Online Casino Games - Standard games and the more unusual

The internet is full of online casinos with many games. Mostly these are the standard slots, roulette, blackjack and video poker, but you do get some good different games too.

The good thing about online casinos is the variety of games. Yes, there are always the standard games but what if you want something a little different?

A very good place to start with this topic is the casino game blackjack. This is a standard game and everyone knows that it is very popular at land based casinos. There is very little variation in the rules from casino to casino and this is possibly why it is so popular. Everybody knows what to do and where they stand.

In all online casinos you will see a standard blackjack game. But if you look a little closer into the card casino games section you will probably notice there are a few extra games labelled "blackjack" that you have perhaps not heard of.

Popular variations include Blackjack Switch, Blackjack Surrender and Vegas Strip Blackjack. These all offer slight difference to the game play and I personally think that this makes them a little more interesting. For example, in Blackjack Switch you are dealt two hands. Prior to making any hit or stand decision you may "switch" the top cards of your 2 hands. This potentially give you 2 better hands and adds to the fun and the thinking.

Roulette in online casinos comes in a few forms. There is the standard European (single zero) or American (double zero) versions that everybody knows. However you will also find French roulette, mini roulette and Roulette Royal at some online casinos.

Behind slots games, video poker is the next biggest game for online casinos. They are very similiar to slots machine games in their functionality and offer a game of skill on every hand (spin). the idea of video poker is to make a winning hand from 5 cards that you are dealt. You get a single chance to swap none, any or all of your cards before the hand is complete.

You are offered fixed odd for getting a qualifying hand. The name of the game often gives a clue as to what level hand you need to have to obtain a payout. Example is Jack or Better, a very popular video poker where you need to have a minimu 2 jacks in your hand to get paid. Other variations include Aces and Faces, MegaJacks and Dueces Wild, which is the most popular by far.

You can also play multi hand Video Poker with up to 100 hands all played at once. You start with your single hand and choose which cards to hold. if you get dealt 2 aces, then these two aces will hold on all lines meaning a win on all hands being played.

Some more unusual games that you can play very easily in online casinos include:
Sic Bo
Casino War
Wild Viking
Red Dog Poker
These games come with full instructions and offer a fun way to spend an evening, just using small bets to familiarise yourself with the game as you learn. Some offer very good odds and as they are skill games the payouts for good players can be large.
