Play Online Table Games

No other casino games can compete with the rich history of table games. Primitive versions of these games date back several centuries and have evolved to become the casino versions we play today. If we look at the online table games offered in our casino, we can get a sense of their historical significance. Baccarat was played by French royalty, while Craps was played on the streets in London. The oldest documented mention of Blackjack was in a text written by Miguel de Cervantes—the author of Don Quixote. As for Roulette, the wheel was born from Blaise Pascal’s attempted perpetual motion machine. Each of these games underwent multiple changes before making their way to North America.

 

And even when table games arrived to America via settlers, they continued to evolve to suit the tastes of American casino players. For example, the reason Twenty-One changed became known as Blackjack is because American casinos created a bonus pay for getting a natural with a Jack of spades or clubs. The bonus didn’t stick, but the name did, and now North Americans prefer the name Blackjack to Twenty-One.

 

Whether Blackjack is your top game, or dice are your tool of choice, we’re confident that we have the game you’re looking for in our online casino. In this guide, we’ll provide a brief explanation on how to play table games, how to choose the right table game, and how live dealers work.

 

 

How to Play Table Games

In this section, we provide basic explanations of how Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Craps work, but rules vary based on the version you’re playing. Always review the specific game rules before you play real money table games.

 

 

Online Blackjack

There are several different Blackjack games available in our casino, including Single Deck Blackjack, Double Deck Blackjack, (standard) Six Deck Blackjack, European Blackjack, Perfect Pairs, and Zappit Blackjack. In all these online Blackjack games, the point structure and goal of the game is the same. Tens, Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 10 points, Aces are worth 1 or 11 points, and everything else has face value. You and your opponent, the Dealer, start with two-card hands (you get to see one of the Dealer’s cards) and try to build the higher score without exceeding 21 points. The person with the highest score that’s under 22 points wins the round.

 

 

Online Roulette

For online Roulette games, we have both European and American versions to choose from. With European Roulette, a betting layout comprises numbers 0-36 for you to bet on; the American version has numbers 00-36. Regardless of which version you’re playing, you can bet on single numbers for big payouts, or groups of numbers for better odds, and watch the Roulette ball spin around the rotating wheel. Whichever number it lands on is the winner.

 

 

Online Baccarat

A true spectator game, the Punto Banco version of Baccarat, which are the online Baccarat games we carry, pits the Banker vs. the Player in a race to the better score (up to a maximum of 9 points). Two cards are dealt to start the round and a third card is sometimes added to either hand—according to house rules. Simply bet on either side to win, or for a big payout, bet on both sides to tie.

 

 

Online Craps

All online Craps games have a betting layout and a pair of dice. Each bet presents a unique way to wager on the outcome of the roll. The first roll, called the come-out roll, results in a win or loss if it’s a 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12. Any other number (4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10) establishes a “Point,” meaning you keep rolling the dice until you re-roll the Point or “Seven Out” by rolling a 7. You can bolster certain bets by taking odds, which have no house edge attached.

 

 

How to Choose the Right Table Game

Table games can be strategic, care-free or a little bit of both. Find out which games fit each category, so you can have the experience that’s right for you.

 

 

Strategic Table Games

Blackjack is as strategic as casino games come. According to the math, there’s an optimal way to play each hand, and you can make sure you’re playing that way by following a Blackjack strategy chart. Make sure to get one that reflects the proper number of decks in the shoe and the Dealer’s response to soft 17s.

 

 

Care-Free Table Games

Roulette is the go-to game for care-free thrill-seekers. Put some money on your lucky number and cross your fingers that the ball will land on it. Correctly guessing the single number pays 35X your bet. If you prefer a conservative approach, bet on reds or blacks, which have close to 50/50 probability of winning.

 

 

Relaxed Strategy Table Games

There’s no intense strategy with Craps and Baccarat, but a little research helps boost your chances of success. Probability, house edge, and payouts can all be weighed and compared in order to make shrewd betting choices at both the Craps and Baccarat tables.

 

 

Live Dealers

Live Dealers have been trending through the online casino industry in the last couple of years. This service takes online gaming and adds a human element to it by having real people run the games at a casino studio. Everything is filmed through a live feed and broadcasted online, so you’re playing with real people in real time. Casino players who don’t like the idea of technology running the games prefer to use Live Dealer versions when possible, which means they can still play from the comfort of home, while enjoying a brick-and-mortar experience.

 

Slots may be our main attraction, but our table game selection is the best in the business. And now that you know how each game works, you can explore the options based on your preferred gaming style: strategic, care-free, or both. Will you hop on the Blackjack bandwagon, or become a loyal Craps player? The choice is yours.
