Gambling Guide to casino games

What are casino games?
Casino games – also called table games - can be played in a casino or online. Gambling activities may include card, dice and random number games played on a table. These are managed by a representative of the casino known as the croupier or dealer. Some of the best known games include poker, blackjack, baccarat and roulette. Casino games work by allowing customers to purchase chips and to bet these on the outcomes of a game (such as a round of poker) or an event (such as spinning a roulette wheel).

Going to a casino is a form of entertainment, but can become harmful. You’re likely to spend more that you win, so it should never be counted on as a way to make money.

The difference between skill and chance-based games
Games of pure chance. These include roulette, baccarat, money wheel and pokie machines. The odds are not affected by anything the player does or anything they think they know.
Games of partial skill like blackjack and poker. Some knowledge and judgement may increase your chances of guessing a winning outcome but chance still plays a large role in the result.
The following games are
Your brain sees patterns that aren’t there
Your brain is constantly scanning the world for things that are predictable and meaningful so that it knows what to do next. However, it runs into problems when it tries to spot patterns in games that are random. Random means that it’s impossible to predict the future from the past. So in games like roulette, craps, baccarat, keno, wheel of fortune and pokie machines, the brain sees patterns that aren’t there.

Take roulette for example...
You may see an electronic display that shows the outcomes of the last few spins. It’s tempting to check the displays for patterns and change your bets according to what you see. But it doesn’t matter what you bet - the next spin is unrelated to all previous spins. The little ball has no memory and can’t remember where it last landed. Don't be fooled by any patterns, they are just an illusion.

Is it your turn to win?
Some roulette players may continue playing even if they are consistently losing because they feel it is their turn to win. If you see that number 23 has not come up for a long time it may seem logical to think it must come up soon. But the outcome of the roulette wheel is random and it does not have a memory. Number 23 has the same chance of winning on any spin.

I suggest you visit the RichPrize site and try some games there. It seems this resource has put together the richest collection of all possible gambling entertainment. So far, I do not risk to invest big money, but one day I will seriously test my luck. And now I am lonely training on other free resources. My winnings are only virtual, but it also brings much excitement.
