Play Red Dog - This Game is Simplicity Itself!

If you are looking for a really simple online card game which you can gamble on, play Red Dog as it doesn't get much easier that this. It is played on a table similar to that of blackjack which has two betting markers, the "Bet" and the "Raise". Much like Acey Deucey a 52 card deck is used and card suit is not part of the game.

Red Dog is a popular game and experts of Red Dog say that if you can subtract and remember the number seven you will have this game aced.

The objective of the game is to place an opening wager, after which two cards are dealt. The bet is to guess on the chance that the next card dealt will fall between the two cards the player already holds. So if he holds a 10 and a 9 and an 8 is dealt, the player wins, if a Queen is dealt he loses, as simple as that!

Because it is such a simple game, this is where the "raise" bet comes into play. It is based on the spread which is the amount of card values lying between the first two cards dealt. Cards from 2 - 10 count as their value, Jacks are 11, Queens 12, Kings 13 and Aces are 14. If the cards dealt are a 7 and a 10 the spread would be 7 and 8. If there is no spread and the cards are say a 4 and 5 this is a tie, the player keeps their money and the game is over. The spread bet is what makes this game interesting, but you have to try your hand at it to get the idea. It is a game that is available at any good online casino, so have fun!

Play Lowroller Roulette At Your favorite Casino

Look at any casino and you find options to play all kinds of games across the board, from every price range to any price range, with the highest betting players being known as "Highrollers". Many of us enjoy playing gambling games but we are not high risk takers and roulette is kind of known as a game with a minimum bet, and the minimum bet table may be as much as $5 which is a lot of money to people who cant afford to play, but would like to.

Finally someone has taken notice of this and Lowroller Roulette is now available. Roulette is a random number game and this is what makes it so exciting. It also has a wide range of betting options and this is another of the exciting aspects of the game. To take a dollar and split it into 10c bets, means you get to wager across a wider range of options and you don't have to worry about losing your shirt. I have also seen betting ranges as low as 1c per wager, and this will make your money go really far.

You naturally won't win as much playing lowroller games but by the same token you won't lose as much and you still have the same odds of winning as the highrollers. Some people can afford more than others, but just because of this they shouldn't be precluded from playing.

All gambling activities have quite a high element of risk; roulette, named after the French word for wheel, has its own risks too, it is a completely random game. But there are ways of playing it that can keep the risks low and still get good returns for your wagering efforts.

Man Appeal - Mid Life Crisis Slots

If you have a sense of humor and let's face it most people who play slots machines do, then playing Mid Life Crises is bound to put a smile on your dial. Online gaming is after all supposed to be fun, and this game with its male pattern baldness and Viagra popping theme will have men rolling in the isles.

Similar to Shopping Spree for the ladies, this tongue-in-cheek look at the male species when his star begins to dim a little, is also linked to a generous progressive jackpot prize. It is a five reel, nine pay line game, and it is available at a number of high quality casinos.

The unique symbols of this game feature bald men, hair pieces (is that what they were?) Sexy women, gold chains, Viagra pills, sports cars and all the accouterments that are deemed to be relative to the male who is suffering from what is commonly called a mid life crisis, but in reality who actually knows what this is.

One of the biggest appeals of the game is that you can in fact actually wing a $100,000 sports car, as an alternative to taking the cash if you hit the jackpot. This is an awesome prize and to win it, you have to sin and line up all the sports car symbols on a pay line with a maximum bet. The coin range is from 0.25 to $100, and that is a pretty wide coin range.

If the progressive jackpot is won, it is reset at $25,000, so any tine is a good time to play this game. There are also two bonus games available and they are triggers by a good smattering of scatter and wild symbols. But the bonus games are also great fun, and any man in need of a good laugh after taking themselves too seriously is welcome to play it. In fact it should be recommended playing!!

Learn to Set a Pai Gow Poker Hand

It is without dispute that playing Pai Gow Poker has become one of the most popular variants of poker available online. It is a game with a difference as participants pay a flat fee to enter and it is an attention grabber too.

