Home Casino Games
Online gambling has become extremely popular. The ease and comfort of gambling from your own home attracts many players. Online casinos make it more attractive by offering free money, graphic games, and a wide variety of games. Most online casinos will let you play for fun, while others allow you to play for cash, made possible by creditcard, NETeller, and/or Firepay payments, and many more online payment possibilities are currently being developed. Here we will discuss the popular home casino games. Caribbean poker holds similarities to both blackjack and video poker. The player plays against the dealer, independently of other players. Your goal as the player is to beat the dealer's hand. After you ante, you are dealt a five-card hand; the dealer is also dealt five cards of which only one is exposed. You can now either folds and lose your ante, or bet an additional amount equal to exactly twice the ante. The dealer then reveals his remaining four cards.
If the dealer's hand is not Ace-King or better, you are paid even money on the ante and nothing (i.e., a push) on the bet. If the dealer's hand is Ace-King or better it is said to qualify for play against yours. In that case, if the dealer's hand is better than yours, the player's ante and bet are collected by the house. If the dealer's qualifying hand is worse than yours, you are paid even money on the ante and an amount on the bet according to your hand. In Draw Poker, one of the popular home casino games a single deck is shuffled each hand and the object is to match cards. Five cards are given to you in the first hand. You may keep or discard (and replace) as many of the 5 as you want. Then, the 2nd hand is played. Payouts are determined by the ranking of your final 5-card hand. In blackjack, the object is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Face Cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11. Other cards are represented by their number. If you have more points than the House (without going over 21), you win. If the House has more points than you (without going over 21), the House wins.
If you and the House tie, it is a push and no one wins. If you are dealt an Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards, you automatically win at a rate of 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties. To play roulette, you begin by placing your wager(s) on the table. You can place as many different bets, and as many different types of bets as you want for each spin of the wheel, as long as your bets do not exceed the table limit. The Roulette table, the swashbuckling of home casino games is composed of two sections, the wheel itself and the betting layout, better known as the Roulette layout. Heading the layout design is a space containing the figures 0 and 00. The main portion of the design is composed of 36 consecutively numbered rectangular spaces, colored red and black alternately, arranged in three columns of 12 spaces each, and beginning with 1 at the top and concluding with 36 at the bottom. Directly below the numbers are three spaces marked 2 to 1. Along one side of the columns are rectangular spaces marked 1st 12, 2nd 12 and 3rd 12. Further outside are spaces labeled 1 to 18, 19 to 36, Odd, Even, and two diamonds colored Red and Black. Each space, individually or in combination with other spaces, represents a possible wager.
