- Online Casino
- Table Games
When you walk into a Vegas casino, the vast majority of floorspace is consumed by slots. Likewise, in an online casino, slots will perhaps account for three quarters of the games on offer. Yet it is still the traditional casino table games that our minds immediately turn to when we think of a night at the casino. That’s as true in cyberspace as it is in the real world, and for all the drama associated with the slots, it is online table games that always attract the most players.
In part, it is probably down to the cultural casino references we all grew up with. After all, you never saw James Bond balance his dry martini on top of a cabinet while he had a quick game of Starburst. But there is also the simple truth that casino table games are fun, easy to play and have stood the test of time.
You can’t beat the classics
At Mount Gold online casino, we are delighted to bring you the best choice of casino table games. Blackjack, roulette, baccarat, various forms of poker, dice and others, the list goes on and on.
Most of these games have been around for hundreds of years, and many will say you shouldn’t mess with a winning formula. If you agree with this perspective, you’ll find tables at Mount Gold where you can play each of these classic online table games according to the rules that have been around for years.
If, on the other hand, you are willing to try something a little different, there are also intriguing new games on offer. Some of these are variations of classic casino table games that have been dreamt up by some of the best game developers around. They include Lightning Roulette and First Person Baccarat to name just two – give them a try and see what you think!
Which casino table games will you play?
If you are new to casino games, the most difficult part can be knowing where to start. At Mount Gold casino, we have a fondness for every single one of the games we offer. But if we had to choose, we would always say head across to the casino table games for the most enjoyable and immersive experience. You then have several choices. Here are four of the most popular:
- Blackjack is consistently rated the number one casino game, both in terms of physical casinos and when it comes to playing online table games. It’s the card game that everyone knows how to play. But don’t be fooled by the apparent simplicity. Spend a little time exploring blackjack strategy and your win rate will noticeably improve!
- The roulette wheel is perhaps the most iconic symbol of the casino. There is less to worry about in terms of strategy here, so it appeals to casual players and also to beginners. After all, someone playing for the first time has exactly the same chance of winning as a casino veteran who has been playing for 30 years. Read our roulette pages to learn about the different types of wheel and other subtle variations of the game.
- If you thought poker was just for experienced pros who sit around a table smoking cigars, drinking whisky and bluffing one another, you’ve been watching too many movies. The beauty of poker is that there are so many variations. If you are an absolute beginner, three-card poker is the place to start. It is just you against the dealer, so lack of experience will not count against you.
- The game of baccarat is an intriguing one. After almost disappearing into obscurity in the late 20th century, it has suddenly become one of the most popular casino table games of the online era. The rules are not so different to blackjack, but gameplay is actually far simpler as the rules for hitting and standing are predetermined. In essence, you simply have to bet on whether you think the Player or Banker will win each hand.
Other casino table games
These will be enough to keep you busy for a while. But there are also other table games you might want to try out. Sic bo is the dice game that took Asia by storm and seems set to do the same in Europe. Dragon Tiger is a fast and furious version of baccarat that has been dreamt up by the developers at Evolution Gaming.
We even have cribbage – this traditional pub game predates the internet or even TV, and it is unusual to find it in an online casino. But at Mount Gold, we like to be a little bit different to the rest and to come up with some nice surprises for our players. If you’ve never played before, you simply have to give it a try!