But the point of playing Pai Gow Poker is not only to have a fun an entertaining time, it is also to win. It is a competitive game and all competitive games are played because of the excitement of winning.

Each player separates his hands and it is at this point they see if they have won against the banker. In Pai Gow, seven cards are used and they are separated into a two and five card hand. The five card hand must be a poker hand and it must be higher in value than the 2 card hand. If only one of these hands beats the banker, the player is required to push. It is obvious that if both hands lose he is the loser and if the hands are a tie, the banker wins by having an edge. If the two hands are arranged incorrectly this may be a foul and depending on the house (casino) rules, these cards may be forfeited or rearranged.

It is for this reason that it is very important for the player to know how to set their hands. The two card hand is the "on top" the five card "in front or minor". They are so named because this is the way the hands are placed on the table when they are set.

In a casino banked game the dealer is also required to set his hand and this is done according to the "house way" it is a predetermined method, and is done this way so the banker is not using a strategy to win against the other players. All players should "set" their cards so that the highest two card hand possible shows.

Play Pai Gow Poker, Where East Meets West

Pai Gow is a traditional Asian game played, much like Mahjong or Dominoes; with tiles, we all know what Poker is (or we should) and Pai Gow Poker is a crossover of these two games. It's a kind of East meets West sty poker and was invented by Fred Wolf and Sam Torosian, famous casino innovators. It is played with a standard deco of 52 cards and one Joker is left in the pack.

Like most table and card games, Pai Gow Poker has become popularly played online and any casino worth its salt will offer this game. This game is a massive crowd pleaser, it has universal appeal and initially it was invented to get more people into the Commerce Casino in the 1980's where Fred Wolf was the manager.

The aim of the game is to make two poker hands from a hand of seven cards; a two card and a five card hand. The two card hand has to consist of a pair of high ranking cards and the five card hand has to have a higher value than the two card hand. The five card hand is obviously a standard poker hand and the Joker is the "bug".

Check with the online casino where you are playing to see how the Joker ranks. It can be completely wild in which case it substitutes for any other card to make a good hand. Or it can be substitutes as an Ace in the two hand pack and be used to make up a straight flush in the five card hand.

Generally there is a flat fee for playing Pai Gow Poker, with the house taking a rake (commission) from the winnings. Some casinos take up to 5% and although this seems a little expensive, bear in mind that a game of Pai Gow Poker take a long time to play in comparison to other games, so the casino is not able to collect as regularly.

Play the Classiest Video Blackjack in Town - Space Jack

You have probably played video poker, but did you know that you can place video blackjack too, and one of the classiest games in town is Space Jack. It is one of the most exciting ways to play Blackjack and it pays really well too.

Based on one of the most popular games played online Space Jack is a skills-based video game and it offers multiple opportunities to play, bet and win. You don't need to download the game as it plays through Flash Technology, just open an account at the site of your choice and play.

The object of this game is like any form of Blackjack - to get as close as possible to the score of 21 without busting. Aces can count as an eleven or one score and face cards count as ten points. Each of the number cards count as their own value and it is all really simple. You play with three hands at the same time and two cards are dealt. If you need to draw more cards you can, but when you do, all three hands will be dealt an extra card, so take cognizance of this. If you draw a card and your hands exceed 21, you bust and you lose your wager! If your hands beat the dealer, you win.

If any of your hands is a tie with the dealers, you may play for a push x 1 and no wagers are lost. The exception to this rule however is if the dealer has 21 and you have 21, because the house has an edge and the dealer wins. If you Blackjack on all three hands you will definitely hit the jackpot, so for a refreshingly different way to play Blackjack, Space Jack is your game.

For Simplicity Itself - Play Casino War

If you are looking for a casino card game and you find poker to complicated, baccarat too pretentious, and blackjack to boring, why not give Casino War a chance. It is based on that game of war you played with your friends as a child (when you could get your hands on a full deck of cards) and is still one of the simplest yet most exciting card games to play.

