The list ensures that Australians never go out of options to vouch for their victory with this extensively spread gaming buffet that serves every platter – big or small.

 

Here is the list of Casino games, pick your favourite:

 

1. POKIES

Pokies are the slot machines found extensively at many gaming locations around Australia. The game got its name as part of the crude abbreviation of the Aussie tribe where we call Australia as ‘Straya'. Found at almost all major pubs, restaurants and gaming venues, Pokies is one of the most popular casino games which is fondly played by Australians in a large number. Australian-style gaming machines commonly use video displays to create physical reels, usually five. These machines have additional bonus add-up and second-screen features such as free games and bonus levels. They also permit for multiple lines (up to 200) or numerous ways (up to 3,125) to be played.

 

2. BINGO

This is the game where people win big by dabbing the lucky numbers in the Bingo card. A player wins by completing a row, column, or diagonal. The numbers that are called in a game of bingo may be drawn utilizing a variety of methods to randomly generate the ball call. With the expansion of computer technology in bingo, electronic random number generators (RNG) are now commonplace in most of the places. There are variations of Bingo like Horse Racing Bingo, Table bingo, Electronic bingo etc.

 

3. CRAPS

A classic dice game which is a must at all the casinos. Using two dice, players must strike a certain number to win while betting on the result. Also called as Casino Craps and Table Craps, players use casino chips in place of cash to bet on the Craps "layout", which is a fabric surface which displays the various bets. The bets vary a bit among casinos in availability, locations, and payouts.

 

 

4. ROULETTE

It is one of the oldest casino games which features a wheel with pockets, a small ball and a table of bets. The gamblers wager on the outcome to win their bet back when the ball lands on a number in the wheel which they had bet on. Each casino may set which bets are offered and different payouts for them, though a core set of bets and payouts are typical. Players take turns rolling two dice and whoever is throwing the dice is called the "shooter". Players can bet on the various options by placing chips directly on the appropriately-marked sections of the layout or asking the base dealer or stickman to do so, depending on which bet is being made.

 

5. BACCARAT

Baccarat is a simple card game, where the target is to reach a hand total of nine with two cards. It is a comparing card game played between two hands, the "player" and the "banker". Each baccarat coup (round of play) has three possible outcomes: "player" (player has the higher score), "banker", and "tie". The origins of the game are disputed, and some sources claim that it dates to the 19th century. Other sources claim that the game was introduced into France from Italy at the end of the 15th century by soldiers returning from the Franco-Italian War during the reign of Charles VIII.

 

6. BLACKJACK

It is a comparing card game between one or more players and a dealer, where each player, in turn, competes against the dealer. Players do not compete against each other. It is played with one or more decks of 52 cards and is the most widely played casino banking game in the world. In this case, players must get as close to 21 as possible without going over. If played with basic strategy, Blackjack has the most favourable odds for online casino players.

 

7. KENO

Keno is a lottery-like gambling game often played at modern casinos, and also offered as a game by some lotteries. Players wager by choosing numbers ranging from 1 through (usually) 80. After all the players make their wagers, 20 numbers (some variants draw fewer numbers) are drawn at random, either with a ball machine similar to ones used for lotteries and bingo or with a random number generator.

Each casino sets its own series of payouts, called "paytables". The player is paid based on how many numbers were chosen (either player selection, or the terminal picking the numbers), the number of matches out of those chosen, and the wager. Similar to Bingo, Keno players draw numbers from a plastic ball and tick them off on an online card.

 

 

8. POKER

Poker is a family of card games that combines gambling, strategy and different skills. All poker variants involve betting as an intrinsic part of the play, and determine the winner of each hand according to the combinations of players' cards, at least some of which remain hidden until the end of the hand.
