Popular Casino Card Games

Card games and dices

Card games can be played for fun with friends or alone. But did you know that they also play an important role in the game selection at casinos? With online card games, you can play for fun or bet to win real money all from the comfort of your home. Learn more about some of the most popular casino card games here!

1. Poker

Poker is not a specific game but rather an umbrella term of different hazard games that have similar rules and gameplay. What they all have in common is that they are played using a deck of cards. Some poker games have shared cards on the table while others only have cards on hand. The amount of playing cards also varies depending on the poker variant in play.

With poker, you play against the other players on the table. The goal is to have the best hand of them all – or to bluff well enough that your opponents believe you have the best hand…

Some popular variants of poker include Casino Hold’Em, Texas Hold’em, Omaha, and 7 Card Stud.

2. Blackjack

Blackjack can also be called a form of poker. The game is also known as “21”. In this game, the goal is simply to get as close as possible to the sum of 21 on your hand. But if your hand has a value higher than 21, you go bust and lose.

Oh and here is the kicker! With blackjack, you aren’t playing the other players around the table. No, in this game your only opponent is the dealer – who deals cards both to you and him-/herself. If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s then you win. It doesn’t matter what the other players have on their hands, you only need to worry about the dealer.

Blackjack is a quick and easy game that doesn’t require a lot of skills. But if you practice and make use of smart strategies, you can quickly master the game and cleverly play the dealer.

3. Andar Bahar

Andar Bahar is another well-known card game found at many casinos. This game is particularly popular for Indian casino players, but it is also growing in popularity internationally. 

In the game, you bet on the outcome of the cards being dealt. You can either bet on Andar (left) or Bahar (right). You start off by choosing your side and then cards are dealt. If you have bet on the correct side, you win!

How to play card games online

When playing card games at land-based casinos, you will be dealt real cards by a real dealer. When playing online, on the other hand, everything is machine-generated and virtual. You can choose to play fully automatic games that don’t have any human interaction, but thanks to modern technology, that’s not where online casinos peak.

With live casino games, you can actually play against and interact with real dealers and players from all over the world. So while you won’t get to place the actual cards in your hand, you will experience the social aspect of card games while playing real money games. If you prefer, though, you can stick to virtual card games fully automated by RNGs.

If you want to try some casino card games – or other casino games – online, all you have to do is sign up at an online casino. Once you’ve signed up, you can head to the game selection and find your desired game. Try it for free or make a deposit to play for real money (and get the chance to win real money while having fun).