I don't know if you ever placed bets when you played War as a child; or in fact if you ever played it, but I did. My parents were card players and they taught us this game young. We each had a jar of pennies which we used for playing, and believe it or not we also used to play one armed bandits for money.

In the casino (and it is available at all good online casinos) this game is played with 6 decks of cards which are ranked the same as in poker, however aces are always high. The wager is place before any cards are dealt, and each player receives one card. This card is then compared with the dealers' card, if the players card is higher he wins, if the dealers is he loses. Simple as that!!

If there is a tie and both cards are of equal value, this is when you go to war or surrender, and these are the two choices open. If the player surrenders they lose half their bet, if they go to war, they have to increase their wager by an amount which is equal to the first ante. For show the dealer does the same thing - then he burns three cards and deals another card to the player and himself, and so the game goes. If the second card dealt is higher on the part of the dealer or player, they either win or lose. Very, very simple, and lots of fun too!

Play 3 Card Poker Gold For Two Game in One

I always feel like I get better value for money when I play a game that offers more than one game built in. Like slots games with free spins or bonus rounds! 3 Card Poker Gold is just such a game and if you play this popular poker version online, you can play by sticking to a traditional three card poker game or bet on the hand being a pair or better. Both these games can be played simultaneously or separately.

The game is played with a traditional 5 card deck and this is shuffled after every hand is played. The aim of the game is to finish up with the strongest poker hand possible. Bearing in mind that only three cards are dealt in the "Pairs Plus" game these are the potential payouts:

Hand Pay out
Straight Flush 40 to 1
Three of a kind 30 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
Flush 4 to1
Pair 1 to 1

It does not matter what the deal holds in terms of cards, the player is paid these odds, on their wager, for these specific card combinations. A bet need to be placed in the "Pair Plus" circle before the game starts and if the hand you are dealt doesn't cut it, you are still paid on this wager. Players are able to place this bet without making an "Ante" wager.

The "Ante" is the second game in 3 Card Poker Gold, and it has different pay tables. The dealer has to qualify by getting a Queen high or better hand and if he doesn't the player wins his "Play" (odds at 1 to 1) bet and double his "Ante". If the dealer does qualify then the player with the highest value wins. In order of importance these hands are:

Straight Flush
Three of a Kind
Straight
Flush
Pair
Ace High
King High
Queen High

Strategy For Playing Vegas 3 Card Rummy - The Bonus Bet

If the dealer in a game of Vegas 3 Card Rummy doesn't get the qualifying hand to play a game they are out and you win. You may know that the dealers hand has to be 20 or less in order to qualify, so for you to win, you also have to get less than 20. If you are dealt a hand that is higher than 20, you are going to fold, so it would be completely stupid to place a bet on a hand like this, good strategy dictates if you are holding a hand of less than 20, you should raise your bet.

Strategy for playing Vegas 3 Card Rummy dictates that there has to be some reasonable ways of increasing your chance of winning. This is achieved by playing on the Bonus Bet whenever possible. The reason why is easy to see on the pay tables, it has a better payout rate. The Ante bet must be placed in order to play, and this pays 4 to 1 for a hand carrying a total of zero, but the bonus bet increases the odds dramatically and if you have hand of zero, the bonus bet pays 25 to 1.

Now you are asking, how can you possibly get a hand of zero, this is simple, you have to get three 10 scores, and they cancel each other out, making a bit fat "0". 10-10-10 can be achieved by triples, a pair, and a two card and three card suit run.

If you wager $5 on the ante with a hand like this you win $20, but if you place the same on the bonus bet you win $125. If you were to get a suited run of A-2-3, you could win 100 to 1, on a $5 bonus bet, this is $500. So make sure if you have a good hand and you are playing a $10 wager, half goes on the ante and half goes on the bonus bet.

Vegas 3 Card Rummy - Online, Exciting and Feature Rich

If you prefer playing rummy for cash prizes then online Vegas 3 Card Rummy pitches the player against the dealer and is one of the latest games available. It is exciting, feature rich graphically superb and played from a single pack of 52 cards.

