If you haven’t played Roulette before, you may have seen the iconic wheel online, in advertisements or in television shows or films.
A game of Roulette only needs a handful of components to begin:
- A pocketed wheel
- A table with a corresponding layout
- A small ball, also known as a pill
- Betting chips
- A dealer/croupier
The aim of Roulette is to correctly predict the outcome of the game, by placing a betting chip(s) on the table that corresponds to the pocketed compartment of the wheel you believe the ball will land.
Every game of Roulette begins with the dealer opening the betting window. It’s during this time that any and all bets for the game need to be placed. After a few minutes, the dealer will close the betting window and no more bets will be allowed to be placed.
The wheel will then be spun and the pill entered into play. The dealer and players all look on as the ball bounces around the wheel. It isn’t until the wheel has come to a complete halt that the location of the ball will be announced.
Any players who guessed correctly will be awarded their winnings. All other chips left on the table will be swept away by the dealer and the table will be set for another game to commence.
Only called Blackjack in recent decades, this iconic game started its journey into the hearts of casino goers as Vingt et Un, which translates to Twenty-One.
Vingt et Un, Twenty-One, 21 or as it’s known now in most places around the world, Blackjack, is a game of chance played between a player and the dealer. Whether you’re playing a game of Blackjack in a land-based casino or online, a game will always be between you both only. Anyone sitting around the Blackjack table will not interfere or have any effect on your game.
The aim of each game is to have a hand of cards that holds a value of 21, or as close to 21 as possible, without exceeding.
All playing cards hold values. Numbered cards hold the value of the number stated on the card. Royal cards hold the value of 10 and the Aces of the deck hold two values – 1 and 11.
To play, the dealer will deal you two cards, face up, whilst dealing themselves two cards, one face up, the other face down. You’ll then need to add your cards together to find your total.
If you feel you need another card added to your hand to reach or get closer to 21, you can ask to be hit with another card. If this card takes you over 21, you lose. If, however, you reach 21 or are close to 21 without needing another card added, you can stick.
It’s only when you have stuck with your hand that the dealer will reveal their face down card. The dealer will total their cards and hit themselves with another card if needs be. If the dealer ends with a higher hand than yours, without exceeding 21, you lose. If you hold the higher hand, under 21, you win. If you both end the game on 21, you neither lose nor win.
You can find both Roulette and Blackjack waiting for you when you visit an online casino, as well as many other games such as Slots, Poker, Baccarat and so much more. With so much choice, what will you be playing next?
