes a mistake with your payouts!
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games available at land-based, online and mobile casinos. The aim of the game is to find a card total closer to 21 than the dealer.
Players try to find a hand as close as possible to 21 without going over – going ‘bust’. Another way to win is to make the dealer bust his hand so that he goes over.
Unlike with most casino games, the way you play blackjack greatly affects the outcome of the game and your chances of winning.
In fact, playing properly to ‘basic strategy’ can reduce the house edge to less than 1% or even 0.5%. Mobile blackjack is one of the best games to play on the go for combining skill with luck on the gaming floor.
Three Card Poker
Three Card Poker is one of the most popular card games in UK casinos and the mobile three cards poker version is just as hot.
The hands in ‘three card’ are the same as regular five card poker, only in this game, due to the odds being slightly different, a straight beats a flush.
You can play the ante bet, the pair plus bet or both for double the fun.
With effectively two games in one, three card poker is a fast, exciting version of poker waiting to be enjoyed at all casinos.
Caribbean Stud Poker
Caribbean Stud Poker (usually called Casino Stud Poker in the UK) is a five card poker game played against the dealer.
There is usually a progressive option, which means players can make a small side bet in order to be entered into the progressive jackpot.
This game of luck and skill originated in the Caribbean and has taken the industry by storm, growing enormously in popularity over the past twenty years.
Slot games offer an exciting world of adventure just waiting to be enjoyed. There are hundred of different slot games available at online casinos.
Each type of slot has a different theme – some are based on famous films, others are cute and quirky and yet more have a classic fruit machine style.
Whatever you fancy you will find what you are looking for in the world of slots!
Mobile slot games are big business at mobile casinos, with all casinos offering a range of slot titles, from ‘old school’ classics to modern releases from the best software providers.
Baccarat is the game most people associate with high rollers’ glamour – perhaps something to do with the fact this was always James Bond’s game of choice!
Baccarat is said to have been invented in Italy, originally using Tarot cards. When it moved to England it was named after the French version, Chemin de Fer, which was then changed to European Baccarat.
The game also spread across to Americas andgrew particularly popular in Cuba. Baccarat hit Las Vegas in the 1950s to be called American Baccarat.
This is one of the oldest casino games and has a certain element of class about it. This is an exciting casino game based on luck.
Believed to be based on the English game of Hazard, Craps or Dice is the noisiest game in the casino – and it can also be one of the most fun!
The aim of the game is to predict the outcome of the dice roll.
Craps is still a rarity at mobile casinos but we are sure it will start to show its face on the mobile games market in the near future.
This is one of the most exciting casino games out there, with loads of betting options and some wild payouts.
Sic Bo is a Chinese game played with dice and can often be found in the Asian games section of the casino.
This game is about pure luck as players predict the outcome of three dice rolls. Players can predict the outcome of the rolls of the three dice in different ways, combining the three dice or predicting individual rolls.
This game is a specialist title with a strong following of loyal players, and another set of players who have never heard of the strange Asian game or are intimidated by the large table with flashing electronic buttons. Don’t miss out on this gem!
The oldest casino game of all, Keno is a game of pure luck very much like the lottery, in which players predict the winning numbers that will be chosen at random by the house.
Players can choose between one and 15 numbers that think will win out of the 80 numbers available.
The amount bet will depend on the number of Keno numbers chosen – and the amount won depends on the amount of winning numbers correctly predicted. Keno is a mobile casino favourite – what’s your lucky number?
Video poker is a popular game in the casino as it combines the instant fun of slots with the skill and character of poker.
This game is perfect for those looking to add a good dose of skill into their casino play.
Video poker is based on five card draw poker and has a number of variants, the most common of which are Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker and Jokers Wild.
Casino Games Guide
Casino table games can feel intimidating to some players if they haven’t played a particular game before. The rules and betting strategies can appear complicated. Our gaming guides will help to decipher all the casino table games so you can see how to play – and hopefully how to win!
Some casino games are not classed as table games. In our gaming guide list we have included slots and video poker. Slots are not table games but they contain many complicated elements that can seem complex to new players. So we hope our guide clears up any grey areas.
Video poker is a cross between regular poker and slots, so this is again not a regular table game. However video poker has its own strategy, so we hope our gaming guide will help you to understand the finer points and find your rhythm with this exciting game.