Vegas 3 Card Rummy will be released with the "Gold" series look and feel of realism, sophistication and quality. It has a wide range of betting options which makes it ideal for a beginner as they don't stand to lose their shirt with a $1or $2 bet. However, once you have mastered Vegas 3 Card Rummy the maximum bet is $250.00 and with payout odds of 98.5%, some pretty mean winning takes place.

The basics of this game determine that the player and dealer are each dealt three cards, the dealers being face down, the players face up. The aim of the game is to get fewer points than the dealer and he has to have 20 or less points in order to qualify. If he does not have this, the player automatically wins on the ante, and the raise is repaid to him. The pay tables and not the dealers hand is the factor which determines the pay out for the bonus bet. Once the hand has been dealt and won, the cards are re-shuffled for a new game.

Card scores are much the same as in any other card game, with number cards being their own value and face cards being; Jacks, queens and kings =10 points and aces 1 point. Ace, King, Queen is not a suited run and this is important to remember. Ante wagers placed can be returned if the player believes he does not have a winning hand, and he folds. However if he is certain he has a winning hand, he may raise the amount of the bet. This bet has to be to equal to the ante.

Blackjack Rule Variants

It is interesting to note that there are a number of Blackjack rule variants which might affect the way you play. These are not difficult to learn and are always addressed in the rules of any online blackjack game you play. Always check these out, if you don't you might play the wrong game and doing this will only make you lose.

You may be concerned about playing a different game of blackjack online, to the game you may have become used to at a land-based casino. The benefit playing online is that you can always check the rules and even practice in free-play.

For example you may find the "Dealer stands hard on 17" rule change to a "soft stand" on 17. In the classic game of blackjack, the dealer always stands hard on 17. When the dealer "stands soft on 17" they need to have 17 or higher and an ace in the hand. This rule is more advantageous to the player, than if the dealer "hits" on soft 17, as this hit rule increases the house edge slightly. The Soft hit rule generally only pertains to Blackjack switch, but it allows the dealer to draw another card if they have a soft 17, this increases the house edge by approximately 0.2%.

Doubling, if it is allowed, is one of the best options for a player, it is able to increase the profit they make quite substantially. Some casinos allow this, while others strictly forbid it. If you can find an online casino which allows doubling, and you are a blackjack player, you have found the right casino.

This game has done incredibly well for many online casinos, and the reason for this is because it is such an incredibly fun and easy game to play. Bearing this in mind, many variations of the game have cropped up, it lends itself easily to innovation, so lets take a look at a couple of these innovative variations.

Although it is a simple game to play, anyone playing blackjack has to concentrate, have a keen eye, and nerves of steel; oh, and luck really counts in this game!

Blackjack is based on winning with a hand of cards and a count of 21, in fact in Nevada's casinos the game is called "21". In the UK the name Blackjack has come into play to differentiate it from the game of Pontoon, in which 21 is also required for a win, this game is named after the French "Vingt et Un", which actually means "21".

One game that is very popular amongst online casino gamers is 'Blackjack Switch'. In this game the player has control over two hands, each with a betting pocket. Both hands must be wagered on equally initially. Both hands are played separately and players are able to hit, stand and double on each hand. Before the first move is made, the player is also allowed to exchange the top two cards of these hands and it is here that the name "Switch" evolves from.

In the 'Spanish 21' variant, doubling down is allowed on any amount of cards, and there are a large amount of rules which makes this a player friendly game. It is popular because the house edge is lower.

'Double Exposure Blackjack', another variation; both the dealers cards are dealt face up, and I will spend a little time with each of these variations in the following articles... stay tuned!

Play Blackjack, But Play for Fun and Practice

When you play Blackjack at any online casino, you should acknowledge that you are playing for fun. This means you must never lose more than you can afford to lose, and don't ever think of this game or any other casino game as a get rich quick scheme. These games are designed to give you a fair go but are still games of chance. Some players may get lucky and win big, and luck definitely counts, but you can maximize your chances of winning and minimize your risk of losing by understanding the game better.

