The Top Gambling List Of Common Card Games

Apr 26, 2008
People have always loved playing card games, and it looks like there won't be anything changing that in the future, based on how much these games are enjoyed and loved all over the world. To my observation, the three most popular card games today in casinos are poker, blackjack, and finally baccarat. These games are often played among friends and family, and are also very much staples in every land-based or online casino you can find.

Perhaps what makes these card games so popular is the fact that they require a combination of skill and luck to win. Luck always plays a part in any card game, but you can actually increase your chances of winning when you play with good strategies. The excitement of wagering money, plus the natural fun that people enjoy from playing games of skill and chance makes card games a winner by all accounts.

Poker - The game is generally considered by a majority of card players as the king of card games. It has spawned many variations across the world. You only need a standard deck of 52 cards to play poker, although there are variations of poker that require less than 52 cards, and some others that need extra cards, called "wild cards". In poker, the jokers are generally used as the wild cards.

A card deck contains four suits: hearts, clubs, spades, and diamonds. Each suit has 13 cards, ranked from the lowest to the highest, as 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. Usually the Ace is the highest card in poker, but it can also be the lowest ranked, depending on which variation of poker you are playing. But no matter what variation you are playing, the objective of the game remains the same: make a stronger hand than your opponents have and win the pot.

Speaking of poker variations, the most popular today are Texas Hold 'Em, Omaha Hi-Low, Caribbean Stud, Draw Poker, 7-card Stud and 5-card Stud Poker. Several casinos also offer high stakes poker tournaments, and players can also indulge in free poker games for practice.

Blackjack - also called as "21", due to its French origins from a game called "Vingt Et Un". A 52-card deck is also used to play blackjack, but when you're playing in a casino, you can expect that two or more decks are mixed and used for the game. The value of the card is the number of the card itself, with court cards counting as 10. The ace can either be counted as 1 or 11, depending on the situation. In blackjack, however, the card's suit has no value.

To beat the banker's hand is the sole objective of blackjack. You and the dealer are dealt two cards in turn, and depending on the situation, both of you can draw cards until you make a total count of 21 or as close to 21 as possible. If your count goes over 21, it means you've busted and you automatically lose.
