Five Different Types of Casino Games

Casinos will have a fun selection of card, table and machine games, each with their own rules and stakes. With so many games to choose from it can be tough to know what’s what. We take a look at five different types of casino games and explain what they involve.


Blackjack is a card game that is played between the house and the players. The dealer places one of their cards face up and the other players then take it in turns to aim to get as close to 21 by adding up the value of their cards, without going ‘bust’.


In roulette the players will make wagers depending on where they think the spinning ball in the roulette wheel is going to land. There are lots of ways that you can bet, including on red or black, on individual numbers or on groups of numbers. When the ball lands in the numbered slots all of the wagers that correspond to that number will automatically win.

Texas Hold’em

Texas Hold’em is one of the most popular types of poker. It is where two cards are dealt to each player. A series of bets are placed until five cards come down on the table. The aim of the game is to make the best hand using five of the seven cards.


Slots machines are an incredibly popular type of casino game. They feature a variety of games but in general the player will have to pull a button or press a button to start the game. Money is won based on the pattern of symbols that are matched and how many lines are bet on.


Keno is a lottery game in which all players have a card that is marked from 1 to 80. The aim of the game is to pick numbers that you think will be called in the game. The announcer will call 20 numbers, and depending on the amount of numbers matched and the wager that you placed you will win a set amount of money.These are just a few of the many games you can often find at an online or physical casino. Good luck!
