There are many Irish casino players who focus solely on casino slots but online casinos have a host of other games available which are generally categorised as table games. The most popular of these are roulette and blackjack but few people play them both as they attract different kinds of players. Roulette is a game of pure luck with absolutely no skill involved whereas Blackjack does have an element of skill or at least judgement involved. Some roulette players think that paying attention to the numbers that have come up before can be a guide to what might come next but that is a complete myth. It is of course true that over time there will be as many black numbers as red numbers but the words “over time” are important. In one million spins of the wheel this is possibly true but in the space of time that most players spend at their online casino it is most certainly not true. Even if there have been ten black numbers in succession there is still only a 50/50 chance of the next one being red. Another faulty thought is that playing individual numbers is better than placing chips on splits or rows or columns. In fact there are no bets which are better than other bets in roulette. The odds paid are in direct proportion to the quantity of numbers backed. For example 17 and 20 are next to each other on the roulette table so you could either place one chip on each number or two chips on the line between the numbers known as a split bet. In the case of single bets, if one of them wins it pays at 35:1 which leaves you with 36 chips as your winning bet remains. In the case of the split a win pays at 17:1 which is 34 chips but your winning bet of 2 remains which means that you end up with the same 36 chips.

In Blackjack on the other hand there are decisions to be made which can influence your chances of winning. The idea of blackjack is of course to beat the dealer not as some say to get as close as possible to 21 without going over. This difference is important as the dealer will go over 21 on a number of occasions but if you are already out of the game by going bust yourself then you lose anyway. At you can play table games for free so just for interest play blackjack and follow the classic game that the dealer does by drawing cards anything less than 17 and standing on 17 or more. You will notice that you will go over 21 anything up to around 30% of the time. The secret to winning at blackjack therefore is to be around when the dealer goes bust. Even if you only hold 12 or 13 in your hand when this happens you still win. The theory is good but in practice of course it is more difficult to know when the dealer will go bust and the only clue you have is the one card of the dealer that is showing. A 5 or a 6 are recognised as weak dealer cards. All Irish Casino is a good place to practice your strategy when playing for free but it is also a good place for playing for real money when you are ready to do so.

There are plenty of other card games where there is no skill involved and probably the classic is Baccarat or Punto Banco as it is sometimes known. Baccarat has also got to be the simplest of casino games as there are only two hands dealt and there are only three possible bets which are for either hand to win or for the result to be a tie. The two hands are known as the player and the bank although they could be called anything as it has no effect on the game. In this online casino game you are not playing against the house or against other players as you can back either hand to win or for the result to a tie. What is more, the baccarat dealer plays both hands which sounds a little strange at first but the rules are so rigid that there is no room for discretion. The only thing you may need to master is the counting of the card values but once explained this is simple enough. In actual fact of course you can play baccarat without knowing the card values as you will be paid anyway if you win but it is always better to be able to follow what is going on.

Dice games are also included in online casino table games and the most popular of these is definitely Craps. Craps is more difficult to fully understand than many online casino games but fortunately there are some simple best which can get you started which are known as the Pass Line bet and the Don’t Pass Line bet. These are bets which are placed before any dice are rolled and are valid until either won or lost. Again playing free craps at All Irish Casino or any of the other online casinos that offer free play is a good idea to start with. You will soon notice that it can take several rolls of the dice to determine the winners and there are bets which can be placed after the first roll but the simple bets are those mentioned above. Most online casinos have a page describing the game of craps and how to play so a read of those pages will help a great deal in following what is going on but there is nothing like trying it out for yourself.

Online casinos have more table games which are not mentioned here so it is well worth looking around the site and trying a few of them out. You may just find one that excites you and at which you can win.
