The most important aspect of a casino themed party is casino games. Obviously, without casino games there can be no casino party. Therefore, you need to include all the important casino games for your guests to have a great time at your casino night themed party.
We’ve compiled a list of all the important casino games that you must include in your casino party.
Craps is one of the best casino games for a casino night party. Those who are unfamiliar with the game may find it complicated and hard. In this game, a player rolls the dice and the outcome of the dice decides whether the player wins or loses. In craps, players themselves decide their fate as they are spinning the marble. However, in other casino games someone else usually rotates the wheel or deals the cards for them.
In Craps, the player who must place a bet before game’s first roll is called the shooter. If a certain player wants to become a shooter, then the bet must be placed by him/her on the ‘Pass Line’ or ‘Don’t Pass Bar’. Since the dice passes in clockwise direction, players must wait for their turn to play as a shooter.
Craps is a single or multiplayer game that is best explained as a game that involves multiple rounds and the first roll in a round is called Come-Out-Roll. This round’s duration depends on the number of turn. The shooter is a player who is rolling the dice. Each player in a craps game places their bets on the same dice roll, whether they are other players or the shooter.
Roulette is a casino wheel game in which players either place their bet on colors (black or red) or on numbers. These numbers are either odd or even. To determine the number or color that wins, the wheel is spun in one direction and the ball is spun in the opposite direction by the croupier/dealer. The ball loses momentum slowing and falls on the wheel into any color or number from 1 to 37.
In the Roulette table, there are betting areas that consist of outside and inside areas. In the outside area, there are red or black and odd or even or other group of numbers. On the table, the numbers are arranged in twelve rows of three numbers.
The numbering on roulette wheel pockets goes from 0 to 36. In the numbers from the range of 1-10 and 19-28, all odd numbers have red color while all even numbers are black. In the numbers from the range of 11-18 and 29-36, all odd numbers have black color while all even numbers are red. There is also a green pocket number zero (0) and the second green pocket marked 00.
Roulette has simple rules and it is quite easy to play. When you include roulette in your casino night themed party, both beginners and experienced players can participate with similar chances of winning. In most other casino game, the saying ‘practice makes perfect’ applies, but not in Roulette. Players with good luck will walk away with the prize.
Blackjack is popularly known as “Twenty-One”. Blackjack is one of the most exciting card games. It has been popular since the World War I and it is said that the game was played in France back in 1760 where it was called the Vingt-et-Un. The game’s objective is to achieve a final score higher than that of the dealer without exceeding twenty-one.
Player is on the dealer’s left when the play begins. The player has several choices available. These include:
Stand: Player doesn’t take any card during a draw round.
Double: Player gets another card by doubling his/her bet.
Hit: Another card is drawn by the player. If the total points of a player exceed 21 because of this card, they lose.
Split: In case the player possesses a pair or two cards with ten points, s/he can double their bet and separate the cards they have into two hands. Each card can be given a second card by the dealer. The player here has the freedom to normally stand, double or hit. If, after splitting, a player gets ten and ace, then it is counted as 21 points instead of a blackjack.
Surrender: With surrender, a player gives up half of their wager and keeps the other half while not playing out their hand.
In Blackjack, the value of ace is 1 or 11; the value of Kings, Queens and Jacks is 10; Cards from 2 to 10 have face value and cards suits aren’t relevant.
4. Texas Hold’em Poker
One of most popular casino poker games is Texas Hold’em. This unique casino game is played by many people around the world. In Texas Hold’em Poker each player has five open cards and two private cards. The player receives two cards called the ‘hole cards’ that aren’t visible to any other player. The other 5 cards that are on the table are ‘community cards’. Texas Hold’em Poker commences in a clockwise direction.
Every time after the game, a player moves in a clockwise direction and the player on the left side of previous dealer becomes the new dealer. At the start of the game, the player who is in the dealer’s nearest left automatically becomes a dealer. Once the dealer is chosen, the betting round begins. Four actions can be taken by a player for placing bets in Texas Hold’em poker. These include call, raise, check and fold.
Like other poker games, in Texas Hold’em Poker the strategies and styles of the game get complex in the final stages.
Texas Hold’em Poker is about making best five card combination from the seven cards each player has at their disposal. In order to make the best hand, players are allowed to use one or both or none of their hole cards. The variants of Texas Hold’em Poker are:
No Limit Texas Hold’em: In no limit Texas Hold’em, players are free to bet as there isn’t any limit on betting.
Fixed Limit Texas Hold’em: There’s a limit on the amount that can be bet by a player.
Pot Limit Texas Hold’em: Each player can place a bet on any amount up to the pot’s size.
Texas Hold’em Poker is played with ten players on the playing table. Players try wining as many chips as they can and one pot at a time. A pot can be won by having the best hand or by having all others fold before showdown.
