So come on over and buckle into the table games train. SlotsLV will be your guide, and this tour will cover the best online table games for real money that are bursting with fun and potential to win. First, stop: Blackjack.
How to Start Playing Blackjack
There’s a good reason Blackjack is one of the most famous online table games for real money. It’s easy to learn, has a remarkably low house edge, and has the most solid strategies that anyone can use, no matter the level of experience they bring to the table.
To play online Blackjack at SlotsLV, find the “TABLE GAMES” tab. Then, look for “BLACKJACK GAMES”. See? Blackjack is so popular it gets its own VIP room in the casino!
You’ll notice you can choose from 8 different styles to play online Blackjack here. If you’re just starting out, perhaps stick with Classic to get your fundamentals down. If you’re more experienced, you’ll love European Blackjack or Perfect Pairs. For now we’ll focus on the classic game.
If you’ve spent any time in a casino or grew up with a few packs of playing cards in your home, you’re likely familiar with the rules, but a refresher course is always helpful if it’s been a while since your last hand.
The game is between you and the Dealer. The idea is to get a sum of cards as close to 21 as possible without going over, and also being higher than the Dealer. You start out by selecting your chips and hitting “Deal”. You get two cards face up, and the Dealer gets two cards but only one is showing. Based on the cards you can see, you have to either hit and take a new card, or stand and keep the cards you have, among a few other things.
Once you’ve made your decision, you face the Dealer. If you got a natural Blackjack, you just got paid at 3:2. If you won the round regularly, you got paid 1:1. Not bad if you deposit and play now for a table game quickie!
How to Start Playing American Roulette
There’s nothing quite like the rickety-rack of a Roulette ball as it darts its way around the wheel and clunks into the pocket of its choice. Hopefully the pocket you chose too, of course. Then the game is really fun.
When it comes to online table games for real money, American Roulette is an excellent choice for those who like variety when they’re betting, both in the type of game and within the game itself. Did you know that there are two types of Roulette? We have the American version as well as a European version. For now, we’ll just focus on the American version.
To play, go to “TABLE GAMES” and hone in on “American Roulette” (which, by the way, is also optimized beautifully for mobile play).
To play, you’ll have to choose from… well, a gajillion different bets. Don’t worry – you won’t have to sit through a detailed report on all of them. You just need to know the best ones to win! So here’s the gist.
You’ve got both outside and inside bets. Outside bets means you’re betting on the outside portion of the wheel. Those would include: red or black, odds or evens, and groups of numbers covering either 1-18 or 19-36 (also called low/high). These are the safest best to make because their odds are better and they pay even money (1:1).
Inside bets are when you bet on either a specific number or a very specific group of numbers, such as two or four numbers that sit adjacent on the wheel. Inside bets are riskier, but the payouts are much, much higher, up to 35:1 (for a single number).
How to Start Playing Tri Card Poker
If you’re like many bettors out there, you may have avoided the poker table at a land casino. Unless you really know your way around the deck, the sober circle of calculating players can be a little intimidating.
That’s exactly why, if you’ve been hesitant to join a table, you’ll love Tri Card Poker: it’s a judgment-free zone to test and perfect your skills in online table games for real money without the added social pressure.
So take a big sigh of relief! This game is all about you, the Dealer, and 3 simple cards.
Tri Card Poker is also found inside the “TABLE GAMES” section. To start the game, you’ll have to make your Ante (starting bet). Select your chips, and hit “Deal”. You get three cards face up, and the Dealer gets three cards face down. If you think you can beat the Dealer based on your three cards, then hit “Raise” and enter the showdown. If not, simply “Fold” and call the whole thing off (forfeiting your Ante).
When the Dealer reveals his cards, he’s got to have at least a Queen to qualify. If he doesn’t, then you automatically get paid 1:1 on your Ante, and your Raise is pushed. If he does, then the best hand between you both is the winner.
Tri Card poker is one of the best online table games for real money because, while the game itself is simple, you still have the option to raise the stakes even more with a side bet. When you make an optional Pair Plus bet at the beginning of the round, you get paid separately if your hand shows a pair or higher – whether or not you beat the Dealer. It’s really a sweet deal!
How to Start Playing Baccarat
If you thought it was fast and easy to play online Blackjack, just wait until you try Baccarat! This game is smooth and pacey, and the decisions are really easy when you need to make them.
For starters, are you still in the “TABLE GAMES” section? Great! That’s where Baccarat is found, and that’s where we want to be. Like many other card-focused online table games for real money, Baccarat is a game that’s played between you and the Dealer.
In this case, you are considered the Player, and the dealer is considered the Banker. You can bet on either one to win, and you can also bet on a tie. The idea is to see who gets a higher sum of cards that’s closest to 9. If you bet on the Player to win and that’s the case, you get paid 1:1. If it’s the Banker, you get paid 1:1, minus a 5% commission.
Now, here’s the deal with a tie. If there’s a tie between the two hands, you get paid handsomely at 9:1. But, don’t be so quick to slap your chips down in the tie circle: winning a tie has very tiny odds, with only a 9.6% chance.
The Banker and the Player, on the other hand, share rather nice odds. The Player wins 44.6% of the time, while the Banker wins 45.8%. As long as you stick to one of those two, you can kick back, relax, and watch a steady growth to your bankroll, Baccarat style.
How to Start Playing Roll the Dice
Our final stop for today’s tour is in…China. Bet you didn’t see that one coming!
Roll the Dice is based on a classic Chinese game, which has also been called Hoo Hey How or Fish-Prawn-Crab. And being a table game, you’d correctly assume it can be found in the “TABLE GAMES” section.
Right away you should know that the payouts in Roll the Dice are some of the best in online table games for real money. You can make 33:1 on just one flick of the wrist. And it must be said, the game board isn’t hard on the eyes, either: it wouldn’t be a stretch to tell you it’s visually stunning.
The white board is made up of 7 betting squares, each with a happy, colorful animation inside. Among the betting options are: a fish, prawn, crab, coin, rooster, calabash and three dice which are called a triple. With each roll, you can choose whichever square you’d like to bet on, as well as multiple squares at once.
After you’ve made your selection, hit “Roll” on the bottom right to shake up the dice under a Chinese rice bowl.
If your symbol of choice appears once on a die, you get paid 1:1 for that symbol. If your symbol appears twice, you get a bit more at 2:1. If your symbol appears on all three die, you get paid 12:1. If you had opted for the Triple Bet and any symbol appears on all 3 die, then you get 33:1. Phew!
The online table games train is officially rolling to its final stop. Please be sure to take all of your winnings and newfound expertise, and secure them tightly as you alight. The guided tour has concluded, but each of these online table games for real money are still here to give you a far more thrilling ride. Any time you want at SlotsLV.
