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

Poker

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.

Blackjack

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.






Baccarat
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.
