Casino Games

Online casinos have been around for nearly two decades, and they are evolving in step with the rest of the technology world to continually improve the virtual casino experience. What used to be a small, simple undertaking has now turned into a thriving online casino world, with stunning graphics and user-friendly gameplay.

Available Games

If you look at the list of all games in online casinos, you can easily get the impression that slot machines are among the most popular games and receive the most attention from software developers. However, they are by no means the only available option, quite the opposite. Online card and table games have received more and more attention from software vendors, which has led to major upgrades of the old classics.

Online casinos are excellent for those players who are interested in traditional casino games such as Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette on the one hand, and who don't mind more modern versions with improved features on the other. The game rules are often displayed in the games themselves, and can also be accessed via a FAQ or help page on the casino homepage.


As already mentioned, there are casino games online in numerous variations, including versions that are not available in the local casinos. Here are a few examples of the more popular game variations:

Roulette | Roulette has three variations, each named after the region in which it was developed: American Roulette, European Roulette and French Roulette. In American Roulette, there is an additional number, called double zero, on which the ball can land, which increases the advantage for the house. European Roulette and French Roulette, on the other hand, have only one zero, but differ in the way the House treats this one number. In French Roulette, all bets are simply taken for the next spin, while in European Roulette, players can withdraw half the value of their bets.

Blackjack | Blackjack is the casino game with the most variations. The different versions differ in various factors such as the number of decks involved, when the dealer hits/holds his hand and many more. It is estimated that there are about 50 different variants of Blackjack.

Poker | Poker games are usually divided into three categories, each of which can be divided into additional subcategories and each with minor changes. Texas Hold'em Poker is probably the world's most popular poker game and has earned its good name due to its famous position within the gaming world. It is also the feature game in the World Series of Poker. Texas Hold'em falls into the "community card" category along with other versions of poker. Other games that do not fall into this category include Draw Poker, where only the player knows his cards, and Stud Poker, where some cards are turned over by each player and some are not.

Wager Limitations

In many casinos there is a bet limit, which specifies the maximum amount for each game. These betting limits contribute to predicting a certain skill level at certain tables. Beginners tend to play with lower stakes, while experienced players prefer tables with higher stakes. The betting limits also serve as protection for both players and casinos. Casinos are protected from excessive losses and players from excessive bets.

House odds

Odds vary depending on which casino game you are playing in and in which casino you are playing. The odds are set by experts who deal with complex formulas to ensure fair play for players. These odds represent the house advantage that determines the likelihood that the casino, not the player, will win.

Different casinos have different house odds, and almost all of them publicly indicate this. A little research can often reveal the best casinos that are worth playing at. Often, some casinos have unique house advantages which are always pointed out so that no confusion arises.
