Caribbean Stud Poker is an extremely popular casino-based poker variant that is solely played against the dealer with a standard deck of 52 cards. The game is popular because it is rather simple to play in comparison to other poker games available on the casino floor. It is played using only five cards, has only two main betting boxes, uses the same hand values as other Hold’em games and almost always has a progressive jackpot that is significant in payout. Unlike other poker games, Caribbean stud poker does not allow the player to draw, improve one’s hand or even bluff. However, it does have the same betting structure as other poker games with regards to wagers (antes) and calls. In terms of the overall objective, just have a better hand than the dealer after the betting rounds.
Keno is a fairly simple lottery-based game that combines the picking of numbers, as you do with the modern-day lottery system and bingo. It is extremely popular in casinos because it is easy to play, requires very little skill and has little to no restrictions. Winning is based purely on the luck of the number draw and it is one of the only games where players can win multiple prizes. The drawback to Keno is that it has a high house edge ranging anywhere from 4-30%.
Baccarat Punto Banco, the North American version of Baccarat, is a relatively simple game of chance played out as a contest between two opposing hands. On one side, the player and on the other the banker, with both hands trying to get as close to nine as possible. The game was originally played by only the elite, whereas now-a-days it attracts wealthy gamblers due to its high win rate chance and low house edge.
Texas Hold’em is a poker-based card game that involves a community card pile, betting procedures (antes) and ten different card combinations. It requires a huge amount of attention to detail, bluffing or tricking of other players at the table, strategy, skill and ultimately patience. It is played with a standard 52-card deck and pits the player against other players both at live games and at online game tables. Specifically, when at a casino, the player can also play Texas Hold’em “video poker” which only pits the player against an invisible dealer.