No matter what casino you play in, if you play Blackjack by the book, your chances of winning are better and losing less. It is very simple to do this, but you also have to realize there are many variations of this game. With the advent of online casinos and gambling the variations have even evolved into more.

You need to play a few hands of your favorite variations before you get the hang of the game, and the beauty of playing at an online casino, is that you can play for free. Spend as much time as you can practicing these games before you start playing for real money. Only take on real play when you feel completely confident that you know the rules and betting strategies required.

Basic Blackjack strategy will teach you that no matter what game you play, if you are dealt a hand of 17 or more, you stick. If you have 16 or less and the dealer is showing a 7 or higher, take another card, and always assume that the dealer has a picture card un-revealed. Learn how to split your hand and double down, and when this should be done, it is important. Once you have mastered these very basic strategies, you should be able to play blackjack for a good while and have fun taking money from the house!

Steady, Aim and Shoot

Skeet Shooter is a slot machine with 5 reels and 9 bet lines. The many combinations on the bet lines give you lots of chances to win. If you land on three or more guns on an active bet line, you activate the bonus game which is one of my favourites. Be ready to move the pointer with your mouse that acts as your gun and shoot the targets that fly across your screen. This game is bound to get your adrenaline up, not knowing how high or low, fast or slow the target is going to fly by. You have two shot attempts for each target so be sure not to get trigger happy until your pointer is on top of the target. The amount of coins you earn will be different each time, depending on which and how many targets you hit.

It's a must try! See for yourself, you'll be playing the bonus game all day long just so you can prove to yourself that you can hit all targets! Click here.

Strategies and Tips for Winning at Baccarat

Baccarat has become an incredibly popular game to play online. Previously this game seemed to be the territory of the James Bond rich and famous type only. Thanks to the internet, anyone can now access Baccarat. Even mobile Baccarat is available!

Much like any other table game, this is a card game based on luck as there is no way of predicting what cards will come off the packs. It does however require "street smarts" just like Blackjack. But it is not like poker where you don't have to have a winning hand to actually win. To win you simply need to have better numbers than the dealer.

Although this is a random number game, many systems have been thought up to try and beat the "system" but don't take them to heart. If anyone tells you or tries to sell you a system that guarantees you will win at a Baccarat table are not telling the truth.

Playing games of chance are meant to be fun, and it is the entertainment factor you should focus on, not winning. If you can stay ahead of the dealer in Baccarat, you will have fun. So practice at free online tables, learn to go with the flow and maintain your realism. These are probably the best tips or strategies anyone can give to the beginner Baccarat player!

By the Book - Beginners Blackjack

Blackjack, which is also know as Vingt et Un and 21 or Pontoon as played in France and the UK, is a simple game enjoyed worldwide. The game has translated well into the online casino model, it is so simple to play that you don't only find this game at online casinos, you also find it as a side-game at online bingo and poker sites.

Effectively the player has to get 21 or closest to and beat the dealer (house). The game starts with two cards being dealt to each player and the dealer. The dealer only shows one of his cards and you have to aim to get a higher score than the dealer, but still remain at 21, lower, or bust! Remember the dealer has a 1 point edge, this means if he is dealt a picture card and a 10, he can claim 21 and a blackjack.

Once you have received your cards, if you believe it is necessary to receive another card to beat the dealer, you ask for him to deal you a "hit". You are not compelled to take another card and you can "stick". As soon as all the players are happy with their hand or have "bust" the dealer turns over his second card. If he has less than a 17 point score, he is compelled by the rules to take another card (although this rule can vary). At this point the game ends with either the dealer or the players winning. Essentially the winner is the player with the highest score of 21 or lower.

If you are dealt a ten or picture card with an Ace in your first two cards, you have blackjack and you win automatically.

Lay the Odds in Craps and Increase Your Bet

Once you have learned how to play online craps, and you know all the rules of the game, you will find that you can place an additional wager behind the Pass Line. This is known as laying the odds and it obviously increases your wager. Doing this will also increase your chance of winning as the payout is better than the normal 1:1 that you get by wagering on the pass line.

