Take the following list of 10 popular casino games to inspire your gaming-spirit before heading over to test your luck at Sacramento Casino Capitol Casino!
1. Bingo: The object of this game is for the player to fill one of the columns on the 5×5 matrix on their card, using the randomly called out numbers that also appear on their card.
2. Baccarat: The card game of Baccarat is played with up to 12-14 players at a table, with each player having three basic options: Player, Banker, or Tie. After the bets are placed, the dealer deals two, two-card hands, i.e., the Player and the Banker hand, with the higher of the two hands being the winning hand.
3. Wheel of Fortune: This ultimate game of luck is played simply with the spin of a 52- sectioned wheel, with the winners being those who picked the number the wheel comes to a stop at.
4. Keno: Another popular lottery game, Keno is played by choosing up to 20 numbers on a card and a wager, with the card being numbered 1-80. Once bets are placed and the cards are registered, 20 randomly selected numbers are called out, and players try to match as many of those to their corresponding choices.
5. Pai Gow Poker: When playing Pai Gow, a 53-card deck is used, with the single joker in the deck being semi-wild, each player is dealt seven cards, with which they create both a 5-card high hand, as well as a 2-card low high, with the rule that the high hand must be of higher poker value than that of the low hand. Each hand is compared against the dealers, of which a player must beat both in order to win.
6. Roulette: This table game is played with the spinning of a wheel, prior to which players can make either a single bet or a range of bets on multiple numbers, or the colors, or the odd/even category.
7. Slots: The most straight-forward game at any casino, the player makes a bet and pulls the lever, looking to ring up 3 (sometimes 5) same symbols on the wheel.
8. Blackjack: Also known as ’21’, the player plays directly against the dealer in this card game by taking turns flipping their cards and making a decision to either hit or stand, with the ultimate goal of reaching a hand-total of 21 without going over. The value of an ace is either 1 or 11, with face cards being 10.
9. Craps: This exciting dice game is played by placing bets on the outcome of what the roll will be, what a series of rolls will be, or on a pair of dice. The players take turns rolling two dice (i.e., acting as the ‘shooter’), only after placing their bet on the ‘Pass’ or the ‘Do not pass’ line, which is how they bet on the outcome of the round.
10. Poker: There are many variations of this ultimate gambling game which are played at different casinos, but the basic idea is using a 5-card hand, players compete against the other players at the table for the best hand which are ranked according the rules of the poker-variant being played. Players reveal their cards after a series of bets, for which the rules also vary based on the specific variant being played.
