Sometimes it seems there are a dozen new games in every online and land based casino I visit, and the industry's game maker is constantly inventing more games. Several games are enhanced versions of classic casino games with an additional steroid download, while others are brand new from the start. With this thought in mind, I decided to take a look at some of the classic casino games that have been the test of time.


The most popular version of poker played at casinos right now is Texas Hold'em. It is said that the popularity of this game is largely attributed to its exposure on television, where thousands and perhaps millions of people have seen famous celebrities play Texas Hold'em for big games. But you will need to have a lot of experience playing low limit games and learning the ins and outs of this poker game before you consider yourself worthy of playing in a high stakes casino tournament.

The games you may have seen on TV are No Limit Texas Hold'em games. What does unlimited mean? This means that all chips can be inserted at any time a player wishes. This makes exciting games on TV, but if you are a beginner, you should play Limit Texas Hold'em games first. The money you can bet in each round is limited and betting rounds are more controlled to start.


Another popular card game that has been an institution in casinos, blackjack can be played with one deck, up to six or even eight card decks. The dealer retains and offers cards during blackjack games on one or two decks, while a "shoe" is used to distribute cards in games that use three or more decks. Today, however, continuous mixing machines are used in more and more casinos. These continuous mixers can automatically mix and process the cards, making it easier and more accurate for the dealer to hand out cards to players while frustrating attempts to count cards.

No matter how many decks are used, the basic game remains the same for blackjack: beat the dealer. If a player gets a higher number than the dealer without going over 21, you win the round. A "bust" means that you have exceeded the number of 21 in your hand. If the dealer breaks, you win. If you burst, you lose automatically, regardless of whether the dealer also breaks his hand.


Roulette is a classic game where you try to predict the correct number that will appear after the spin of the wheel. In addition to betting on a single number, roulette players can also bet on a combination of numbers, bet on the color of the winning number, or if it will be even or odd.
