Top Online Casino Games

CasinoThere are countless online casino games to choose from at some of the top casino betting sites online, especially if you include all of the various slot machine options.  That being said there are a few staple games that get by far the most action at online casino rooms.  These games include blackjack, roulette and craps.  Let’s take a look at each of these games including how you play and the house edge.  Each of these games can be played on any downloaded online casino software.


Blackjack is probably the most popular casino game there is.  In blackjack the player attempts to get as close to 21 without going over.  After the player stays at a certain number the dealer then shows their cards and hits until they are typically above a soft 17, or they bust.  The house edge in blackjack is generally around 0.5% depending on the house rules, which means if you are betting with optimal strategy you would lose an average of just $0.50 for every $100 wagered.


Roulette is a very basic and exciting casino game that involves selecting different numbers or sets of numbers and earning a payout depending on the odds of hitting your selection.  The European roulette wheel includes a 0, which is where the house gains an edge.  The American version contains a 0 and a 00, which doubles the house edge.  You should always try to play European real money roulette online.  The house edge is 2.7%, which means you would average a loss of $2.70 for every $100 wagered.


Craps is a very complicated game because of the vast number of bets you can make on the table.  In general the “pass line” bet is the typical bet that all players make so we will focus on that betting option.  With a pass line bet the dice must land on a 7 or 11 on the first roll for the bet to win, while the bet automatically loses if the first roll lands as a 2, 3 or 12.  If none of these numbers are rolled then the rolled number becomes the “point” and that number must be rolled again before a 7 or an 11 in order for the pass bet to win.  The house edge on a pass line bet is 1.41%, which means that you would average a loss of $1.41 for every $100 wagered.

These three casino games are extremely common and a lot of fun, especially when you get the hang of the rules and understand the optimal strategies.