Wager on the six and eight and increase the odds to 6:5, lay the odds on five and nine and it will pay 3:2, and on four and ten this is 2:1. This bet is lost if a seven comes up before the point is made, but laying the odds has an additional advantage, because there is no house edge on these wagers. House edge is the percentage of the wager taken by the house (casino) for their gain.

You can only lay the odds if you already have a pass line bet and the house does have an edge on this bet, but any winnings you make laying the odds is all yours. This is the best possible bet of any other casino game, and you can only get it in craps, so bear this in mind when you play, it will give you a huge advantage.

The Place Bet is another popular craps wager, and this is done by wagering on what the shooter will roll. They have to roll a point first, so say for arguments sake this is 6. The shooter will now have to roll a seven, but if you put a place bet that he will roll an eight, your wager will pay back 7:6, however you can only place a $6 or increments of this bet, the same applies to odds of 7:5 and you can only bet in increments of $5, but it makes for some very interesting play.

How to Play Craps Hedge Bets

Playing online craps is very similar to playing the game in a normal casino, although things like dice control just don't count. It is best that you familiarize yourself with the rules and the different types of bets that can be made in this game, so you get the full benefit of playing online.

A hedge bet in craps entails splitting one wager into two smaller wagers. Nothing too complicated about that! The reason for this is to decrease your chances of losing, it means you are able to stay in the game for a longer time with an initially small sum of money. As you win, the prizes will also be smaller, but at least you still win. The hedge bet takes place in the come out roll.

When a new game begins with a new shooter in a betting round, the "Come out Roll" is the first roll of the dice. This happens when the previous shooter fails to make a seven out or "Point".

The hedge bet is not normally recommended for experienced players, but it is a good way to get a beginner used to this type of bet and the game, with less of a chance of losing. To do this you are first required to place a passline wager, this is dependent on the table limit; but for arguments sake let's just say a $10 wager!

You place the $10 wager and then place $2 on "any craps", this is the hedge. The shooter rolls the dice and if a 2 - 3 or 12 comes up, your $10 is lost but you still win in the "any craps". In fact you win $14, so you make your $10 and $2 back with an extra $2. So you can see how the hedge bet actually allows you to get your money back, win a little and play for longer.

New JackpotCity Bingo Launched

Players at JackpotCity Bingo logged on to an improved online bingo experience earlier this week. The upgrade includes new games, a better chance to win, progressive jackpots and a strengthened community, all because of the site's upgrade to Microgaming's industry-leading bingo software.

The move, motivated by player consultation and feedback, allows JackpotCity Bingo to offer a host of new benefits, including the latest in progressive online bingo jackpot games, where the number of balls that can be played increases every few days, along with the jackpot. JackpotCity Bingo is also moving three of its popular rooms to a smaller network where less players mean better odds.

"By moving three of our rooms to a smaller network, we enhance the odds of winning for our loyal players," said Gilbert Puente, Head of Bingo at JackpotCity Bingo. "Plus there are the obvious benefits of partnering with Microgaming, the recognized industry leader. New deposit and withdrawal options, progressive jackpots that get easier to win as the pot goes up, state of the art online casino side-games and new 75 ball and 90 ball varieties - this is a major milestone for our players and our site."

Other enhancements include the ability to buy tickets after the game starts, more frequent games, new chat functionality and much more. "This upgrade gives us a stronger foundation on which to build our greatest asset - our community," said Puente. "The people that play at JackpotCity Bingo make it what it is. We made this change because they asked for it, and we’re sure they’ll be happy with the result."

The move now brings JackpotCity Bingo under the license issued to Tower Rock Ltd by the Government of Gibraltar, a British Territory with stringent operator requirements. With regard to the license, Puente noted that "It's a demanding one to have, but having it means you really are a world-class online bingo site". It also brings JackpotCity Bingo in line with other Carmen Media Group sites, such as JackpotCity Online Casino, all of which run on Microgaming's software.

