Blackjack graces the floors of many land-based establishments, not to mention the game lobbies of most big-time operators. Although fairly easy to pick up, its relatively simple rules belie the sophisticated, strategic nature of this celebrated gambling game.
Up to seven players can participate in games of blackjack. The goal is to beat the dealer by hitting 21 or as close a possible through the sum total of two cards. Wins are also possible by attaining a higher score than the dealer that doesn’t go over 21, or if the dealer continues to draw cards that eventually exceed 21.
Poker is a family of casino card games that has seen a massive increase in popularity over the past twenty years or so. Originally a mainstay of bricks-and-mortar casinos as well as private gatherings, the game became an online international phenomenon thanks to the multi-table tournaments introduced by Party Poker and Pokerstars in 2001.
Variations include Omaha, Seven-Card Stud, Razz and Five-Card Draw. However, Texas Hold ’em is by far the most popular and can be played at an extensive array of online casinos.

Points directly correspond to the card’s values, save for face cards which, unlike games of poker or blackjack, are worth zero while aces are 1 point. Before cards are dealt, participants can bet on either the player or banker winning the round or a tie.
