Blackjack is one of the most captivating casino games. One reason Blackjack is so popular is because winning is not completely down to chance, but can be a test of skill and strategy. The objective of Blackjack is to beat the croupier. Blackjack offers a challenge to the experienced player, whereby using his or her skills the house advantage can be reduced to as little as 0.5%. However, the new player relying more on luck, can achieve equal rewards.
An experienced player will swing the chances in his favour by counting cards: He will keep track of the cards played and anticipate those remaining in the pack to help his odds. Licensed casinos use upwards of four decks (as do we for realism), making calculation more difficult. Since this activity relies on concentration and a clear head it rarely lasts long into the party, and since the emphasis is on FUN, it is a trend we enthusiastically support!
American roulette adds excitement and exhilaration to any fun casino night. The aim is to predict which number on the roulette wheel that the ball will land on. The roulette layout is divided into inside bets and outside bets:
A two-number bet, called a ‘split bet’ – pays 17 to 1.
A three-number bet, called a ‘street bet’ – pays 11 to 1.
A four-number bet, called a ‘corner bet’ – pays 8 to 1.
A six-number bet – pays 5 to 1.
A bet on the outside ‘even money bets’ – pays 1 to 1.