Online Craps Playing For Beginners

Playing craps is very exciting; in fact it is one of the most exciting games you can find in a casino. All online casinos offer this game and for beginners it can look a little daunting at first. It is a fast paced game and the table looks pretty complicated, but once you take the time to learn it is actually pretty simple.

This game is electric, and it is worth taking the time out to learn to play, so find a casino that will allow you to play free, until you feel confident enough to take on a real money game. If you can find a $5 table or less when you get started this is also recommended! Craps bets can be fairly expensive, particularly when multiple bets are made.

Craps is a social game, so you will make friends when you play, even online, all games have chat features, and regular players will be willing to help you learn. The beginner needs to learn three types of bets to get started and these are the Pass Line, the Place Bet and Laying the Odds. So make sure you understand these fully before you play for real money.

Dice control is something which happens in land based casinos, and this should not concern the online player. In online craps the dice are controlled by a random number generator and it is this that keeps the game fair. These RNG's are regularly tested and audited by independent sources to ensure that the game stays fair at all times. For playing online craps, all you really need to get to grips with is the rules and the type of bets to place for the best chance of winning. Once you have established this and you understand that you should never gamble more than you can afford to lose, you will soon be having great fun playing.

It is always good to know the rules of a new game before playing, but to really learn theses you need to put your play into practice. This is where the beauty of playing online comes to the fore, you can play for free until you are confident enough to play. There are no land based casinos where you can play Baccarat free!

Once you know the basics, you can move onto more advanced styles of play, until you have mastered variations of the game and any strategies which may be used. It is hard to use strategies however, because this is such a completely random game.

Baccarat often has its own section in the casino, but online you will generally find it under table games. It is also called Punto Banco, and the table is the same size as that of a Craps table. There are generally three dealers and 12 to 14 players per table, although this may vary online.

The online banker is a virtual dealer and in 3D versions of this game, the dealers are represented by avatars. You can also play live Baccarat where there are real dealers and live video is streamed to your computer. So there are many options for playing Baccarat online.

Placing Roulette Wagers and the House Advantage

Any casino table game has its own special wagering requirements and there is always a house edge, this is how a casino makes its money. Playing roulette allows for a huge variety of wagers, and this is what makes it a random number game, yet so interesting and exciting to play.

All the numbers on the roulette wheel are fair game for the gambler, including the zero. They can place wagers on single numbers, split numbers, black, red, odds even, in which section of numbers the ball will drop and variations of these wagers.

The house advantage on a zero, when it is a single zero game (European or French roulette), is 2.7%, on a double zero roulette table, this increases to 5.26%, so you can see why it might be better to play the European version of the game, the odds are better and the houses share is less.

Essentially the house edge is the expected value based on the odds being offered for winning. On a single number if you win 37 - 1, the house keeps your initial dollar and pays you the $37.

Play roulette and you will see how it works.

The Excitement of Playing European Roulette

Learning to play European roulette is simple. This game has been a favorite of casino games since the 17th century in France and easy to learn to play. The beauty of this random number game is that there are so many betting options, you can wager at your own risk level and have pretty good odds of winning. Although it is a random game and luck counts, learning to place the correct bets also helps.

A roulette table generally takes no more than 8 players, but every casino have plenty of tables, and when you play online, things are just a little different. With new multi-player roulette games the online versions are getting much more exciting though.

The European version of the roulette wheel has 36 number slots and one for the zero, making in total 37 numbers, in red and black. Experts say that the odds of winning are better because American roulette also has a double zero number pocket.

Every player is issued with a different color chips and these are purchased at the table. The chips usually have a value printed on them, and the table has a grid of the number you are able to wager on, as well as special wagering features. You can bet on the red or the black, any number, splits of number, where the number will land within certain parameter and even odds or evens.

As soon as all bets are placed, the croupier spins the wheel and launches the ball, players can continue to bet while the wheel spins, until the croupier says "no more bets". When the wheel stops, and the winning number is revealed, the croupier pays out all winners according to the odds they are entitled to. They clear the losing bets and, everyone goes onto the next round. This game is exciting to say the least and really doesn't take a lot to learn. You can even play free online, just to get the gist of it!
