Roulette

Roulette is one of the most famous casino games in the world. It involves a dealer dropping a ball into a spinning wheel. There are a number of slots in the wheel where the ball can land, each slot has a colour and a number attached to it. The numbers are 0 - 36. The 0 is green and all of the other numbers are either red or black.

The wagers that you can place are wide ranging. You can choose a colour, which is the most famous bet available, odds or evens or even just choose a single number. There is also the opportunity to place a wager on more than one option. Indian players also have the ability to play different types of Roulette, including American Roulette, European Roulette and French Roulette. These all have slightly different rules which makes your chances of winning different for each game.

Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the oldest card games in the whole world. It involves players sitting at a table and playing against the dealer. The aim of the game is to get closer to 21 than the dealer without going bust. You do this by either sticking with the cards you are originally dealt or asking for more to be dealt to you. If you go over 21 then you automatically lose. If you stay below 21 and the dealer goes over 21 then you will win. If you and the dealer are both under 21 then whoever is closest to 21 will win.

Blackjack has a range of different actions available to players. This includes things like splitting. Splitting is when a player is dealt two identical cards. They will then have the option to split it into two separate hands. From here they will have two chances to beat the dealer.

There are also side bets available which can give Indian players a better chance of getting an extra win. An example of a side bet is insurance. This is on offer when the dealer is showing an Ace. The player will make an extra bet on insurance. If the dealer then has a natural Blackjack then the insurance bet will pay out at 2/1.

Baccarat

Baccarat will probably be most familiar to players as the card game of James Bond. It was first introduced to Indian movie fans in Dr No. Here Bond plays Baccarat and manages to win. It’s essentially a very similar game to Blackjack, except in online Baccarat the player doesn’t make any choices as to how the game is played. The dealer instead plays the best possible game for both them and the player.

Players will then bet on who they think will win. The player, the dealer or a tie. The dealer has a slight edge over the player in Baccarat so there is often a small commission that has to be paid to the casino when betting on the dealer and winning. Baccarat is seen as a high class game and is often played for very high stakes. Because of this Indian players will notice that there are a lot of high roller and VIP versions of Baccarat on offer at online casinos.

Slots

Slots are probably the most common game that you will see at online casinos. They cover a wide range of different themes and some of them can even be completely different games. The majority of slot games are played by dropping a number of symbols on the reels. There will be paylines involved in the game which will then check for any wins. However, there are some games that work without paylines and just check to see if symbols are adjacent to each other. There are even slots that just have to have a certain number of symbols on the reels, they don’t need to be on a payline or adjacent.

The wide range of choice and the overall level of excitement of slots is what really appeals to Indian players the most. A lot of slots also have bonus features which make them even more enjoyable. There are also progressive jackpot slots on offer. These are titles that work just like a normal slot, but they have the opportunity to win a huge prize that is added to by every player that plays it around the world. These games can sometimes award life changing wins.

Craps

Craps is a classic casino game. It is played by rolling dice onto a game area. Players will make bets on what they think the dice will land on. At online casinos the dice are controlled by a random number generator. These are certified as random in order to ensure that casinos are fair when playing these games.

Craps tends to be one of the less common titles that are available to players at Indian casinos, so if you’re a fan of Craps then you might have to look quite hard in order to play it.

(Video) Poker

Although Texas Hold 'm poker can be found in many land based casinos, a lot of online casinos do not offer this game. When you are looking for online poker you should look for a poker website or pick video poker from the lobby.
