Table games are the foundation of every type of casino, including online casinos. If you’ve ever stepped foot inside a land-based casino, you’ll have seen a variety of different card and dice games taking place at tables. Well, the same goes here in the Wildz Casino Online. We offer a range of exciting table games that even first-time gamers will be able to get to grips with, from classic blackjack to baccarat.
In a land-based casino, table games are played on – as the name suggests – gaming tables that are typically covered with green felt. Depending on the game, there will be numbered boards, wheels, chips, and cards or dice on the tables too. You’ve undoubtedly already heard of some casino table games, such as poker, blackjack and roulette. Still, there are plenty of other, less-known table games to discover in an online casino too.
Table games in online casinos like Wildz take place on virtual tables using computer-generated graphics. While everything else remains the same, from the rules to the various peripherals involved in playing the game, the great thing with online table games is that you don’t need to leave the house to play them. As well as that, here at Wildz, you can even play in our live casino games, which feature real-life dealers and traditional table games.

Blackjack may well be the most popular table game of all time, and you’ll find it in every casino in the world. That’s typical because the objective of the game is very straightforward; you simply need to beat the dealer by scoring a hand that is as close to 21 as possible. Meanwhile, with blackjack being offered at multiple stake levels, it can be played by gamers on a budget and by high-rollers.
The game starts when you and the dealer are each dealt two cards; while yours will be face-up on the table, at least one of the dealer’s cards will be face-down. You can then choose ‘hit’ as many times as you like to be dealt another card until you decide to ‘stand’ (stop). At that point, the dealer will reveal their cards and the player with the number closest to 21 wins.
At Wildz, our online blackjack games are open 24/7, and you can choose from plenty of different titles, from Classic Blackjack to Blackjack Grand VIP.
Like blackjack, roulette is a table game that’s been around for centuries. Unlike blackjack, however, roulette is a game that is played with a wheel, board and ball rather than a deck of cards. There are several different roulette variants in existence that you’ll find both in land-based casinos and online.
The rules of online roulette are no different to the rules used in traditional roulette. You play the game by choosing a number from 0 to 36 (or 00 in the case of American Roulette), color or section to bet on. The dealer spins the roulette wheel, and after a period in which you can still place wagers, the ball eventually lands on a number. The winners will be the players who have bet on the correct number or proposition, and payouts will vary according to the specific betting odds.
In our online roulette section, you’ll find plenty of roulette games to play like Speed Roulette, Double Ball Roulette and Immersive Roulette.
Aka James Bond’s favorite casino game, baccarat is another popular table game played using a 52-card deck. Similarly to blackjack, a game of baccarat begins when two cards are dealt to the player and the dealer. From there, players have the option to bet on the player or banker (dealer) or even to place a bet on a tie outcome. The objective, as well as to beat the dealer, is to hold no more than three cards that total as close to 9 as possible.
There are several baccarat variants to discover here at Wildz.
Poker is traditionally a game played by multiple opponents, each aiming to win the “pot”. Another staple game in casinos the world over, numerous poker variants exist, starting with the classic Texas Hold’em. Online poker can be found in its original format, but there are also several fresh variants of table poker to discover at Wildz that allow you to compete against the house.
Under classic Texas Hold’em rules, you’ll come across lingo like Deal, Call, Fold, or Check. Don’t worry, these words all relate to the actions that are made during a game. Dealing is when the cards are dealt; when you Call, you’re asking to see another player’s hand and when you Check, the action continues without you making a wager.
If that seems like a lot to start with, just remember that when you play poker, the goal is to make a winning hand with the combination of cards that you’ve been dealt. Some examples of solid poker hands are:
- Royal Flush – ace, king, queen, jack and ten of a suit
- Straight Flush – five suit cards of a consecutive rank
- Four of a kind – four matching number cards
Legend has it that we have the Romans to thank for the casino game Craps. Whether that is indeed true or not, the game itself has a long history, and it’s one of the oldest table games to be found in online casinos.
Craps is a dice game in which the aim is to correctly predict the outcome. There are different types of wagers you can make, which means there’s plenty of variety on offer, and you can use different strategies as you play. Online craps has a low house edge, starting at around .083%, which makes it a favorite amongst gamblers in the know.
