Whereas in the past you would have gone to the local casino or perhaps to the casino in Baden-Baden on special occasions, nowadays all it takes is a click to open your favorite game and then possibly even compete against your friends.But which games are actually particularly popular and why is that the case? Within this article, we will take a look at the six most popular games in online casinos, explain what they are and also look at why they are so successful.
Blackjack – 21 It Should Be
Next to poker, blackjack is probably the classic among card games in casinos. Therefore, it is little wonder that Blackjack is also so popular online. The goal of this game is to beat the dealer.
The Rules of Blackjack
Basically, you initially bet your money and receive two cards face up from the dealer, which every player at the table sees. The dealer also has two cards, but he has one card face up and one card face down. The goal now is to reach 21 points. This includes aces with 1 or 11 and face cards with 10 points. As a player, you either decide to draw another card or pass and reveal it. Because of this simple gameplay and the ease of transferring it to a virtual representation, Blackjack has taken online casinos and the hearts of players by storm.
Baccarat – In Search Of 9
Baccarat is another card game that has found its way into the world of online casinos. Here, the goal is for players to reach a hand with a value of 9 (or as close to it as possible). Two cards with single-digit values are dealt. If your total is greater than 10, they add the numbers together and subtract 1. The next best value to 9 wins. The trick to Baccarat, however, is not trying to reach 9, but rather who you bet on. Namely, you can bet on the player (“Punta”), the bank (“Banco”) or a draw. The draw promises the biggest profit because it is the hardest to achieve. If you bet on the player or the bank, there is a higher chance that you will get your bet back. All in all, it is a simple game, which is why it is perfect for online casinos.
Craps – The Dice Speaks
Craps is one of the casino games that usually cause a lot of excitement. Unlike the games before, it does not involve cards, but two dice. The dealer rolls the dice. If a 7 or an 11 falls, the player wins. If there is a 2, 3 or 12, the dealer wins. If there is another result, it gets interesting: you get the chance to bet on this result. The dealer rolls the dice again and if the previous result appears before a 7, the one who bet on the result wins. Besides, you can also bet against the so-called pass line, which means that you win if the 7 is rolled first. In any case, this makes craps not only unpredictable, but also easy to represent virtually, which means that it has found its way into online casinos.
Poker – If You Want to Feel Like Bond
Poker is a very popular game not least because of James Bond, which always attracts numerous people to online casinos. In fact, due to its popularity, poker was one of the first virtual games to be offered in online casinos. Moreover, with Texas Hold’em, Stud and Draw, Omaha Hi, Courchevel and Badugi variants, there are numerous ways in which it can be played, which is why it is little wonder that it captivates numerous people both online and offline. After all, there are even digital and analog competitions of the card game.
