Roulette (is the best)

Roulette is a simple yet fascinating game of chance that is extremely popular around the world – both at land-based and online casinos. I doubt there is a person on this Earth that hasn’t heard of it and doesn’t have the slightest idea of how to play, yet if you’re planning on playing for real money, I would recommend that you explore the rules of the game as well as possible because in some cases that might actually give you better chances for a win.

The rules of roulette are quite straightforward. In this game, you have a wheel that features red and black slots that have the numbers from 1 to 36 on them, and one or two green zero slots – depending whether you’re playing European single zero roulette or American double zero roulette. Except for the wheel, you have a table which also features the numbers and several additional sectors on which you can place bets. After all the participants in the game have placed their bets on the table, the dealer spins the wheel and throws in a small ball. Whichever is the number of the slot the ball lands in is the winning number.

According to the type of roulette game you’re playing, there might be some differences in the wheel and table layout, but that’s nothing to worry about as it doesn’t impact in any way the outcome of the game. Something that is important to know, though, is the type of bets you can place when playing roulette. Let’s take a closer look at them.

What are Slots?

Slots are one of the most popular types of casino games worldwide. They are fast-paced and exciting, and the general concept of the game is simple: spin the reels, get matching paylines, and win.

There are many different kinds of slots, and after you read some reviews on online slot casino games, you can determine which type interests you most. One of the first distinctions to make is between three-reel slots (also known as classic slots) and five-reel slots.

Classic slots are old-fashioned, traditional slots, but many have updated bonus features. Five-reel slots allow for increased amounts of paylines and action.

Other types of slots include progressive, MegaSpin, multiplayer, and AWP slots. Progressive slots are incredibly sought-after because the jackpots increase every time someone plays. Since there are no limits, the maximum jackpot is often in the millions.

MegaSpin games allow you to play multiple machines at once, while multiplayer games give you a communal experience with other players where you can share bonuses. Finally, AWP slots, also known as fruit machines, are British exports that have some unique features like the nudge and hold functions.

Baccarat 101

If you’re looking to sit down at a Las Vegas casino table game with few complexities and a lot of James Bond-style fun, baccarat is your go-to game. There are three possible outcomes—a player win, a banker win and a tie—and the dealer pretty much does all the work.

As host Jeff Civillico explains in the how-to video below, players bet either on the player’s side, the “banker” (aka the dealer) side or for a tie. Cards two through nine are face value, while a 10, jack, queen and king cards have a value of zero. An ace is worth one.

The dealer then deals out the cards face up—two each for the player and banker—and whichever hand totals closest to nine wins. If you’ve bet on the player hand and it has the closest to nine, the winnings are simply double what you bet.

If you’ve bet on the banker hand and it wins, it pays 95 percent of your wager.When the cards dealt are greater than nine, you have to add the two together and drop the one (or two) to get the value.

For example, a hand of nine and seven cards dealt would add up to 16, and with the first digit dropped, the value in the game is six.

Here are some more rules to help you ace a baccarat game:

  • If either the player or banker is dealt a total of eight or nine, both the player and banker stand.
  • If the player’s total is five or less, then the player will receive another card. Otherwise, the player will stand.
  • If the player stands, then the banker hits on a total of 5 or less.
  • The final betting option, a tie, pays out 8-to-1. Conveniently, there are also sheets at the table for you to keep track of your score.
