Card Games

We all used to play card games when we were kids, didn’t we, like Durak (Jackass) or Gaper? Do you remember the latter? Each player holds four cards in his hand, and then passes one of them facedown to the player nearby, and so forth circle-wise. He has to pass the “odd” ones, hereby aiming at collecting in his hand the same-picture (or “pip”) cards of all the four suits. The one, who has collected his four cards hand, has to put his hand face down on the table without appearing to do so. The player, who has noticed that the latest (after all the rest have collected their hands) is the loser.

Apart from the so-called family or folk games (as the one described above) there are also the so-called commercial and gambling games. You know that some players are so much liable to the passion of gambling, that they can lose their fortune or become addicted to gambling. The playing cards can simply ruin someone’s life.

As it happened to the main character of Pushkin’s short story “The Queen of Spades”. Some critics value this story like his best work and the most characteristic of him in prose. Firstly, the main character – a young military engineer – lives in an unpretending way, amassing his fortune and staying away from any gambling games. Then, after performing some malign deeds (even with a tragic outcome), he finds out the winning secret of three cards (three, seven, ace). He starts playing Faro – a very popular card game in Russia then-, and bets his entire savings. He is quite lucky at first, but in the end, he mistakenly places his bet on the Queen of Spades, rather than the ace, and loses everything. Hermann goes mad and is committed to an asylum. He answers no questions, but merely mutters with unusual rapidity: “Three, seven, ace! Three, seven, queen!”

We strongly recommend you either to read this story or to watch its screen adaption, where the main theme is of “crime and punishment”. The unscrupulous young man launches along the downward path for the purpose of his financial success (the seduction of the young ward, threatening of the old countess), but by fatal chance, instead of the expected success, he loses not only his well-being but also his sanity. (The last was especially frightening for Pushkin: remember his poem “Oh, save me, God, from going mad”).

Video Poker

We all know, that the confusion of two separate and unlike things may result in something absolutely new and unique. Like green color being an outcome of blue and yellow colors confusion, video poker is an “offspring” of a union between a slot machine and a five-draw poker. A new game has “inherited” the automatic gaming from a slot machine, and card combinations from poker, becoming a unique “best seller” in the gambling industry.

Interestingly, in New York of the far 1891, one could play with a “forefather” of a present gambling machine. It looked like a big metal box, containing five reels with the card symbols on them. It also had a special lever, and in case of a winning combination, a gamer was credited with a cigar or a pitcher of beer.

Surely, modern video pokers are much more complicated, bright, and perfect. There are special computerized consoles in real gambling houses now. Moreover, soft developers have created lots of programs, sites, applications, etc., and, therefore, have enabled gamers to play their beloved video poker everywhere.

As it was mentioned before, video poker rules come from five-card draw poker (the simplest variant of poker). Actually, it is often the first variant usually learned by most new players and commonly played in home games.

There are a few dozens of video poker types, but the most common are the following: Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker Aces and Faces, Bonus Poker, Tens or Better. No matter what game you would choose, you are sure to enjoy it greatly! Please, take an advantage of playing the free modes, If you are not an advanced gamer yet.

Slots (Slot Machines)

What do you fancy when you come across the name “a slot machine”? If you were older than twenty-five, most probably, you would think about gambling machines, because they were the most beloved kids’ entertainment in 1980-1990 years. Kids could play simple games for small fees. The coins had to be inserted into a special opening on the machines named “slots”. Although these entertainment machines, so popular then, have already become outdated, some former players still long for them. As an example, in the novel “Pinball 1973” written by a famous contemporary Japanese writer Haruki Murakami, the main character launched out in search of an old pinball machine, he used to play on, as he wanted to reunite with it. Eventually, he found it in a private collection.

Slot machines are also known as one-armed bandits because they were originally operated by one lever on the side of the machine and because of their ability to leave the gamer impoverished.

Most of the other modern entertainment machines are called “arcades”.

Due to modern technologies, slot game variations, as well as symbol designs, are countless.

Every online casino is offering its visitors dozens of slot games to play.

Fancy yourself in the sparkling Las Vegas (the Entertainment Capital of the World), in one of its marvelous casinos, among numerous players sitting in front of slot machines! Can you hear the sound of numerous coins retrieving back into your pocket? Do you want to play right away? Come on! Do it! You do not need to take a flight! Merely enter the online casino and start clicking. You are advised to start with a free play mode, but to continue – for real money. In the last case, your gain would also be real, tangible.

Craps & Sic Bo

Historians say that people have been gambling since ancient times, and rolling dice was the oldest kind of gambling. Dice were used for foretelling as well. The very first dice were made of animals’ bones and teeth.

Dice were found during excavations of ancient cities around the globe, from ancient Sumer and Egypt to China and India. Ancient Greeks and Romans played dice, and so did Maya, Aztecs, and Incas. Many dice games survived up to now, and two of them – craps and sic-bo – gained worldwide popularity.

Both games date back centuries. A game very similar to Sic Bo was played in ancient China. Craps is a little younger: it is considered the successor of a game called “Hazard”, known in medieval England. Both games came to America with the flow of immigrants and soon became a popular pastime. Nowadays, these two games that originated at the opposite ends of the Eurasia continent, peacefully coexist in the same section of online casinos and are equally loved throughout the world.

Craps is played with two dice, and Sic Bo – with three. For all their differences, for example, in the design of the gaming table or the number of players, both games have the same goal: players bet on a certain outcome of the roll of dice.

Another thing that both games have in common is the fact that both these dice games are almost pure games of chance. In other words, the odds of winning are determined by luck rather than by the skills and experience of the player.

Nevertheless, some players spend years learning how to throw dice in a certain way to get particular combinations; some even claim they sometimes succeed. Well, one way or another, it is a factor of unpredictability that makes dice games so exciting. Isn’t that the reason why people have been playing dice for millennia?

Though you don’t need special skills to play dice, you are advised to try our free play mode first. Good Luck!

Bingo & Keno

Do you like lotteries? If yes, you are in a good company: millions of people love lotteries and enthusiastically take part in them. Lotteries come in numerous formats both offline and online.

Bingo and keno are among the most popular lotteries in the world. Simple rules, exciting but relatively easy process of gaming attract people who wish just to relax after a tiring work and maybe win something – why not?

In bingo, the player’s aim is to match randomly drawn numbers with the numbers printed on a special card. The first person who makes a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line (or, in some kinds of bingo, covers the entire card) calls out “bingo!” and wins the game.

Keno also involves numbers drawn at random (by means of a ball draw or a random number generator in some of the online versions). But, unlike bingo, sections with numbers in keno tickets have to be marked by the player before the ball draw starts. The more numbers on the balls match the pre-marked numbers on the ticket, the more the player wins.

Did you know that both games are pretty old – centuries old, in fact? The game of bingo is very similar to a lottery game “Il Giuoco del Lotto d’Italia” played in Italy as far back as 1530. Keno is even older: a Chinese game with similar rules is mentioned in Ancient Chinese scrolls dated 200th B. C. It is known that this Ancient Chinese “ancestor” of keno helped raise funds to build the Great Wall of China. Nowadays, Churches or charity organizations often stage games of modern bingo to raise funds for various philanthropy projects.

Both games have a great number of variants, each of them slightly different from the others. So, before playing a game of keno or bingo in a particular online casino, you’d better refresh your memory about the rules. Playing a game or two for free before placing real-money bets is also a good idea. Just in case.
