List of games

The list of games of a casino is not always the same, it will depend on the casino. However, there are some common ones that every player should know :


Roulette is the most mythical game of chance in both traditional and online casinos . In roulette you can make bets on numbers or simple bets like red / black, odd / even … With small differences, we can distinguish between three types of roulette:

French or European : It consists of 37 numbers from 0 to 36. When the ball falls on 0, players have two options: leave the bet on the mat until the next roll or withdraw the bet by recovering only half of the bet amount .
American of a 0 : Like the French has 37 numbers from 0 to 36. If the ball falls to 0, players who have made simple bets will recover half of the amount bet.
American of two 00 : Unlike the other two, it has 38 numbers, from 0 to 36 plus double zero (00). As a general rule, when the ball falls to 0 in this type of roulette, players with simple bets will lose all bet amount, unless otherwise specified.

Black Jack

Blackjack is played based on a points system and is one of the easiest casino games to understand .

In blackjack all players play against the dealer (the bank), so the idea is to win this one. The objective of the game is to get a top play to the dealer without ever going over 21 points .


The players make their bets and then the dealer deals the cards. Each player will receive two uncovered cards and the dealer will deal himself an uncovered card as well. The values ​​of the cards are:

From 2 to 10 : The same value as the letter.
J, Q, K : Always worth 10.
Ace : It will be 1 or 11 depending on the player’s interest, that is, whether or not he is 21.
Once all the members have their cards, each player speaks. Players have 4 options:

– Request letter : players can ask

black JackGo as many letters as you wish. In case of over 21 the player loses the bet.
– Stand up : The player considers that he already has a good play and if he asks for a card he will pass, so he decides to stay the way he is.

– Double the bet : After having received the first two cards, each player has the option to double the bet made, however, after having doubled the bet, you will only have the option to receive one more card.

– Separate : If the two initial cards have the same value, they can be separated, making two independent plays.

Point and Banking or Baccarat

This game, the favorite of Asian players, is one of the most elite in the casino because of the limits it can reach. The point and bench has a main difference with the other games, and is that it is the only one in which the players can deal the cards. On the other hand, this has a limit of up to 14 players in each game, so the largest casino table will be dedicated to this game. In addition, and as you can see in the picture, sometimes there may be up to 3 croupiers.

Point and bank
The rules of the game are very simple to understand. The goal is to add 9 points , therefore, whoever gets 9 gets closer.

There are two hands: the point and the bank , the rest of players will be limited to betting on one or the other win or that they tie.

The values ​​of the cards are as follows:

From 2 to 9 : The same value as the letter.
10, J, Q, K : They will have a value of 10.
As : It will always have a value of 1.
Once each player has made his bet for the point, the bank or the tie, two cards are dealt to each player. Each hand will always have a value between 0 and 9. In the case that a hand has a score of 10 or greater, we would use only the number of units. If, for example, we have a score of 4 + 9 = 13, the value of our play would be 3.

If in the first hand one of the two players has a score in his hand of 8 or 9 , the game will be terminated . If one of the two hands exceeds 10, you will be obliged to receive a third card.

Although the tie has a higher gain (8 to 1) than the fact that it wins point or bench (1 to 1), it is not very advisable to bet on the tie since the odds of it occurring are much lower.
