Casino Table Games

The table games in casinos refer to games that are played on the gaming tables and these casino games are usually managed by a live dealer. There are many kinds of table games such as card games, tile or dice games and random number games. In some states, casinos are not allowed to provide table games to customers. There are also electronic versions of table games. It should come as no surprise that many online casinos also offer online table games. At online casinos, players will play in a virtual table. Sometimes the dealer can be a computer but these days many online casinos also have live dealers for table games. Most table games such as poker and blackjack are among the most popular casino games.

Popular Table Card Games


This game is believed to come from card games from Persia and Germany although it gained its popularity in the United States. The game can be played by a dealer and any number of players. Players are required to make a forced bet (ante) before the deal. The person who deals usually rotates among the players. After receiving their cards, players will receive cards one and the players continue making bets for each round. The bets made will all be added to the pot. As cards are being dealt, players should arrange the cards into a winning hand. The winning hands are straight flush, royal flush, four of a kind, flush, straight, full house, three of a kind, pair and high card. The winner is determined when a player calls and all the other players fold. There are several variations of this table game such as Asia Poker, Stud Poker, Chinese Poker, Pai Gow Poker and many more. This is one of the table games that are favored by many casino players.


This game is considered as the most popular casino game. This is a comparing card game wherein the main goal is to have a hand total closest to 21. After the dealer gives each player their first two cards, players can hit, stand, double down, split or surrender. The player with a total hand closest to 21 wins the games. There are several variations of this table game also such as Blackjack Switch and double exposure blackjack.

Unlike blackjack and poker, baccarat is purely a game of chance which does not require players to have certain skills. It is also a comparing game played between a dealer and several players. The aim of the game is to have the highest sum of all cards. The highest score is 9. Each card is equivalent to certain points for instance an ace is equal to 1 point while cards 2-9 are worth their face value. Face cards and 10s are worth zero. The score is determined by adding the cards wherein the rightmost digit of the sum is the score. For instance, a hand with a sum of 15 will be scored as 5. This is also one of the table games that have different variations.

Dice/Tile Games

Popular table games, which involve the use of dice or tiles, include Craps, Sic Bo, Pai Gow and Chuck-a-Luck. Each game has different variations both in brick and mortar casinos and online casinos.

Play Roulette for Fun

Many online gamblers play roulette for fun because they can hone their skills for free. Roulette is one of the most popular casino games because it is very easy to understand. Since it was introduced in land-based casinos, roulette quickly gained popularity. The same is true when online roulette was introduced. The beauty of online roulette is that players can play the game for free unlike in land based casinos where players should play for real money.

Roulette Table

In playing roulette, players just need to place a bet in any of the numbered boxes on the roulette table. The dealer will spin the roulette wheel then roll a ball in the opposite direction of the wheel. The wheel has pockets which are numbered 1-36. These pockets are either black or red. There is also a green pocket numbered 0. In American roulette, there is an additional green pocket numbered 00. The number and the colors on the wheel pockets correspond with the numbered and colored boxes on the roulette table. The pocket where the ball lands will determine the winning bet.

Online Roulette

The rules of online roulette are basically the same as that of regular or land based roulette. The only difference is the environment. Instead of going to casinos, you can play roulette at home. The benefit of online casinos is that they allow players to play roulette for fun. This means that you can play for as long as you want anytime. To start playing, you need to open an account; this is free. When you want to start playing for real money, you can just open a real money account. After opening your account, download the game you like and you can start playing instantly. Online casinos also have an instant play feature that allows players to play the game immediately instead of downloading. Just look for the ‘instant play’ button then click. Regular roulette has different variations and this is also true for online roulette. Players can enjoy all the classic kinds of roulette such as the American and European roulette. There are also unique online variations of the game.

After choosing or downloading the game, you can now start playing. Most online roulettes are powered by RNGs but some online casinos these days also have live dealers. Wait for the dealer to say ‘place your bets’ then you can put your bet anywhere on the table, but you have to do it fast. Unlike regular roulette, the wheel cannot be spun until bets are placed. This gives the players time to decide on the amount of their bet and where to place it. For players who are new to the game, this can be a very big advantage.

Benefits of Playing Free Online Roulette

There are many benefits of playing online roulette for free. Players who play roulette for fun get the chance to improve their roulette skills and to get their rhythm. You can also get to apply the different roulette strategies and see what works and what does not work. Once your skills improve, you are now ready to play for real money.

Christina Aguilera Goofs National Anthem

Aguilera something fierce frustrated the national anthem before the Super Bowl. Aguilera began well, but had a problem with the walls - specifically, the "o'er the ramparts we" line, which was full.

Christina Aguilera attempted to compensate by combining two lines - "What so proudly we watched," instead of "What so proudly we hailed", but let's just say that it was too late to reverse the error. Twitter blew up, and all Aguilera could do was to oversing every word from there on out, which she most certainly did. (source: yahoo)

Bonus goof-up points for the flyover at the end of the song -- too bad nobody saw it, what with the roof closed at Cowboys Stadium and all.

Free Craps Online

Craps is a dice game that is very popular, which is why many online casinos offer free craps online. Craps is a fashionable game both in land based and online casinos. In actual casinos, players cannot play for free. For online casinos however, many websites offer free games such as craps. Before attempting to play craps online, you should first understand the basic rules of the game.

In craps, players wager on the outcome of the roll of a pair of dice. Sometimes, they can also bet on a series of rolls. Only two things are needed when playing craps, the craps table and the pair of dice. The craps table displays different betting possibilities. Most craps tables are double sided. It is possible to place multiple bets. Usually four people manage the craps table.

The boxman is the one who guards the chips, the stickman who announces the outcome of each roll and who takes bets in the middle of the table and two base dealers who collect and pay the bets. The shooter or the person who rolls the dice can be any of the players. Each roll has different names such as ace deuce, easy six, natural, snake eyes and many more. Sometimes players and casinos have their own names or nicknames for each roll.

There are several bet options in craps that are also applicable when playing free craps online. The most basic bet is known as the ‘pass line.’ This kind of bet is placed on the pass line on a come out roll. It is also possible to place multiple bets but you can only do this after placing the pass line. Another kind of bet is the ‘don’t pass’ bet which is the opposite of the pass line bet. Persons who make this bet are usually called ‘wrong’ bettor because their luck is the opposite of the other players. ‘Wrong’ bettors are winning when others are losing but they also lose while everyone else on the table wins. There are more kinds of bets in craps such as the come bet, pass odds, don’t pass odds and many more.

Players who have a basic understanding of the game of craps can easily adjust themselves to online craps. Luckily, these days many online casinos provide free craps online. New players can take advantage of the free game to practice and hone their skills. If they want to test their luck, they can always start playing for real money.

When playing online craps for free, you can simply download the game or you can also click the ‘instant play’ button that will enable you to play immediately. If you think you need help when playing online craps, you can always communicate with the online casino support service. Most casinos also have a page for a detailed instruction on how to play the game. By opening the page, you will find a list of the rules, kinds of bets and other features which can be found in online craps. You can also learn about the different winning strategies. Since most online casinos have free games, you can always practice for as long as you want.
