There are hundreds or maybe thousands of casino table games to try, both online and in a brick-and-mortar casino. Some of them require only chance, but for others, you need some playing strategy also.
Roulette, poker, blackjack, and baccarat are just some of the most famous and iconic card games. But if you played enough of these games, then there are other casino table games, which are less popular.
Here are five of the less popular such games which you can try:
Casino Hold’em Poker
This type of poker is similar to TXS Hold’em Poker. In fact, is the easier version of the TXS game. There are fewer bets involved, the ante and call bets. The game is best for poker beginner players and is faster than TXS Hold’em.
When playing, you need to beat the dealer’s hand, but there is also a side bet available – an optional AA bonus bet. To qualify, the dealer must have a pair of 4s or better. If the dealer does not qualify, the ante bet is paid according to the AnteWin paytable.
The paytable typically pays a royal flush 100 to 1, a straight flush 20 to 1, and four of a kind 10 to 1.
When it comes to the house edge, this varies depending on the rules in the casino. It is usually between just below 2% and around 2.5%.
Mississippi Stud is another casino table game based on poker. Some view it as part of a new generation of table games which are designed for younger people. It offers strategies that are easier to learn, and also a lower house advantage than blackjack.
The players are playing against a house dealer, and not against other players at the table, as in other poker games. But there is a difference from the usual house-banked games, as in this one the hands are not compared to that of the dealer, instead of against a payout table.
This payout table pays out on the result of the hands the players have. For example, a royal flush has a 500 to 1 payout, while a straight flush has 100 to 1, and four of a kind has 40 to 1.
A proprietary casino table game, Casino War is based on the game of War – a simple card game played by two players with a standard card deck. The game is very easy to understand and play.
There are six standard card desk, being ranked the same as in the poker game. And it is very simple: The dealer and a player get one card each, and the winner is that whose card is higher.
When the two have the same card, there is a tie. In this situation, the player has the option to either surrender, in which case loses the bet, or to double the stake and go on with the war.
The game is fast and exciting, and there is no experience needed. Actually, the original game of War was indeed a children’s game.
Monopoly Big Spin
Inspired by the classical game, this one keeps the same “become the next property tycoon” air as the board game.
It is a roulette-like wheel slot, and the players can place wagers among 14 zones. The wheel is spined by placing 0.1$ on at least one zone. The maximum bet for each zone is 50$, which means the highest stakes are 700$.
The different colored zones pay differently, of course, from 5 to 1 for the brown zones, to 25 to 1 for the dark blue. There are also six bonus segments on the wheel, and here you may be very familiar with the terms: Community Chest, Utilities, Railroads, Chance, Free Parking, and Go. Free Parking pays 30 to 1, and also two free spins, while Go pays 40 to 1 and a free spin.
The RTP is 95.7%.
3-Hand Casino Hold’em
3-Hand Casino Hold’em is a very interesting variety of poker, which implies playing three hands at the same time, instead of one. This means you have three chances of defeating the dealer, using the cards from a single deck, and a lot more fun.
The aim is also to have a better hand than the dealer, and it is played at a classic poker table with a classic design and tokens. You can place the ante bet or the AA bonus bet. To begin playing, you have to place the ante bet on one, two or three hands. Upon winning at the AA bonus bet, you will be paid immediately.
When playing this game online, you will hear jazz music, and also a special sound when you will make a move. The house edge is similar to other poker games, with an RTP usually of just under 98%.
